As they say in the movie business, it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship, and it has led to an exciting relationship with Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures. Snapdragon mobile processors power the biggest stars of the futuristic Pacific Rim, the colossally sized Jaeger robots that battle invading alien monsters.

You can help the crusade and be immersed into the Pacific Rim world by joining the Snapdragon Jaeger program on the Snapdragon Facebook page. Take the Jaeger Pilot Aptitude test to see if you have the speed, endurance and visual acuity required to pilot Snapdragon powered bad-ass Jaeger robots.

Even if your pilot skills are less than Snapdragon stellar, you'll still have the chance to win a real world device powered by the Snapdragon 600 mobile processor—the Samsung GALAXY S4—and be entered to win a trip to Los Angeles for the premiere of the film.
