'Pacific Rim' Trailer Packs in Alien Mayhem

Get a first look at Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming sci-fi action flick

By |

Fans at last month's WonderCon were treated to an exclusive screening of the trailer for Pacific Rim, the new sci-fi action flick from director Guillermo Del Toro, and that sneak peek has now been released in full. Packed with all sorts of massive, glorious destruction, the film finds Earth under attack from an onslaught of undersea alien invaders that can only be beaten back by man-helmed machines. It's "2,500 tons of awesome," as Charlie Day (who plays Dr. Newton Geiszler) puts it – a statement more or less summed up by the image of a robot bashing a monster with a cargo ship.
