Come on, that’s better than sex right? O.K no, but it’s a close second damn it! Message from the legendary del Toro...
“This was originally intended for only WonderCon, but after listening to so many of you asking for more of the movie online, I think it's time for me to show you more footage. Enjoy, my friends!
- Guillermo del Toro”

We cannot thank you enough Mr. Del Toro sir. The year of sci-Fi heroics firmly back on track with Iron Man Three (after the gorgeous, but disappointing Oblivion let us down) Pacific Rim may have been falling off the radar a little bit. With Man of Steel, Star Trek Into Darkness & Thor stealing the sci-fi / comic book headlines thanks to some pretty exciting trailers and teases, we needed to be reminded why Giant robots versus giant Monsters is a cool thing, especially if you are with the majority of people and didn't spend many a misspent hour watching Japanese cartoons. 

“When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes--a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)--who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.”
