In 'Hellboy' director Guillermo del Toro's new movie 'Pacific Rim', which opens in cinemas on July 12, humanity is reeling from a surprise attack by terrifying giant monsters from the deep. There's only one way for man to fight back: build massive military robots - or Jaegers - to battle the creatures on their own turf. In this exclusive clip, del Toro talks us through the complex design process for these skyscraper-sized mechanical giants, from first sketches and models to the eye-popping, digitally-generated final result.

By the time ‘Pacific Rim’ is released in 2013, it’ll be five years since Guillermo del Toro directed a movie. Five years of missed opportunities, studio interference, announced projects, withdrawn projects, frustration and heartache.

I swear as soon as this gets released (in 3D would be preferable) i am going to be running to the nearest cinema that's showing it like a maniac
