Rinko Kikuchi in Pacific Rim (2013) Movie Image

Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” smashes buildings and each other with their kaiju infestation and giant battlin’ robots this July. Until then, check out a handful of new images from the upcoming sci-fi monster pic.

In a USA Today profile, Del Toro compares his movie to a Western, and the kaiju and robots to gunfighters:

Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and other Jaeger pilots are deemed “riders,” and when they move in the suits to put their machines in motion, “we made it a point to put the sound of spurs like a cowboy,” del Toro says.

The Jaeger station is “basically the Alamo,” del Toro says, and there are rangers and marshals within it — most notably Marshal Stacker Pentecost, a spiritual, moral leader played by Idris Elba. “He’s not playing second banana. He’s at the center of the conflict. He’s the only guy who cannot give up.”

The director likens the faceoffs between Jaegers and Kaiju to a pair of gunfighters in a duel — although the monsters come packing more than just a six-shooter. One of them shoots corrosive lava out of his mouth.

“Pacific Rim” stars Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Clifton Collins Jr., Max Martini, Robert Maillet, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, Heather Doerksen, Larry Joe Campbell, and takes it out into the streets July 12, 2013.

    On paper this thing looks sooo good. Definitely hope it does better his Hell Boy outings. The guy is really good, but mainstream just might be his thing.
