Guillermo del Toro has released a new behind the scenes featurette titled Deep Space for his epic new film Pacific Rim. The video is introduced by the director, and it features the cast and crew talking about the film while showing off some cool footage from it. They also discuss how the Jaegers  are operated by a two-pilot system, where both individuals must form a neurological bridge with both the machinery and each other.

“When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes — a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee — who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.”

The film stars Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Robert Kazinsky, Max Martini, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Brad William Henke and Diego Klattenhoff.

Get ready to cancel the apocalypse on July 12th in 3D, IMAX 3D and 2D
