This isn’t just the first look at how Idris Elba will look in the film, I do believe it is the first image at all from Guillermo Del Toro’s Upcoming Giant Robo vs Kaiju Monster battle film. There are very few directors who get an automatic ticket purchase guarantee from me. Del Toro is one of those few directors. I can’t wait to see what he’s got in store!
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.
