I had been keen to see Pacific Rim for the monsters, entertainment and Guillermo Del Toro’s masterful world building, but now I’ve seen the image above, I’m thinking there’s another reason I’ll be showing up when it opens July 12th.
The image was released to JustJared and shows British actor Charlie Hunnam looking incredibly pretty with his shirt off – I think it’s safe to say he’s spent plenty of time in the gym. He plays one of the pilots of the film’s enormous robots, which humanity has built to fight gargantuan monsters that are spilling out of the Pacific.
You can watch the latest trailer here. And while we’re here, why not watch a new featurette, about the monster attacks (and featuring more Hunnam hotness) below. Charlie’s certainly come a long way since the day he was young Nathan in the UK’s Queer As Folk.
