Next summer in Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim will see humanity under siege by legions of monstrous creatures known as the Kaiju. These humongous beasts are so dangerous that their decomposing bodies melt cities, which is in itself a weapon of mass destruction.

To answer this threat, mankind creates gigantic beasts of their own, massive robots called the Jaegers.

A promotion video for Guillermo Del Toro's production company has landed online which may give us out first look at the Jaegers.

It's also thought that the Pacific Rim trailer will debut on December 14th with The Hobbit.

The Jaeger footage hits around the 1:15 mark.

Pacific Rim opens July 12th, 2013, directed by Guillermo Del Toro, starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman.

Synopsis:

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.
