One of the many upcoming blockbusters coming up that I'm really looking forward to is the new Godzilla flick. The trailer has just been released...
As a fan of the old style Japanese monster movies I do have a couple recommendations of more recent movies that you may have missed that are great homages.
"Cloverfield" from 2007 really captured my imagination, as it's filmed from the POV of a guy with a video camera trying to escape NYC during a monster attack.
... and "Pacific Rim" from last year. Guillermo Del Toro's visually stunning robots vs. monsters sci-fi opus.
