Idris Elba Lays Down the Law in First Pacific Rim Clip

I’m dying to see Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim”. The 12-year old kid in me goes squeeeeeeeeee every time I see a new TV spot or clip or image from this movie. Now I know how those “Twilight” kids feel! With the film set to open next month, you’re going to be seeing a lot more clips from “Pacific Rim”. Here’s the first one, which finds Idris Elba confronted by Charlie Hunnam’s male lead.

The lesson to take away from this clip? Never, EVER touch Idris Elba unless he specifically asks you to. Got that?

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes the sci-fi action adventure “Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures 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.

Starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, and Ron Perlman.
