Opening July 12, Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming sci-fi spectacle tale “Pacific Rim” features plenty of visual fireworks as towering Jaegers face off against menacing kaiju. But there’s some rivalry among the gifted Jaeger pilots who battle the ferocious beasts as well.

In this new clip from the film, Charlie Hunnam’s Raleigh Becket meets Rob Kazinsky’s tough guy Chuck Hansen over a meal, and, well, let’s just say they don’t immediately become fast friends.

Written by Del Toro and Travis Beacham, “Pacific Rim” features an ensemble cast led by Hunnam (known to many from his turn on the acclaimed FX drama “Sons of Anarchy”), Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi and Burn Gorman, with Kazinsky and Max Martini playing father-son pilots. (Kazinsky, of course, also can be seen on this season of HBO’s “True Blood.”)

Del Toro regular Ron Perlman shows up, too, in “Pacific Rim,” delivering a smaller turn as the outrageously monikered Hannibal Chau, a black-market dealer of kaiju anatomy who resembles a futuristic glam-rock pimp.
