'Pacific Rim' Grab Brag: 3 Clips, 2 Posters, and a Featurette

Yippee ki-Jaeger, motherkaiju.

With less than two weeks until Pacific Rim stomps into theaters, we have a huge haul of promotional nuggets for Guillermo del Toro's monster mash that aims to be the biggest event during a season of big events.

For your viewing pleasure, we have a featurette that sells the tar out of Pacific Rim, three official clips, and even a pair of posters featuring a Jaeger and a Kaiju.

Del Toro's first feature since Hellboy II: The Golden Army arrives on July 12th, and with many of this summer's heaviest hitters out of the way, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are now kicking up a whole lot of dust promoting Pacific Rim.  So far, much of the marketing has focused on Jaegers in combat with Kaiju, which makes sense, but the movie isn't just a procession of big CGI action sequences.  There's plenty of huge sequences, but Pacific Rim is undeniably a del Toro movie, packed with distinctive characters, a peculiar sense of humor, and an abundance of personality.

As Charlie Hunnam so adroitly explains in this featurette, "You have a real story, with interesting characters that you're going to follow, that's punctuated once in awhile with these giant spectacular setpieces of robots fighting monsters."  Amen, brother.

Moving on.  The clips alone are worth the nonexistent price of admission, as they feature well-orchestrated action, a rocket punch, and Ron PerlmanPacific Rim is a movie smart enough to know that it's a good idea to put Perlman and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Charlie Day.  It's also strange enough to actually put them together, as you can see in the second clip below.

And finally, we have two new posters covering both sides of the Kaiju-Jaeger war.
