We’ve been waiting for the trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim since rumors first surfaced that the stellar Mexican director was working on a giant robot sci-fi film. That long wait comes to an end this morning. In the film Earth is attacked by the famed Godzilla-like kaiju or “giant monsters” that have snuck in to this dimension via an underwater portal. The Earth’s only defense are — you guessed it — giant Gundam-like robots called Jaegers. Featuring Del Toro’s superlative creature design (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, etc), Pacific Rim looks like it could be one of the best films of 2013.
