"We've also been getting strange reports of something moving under the Golden Gate Bridge." San Franciscans, we hope you never have to hear that sentence in real life.

The first footage from Guillermo del Toro's upcoming giant aliens vs. giant robots extravaganza "Pacific Rim" has been revealed in a viral video featuring fractured images of a news report on a "Kaiju attack." A "Kaiju" appears to be the official term for "300-foot monster."

The video brings back memories of "Cloverfield" as a mostly unseen creature stomps on a major American city, causing massive destruction and inspiring widespread panic as news reporters try to remain as stoic as possible whilst commentating on a world gone mad. Time to call in the giant robot armor suit thingees to lay the smackdown on this beastie!

It's fun to see del Toro having a blast with a ton of studio money. Watch what is most definitely the first of many viral videos to come below, and prepare for "Pacific Rim," in theaters on July 12, 2013.
