From BD:The Mighty 'Godzilla' Will Roar Once More!
Oh, Boy...Is Legendary Pictures Gearing Up For A GODZILLA Reboot??
Rumor: New Godzilla Movie in Discussion Stage at Legendary Pictures?
Rumor: Legendary Pictures Developing New Godzilla Movie?!
Godzilla to return to the US to wreck havoc again? yes please.
Hell yeah! It's about f-ing time!
Yeah, its the same as what they're doing with Superman and Spiderman. It's not make everything realistic, its make the world feel real so when all these fantastical things happen. They're even more extraordinary
yeah, all it means is they want to make the events of the film feel believable within the context of the story.
my response to that is when hasnt that always been the case...doesnt the Donner Superman movies take place in a realistic world???
Didnt the Raimi Spider-man movies take place in a realistic world???
Didn't the first Godzilla movie and even the Gino movie take place in a realistic world?
Realism is just a catchword people throw around these days
Both Superman and Spiderman take in inherently comicbooky settings, they just don't lay it on as thick as Batman89. Not a complaint on either front.
You're right though that the original Godzilla reflects at the very least real emotions and sensibilities of Japan at the time in which it was produced. It is that element that has been missing from the films for a long time.
To what degree is Toho involved in this film?
Pretty much. As I said before, the first Godzilla movie was grounded in reality so honestly, those words pretty much don't mean a thing.
its like people believe realistic equals better.
Honestly how do you do a realistic and grounded movie about a giant radioactive/dinosaur/lizard/force of nature?
Even if he meant a realistic world what would be the realistic response to a giant monster smashing the city...calling the military to take care of it...maybe a scientist to figure out how to kill it....which is pretty much happened in most Godzilla movies.
Think of it this way, this film is being produced by the same companies that have another giant kaiju film coming out next year with Pacific Rim.
You can be sure that the way the monsters are presented and the ways the world reacts to the threat, and possibly the tone of the films will be quite different.
Calling in the military or scientists is a far cry away from building giant robots and duking it out in hand to hand combat.
Casting starts in 3 weeks!
That's what I think it means. The characters won't be cartoonish.
Well, most interpretations of the character have had goofy humans. Even the classic flick was cheesy like that. I get what Emmerich was trying to do by making all his humans cariactures but it didn't come out right.
Shouldn't they aspire to have better writing than science fiction films from the 50 and 60's? Thematically those films were often great but is it that much to ask for improvements in characters and dialoague?
i love that there is a new Godzilla movie is being made, and on topic with Godzilla movies, Toho Kingdom has announced that, FINALLY, Godzilla vs Biollante will be released officially within the United States on standard DVD and blu-ray.
this was one of my favorites as a kid, and I am so happy that this movie is getting a proper official release, and a new movie being released 2 years later... it's good to be a Godzilla fan these days
I worry that there will be a Godzilla/Pacific Rim war between fans same way that there was The Avengers/TDKR war
So as a Godzilla fan I have a hard time getting excited for PR
...yes because you can't like two movies at the same time....you just can't. I go crazy every night because I actually liked The Avengers and TDKR both!
Why a war? It's not like either are even coming out the same year.
The movies come out almost a year apart and are made by the same company...
And besides, TDKR and Avengers wasnt a "War".
"War" suggests both sides stand an equal chance of winning.
Not to mention one's a mech movie and the other's a straight up monster movie. The only similarities are that Japan's screwed because of monsters.
Casting should be getting ready to start soon!
Drew Pearce had until the end of October to do a final script polish before casting began
