Kaiju Scary Beasts Hit the Big Screen - Big Man Japan

Out in theaters this May will be "Big Man Japan." Described as the Japanese "Hancock," it is about a pathetic middle-aged coward with the unfortunate ability of transforming into a giant man. In Godzilla-like form, he fights off Kaiju, or beasts, that resemble the uber popular scary Japanese toys based on manga characters. However, the citizens think he's a joke and even call him "fat." In a mocumentary style, this film parodies some of our favorite Saturday Japanese monster flicks. I look forward to it.
