Talk about a monster look at Guillermo del Toro’s highly anticipated sci-fi film Pacific Rim…
The 48-year-old Mexican filmmaker has released a new viral video of the upcoming epic.
Presented as a breaking news report, the clip reveals that a “giant creature” has attacked San Francisco and proceeds to show rapid-fire shots of carnage and chaos throughout the Bay City, including a brief glimpse of the creature destroying the Golden Gate Bridge.
The film, which stars Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman, centers around monstrous creatures known as Kaiju who rise from the sea intent on wiping out mankind.
Robots called Jaegers are subsequently developed and used by humans in hopes of saving the world.
Pacific Rim hits theaters on July 12, 2013.
