Pacific Rim - BFI IMAX Waterloo UK Premiere footage

Pacific Rim

Last night the apocalypse was cancelled as the cast and crew of Pacific Rim descended on London’s BFI IMAX Waterloo for the UK Premiere.

Director Guillermo Del Toro and stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman and Rinko Kikuchi, alongside the likes of director Edgar Wright and Rizzle Kicks, stomped down the red carpet to celebrate the release of Pacific Rim, in cinemas July 12.

About 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.

Pacific Rim, directed by Guillermo Del Toro and starring Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Burn Gorman and Rinko Kikuchi, will be released in UK cinemas on July 12, 2013.
