As Guillermo del Toro tries to battle the bad buzz surrounding his sci-fi epic Pacific Rim, a new clip hopes to show just how insane those mech-vs.-monster battle scenes will be.

Some of the recent trailers have teased a scene where a Jaeger drags a massive ship to shore to use as a baseball bat against an attacking Kaiju. Now the studio has rolled out a chunk of that clip showing how the battle got started.

It looks positively insane, and is really the best look we’ve had to date of a Kaiju creature in action. It looks like a mix of Godzilla and the Cloverfield monster, in a good way, and should make for a formidable opponent for Earth’s survivors.

Check out the clip below and let us know what you think:

Pacific Rim opens July 12. Do you plan on checking it out?
