'PACIFIC RIM' Star Idris Elba On Kaijū's, Stacker Pentecost And Guillermo del Toro
Idris Elba (Thor: The Dark World) discusses his role as Stacker Pentecost in Guillermo del Toro's upcoming sci-fi 'giant robot vs giant monster' epic, "Pacific Rim" which opens July 12.
"He runs what is called the Shatter Dome which is the central base for these amazing robots that spearhead the efforts to fight the kaijū. He's lost his funding, he's lost the support from the world but he alone and his band of fighters keep the fight going. He perseveres, he doesn't want to give up and won't give up."

Rinko Kikuchi Discusses Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM
"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."
