Pacific Rim Trailer

I just watched this trailer. Giant monsters, giant robots, 3D and Guillermo del Toro directing. With the limited amount of films and TV shows that fill this genre and are done well, excluding the Power Rangers and Clover Field. This trailer from the onset looks like a visual spectacle that I'm looking forward to watch in IMAX, glasses on.
I wonder if there is any connection to all the future SCI-FI cinema being release and the year 2013? Any thoughts.
