In a little more than twenty-four hours, Pacific Rim will hit theaters nationwide. The hotly anticipated blockbuster is co-written and directed by Guillermo del Toro, and stars Idris Elba and Charlie Hunnam. Both actors were on hand for the LA premiere, along with co-stars Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman. Hunnam's and Perlman's Sons of Anarchy co-stars, Katey Sagal and Kurt Sutter, also dropped by to support the film.
Pacific Rim is a science fiction film about an alien invasion that forces mankind to build monsters of their own in the form of giant robots known as Jaegers. The Jaegers are controlled mentally by two pilots simultaneously.
The big budget film is already receiving positive buzz, and currently holds an 80% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That's a step up from the last few blockbusters to hit theaters, which for the most part all hold a rotten rating, so chances are good that Pacific Rim will have a stunning opening!
