Idris Elba Will Be Lead In Pacific Rim

by on July 15, 2012












Idris Elba just appeared in sci-fi horror flick Prometheus. Next summer he’s revisiting the genre as the main character in Pacific Rim, directed by Guillermo del Toro.

Here’s how ScienceFiction.com summed up Elba’s role in the film:

In ‘Pacific Rim’ he plays Stacker Pentecost who is one of the humans who pilots the giant robots that go against the giant monsters that emerge from the sea.

Footage was unveiled last week at Comic Con, but you’ll have to wait until July 12 2013 to see the film. Will it be a summer blockbuster?
