VIDEO: First Look at Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim”

Let’s be clear, it appears to be unfinished footage, but what you can see from “Pacific Rim” after the jump may surprise you!

The clip, which you can see below, may be pre-viz or test footage, but Guillermo del Toro is really helping to build anticipation for his sci-fi actioner. The awesome scale presents a challenge that is met by the acclaimed director. If you know anything about the project, cinephiles have been anticipating seeing the Jaegers: 25-storey fighting machines that are mentally bonded with human pilots.

The video is worth watching even if you’re not an anime fanboy, since it’s always awesome to see the “Hellboy” director do an interview. Press play and enjoy the video below:

“Pacific Rim” stars Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam and, of course, Ron Perlman. It’s currently in post-production.
