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.

The Gamera trilogy from the 90s was awesome. Gamera vs. Iris is one the best kaiju movies of all time.

I've only watched the first one so far so that's good to know.

Slowed down, what most of us thought appeared to be a folded wing actually looks more like an insect leg.

It has also been confirmed that another monster will have wings".

Now I'm curious to see:

-The monster designs
-The origin of the monsters
-The origin of the huge skeleton
-The motivation behind Godzilla fighting the other monsters

I enjoyed these movies as a kid, but nowhere near as much as you folk here. Was hoping the breakdown would explain 1:36 of the trailer but it didn't. Any thoughts?

The panoramic view of the skyline and the falling streaks?

I'm guessing that's just a widened shot of the paratroopers holding flares in their hands. I can't imagine why they'd be sending those guys into the city like that though. I guess the flares could be used to 1) make sure they don't hit each other on the way down, as the weather seemed a bit rainy/foggy/hazey or 2) mark the location of some sort of bomb strike..

Marking a bomb strike seems unlikely, though, given the fact that the troopers would be bombed themselves and also that Godzilla is ****ing huge and likely wouldn't need any sort of marking in the first place.

Something else of note is at 1:44 during the shot of the huge skeleton. There's a large pile of bodies to the right of the explorers. They look pretty "fresh" so it'll be interesting to see how they got there.

Nope. Not ever in the history of ever would you do that in a tactical/combat situation. I know you're just guessing- but that scene kinda made me roll my eyes a little bit.

But I can deal with it, cause I'm as jacked as everyone else for this.

Wow, maybe I need to get my eyes checked! It looked like some alien tentacles or something to me. Watching it again (and wondering why I didn't notice the jumpers right before), I know see what they are if not why. Thanks.

My most anticipated movie in a long, long time...

Love the homage to 1954 and the twist about the nuke tests being a cover for them trying to kill Godzilla.

Oh and that final scene...just *chills*...

Godzilla vs. Mothra (Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth)
Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II
Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla
Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (Godzilla vs. Destroyer)

Overall the Heisei series of Godzilla movies were good; better effects, solid storytelling and all 7 followed the same continuity.

Favorites of the series, in order;
Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (Godzilla vs. Destroyer)
Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah
Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II

Moving into the 2000's started the Millennium series. (2000 - 2004)
Godzilla 2000: Millennium (Godzilla 2000)
Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (Godzilla x Megaguirus)
Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (GMK)
Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (Godzilla x Mechagodzilla)
Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (Godzilla x Mothra x Mechagodzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.)
Godzilla: Final Wars

While still solid movies there is no continuity with these films. Each one only ties to the very first (1954) Godzilla film, with the execption of Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (Godzilla x Mechagodzilla) & Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (Godzilla x Mothra x Mechagodzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.).

They mess with the whole Godzilla cannon in Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (GMK) but it's a good movie.

Favorites in the series, in order;
Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (Godzilla x Mechagodzilla)
Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (Godzilla x Mothra x Mechagodzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.)
Godzilla: Final Wars
