Pacific Rim trailer shows giant mechas punching giant monsters and it's awesome



The trailer for Guillermo del Toro's kaiji-bashing Pacific Rim has finally hit the internet and it looks amazing. Ok, I'll level with you: I'm a big Godzilla fan already so I was already won over at the mere announcement of this film, but holy crap look at this trailer. Did you see the Jaeger punch that huge monster in the face? Bad-ass.

The plot revolves around a dimensional fissure in the Pacific ocean that allows massive beasties to come through into our world to wreak havoc and chaos all manner of destruction. However, we humans decide to fight back by building huge whopping mechas, called Jaegers, to lay the smackdown on these giant underwater hooligans.

Pacific Rim is due out July 2013.
