After giving Pacific Rim a brief mention with the Mama short spotted earlier, it’d be rude not to give a heads up for the recent still that has slipped out from the cracks of of Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming bot vs. monster movie.

Set in the not too distant future, Pacific Rim sees humanity on its last legs as it tries to fend off monstrous creatures that have travelled through a gateway located deep beneath the ocean. The only defence against these creatures is in the form of Jaegers; towering robotic contraptions that are manned by two individuals and pack a fair wallop. Even so, these gigantic guardians still don’t seem to be enough to keep the enemy at the bay. The only hope rests on two unlikely partners – US pilot Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and trainee Mako Muri (Rinko Kakuchi) and a legendary Jaeger that could very well be the saviours of the human race.

Now about this still, well there’s not really much on show other than Rinko Kakuchi’s Mako and ultra-cool Idris Elba as Stacker Pentecost. He’s pointing. She’s looking a bit narked and that man on the right is probably playing Galaga. Inspect it below and after you’re done have a good look at the trailer and prepare yourself when Pacific Rim cancels the apocalypse July 12.
