Pacific Rim Behind-the-Scenes Featurette: Watch Now!

by at . Comments

Guillermo Del Toro thinks it's important to ground a giant green-screen movie in some realistic, terrestrial mechanics.

As such, he built a real, working robot cockpit for his actors to be jostled around in mercilessly. I'm sure they appreciate the realism.

Learn all about it in the new Pacific Rim featurette:

The movie takes place in the near future, after Earth is attacked by giant monsters that emerge from the sea.

In order to combat them, the humans build a series of giant manned robots called Jaegers.

Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Ron Perlman star.

Pacific Rim premieres July 12.
