Godzilla stomping back to theaters

Godzilla stomping back to theaters via Legendary

By Ace Fernandez
Well, well, well ... look who's getting back in fighting shape.

Everyone's favorite gigantic, havoc-wreaking lizard, Godzilla, is on his way back to the big screen via Legendary Pictures, which has acquired the rights to develop and produce a new feature based on the iconic Toho Co. character. Warner Bros. will co-produce, co-finance and distribute through its deal with Legendary, and Toho will roll out the film in Japan.

Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Brian Rogers are also producing; Yoshimitsu Banno, Kenji Okuhira and Doug Davison will be executive producers on the project.

The last major Godzilla outing, an American, New York-set version from Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, grossed $376 million worldwide in 1998 despite fielding equally major criticism. Toho quickly produced "Godzilla 2000," in which the big beast took on an evil UFO, the following year.

But the Godzilla franchise juggernaut has survived decades of permutations (he first appeared in 1954), dozens of films, books, video games and merchandising tie-ins and seems perpetually ready to rear up again for new audiences.

The new film is shooting for a 2012 release.

"Godzilla is one of the world's most powerful pop culture icons, and we at Legendary are thrilled to be able to create a modern epic based on this long-loved Toho franchise," said Thomas Tull, chairman and CEO of Legendary. "Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop culturally relevant for as long as it has."

Added Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, "Godzilla is emblematic of the kind of branded, event films for which Warner Bros. and our partners at Legendary are best known."

The two companies have partnered on such global properties as "Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight," "Superman Returns" and "The Hangover," which have grossed more than $2 billion worldwide. Together, they have a remake of "Clash of the Titans" stomping into theaters Friday.

FTR, I am not a Broderick fan.

However, Broderick, when you look at it kind of looks like Brokedick.

Pacific Rim (which I loved) = Legendary's testing ground (effects wise) for Godzilla.

I predict I will revert back to my 9 year old self when I go see this movie.

Wow. Over/under on number of monsters in this film? Just Godzilla? The video shows a weird foot like thing stamping down on the ground that doesn't match a part of Godzilla.
edit: After rewatching it there are some strange things at 1:33 which looks like something with folded wings diving or falling into the ocean. 1:48 there is something knocking fighters from the sky, and the setting looks similar to the scene from 1:33. 2:07 is the weird foot thing, that looks like the edge of a bent wing, sort of how a bat walks on the ground.

I would enjoy if Ghidorah makes an appearance, though with an altered appearance deviating from the tree trunk form in the past. If there is another monster with wings, my money is on Rodan. The Destroyer had wings, but it basically an unknown, so highly doubtful.


Ok, did a bit of digging. Minimum of 2 monsters is the rumor. I'm sticking with Rodan.

I think I saw that. It looked like a folded wing or something.. Like a pterodactyl or something similar.

There was also the water bear thing in the teaser but that could have just been to create hype.

Ghidorah is just all kinds of stupid. I'd rather they stay away from there.

Rodan would work fine for me.

Well, clearly other monsters are involved:

In a January 2014 interview in Total Film magazine, it was revealed that Godzilla will be 350 feet (110 m) tall. According to special effect chief Jim Rygiel, the mechanics of Godzilla's fighting style is based on the study of animals, primarily bears and komodo dragons.

Yeah, well, one of us got smarter since he was nine, and the other apparently hasn't.

I imagine you could do a giant three-headed monster "right", but the original ghiderah was just as stupid as space-travel enabled, jet engine powered, flying, sabertoothed turtle.

My nine year old self loved it. Now my kids couldn't get me to spend $50 to bring the family to a movie so far beyond stupid. Give me realistic oversized, invincible monsters!!
