I really hope Pacific Rim does really well. If only because seeing more giant monster and/or robot movies being made would be awesome. Often times these genres aren't given room to grow and evolve since studios are too busy attempting to make as much money as possible off of them. Pacific Rim seems to be doing what it wants to do and going it's own direction. However everything I've seen on this movie takes itself very seriously and I hope the movie itself doesn't stay mono-tone like this. You can't have alien monsters fighting giant robots and take yourself serious all the time.
