'Pacific Rim' Trailer From WonderCon Hits the Web

The Wrap

If you love movies about fighting robots, then you are living in the golden age of American cinema. But forget "Transformers" and "Reel Steel" -- "Pacific Rim" director Guillermo del Toro is setting out to scale Iron Man down to the size of a child's toy.

A trailer for potential summer blockbuster "Pacific Rim" was released at WonderCon in Anaheim in March. The footage has finally hit the web.

The movie takes place many years in the future when Earth is under attack by monsters. Where exactly, you ask? Well, in the titular Pacific Rim. The overgrown aliens came from the depths of the ocean, as huge monsters have tended to reside recently.

So humans did the only thing they could do -- employ giant robots to fight back.

"Pacific Rim" stars Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman from "Sons of Anarchy," with Idris Elba and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's" Charlie Day. Cancel the apocalypse in Real3D and IMAX on July 12.
