With all of those other cool Super Bowl commercials airing yesterday, you were probably thinking to yourself 'I'm sure they'll show something for Pacific Rim. Why else am I watching this silly game of sports ball?' By now you know that you were WRONG, but in lieu of awesome moving pictures, we have some awesome not moving pictures thanks to The Playlist. Catch 'em all down in the gallery.

Here's another interesting tidbit in regards to Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim: Rian Johnson tweeted his seal of approval after seeing a test screening.

Go into Pacific Rim prepared to be transmogrified into a 12 year old. And then to pee your pants with joy. I love it so much.

So I guess he liked it? From what I've heard, Johnson knows a thing or two about sci-fi, so I'm sure he's opinion is a valid one. Not that I need to be told to pee my pants when I see the film. I'm heading into the theater with a bladder full of joy on July 12th.
