New Footage Of This Summer's Pacific Rim Gives Fans Their Most In-Depth Look At The Film Yet (Video)

The attendees of this years WonderCon in Anaheim last month were the first lucky souls to set their peepers on an all-new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's long awaited sci-fi robots vs aliens showdown Pacific Rim, but now the good people of Warner Brothers have given in to public pressure and shared the wealth with us all. The two and half minute clip shows off more of the upcoming summer blockbuster that us mere commoners are likely to have seen, which means more explosions, story analysis and most importantly of all; some good ol' hand-to-hand combat between a creature from the depths of the ocean and a kickass robot.

The video was uploaded on to YouTube earlier today and has already picked up more than it's fair share of views from eager moviegoers. The much-hyped action romp is your classic 'aliens threaten to destroy the human population' scenario, only this time the creatures that have been labelled as being both aliens and from the alien are up against Earth's retaliation; a fleet of human-controlled giant robots. Will Earth's action-packed plan work against the super-organised alien foes? Probably, unless it leaves room for a sequel.
