Four new shots from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim surface

Some considerate member of the Superhero Hype forum scanned a few new PACIFIC RIM images from the latest issue of Empire Magazine. We'd be real jerks not to share them with you.

The images show off actors Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba and Charlie Day; no "kaiju" or "Jaegers," unfortunately, but obviously Warner Bros. is going to save the giant robots and monsters for a later date. Flick doesn't come out until next summer, after all. (Still, I'd love to get another look at the teaser trailer shown at Comic-Con. That was a beauty.)

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.

Guillermo del Toro's film, which opens JULY 12, 2013, stars Charlie Hunnam (TV’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Idris Elba (“Thor”), Rinko Kikuchi (“The Brothers Bloom”), Charlie Day (“Horrible Bosses”) and Ron Perlman (the “Hellboy” films).
