Massive new trailer for Pacific Rim: watch now

Pacific Rim is one of the most keenly anticipated films on Total Film 's radar for summer 2013, and an epic new trailer has dropped online.

For any latecomers to the party, Guillermo del Toro's latest film concerns the exploits of a group of highly trained pilots who control giant mechas (Jaegers) in a battle against enormous alien beings (Kaiju) that have emerged from the Pacific. In short, it's giant robots versus even bigger monsters. Where do we sign up?

Earlier trailers have promised giant set-pieces on a preposterous scale, but the latest promo footage is even more tantalising.

It begins by laying out the global scale of the threat (it doesn't all go down in the US...), and goes on to give a fresh look at some of the enemy beasties.

There's an impressively varied bunch on displayed: winged, horned, gorilla-esque… you name it.

Check out the new Pacific Rim trailer below:

Grounding the larger-than-life carnage are cast members Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba.

Pacific Rim stomps into UK cinemas on 12 July 2013.
