The Giant Japanese Film Festival begins tomorrow evening with Godzilla vs. Mecha-Godzilla and Terror of Mecha-Godzilla (along with an episode of Spectreman). You can catch the double feature at the Egyptian and then try to see all the rest of the 20 films that will run during the one week of classic (and new) movies featuring sub-titles and actors in rubber costumes. Amongst the 20 flicks are the latest Ultraman and Godzilla movies and, if you want to whet your whistle for Peter Jackson's coming King Kong remake, you can get tickets for King Kong Escapes on Sunday. American Cinematheque members even get to mix and mingle before the movies on Sunday.

update: speaking of Kong, the first King Kong trailer will air on NBC this coming Monday.
