New PACIFIC RIM Photo with Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi

The most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly (via STYD) included a new photo from Guillermo del Toro's giant robots versus giant monsters movie Pacific Rim. It gives us out first look at Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) and Rinko Kikuchi in their robot pilot suits. Hunnam looks completely different, it almost doesn't even look like him. I'm just so used to his look in Sons of Anarchy.

If you're heading out to Comic-Con this year, you'll get a chance to see some of the first footage from this movie, which I'm really looking forward too! I can't wait to see how big these monsters and robots are going to be!

The movie will be released on July 12th, 2013, and it also stars Idris Elba, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr. and Diego Klattenhoff. I know we haven't seen much, but what do you think about the look of this movie so far?

Here's the 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.
