In Pacific Rim, hot British actor Idris Elba helps save humanity from giant sea-dwelling aliens by giving an intensely rousing speech in which he declares, “Today we are canceling the APOCALYPSE!”
The speech was probably really easy for Elba to nail because based on these photos he’s been canceling horrible things forever.
Pacific Rim is director Guillermo Del Toro‘s passion project about humanity uniting to build giant robots to defeat humungous aliens (called “kaijus”) who rise from the sea. Idris Elba plays hero Stacker Pentecost, but he’s been a hero in our hearts for a while now.
