'Pacific Rim' Gets the Toho Treatment

Despite reports that Pacific Rim is cleaning up at the international box office, Guillermo’s quirky and ambitious movie about giant robots battling equally giant monsters didn’t exactly catch on domestically. Why? I wish I knew.

Whether or not Pacific Rim ultimately spawns a franchise, it has no doubt reignited interest in old-school Kaiju films, which is a good sign for Warner Bros. forthcoming Godzilla reboot stomping into theaters next summer. While we await city-stomping goodness, check out this fan-made trailer reimagining Pacific Rim as a Godzilla-esque Toho flick, complete with Japanese dubbing and some familiar music.
