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.

Guillermo del Toro's 'Pacific Rim' looks like the fevered dreams of a kid who stayed up too late watching Japanese movies and cartoons, and we mean that as a compliment. The film is set to open in a little over two weeks, and now there's a new trailer that plays up the stakes.

Now that 'Man of Steel' is on the verge of opening, we can turn all of our anticipation in the general direction of 'Pacific Rim,' which still looks like the film to beat this summer.

What do 'Man of Steel' and 'Pacific Rim' have in common? Well, they're both two of the most anticipated films of the summer, they're both geek bait of the highest order, they're both directed by extremely talented directors with unique visual styles and they're both from Warner Bros., who may very well come out of this season as the biggest winner in Hollywood. New action-packed TV-spots from both films do nothing to temper our excitement.

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. The latest featurette allays our fears by playing up the "neural handshake" that happens between the Jaegers co-pilots.

"F--- yeah!" That was Guillermo del Toro's response when Legendary Entertainment CEO Thomas Tull asked him if he could come up with another great idea for 'Pacific Rim 2.' The first one hasn't even hit theaters yet (is set for a July 12 release) but the decision was made a while back to start work early on a follow-up, and now the first kernels of a story have dropped from del Toro himself.
