I notice that in Hollywood, whenever something starts to become popular and becomes a trend, different companies tend to latch onto that trend and take advantage of it (using dubstep in commercials, the Inception horn in movie trailers, etc.).
So, if Pacific Rim
does become popular, then you can guarantee that other movie companies making robot films will want their own robot designs to imitate the ones in that film, or they will want to make their own giant mechanized robot movies. Because it's "in". And people like what's "in".
