Pacific Rim the movie - a homage to Japanese kaiju monster films

Video: Pacific Rim trailer (Japanese)

"Pacific Rim...a conventional action blockbuster with a price tag of $200 million. On closer examination, it is a lovingly crafted homage to the Japanese monster films of the 1960s....The film is set in the 2020s, a dystopian near-future where enormous ''kaiju'' - note the explicit use of the Japanese term for monsters - have risen from a crack on the ocean floor and ravaged the coastal cities of the world."
