Pacific Rim has one of summer 2013’s simplest blockbuster sells: giant robots versus giant monsters.
The monsters that are threatening Earth (and its inhabitants) are Kaiju: high-rise-sized aliens that have transported in through a portal in the Pacific. Humanity has to craft a pretty epic weapon for the fight back: Jaegers.
Jaegers are equally giant mechas, controlled by two human pilots working in tandem through a mental connection known as 'The Drift'.

For the answers, watch our Pacific Rim videos below:
We also asked them about their favourite movie monsters, and will be revealing that video soon.
Pacific Rim opens in the UK on 12 July 2013. Read our Pacific Rim review .
