New ‘Pacific Rim’ trailer highlights the action and massive scale of the Sci-Fi film

Pacific Rim is one of the most anticipated films for summer 2013, and a new trailer has dropped online and debuted this weekend.

Director Guillermo del Toro’s latest film pits monsters versus robots.

The film centers the exploits of a group of highly trained pilots who control giant mechas (Jaegers) in a battle against enormous alien beings (Kaiju) that have emerged from the Pacific. Again, to summarize: it’s giant robots versus even bigger monsters.

Earlier trailers have revealed giant set-pieces on a massive scale, but the latest promo footage is even more engaging.

It begins by laying out the global scale of the threat (it doesn’t all go down in the US…), and goes on to give a fresh look at some of the enemy beasties. There’s an impressively varied bunch on displayed: winged, horned, gorilla-esque…

The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman.

Pacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12th.
