Warner Bros. has released a new clip from Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific RimÂ featuringÂ Charlie Hunnum as Raleigh Becket and Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori. According to the synopsis, the duo is our only hope against those monstrous creatures called Kaiju. But before they can battle them, they have to battle each other.Â
In the following scene, Raleigh puts Mako through the wringer. He's a former pilot looking for a partner, and she's an untested trainee. They engage in combat and are constantly trying to one-up each other. Mako may not have much experience, but she's no pushover. Her natural skills shine through, and she quickly proves herself to her superiors.
It looks like neither actor held back in this scene. They freely toss each other around like rag dolls. Watch the clip below and see for yourself.
Pacific Rim opens in theaters July 12.
