I’m guessing there is a good chance Charlie may also show up in some capacity to present the clips for Pacific Rim considering he’ll be around for the Sons of Anarchy panel, which takes place Sunday, July 15th. However, don’t quote me on it, as I’m just guessing. 😛

2:30-5:00 Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Preview Their Upcoming Lineups—Legendary Pictures: Pacific Rim
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure Pacific Rim. 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. Pacific Rim also stars Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day.

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure “Pacific Rim.”

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.

Guillermo Del Toro Invades Toronto; Pacific Rim Filming Already Underway

Guillermo Del Toro Invades Toronto; Pacific Rim Filming Already Underway

In the near future, a portal to another universe opens up five miles beneath the surface of the Pacific, leading to the emergence of myriad monstrosities that relentlessly assault such chaos-magnet metropolises as Los Angeles and Tokyo. To counter the threat, the military develops high-tech mechas to battle the creatures.

The movie looks set to be a homage to the Japanese kaiju genre of movies, most famously exemplified by the Godzilla series. In an interview with Wired, del Toro described the movie as a “very beautiful poem to giant monsters,” as well as prominently featuring “25-story-high robots beating the crap out of 25-story-high monsters.” He also stated that the film would deal with the political and geological ramifications of the sudden appearance of such creatures.

Filming on Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim has now been underway for over six weeks at Pinewood Toronto Studios, taking up five of the complex’s seven soundstages.

In an interview with io9, del Toro revealed that initial filming was for the Hong Kong-set complex where the mechas are maintained and will continue at the studio until April.

Pacific Rim will star Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, and del Toro stalwart Ron Pearlman, and is set to begin its rampage through cinema screens on May 10th 2013.
