The unfortunate souls that didn't make it into Hall H for the big unveiling of Guillermo del Toro's monsters-versus-robots battle royale, "Pacific Rim," missed out on an explanation of a key detail that is sure to give the movie a lot of its emotional heft.
Trailers for "Pacific Rim" show two suited pilots at the controls of the skyscraper-tall jaegers that battle the invading kaiju, which caused some people to ask why there needed to be more than one and even some accusations of cheap plot devices. In reality, the two-person team exists because of the enormity of the machine they're controlling.
As a new featurette (via IGN) explains, the neural bridge made to pilot the jaeger reveals the entire content of one person's brain to the other, in order to completely synchronize the two. We see in some footage that early experiments with one pilot ended badly, thus the two-pilot system was born.
"Pacific Rim" opens in theaters on July 12.
With the premiere of "Part III" in theaters tomorrow, the epic saga of "The Hangover" will come to a close. The comedy franchise launched the careers of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis and countless in-jokes about Wolfpacks and questions about why they're called ruffies.
The "Hangover" movies have also inspired their fair share of spoof videos, including this latest one from the folks over at Next Movie. What would happen if a group of toddlers had one wild night and did whatever they wanted? The answer is pretty adorable.
Check out the video above!
"The Hangover Part III" opens in theaters tomorrow, May 23.

If you've ever seen how Schwarzenegger talks about his movies, especially the "Total Recall" audio commentary, you know how fun it can be.

It's pretty safe to say that the people portrayed in the true-life drama, "The Bling Ring," don't exactly have their priorities in line. The movie, which is tearing it up in Cannes right now, tells the story of a group of L.A.-based teens who want to live the life of a celebrity, so they do the next best thing by breaking into their homes.
A new clip from "The Bling Ring" gives us a unique look inside the psyches of these criminally dubious teens via their dream board.
Check out the clip and find out what the girls like about Angelina Jolie after the jump!
In the seven years that "Arrested Development" has been off the air, a lot must have happened to the hilarious and perpetually destructive Bluth family. Or not. The show is called "Arrested Development" after all.
But since seven years is a long time regardless of how arrested the development of the Bluth is, MTV News sat down with the cast of the cult TV show to see what everyone has been up to since the last time that we visited with the family.
"Arrested Development" returns on Netflix this coming Sunday, May 26.
Picking a project for Holllywood actors can come down to a single aspect, whether it's an acclaimed director or the location of the shoot. For Jeremy Renner and "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," all he needed was simple piece of concept art.
As Renner explains in this exclusive from the Blu-ray and DVD release of "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," the one-sheet image of his character and his on-screen sister convinced him that the movie was worth doing before he even saw a script.
"The initial attraction to do the movie came from a little one sheet that I got before I even got the script, and it was something that they ended up shooting in the movie. It was Hansel and Gretel walking away," Renner says. "There's a fire going and a witch burning in the background. He has a shotgun, and she has this crossbow. That's interesting to me. I don't know why, but it was."
The unrated version of "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 11. It is available for digital download now.
Last week, we traveled to Las Vegas to sit down with the Wolfpack to talk "The Hangover" for one last time before the trilogy ends next week. We'll have more about that movie closer to the release date, but we took some time out of our interview to ask a few questions about Bradley Cooper's and Ed Helms' upcoming projects.
A few weeks ago, Steven Spielberg signed on to direct Cooper in an adaptation of "American Sniper," the tragic true story of Chris Kyle, whose memoir the actor's production company optioned. Cooper shared his reaction to attracting such a legendary director.
The "Fast & Furious 6" crew sat down with MTV News last night for an MTV First, complete with a 30-minute interview and an exclusive clip. If you weren't able to catch the goodness of MTV and MTV.com, it's your lucky day. The entire show and clip are available on demand right now.
In the never-before-seen clip from the six movie of the "Fast & Furious" franchise, we see Ludacris, reprising his role from earlier in the series, acting ask a scout for the team's latest operation.
Things are going smoothly until a cable is strung across oncoming traffic, laying waste to two approaching vehicles, but revealing the nasty surprise hidden inside. It's a tank.
"Fast & Furious 6" opens in theaters on May 24.
Six films into any film series, the premise of the movies is going to seem a little stale. Even with a franchise as fun as "Fast & Furious," you can't help but start to think, "Cars? What else you got?"
The answer: How about a tank?
As a part of "MTV First: Fast & Furious 6," we are debuting an exclusive look at the upcoming film, and we're throwing in a 30-minute interview with Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, and Michelle Rodriguez for good measure.
All of the action starts at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV and continues right here for the interview portion immediately after the clip!
"Warm Bodies" might be zombie movie, but it's also a romance. And you can't have a zombie romance without having some self-aware humor in the thing. That would be too ridiculous, otherwise.
That being the case, it should come as no surprise to find a guy like Rob Corddry showing in "Warm Bodies" as one of the zombies that give the movie a fun sense of humor.
In this exclusive extra from the Blu-ray, we see Corddry and leading man Nicholas Hoult interacting as the walking dead, and thanks to some improvising, they're also the laughing dead.
"Warm Bodies" is available for digital download today and will hit Blu-ray and DVD on June 4.
