Win PACIFIC RIM on Blu-ray and Enjoy This Exclusive Clip

The above clip is an exclusive artist’s storyboard rendering of the majestic and mighty Shatterdome sequence from Pacific Rim, in which a trio of humanity’s most powerful Jaegers are flown via helicopter into Hong Kong Bay to fight what they think will be just another Kaiju. Oh, my heavens, are they wrong.

This clip is just one of the many things you’ll find on the extensive special features list for the Pacific Rim Blu-ray, which hits stores both real and virtual today. Guillermo del Toro’s epic world-building extravaganza pits a small but dedicated band of pilots and scientists against a seemingly endless cadre of titanic beasties coming from a crack in the Earth’s crust. Why are they here? Where do they come from? It’s taken a while to figure out. Luckily for humanity, Jaegers exist. Who wouldn’t think to create huge robots to battle otherworldly behemoths? And you get plenty of city-smashing and monster-blasting as only the master of cinema fantasy can give us.

It’s got hours of behind-the-scenes and making-of content on every aspect of the film from its inception, designing, scripting, shooting, editing, scoring, and whatever else you can think of, all supervised by Guillermo del Toro himself. You’ll even get access to his own personal notebook, in interactive digital format, to give you a glimpse into the mad genius’ brain.

    First, I would probably panic and my first thought would be of running away. Granted, I live smacked down in the middle of FL so not much would probably happen. However, after a brief reality check I would jump into my own little Jaeger, Luna (my car), and I would go where the action is. Secondly, by any means possible I would try to help the PPDC. Once I make it in I can get close to the action and take photographs with my amateur Kodak Az521 camera so that I can transfer them to ink and paper (I am an artist after all!). In the end, I can tell future generations of how I helped save humanity and became a famous artist in the process.

  2. NeuroMan42 says:

    I would have moved to a small island in the middle of Pacific called Waponi Woo, and started mining all the Bubaru and used it to build a rocket to leave Earth.

  3. Cody says:

    I would have stayed right here in Wisconsin. I think we would have stayed safe.

  4. Wes Wakely says:

    I’d probably get caught up in the Jaeger/Kaiju hype and buy all the merchandise after all the panic died down. Assuming I wasn’t killed in the first few attacks, that is.

  5. Kenneth Pereira says:

    Bring back Walter White by way of The Walking Dead virus and then make him make a Jaegar called MecaHiesenberg to fight out the Kaiju, it would be epic!

  6. Dan Gilkey says:

    More than likely there would be some panic followed by trying to get my family moved off of the coast. Now moved inland where land value will have just skyrocketed I would try to find work quite possibly ether directly working on planetary defense or is some support field given that the largest industry would now be Jager development.

  7. NotMF says:

    I was a math major in college and I love astrophysics, so the idea of alien life forms coming through what is essentially a wormhole would excite me to no end. I’d probably be like Charlie Day’s character and try to work in the science part of the defense program. I’d be way more interested in trying to understand how and why it’s all happening. Once the Kaiju are defeated, I’d use my work experience to get a job at NASA, cuz why the hell not.

  8. Vicki Lantz says:

    I would have totally volunteered for the PPDC. I might not have had a super important job, but I would still want to do something to help the effort.

  9. Cliff Franklin says:

    I wouldn’t have to do jack. I work in finance for a steel company in Michigan, whether they’re using steel to build Jaegers or walls, I’ll just sit back and cash my bonus checks!

  10. Bri says:

    I would have probably been getting out of class when the news broke. I would have headed to satellite(university food court) to check out what the news was saying and then planned from there. Probably while taking a call from mom freaked out mom.

  11. Chris says:

    That’s pretty easy – pussied out. I would have packed up a bag full of my belongings and by hook or by crook, gotten my ass to the middle of the country.

  12. Bernie W says:

    I would start my own company that builds giant robots.

  13. Marc says:

    Living in manhattan, I figure I have three options:

    – hide in an old fallout shelter (which are marked all over around the city)

    – Make the long trek via the Lincoln or Holland Tunnel to Jersey (aka the mainland)

    – Similarly make my way to the Bronx to also join the mainland.

    You don’t want to be stuck on a island that is being destroyed Cloverfield style

  14. Eric Anderson says:

    I’d take shelter, michael shannon style.

  15. Eric Anderson says:

    Id take shelter, michael shannon style.

  16. Fawkes says:

    I’d start selling Jaeger & Kaiju figurines.

  17. LinneaMB says:

    I would love to say that I would go work to fight them but I have absolutely no skills in that field and would just be running around asking if I could play with the giant robots. Since this is more of a hinderance than a help I think I would just head for the northern woods in Maine where I live. I would build my fortress on top of a mountain and protect it with giant trebuchets that can hurl flaming barrels of oil at approaching monsters.I am already proficient in farming and rural living and I think I would survive just fine till someone much smarter than me was able to defeat them.

  18. himynameisross says:

    I would have ran! IVE SEEN THE MOVIES CLOVERFIELD, GODZILLA! NO WAY

  19. Andrew Ho says:

    I would have started looting. I mean helping injured people and stuff but also doing looting on the side.

  20. T. Reyes says:

    If I heard that we were under threat of a Kaiju attack, I would move my family to live either on the Golden Gate Bridge or in the Statue of Liberty, because y’know those things never get destroyed in apocalyptic movies.

  21. Miguel says:

    I would move to Australia. Beautiful country and doesn’t seem to ever be involved in anything on such a scale.

  22. Sean C. says:

    I would get out of Dodge…or more accurately, go somewhere close to Dodge City.

  23. CharityS says:

    I would have left the country.

  24. Emily says:

    I would have joined the Jaeger program after finding a way to secure family. The best place for me would have been part of the PR department. In the end it was politics that was dismantling the best strategy and focusing on ineffective plans. A good PR campaign would have helped keep public pressure on politicians to maintain support for the fighting heroes.

  25. Chris D. says:

    I would likely have signed up early on to be part of the Kaiju analysis team. Looking at footage of them in action and remains to find patterns and hopefully weaknesses.

  26. Roy Campos says:

    Well I instinctively would want to move my family into the mountains, but considered we are woodland folk’ (we live in a National Forest) My family probably wouldn’t survive right away in the mountains. So perhaps I would just keep us there praying that we are secluded enough from the cities…

  27. Bluenoser says:

    I would head immediately to a safe zone in Freeport, Nova Scotia. Thankfully, it’s only a couple of hours from my house. Oh, wait, that’s my World War Z timeline. If it’s Kaiju, then we hit the road for Saskatoon!

  28. Katie Cullen says:

    One: Panicked, because LA isn’t too far from San Francisco, as the giant extradimensional monster walks.

    Two: Once it became obvious that Kaiji were an epidemic and not a one-off disaster, moved back to Colorado (after one last farewell trip to Disneyland, of course).

    Three: Fundraised like mad for the PPDC.

  29. Matthew Lang says:

    I would have helped designed Jaegers!

  30. susan z says:

    i would love to win the blue ray it would be so cool that me and my friend can watch or family.
    The previews look so good.

  31. Will Silver says:

    My Jager would have some kind of “shiny metal butt” attack…

    Yeah, its called “Bender Rodriguez”

  32. Jake says:

    Once the Kaiju arrived and the Jaegers were out in force, I’d most likely be at home fanboying. I can see it now, simultaneously building models of my favorite Jaegers and wiping my frightened tears off the instruction booklets….

  33. Celvyn says:

    Called Batman. Duh.

  34. Kid Vicious says:

    I would escape to my secret space station that’s orbiting the Earth. Disguised as satelites and space garbage.

  35. Kid Vicious says:

    I would escape to my secret space station that’s orbiting the Earth. Disguised as satelites and space garbage.

  36. Frankie says:

    after my nerd boner calms itself, I would find out how i can get involved with the PPDC and enter the kaiju research field

  37. Dave says:

    I, for one, will welcome our new Kaiju overlords. :)

  38. Tim S says:

    Once the Kaiju were spotted, I’d probably crap myself….THEN, I’d learn martial arts, get ripped, get my mind-meld on, fight some 200ft freakies and hopefully die a heroes death.

  39. Jon Matthies says:

    Head for the hills!

  40. Elizabeth Wood says:

    i would move my family inland, then find the nearest PPDC recruiting office. even if i can’t pilot myself, i can at least make sure the equipment works

  41. Erika says:

    I’d start making room for all my CA friends and family.

  42. Paul Daniels says:

    When the Kaiju first show up, I would sob uncontrollably for a year. After a year of having no personal injury caused to me by the kaijou, I would sign up to help work on the Jaegers, most likely as some sort of entry level custodian. Then, I would probably be killed in some sort of factory accident, forcing friends and family to share the story of my untimely death while heroically working to defend mankind, and then awkwardly explain I died by tripping over a wrench while mopping, not in any sort of act of bravery.

  43. Jeremy says:

    I’d like to say that once the Kaiju showed up, I was a brave warrior type, signing up immediately to do battle for the end of the world, but instead I curled up into a ball and cried, embracing my fate as just one piece of kibble in Kaiju Chow.

  44. Hector says:

    Get a team of biologists and specialist in infectious diseases and analyze them, then design a virus to kill them.

  45. Mike says:

    Applied to join the corps. Skilled welder and engineer. I may not be pilot material, but I’ll help however I can.

  46. Curtis says:

    move inland to the middle of canada.

  47. Tim says:

    Probably would’ve sent Tony Stark to drop a nuke in the portal. Which we now know wouldn’t have passed through, but hey, go with your gut.

  48. Matt Moseman says:

    Let’s be fair. When the kaiju first showed up I’d be the guy digging a shoddy shelter in his basement, making my kids dig the hole with me.

    Or I’d get drunk and kill them all in their sleep to save them the suffering.

    Or I’d just get drunk and pass out because I live in the Midwest, content with the thought of “Meh, they’ll never make it all the way out here.”

  49. JD B says:

    I would have moved to the middle of Canada

  50. Andrew Kline says:

    Once I got news of the Kaiju, I would have packed up and moved to Kansas or Nebraska; far away from the oceans.
