Idris Elba shows why he's the man in this Pacific Rim clip

In this first official Pacific Rim clip, Idris Elba shows Charlie Hunnam why he's the man in charge. I'm thinking that the girl Charlie's talking about has been the Asian one seen in the majority of the Pacific Rim trailers. And Idris is obviously head of the Jaeger program to build the giant robots. I love it when he holds the finger to his ear. "Do I make myself clear?" Only acceptable answer: "Yes, sir."

I wish I had thought of a story of giant robots bashing monsters, and I'm totally serious. I think a story like that would be incredibly entertaining to write.

Oh July 12th, you cannot get here soon enough. #soexcited

Have a nice weekend. It's supposed to be 100+ degrees every day here in Salt Lake City. I like warm weather, but that's too hot. I'm going to stay indoors with the curtains drawn to keep the sunlight out and the a.c. on. I just hope it's cooler in August when I have to move out of my apartment :(. Alas, the rent has skyrocketed.
READ MY OTHER ARTICLES ABOUT PACIFIC RIM:
Pacific Rim just in time for Christmas. In this article I analyze the different blueprints for the Jaegers and speculate as to their powers!

Thank you Pacific Rim for giving us rockets on the elbow. In this article I'm excited about the first official trailer that has a Jaeger punching a kaiju, augmented by rockets to provide even more thrust. Genius in my humble opinion.

Pacific Rim using a cargo ship as a baseball bat.... The name should say it all, but I wrote this article as an analysis of all the way interesting things that appear in another trailer.

Pacific Rim's focus on size proves it's the man card dispensing movie of the decade. Pretty much I just wanted to post a cartoon pic of a huge robot with a crane standing in for an erection.

If Grown Ups 2 beats Pacific Rim at the box office I lose all faith in humanity. I wrote this to pretty much bitch as to how Grown Ups 2 seems to be generating more interest than this $200 million dollar masterpiece of pure testosterone combined with awesome.

Idris Elba is an awesome actor. Very commanding loved him in that BBC series.

Can't wait to see this movie, even if it is for the guys!

So are you moving to another apartment or did you finally find a house? My rent kept going up too which is why I had to move to a cheaper, crappier place. Lousy economy recovery.

@PT: Didn't find a house. The one I wanted went to a couple that cheated to get it. Really left a sour taste in my mouth. When it comes to money, ppl will lie, cheat, and steal to get what they want. Next time I look for a home, I'm going with a shankster thief as a real estate agent to level the playing field. Honest Joe just gets screwed in today's world.

I hope they were mining asteroids for all the materials to make those robots.

Julie Flanders said...

Oh I LOVE Idris Elba! Absolutely loved him on The Wire and now also love him on Luther. He's awesome. I'm sure I'll hit replay several times on this clip. :D

one of the words in the film title always brings a naughty smile on my face :)

Idris Elba doesn't get enough credit. The video game RAD and cartoon MegasXLR both knew giant robots kicking butt was awesome long before this movie. Glad Hollywood finally caught on.

Matthew MacNish said...

Love Idris Elba. Stringer Bell from The Wire is one of the greatest characters in the history of TV or film.

Theresa Milstein said...

I'm sorry your rent has skyrocketed and you have to move. Stay cool.

Have a great weekend!

Mina Burrows said...

Christine Rains said...

This is the one movie I really want to see on the big screen this year. Hey, I think a story about giant robots fighting monsters would be awesome! Have a great weekend.

Liz said...

Idris Elba. Sigh.

Stay cool.

Misha Gericke said...

Ooh Pacific Rim looks awesome. I was literally drooling when I saw the trailer in 3d the other day.

Stephen Hayes said...

I hope you find a suitable place to live. So many people are seeing their rent skyrocket. Good luck with your search.

It is, of course, raining here in the UK. Enjoy your heat.

Moody and I are sharing similar weather patterns. It's rainy and cold in F-land. Sorry to hear about the rent. Moving can be a pain in the ass. Have a good weekend, stay cool and thanks for the clip, it was excellent. (:

J.L. Campbell said...

Okay, so now I know I gotta see Pacific Rim. Idris Elba is the boss as we say here. :)

tfwalsh said...

Haven't seen it, but would love to... will have to check it out me thinks:) Keep cool in the hot weather... it's freezing down in Australia and the rains just won't go away.

When I saw the trailer for "Pacific Rim" before Man Of Steel, I immediately texted The Boy and got him set to babysit that night.

THEN, all my staff members picked July 12 as the night for our first ever firm softball outing. "Oh, well," I said, "I'll see it Saturday." BUT, The Boy is our only babysitter available that weekend, and he has to babysit on the softball night, so I won't get to see it that weekend, which means in all likelihood I will not see this until it's on Netflix, for my-life-related reasons, which means I am going to have to ask the ENTIRE INTERNET to please not talk about it much for 6-8 months, to avoid spoiling it for me.

Thanks in advance for your anticipated cooperation.

Now I know his name,

Hola Mike.

Sorry you have to move; that sucks. I hope you find something decent and not too expensive :)

Dawn Simon said...

Oh, man--that's too hot. Good luck staying cool.

That stinks about the rent. I hope you like your new place! :)
