Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim debuted a trailer at this year’s WonderCon, and it blew the roof off the Anaheim convention center. It showcases plenty of new footage for the upcoming giant-monsters-vs-giant-robots film, and now that trailer has landed online. The new trailer provides a lot more story, and the visuals are stunning. This definitely feels like a movie that yearns to he watched on the big screen.

The film also stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Clifton Collins Jr., Idris Elba, and Ron Perlman. Pacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12th.

Official synopsis for Pacific Rim:

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.
