Idris Elba looks badass as hell in the first pic from Pacific Rim

After months of teasing and talking, we finally get something more visual from Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM. The first image revealed from the flick is no slouch either, showing off Idris Elba donning a set of sleek futuristic armor. Head on down to check it out.

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.

Apart from Mr. Elba, PACIFIC RIM stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi (below), Charlie Day and Ron Perlman. Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke. It's slated for a July 12, 2013 release.
