Director Guillermo del Toro’s giant robots vs mutant monsters flick, “Pacific Rim,” was a breakout hit in 2013 when its killer kaiju belched forth from a trans-dimensional oceanic rift to do battle with mighty mechs called Jaegers.

A sequel titled “Pacific Rim Uprising” carried the epic smackdown ten years into the future with “Star Wars'” John Boyega playing the son of Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost from the original film. The giant mechs also launched themselves into the sky with rockets, which was fun.
