To celebrate the release of Guillermo del Toro’s monster epic PACIFIC RIM, in UK cinemas TODAY, we’ve a whole host of interviews with cast.
The latest is this video interview with Luther and Prometheus actor Idris Elba, who talks about his role as commander of the Jaeger pilots, Stacker Pentecost in Pacific Rim.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that took millions of lives and consumed 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. But in the face of the relentless Kaiju, even the Jaegers prove defenseless. 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.
