Watch: New Trailer For Guillermo Del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' Brings More Monsters & Carnage

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist January 7, 2013 at 10:57PM

It's been helluva day for Guillermo Del Toro fans. The director kicked off his Monday talking to journalists about his upcoming "Mama," the horror film he produced starring Jessica Chastain, and of course, the chatty director shared all kinds of tidbits not related to that film at all. With The Playlist he revealed that he was approached for "Star Wars: Episode 7," which he turned down, and that he was planning another studio pitch for "At The Mountains Of Madness." And then he closed things off by walking on stage this evening at CES during mobile company Qualcomm's opening presentation, to help show off the new trailer for "Pacific Rim" which is powered by their processor or something.

It's been helluva day for Guillermo Del Toro fans. The director kicked off his Monday talking to journalists about his upcoming "Mama," the horror film he produced starring Jessica Chastain, and of course, the chatty director shared all kinds of tidbits not related to that film at all. With The Playlist he revealed that he was approached for "Star Wars: Episode 7," which he turned down, and that he was planning another studio pitch for "At The Mountains Of Madness." And then he closed things off by walking on stage this evening at CES during mobile company Qualcomm's opening presentation, to help show off the new trailer for "Pacific Rim" which is powered by their processor or something.

Anyway, mixing some of the viral footage, stuff from the first trailer and some new stuff too, if anything, the movie promises a helluva spectacle next summer. The picture stars Idris Elba, triumphantly leading a group of pilots responsible for giant Jaegers, massive robots that are built to fight off monsters that are rising up out of the ocean. Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and many more round out the cast, who thus far are playing second fiddle to the extensive pyrotechnics on display.

"Pacific Rim" will get you wet in 3D on July 12th. Watch below. [io9]
