A new trailer for Pacific Rim provides a more detailed look at the movie's giant robots. Plus: fighting...

At first glance, this new Pacific Rim trailer, which debuted at the Computer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, looks remarkably similar to the one we saw a few weeks ago. Closer inspection, however, reveals some new shreds of footage, including a closer look at how humans interface with those huge robots.

Director Guillermo del Toro's said before that Pacific Rim is his poem to giant monster movies, and from what we've seen so far, it's clear that both he and his army of artists have paid close attention to giving the film's mecha a real weight and patina.

So far, though, we've only seen brief flashes of the monsters those robots (or Jaegers) fight - is that something we'll see in future trailers, we wonder, or will they be left as a surprise for the main feature? While we're eager to see more, we're quietly hoping the latter is true.

Pacific Rim opens on the 12th July in the UK.
