If that first trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim didn't show off enough mechs-vs.-monsters action for you, we have good news—the latest teaser to leak out shows off a lot more of the large-scale insanity.

The new trailer debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and is a much more fast-paced look at what promises to be one of the most unique sci-fi films of 2013. We get to see a lot more of the massive mechs, along with some more interior shots of what makes those huge 'bots tick.

Here's the synopsis:

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 (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)--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.
