Godzilla: Long Live the King of the Monsters

UPDATE: TRAILER FOR 2014 MOVIE

SECOND 2014 TRAILER

--------------------------------------------

I couldn't find a thread. So might as well make one myself. Of all the films in 2014, this is high on my anticipation list of films for the next year. I've been tracking this film since 2009 since Toho entered negotiations with Legendary Pictures. In other words, I'm happy with what I'm hearing so far. Actually saying that is a bit of understatement.

Sorry for the double post but I wanted to give my own thread more support. Well, might as well get things going. Here's what interests me so far.

"Its very much a character-driven movie, which I think is a fair thing to say. Its got an epic spectacle to it, yet and I have to be careful which words I use - but its got somber moments as well. Its quite haunting and quite moving. We tried to make a blockbuster that harks back to the pace and style of the early '80s and late '70s action movies.

It felt small, [Elizabeth] Olsen said. It felt creative. I never waited around for two hours for a setup. We were just on set the whole time going at it. It was like an independent production, really.

[Aaron]Taylor-Johnson also described the intimate atmosphere on set.

It happened to be a big-budget art film, really, the way [Edwards] wanted to shoot it and the way he wanted to direct it, he said.

What interests me is that Edwards sounds like he wants to make this the "Dredd" of Kaiju movies but he also made it a personal project. Which is great considering the best Godzilla movies are the ones made with passion like the original 1954 film and GMK.

I have to admit my attitude about this up until this past weekend was very "blah, another crappy American Godzilla, wake me when Toho makes a new one."

But I like the design! Even though hints and early art indicated it would be an upright proper looking Godzilla, I guess I didn't really believe it until now. It's got it's own look to it, but it's got a very faithful design, and suddenly I'm having a bit more hope for this thing.

If it's revealed he's going to fight another monster, I'll be in full on hype mode. Of course, I'd be even more impressed if that ended up coming as a surprise, "Godzilla 2000" style.

I can't really tell from the little snippets there, but is that an actual Godzilla suit? It kind of looks like it could be.

Now the question becomes is this Godzilla the new "American Godzilla" or does that honor still belong to Zilla?

Its good to see big G again, I missed him!

Im very pleased with the direction I have seen with this Godzilla movie. When Toho announced they were retiring the franchise after Final Wars, I thought it was going to be way longer than 10 years. Glad that Legendary is trying to keep this true to the original.

It seems they are sticking with the practical effects for Godzilla, which is also something I am very pleased at. Some CGI is still expected no doubt, but nothing can take the place of the suit acting.

Not a gigantic fan of the new Big G look. But then again I only liked 2 Godzilla looks, The Heisei era, & Final Wars. But hopefully it'll grow on me.

I wonder if anybody here remembers the Fox Kids show.

There's a trailer description, Godzilla is practically the tallest mofo of a monster ever.

Final Wars is the last Godzilla movie that was released in 2004. This was the franchises 50th anniversary. Godzilla is awoken to battle past monsters that are brought back from an invading alien force. Had some nods to the past as well. It had mixed reactions from fans. I personally liked it for what it was.

Final Wars is the most recent Japanese Godzilla film. Depending on who you talk to, opinions are pretty split. I think it's an okay action movie, but it suffers from trying to shove as many monsters as it can into its run time. It feels very rushed.

EDIT - totally got beat to the punch.
