Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba in Del Toro’s Pacific Rim

It’s still early days for this one, but already news us starting to trickle in, and already the cast list us sounding great. Rinko Kikuchi, Oscar nominated for her role in Babel, has joined Idris Elba (The Wire, Luther, Thor), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses) and Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) in Guillermo Del Toro’s first movie since The Hobbit debacle and since Hellboy II: The Golden Army in 2008.Idris

Pacific Rim starts filming later this year, and us slated for a July 2013 release. The premise is that of a group of humans piloting robots against an alien invasion of earth. With del Toro directing, this sounds like it should be more than your standard Michael Bay blockbuster! In fact, it could be a cracker.
