Here’s a character poster for Idris Elba’s character in the Warner Bros./Guillermo del Toro-directed epic sci-fi adventure film Pacific Rim, which will be released on July 12th2013.

The film is set in a future in which malevolent creatures threaten the earth, as the planet must band together and use highly advanced technology to eradicate the growing menace.

Idris Elba co-stars in this adventure, playing a character known as PPDC Marshal Stacker Pentecost, commanding officer of star Charlie Hunnam‘s character.

I should note that Tom Cruise was initially attached to play Stacker Pentecost, before he left the project and Elba took over.

Travis Beacham wrote the screenplay for Pacific Rim, and Legendary Pictures’ Jon Jashni and Thomas Tull are producing.

It’ll be released in 3D of course.

I’m a fan of director Guillermo del Toro’s work, so curious about this one.
