Guillermo del Toro’s giant monster versus robots film “Pacific Rim” comes to theatres Friday.

After a number of similar trailers, the only thing audiences really know about the film is that we can look forward to an all-out alien brawl.

We saw an early screening of the film, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Essentially, it’s “Power Rangers” for grown ups.

Before checking out Warner Bros.’ latest, here’s a little more background on the monster film, along with some of the actors you can expect to see in the blockbuster.

In order for the robots to work, they must be piloted by a team of two who share a neural connection.

They ride in this bot — the Gipsy Danger.

You'll see four types of Jaeger robots in the film.
