August Ragone posted a bit about "Day of the Kaiju" on his blog a week or so ago:
http://augustragone.blogspot.com/2014/0 ... kaiju.html

August Ragone's Blog wrote:DAY OF THE KAIJU (Kaiju-no Hi) is a new, independent film produced in the town of Hinode, located in Nishitama District, Tokyo Metropolis. From town's official website: "In previous monster movies, Godzilla was created as an anti-nuclear metaphor to bring attention of social issues. In this production, the monster is a symbol of the radioactive waste from nuclear power plants."

The story begins following a giant monster landing at Ogasawara Island, which disappears into the sea from moral wounds inflicted by the Self-Defense Forces. Currents eventually wash the carcass onto the beach of a small town, and the film depicts the events in the aftermath of such an event...

DAY OF THE KAIJU was written and directed by Kazuhiro Nakagawa.

I'm not immediately familiar with the director's work and the tone of the trailer seems pretty solemn. I do like that they are going with a metaphor here, i just hope there's a story to back up the mood of the piece
