Great point. One of the trailers should have shown whatshername as a little girl in the street looking up as a giant-ass jaeger steps over her to beat the shit out of the kaiju.

Monster movies used to be popular 50 years ago, sure, but they were still a niche market.
Are you seriously comparing it to King Kong, or the conditions to how movies were made and marketed in back then? I can't take you seriously, I'm afraid. This isn't 1933 and movies are promoted quite differently today, to a different audience, under different viewing conditions. No one told people they needed to "turn off their brains" to enjoy a movie, for starters.
I'm not sure which trailer you saw so can't comment on it. I do think the marketing wasn't great.
However my comment was the idea of giant robots vs giant monsters is not hard to get. Despite what "kaiju" means. I wasn't commenting on your artsy fartsy view on king kong the original movie.
