    *Napoleon Dynamite Voice* not every virally marketed kaiju movie is Cloverfield, GAWD! *ends voice*
    seriously can't wait to see this though! Gorilla Del Taco* is one of my favorite directors! :D
    (I'm not even going to attempt to spell it right...)

    I mean it looks exactly like cloverfields first teasers with the camera cutting off at moments where the monster is attacking

    Looks cool, can't wait to see it. Gillermo del Toro is one of my favorite directors too. I read the little bit of story posted online, sounds like an interesting film.

    This trailer employs all the early trailer tricks in the book.

    1) Trick: Don't show the main thing.
    Reaction: What is the main thing?! Show me! Show me now!

    2) Trick: Give small glimpse at story.
    Reaction: What is the story?! I'm tearing my hair out!

    3) Trick: Big in the beginning, small in the middle, MASSIVE in the end.
    Reaction: Oh no, giant monsters! Well, it seems to have cal- HOLY S***!

    Hells yes! I'm REALLY hoping that this movie helps Kaiju become the next big (ha) thing. Like Zombies. So many zombies. Need more city destroying monsters! Of course, my motivation is also selfish. If Kaiju go mainstream, I'm going to do well. :)

    While I agree, it would damage Kaiju as a whole. Zombies once were feared unholy beings, but due to mainstream popularity, zombies have been dumbed down to slow, weak, mindless and all around un-scary creatures. I shiver at the thought of a dumbing down of kaiju.

    Indeed! Although I hope... wait... zombies have been staying very true to their "colors"! Ya! Lets go for the zombies' success! :)

    edit: @ Shnurb: when were they not mindless and dumb? Although I agree, not "too" mainstream...

    (Oh, and speaking of zombies, what do you think of Bogrimm? I think her and Nemesis could be "Gal Pals" personally! :p )

    The Kaiju Warning System video reminds me of something I made for my last hard cover, SecondWorld (not a Kaiju book...but it does have big robots).

    I think Nemesis would sooner rip Bogrimm apart to relieve itself of some stress to be honest. She doesn't seem like the "friend" type

    Boggrim, a giant crocodile possessed by despair, and Nemesis, a murdered girl mixed with a giant monster that seeks divine justice. Gal Pals forever.

    Well, at some point they were actually frightening. They would maim you, and devour your flesh. Now they are wimps that only idiots get bitten by.
