Pacific Rim is Guillermo Del Toro’s next movie.

Now that we’ve got your attention, a whole bunch of viral content has been unleashed to plug the film, and all of it is pretty awesome. We’re assuming that this is a build-up to an actual trailer being released, likely in front of The Hobbit. But until then, check out what we’ve got, so far…
