Topic: Godzilla

Nice teaser trailer. smile Hopefully it'll be more mature than Pacific Rim (which wasn't exactly a bad thing in PR's case, but I want a darker monster film smile).

Re: Godzilla

I want the new movie (franchise) to stay true to the japanese. Of course each restart offers something new but as long as it doesnt go in the zilla direction it should be fine. I do really like the many japanese takes on it and from what I understand the japanese company have tried to take precautions when selling the rights this time to make sure it is not messed up and that they are involved in the development.

The teaser is exciting even if we dont learn much.

I thought Pacific Rim was a great monster film. It was easy to see it had many influences from the Godzilla franchise.

So before 1998 no one outside of Japan has ever heard of Godzilla?

Re: Godzilla

Well, if you choose a nickname like Godzilla then you must be naive to believe that no one else will also choose it. By the way, are sure it was because of the Godzilla movie and not the Internet becoming more popular? wink

Re: Godzilla

The old japanese Godzilla movies were famous, i watched them as a kid.
And i think many people knew what Godzilla was even before 1998.

Great.  The Americans are going to save us all.  Again.

*sigh*

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

Not Americans, Walter White. wink

Don't get me wrong, Bryan Cranston is great, but I think it's going to take more than an old Chemistry teacher to save yet another Hollywood special effects fest.

I imagine I will still see it though.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

Re: Godzilla

When I saw the trailer I was instantly bored to death. Why another incarnation?

I also found it similar to PR. I watched it barely, because between all these flawless CGI the plot was ridiculous stupid. Should've stayed a comic for small kids.

Re: Godzilla

I've already made the decision to turn off my brain for the duration of this movie and enjoy the fuck out of it. Looks rad. smile

Re: Godzilla

Kudos to the guys who made the trailers for hiding how much this movie was dumbed down for the target audience

+ show spoiler

and for the guys who made the poster about lying how tall Godzilla is wink

I truly hate it when monster films are focused on human characters instead of just letting the monsters or monster and the military to go at it. Pacific Rim, despite its childishness, was a much better monster flick. Still, there were some nice scenes, Godzilla had cool roars and unlike the previous US movie he wasn't "the bad guy". I hope that they hire some better writers for Godzilla 2, because the director surely has talent and some of the parts of the movie reminded me of good moments from Monsters (and also Cloverfield).

One would have imagined they would figure out at some point that assault rifles are useless here.

Oh and the nuke bit - still weaker then the czar bomb.

Re: Godzilla

For me the lamest thing was that the main hero's wife HAD TO BE a nurse. That's one of the biggest cliches from movies about monsters, alien invasion or various catastrophies. ;p Why couldn't they just introduce "simple" random characters like JJ did in Cloverfield?

Re: Godzilla

Sadly you're right. Teaser trailer hinted that the new Godzilla movie will be a more ambitious and darker project, like Monsters only with a bigger budget. First full trailer was also a good cover up... sure, it did introduce some of the characters, but it didn't say that the story would revolve around them. It also didn't say how unoriginal they would be. Sadly the movie itself didn't resemble the coolness that the trailers have promised. But like I've said... it's not a shitfest like the previous Godzilla movie and I wouldn't mind getting a sequel but with a better script.

Re: Godzilla

TOHO is producing a new work of its iconic film monster Godzilla for release throughout Japan in 2016. It will be the first Godzilla film by TOHO since 2004's Godzilla Final Wars (pictured right). According to the Cinema Today website, the "legendary" Japanese franchise is undergoing a revival, in response to the heightened fan support after Gareth Edwards and Legendary Pictures' Hollywood Godzilla film became a worldwide hit.

Edwards' film has opened in 63 countries and territories, and has earned over 57 billion yen (about US$470 million) worldwide, including 3.2 billion yen (US$26 million) in Japan alone.

Production of the new film will run from summer to fall of next year, and TOHO is assembling the staff. It will have no direct ties with Edwards' film, but will instead be an entirely new Godzilla film. Edwards and Legendary Pictures are separately planning a sequel to their own film.

Nice, new Godzilla flick from Japan. smile I'm curious about the budget and if they'll use a rubber Godzilla again.
