New ‘Pacific Rim’ trailer crushes monsters

Godzilla doesn’t stand a chance. The new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim debuted at a pretty unusual place – Qualcomm’s CES presentation in Las Vegas. There’s an odd little bit of product placement going on with the movie, as Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon chips are powering the giant robots – known as “Jaegers” – in the movie. So Warner Brothers put together a new trailer for the event and it’s pretty badass. If you haven’t been paying attention, the general plot of the movie is that gigantic monsters called “kaiju” rise from the ocean to smash humanity and only some brave robot pilots can stop them. Pacific Rim opens on July 12th.
