'The Simpsons' is entering its 25th year of existence, as hard as that is to believe, and to help celebrate, the show's creators will be appearing at San Diego Comic-Con 2013.

Though the advertising for Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' has mostly focused on the epic battles between monsters and giant robots (which are called Jaegers), we're curious if there is more going on in the movie that just large scale smackdowns.
