The second installment in “Pacific Rim’s” character introduction campaign has arrived. After already showing off Charlie Hunnam’s character Raleigh Becket, codename Gispy Danger, a new image featuring Idris Elba’s PPDC Marshal Stacker Pentecost premiered online.
Expect more of these character-specific images to continue to roll out as we get closer to “Pacific Rim’s” release date. There are a lot of exciting actors taking part in “Pacific Rim,” so it will be nice to see each of them get their time in the spotlight.
“Pacific Rim” stars Idris Elba, Hunnam, Charlie Day, Kikuchi, Max Martini, Willem Dafoe, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., Diego Klattenhoff and Ron Perlman. It’s due in theaters on July 17, 2013. Here’s the official synopsis:
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.
But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
