Pacific Rim feels so far away, and that’s because it kind of is.  We’re a little under two months until the movie’s release, and there are plenty of blockbusters before Guillermo Del Toro‘s monsters-vs-robots picture hits the big screen.  But Warner Bros. is already making sure that TV audiences are aware of the flick, and the first TV spot has been released.  There’s some new footage in here, but every thing I’ve seen just leaves me with the same thought: I need to see this on a movie screen.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot.  The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron PerlmanPacific Rim opens in 3D on July 12th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Pacific Rim:

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end.  To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.  But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.  On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past.  Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
