Get ready to fight some aliens! The trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s alien invasion flick Pacific Rim has dropped online.

The effects-heavy trailer gets down to business as humankind battles a hostile alien takeover of our planet. But there’s a twist: these aren’t extraterrestrial beings from outer space, they’re monster alien invaders who have emerged from deep in the seabed where they’ve been lying in wait, planning their attack on the surface world. It’s Avatar-meets-Transformers as humans create giant machines to remotely in fight the invading alien monsters called “Kaiju” in the battle for Earth.

That’s right. It’s robots versus monsters. Alien monsters. Get excited.

Watch the trailer and see the full-size poster after the jump! »
