Watch a new trailer for Pacific Rim

A second trailer for Guillermo del Toro's monstrous blockbuster Pacific Rim has arrived online - and you can watch it here!

A futuristic epic about the clash between mankind and interdimensional baddies the Kaiju, Pacific Rim is set to be Del Toro's most ambitious project - and judging by the visual effects on show, his most expensive as well.

Due for release in the UK in July 2013, Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Idris Elba.

Here's the official synopsis:

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' epic sci-fi action adventure Pacific Rim.

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.
