First Picture Of Idris Elba In PACIFIC RIM

Click the jump to get your first look at Idris Elba in his futuristic armor for Pacific Rim. The big budget monsters versus robots film is directed by Hellboy's Guillermo del Toro.

MovieHole has scanned an image from the Total Film's new article about Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. Which is featured in the latest issue of their magazine.

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.

Pacific Rim is scheduled for release on July 12, 2013. The cast includes Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr. and Diego Klattenhoff.

I believe it's originally from Total Film magazine.

Can't wait for this movie. The armour looks very much like the N7 armour from Mass Effect.

Wish Idris could be Black Panther

Cross between Iron Man armor and an Accelerator Suit? Not bad, I'll go with it.

In Guillermo I trust.

Black Panther???
ICStoopedPeople - 6/8/2012, 1:26 AM
While I think that suit looks kind of bad, I still have the utmost faith in del Toro.

..still wish we were getting a Lovecraft movie though.

No, I won't let it go FFS.

Hell [frick]ing Yeah!!!

"Wish Idris could be Black Panther"

Umm...he's already playing Heimdall, which is in the same Marvel universe as Black Panther. It might be a little confusing for Thor when he visits Midgard to see Heimdall is Black Panther and vice-versa. :-P Plus he's too old to play T'Challa.

Bad ass...
bonesmcgee - 6/8/2012, 2:08 AM
I hope he keeps his Brit accent.
Bandrews1 - 6/8/2012, 2:09 AM
Looks good, not what I was expecting at all. Its good to see the promotion for this starting to kick in.

Iron Man + Batman + Black Panther = that picture.

"Now, you have my attention"
shiverman20 - 6/8/2012, 2:22 AM
here's hoping they shout "JAEGER BOMB!" when they attack
Ichaos - 6/8/2012, 2:37 AM

@Skerringer I agree. His armor looks straight out of Mass Effect. On that note, he could probably play a younger Admiral Anderson (in flashbacks) if someone was crazy enough to produce a movie.
DaneE5R - 6/8/2012, 3:37 AM

No, it doesn't.
dollstix - 6/8/2012, 3:40 AM

DukeAcureds - 6/8/2012, 5:19 AM
Wait... 2013? We lose another big movie, this year? Man, what if the world ends? We'll never see these movies, then.
Vapes - 6/8/2012, 5:25 AM
Is he reporting to Commander Shepard?
xXxinner - 6/8/2012, 5:37 AM
If the movie is made by Del Toro then i have my hopes on it, he is truly an amazing director
Mysterion - 6/8/2012, 5:38 AM

GreyChaos13Zero - 6/8/2012, 7:22 AM

Opt1mu5Pr1m4l - 6/8/2012, 7:47 AM
The backing for this seems familiar to either gundam or evangelion. Hmmmmmmmmmmm
Dedpool - 6/8/2012, 8:01 AM
Elba would rock th part of Panther I think. Personally I always wanted Djimon Honsou but he's getting a bit too old, but Elba would fit the part I think. Though i have other choices as well.
M6 - 6/8/2012, 8:21 AM
Looks awesome!
AlexDeLarge87 - 6/8/2012, 8:24 AM
Mind blown already!:D

Thats a pretty badass armor.
AlexDeLarge87 - 6/8/2012, 8:25 AM
Idris would make a great Black Panther.
AlexDeLarge87 - 6/8/2012, 8:31 AM
Damn this movie is gonna kick ass!
MisterBabadook - 6/8/2012, 9:02 AM
N7 meets Eva-unit04 armor. Waaaaay sick
Advocate - 6/8/2012, 9:21 AM
Reminds me of Battleship.

hey, what's with this Idris Elba being in EVERY CBMs..?? starting with The Losers..he's been in anything from Thor, Ghost Rider 2, Prometheus and now Pacific Rim..

not that i'm complaining, but, i'm worried that he'd sell himself short, almost like Ryan Reynolds did with Wolverine, GL and R.I.P.D.

i wonder if Marvel would still consider him for a new role in their upcoming Black Panther (THE role I think Elba's meant to do)..??
