Idris Elba is big enough for 'Pacific Rim' monster

Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim looks like it’s going to be bigger than the monsters (Kaiju) and the giant robots (Jaegers) being manned to defeat them. At least that’s what Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures are hoping.

We have to wait until July 12 to witness the battle but, until then, cool clips are emerging to sate our hunger. In this new one, commanding officer, Stacker Pentecost (Idris Alba, who we still think would be a badass Twelfth Doctor), proves that he’s a no-nonsense leader. There’s a lot at stake with this war and we think the casting of Alba was spot on.

Fun fact: Tom Cruise was up for the same role.

Will you delve into the future to check out the action-packed film?
