New Pacific Rim trailer launches online: watch now

Release the Jaeger!

Pacific Rim has released a brand new trailer online, in which all hell breaks loose in the war between humans, their giant robots and the monster aggressors known as Kaiju.

Like many before it, the trailer goes big on action, showing several clashes between Jaegers and Kaiju, and the ensuing destruction that goes with such a face-off.

However, what sets this trailer apart is the fact that the mayhem is underscored by the full version of Idris Elba’s “today we are cancelling the apocalypse” speech. Goosebumps ahoy!

Take a look at the new trailer, below:



In a film of such large-scale spectacle, it'd be easy to worry that the characters might get lost amid the carnage, but this latest trailer is enough to convince us that the human element will also come to the fore.

After all, robots fighting monsters are far more enjoyable when preceded by a rousing battle speech!

Directed by Guillermo del Toro and co-starring Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Charlie Day, Pacific Rim will open in the UK on 12 July 2013.
