SAN DIEGO - Guillermo Del Toro is going really big with his next film.

The creator of "Pan's Labyrinth" and the "Hellboy" movies came to Comic-Con on Saturday to give fans a taste of his sci-fi showdown "Pacific Rim."

Due in theaters July 12, 2013, "Pacific Rim" is a clash of the titans as humans pilot colossal robots to battle gargantuan sea monsters.

Charlie Hunnam plays a washed-up ex-pilot and Rinko Kikuchi is a raw trainee who are teamed up in an antiquated robot to make a last stand against the ocean beasts. The cast also includes Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Del Toro's "Hellboy" star, Ron Perlman.

Del Toro screened a few minutes that featured epic smackdowns between the 25-story machines and creatures.
