It's been a long time since we've seen new footage for "Pacific Rim," Guillermo del Toro's alien vs. robot film.
Warner Bros. released an extended trailer for the film today, one that was originally intended to be shown at film convention WonderCon.
In a note accompanying the trailer, del Toro explained the reasoning behind releasing the trailer:
"This was originally intended for only WonderCon, but after listening to so many of you asking for more of the movie online, I think it's time for me to show you more footage. Enjoy, my friends!"
The film feels a lot like "Transformers" taking on aliens from "Cloverfield."
"Pacific Rim" is in theaters July 12.
