via Pacific Rim Site Hello fellas, I am not sure if you already knew, but the fantastic director Guillermo del Toro is creating a tokusatsu film titled Pacific Rim, which is coming out soon. The story synopsis from their site:
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse."
The film was made according to Guillermo, as a tribute to the classic Toku films from Japan like Japan's mascots Godzilla and Ultraman. This is supported by the fact that the monsters are called "Kaiju".
