Pilot a Jaeger in This ‘Pacific Rim’ Clip

I absolutely love behind-the-scenes footage from big special-effects films; the intricacy of green-screen work fascinates me, so this footage detailing the hard work that went into making Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim is like candy to me.

The maestro himself details how he shot actors Idris Elba and Charlie Hunnam in the control pod of one of the giant robots (known as Jaegers) tasked with saving the world from giant monsters (kaiju).

Pacific Rim opens July 12, and I’d like to be first in line for this robo-thriller.
