As basically a three-word genre mash-up -- monsters vs. robots -- the announcement that Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures were making 'Pacific Rim' didn't really need to offer much more than just that siren-song simple idea. But it did, promising a big canvas for a big talent, the director Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro isn't a household name -- unless you live in Austin -- but he's the outsized outsider genius behind movies like 'Hellboy' and 'Blade 2' as well as films like 'Pan's Labyrinth' and 'The Devil's Backbone.' And while counting down to 'Pacific Rim,' I had the feeling that while it was nice to have someone spending $200 million to make what my inner 12-year-old would no doubt consider the perfect summer movie, my adult self couldn't help but be suspicious of anyone who'd spend that much money on a pre-teen's idea of the perfect summer movie.

Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' hits theaters this Friday, and it's fair to say that everyone involved is a little nervous that this big-budgeted monsters vs. robots movie won't connect with audiences. So now we're getting a near-fifteen minute making-of featurette to sell the film again.

Guillermo del Toro ('Pan's Labyrinth,' 'Hellboy') is about to unleash his monsters on the world in 'Pacific Rim.' Of course, by "monsters" we're referring to both the Godzilla-sized "Kaiju" beasts and the equally gargantuan "Jaeger" robots. For a movie that's as epic as it certainly sounds, we're offering up a prize pack that many a del Toro fan would be thrilled to own.

First, we heard Steven Spielberg and George Lucas warn of a coming change in the way we go to the movies. Then, 'World War Z' had that $50 "Mega Ticket," which gave viewers access to all kinds of additional goodies. Now, Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' is getting in on the action, offering a $20 "SuperTicket" that will include special bonuses. The only catch is that it's for Canadian audiences only.

Are you in the market for some rather taboo remedies? 'Pacific Rim' star Ron Perlman, in character as Hannibal Chau, wants to sell you some rather illicit Kaiju organs to cure what ails you. Whether you're suffering from basic ailments like insomnia, restless leg syndrome, or more embarrassing ones like erectile dysfunction, Chau has the cure for what ails you -- you know, before we all become extinct. Like Chau says, "Just because the apocalypse is here doesn't mean you can't look and feel your best!"

A lot has recently been written on the box office prospects of Guillermo del Toro’s 'Pacific Rim,' which some forecasters think will land with a great big thud in two weeks. However, it looks like it's got some competition in the form of -- wait for it -- 'Grown Ups 2.'

Warner Bros. has released two new clips for their upcoming monsters-vs-robots flick, 'Pacific Rim.' The first clip (above) is an explosive and up-close look at one of the human-piloted giant robots fighting a gigantic alien monster (otherwise known as a Kaiju), and we get to learn what an "elbow rocket" is. Hint: it's pretty fantastic. We also get to see the neural bridge in action, which is when two military pilots' brains are linked through the robot's system, allowing them to coordinate attacks with one another telepathically.

The first official clip for 'Pacific Rim' has been released, and Warner Bros. is taking a decidedly different route with promotion. Rather than focus on all the big robots-vs-monsters action we've seen in the (amazing) trailers, this piece of footage gives us a tense and intimate moment between stars Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba.
