Back in July during San Diego Comic-Con, when thousands of fans started rolling on the ground and speaking in tongues about the robots punching monsters, the general public wasn't privy to the awesomeness that is Guillermo del Toro's "Pacifc Rim."
The first trailer for the jaegers versus kaiju epic launched last night. You can catch the full preview after the jump, and after you do so, start counting down to MTV News' exclusive trailer commentary with del Toro, which premieres tonight!
You (and Guillermo del Toro) have been waiting years to see what movie the visionary director would follow-up "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" with, and "Pacific Rim" is nearly upon us.
The loving ode to the kaiju movies of del Toro's childhood, "Pacific Rim" promises one thing: sweet, sweet monster on robot action, the badass kind, and when the trailer finally debuts at 7 p.m. ET on iTunes, we will finally get a taste.
If that wasn't enough, come on back to MTV News tomorrow for an exclusive trailer commentary from del Toro, who is sure to nerd out in the way that we love him for.

The second trailer for Disney's "Lone Ranger" just hit the web, giving us a better look at what we can expect from the duo of Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer when the western-fantasy hits theaters in July 2013.
Gore Verbinski's take on the iconic hero adds a supernatural spin to his origin story. The set-up for the Lone Ranger hues closely to the traditional version, expect for one aspect. Originally, the Lone Ranger is the sole survivor of an ambush, and Tonto nurses him back to health after faking his death. In the new version, the Ranger is not quite as lucky.

The trailer for Tom Cruise's latest sci-fi action flick, "Oblivion," dropped over the weekend, and like so many of the other previews playing these days, it includes the obligatory "Inception" BRAAAM.
This noise is far from a rare occurrence. Just last week, the new "Star Trek Into Darkness" trailer also featured the same ominous tone that made the previews for the Christopher Nolan joint so memorable.
The recent string of BRAAAMS have brought us back to a video that surfaced in April, which pointed out just how ubiquitous the effect was.

By now, you've likely seen the very first teaser for the return of the Starship Enterprise, but have you seen the Japanese version?
It may sound like an odd question, since you wouldn't expect any major inconsistencies between trailers with such a big release like this, but the Japanese teaser for "Into Darkness" features a very curious and overt reference to one previous "Star Trek" movie in particular: "The Wrath of Khan."

It's been a rough couple of months for Trekkies. Director J.J. Abrams has only tossed a few morsels of "Star Trek Into Darkness"—a three-frame "clip," the official summary, and a mysterious poster—to the starved fans, longing for actual material to discuss before the long-awaited sequel hits theaters in May 2013.
Well, agonize no longer, guys. You won't have to wait until December 14 (when the prologue debuts) to see actual footage from "Star Trek Into Darkness," because a new teaser will hit the web exclusively tomorrow. For those of you who are still traumatized by the shortness of the infamous clip that Abrams debuted on "Conan", TrekMovie confirms that this preview will be a whopping 60 seconds long. And if you still don't believe us, leave it to Simon Pegg (who plays Montgomery Scott) to hop onto Twitter and, you know, just casually tweet the biggest trailer news of the week: "Star Trek Into Darkness trailer. Premieres online, this Thursday. Get ready to boldly go again."
Okay, so now that we're done convincing you that things aren't always too good to be true, it's time to sound off on what we'd like to see in the first (real) official look at the film.
"Jack Reacher" has been floating somewhat out in the ether of action movies. None of the trailers have really fleshed out the plot, which comes from Lee Child's ninth book about the military police officer turned super tough vigilante. Instead, they've mostly focused on how Tom Cruise, his plaid shirts, and his car.
Now a Japanese trailer of all things has finally enlightened us to the full scope of the story and the Werner Herzog at the center of it.

We're only just a few weeks away from the Christmas premiere of Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," but that doesn't mean we wouldn't appreciate another sneak peek at the long-awaited western flick.
Lucky for us, The Weinstein Company debuted the movie's final full-length theatrical trailer (via Yahoo! Movies)—packed with brisk gunshots and plenty of snappy dialogue, the short-but-sweet promo certainly doesn't skimp out on delivering Tarantino's dynamic mix of action and music.
Bullets and whips aside, if you're a Tarantino fan, you'll probably be just as delighted to know that we've also been given a preview of the movie's soundtrack. The list includes tracks by Rick Ross (whose "100 Black Coffins" plays in the aforementioned trailer), Ennio Morricone, James Brown and John Legend, as well as songs from the original 1966 version of "Django" and "Kill Bill."

The last time we saw Jack, he was a giant killer, and he did his thing with metal blaring in the background. Now, Jack's a giant slayer, and the whole affair looks a lot more like "Pirates of the Caribbean."
The new trailer for Bryan Singer's long-delayed "Jack the Giant Slayer" just debuted over at the iTunes trailer page, and when you watch it, you will see a very different version of the preview we saw earlier this year.
This preview gives us an actual idea of what the story is about, shows many of the giants referred to in the title, and introduces a love story.
