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.

Ok, so after reading this thread, I decided to check out the original Godzilla, or Gojira (1954). This is the original Japanese one with subtitles. I thought it was a pretty good flick. Very somber and real drama, not camp.

So can someone tell me is the American version of 1956 the same story only with American actors?

Essentially yes, Raymond Bur (aka Perry Mason), plays an American reporter in Tokyo when Godzilla attacks. Piss poor editing and less somber story. Watch if you want to but you're not missing anything if you don't watch it.

New interview with Director Edwards.

Describes the lead up to the first reveal of Godzilla in the movie.
Describes the process of developing his (her?) foe/s.
Describes a bit of the theme.
Touches on some of the motivation for Godzilla/the creature/s.
Talks about how this movie relates to the Toho/Japanese G-films.

Probably some light spoilers...

And now GAMERA!!!

Now news of a new Gamera movie!!

http://robojapan.blogspot.com/2014/0....html?spref=fb

Quote:
While Legendary Pictures is finishing up on their production of a 60th anniversary Godzilla film here in the states back in Japan Kadokawa studios is in the early stages of production on a 50th anniversary Gamera movie. The plans for this new film were revealed recently when the Japanese retailer Amiami listed an advertisement for the upcoming Summer issue of Newtype magazine that has the exclusive scoop on the details. The issue will reportedly contain storyboard images and other pre-production art. Until now a 50th anniversary Gamera film had been speculated but not confirmed.

In recent years Kadokawa has shown a great interest in resurrecting the fantasy film franchises' of Daiei starting with 2010's 'Daimajin Kanon, a television drama based on the studio's Daimajin trilogy produced in the late 1960s.

Many fans of the Japanese giant monster genre (kaiju-eiga) consider Kadokawa's three Heisei era (1995 - 1999) to be the best ever produced. That being said the last Gamera movie, the 2006 release 'Gamera: The Brave' failed to recapture that glory. It will be interesting to see just what Kadokawa will have up it's sleeve to try and keep pace with Legendary's 'Godzilla' and the new bread of Kaiju films being produced in Japan as of late.

True, but the Kadokawa Gamera movies of the 90's were some the best kaiju movies ever made. Willing to bet it will only released in Japan, but still a guy can hope.

And to start off today's G'zilla news a story I've avoided reading.

It's close enough I'll risk it.

*SPOILERS BELOW*

Total Film was lucky enough to be amongst the first people in the world to gaze upon the glory of Gareth Edwards' Godzilla this morning, in the swanky surroundings of the Mayfair Hotel.

Godzilla's second trailer really burned the competition in its first week.

The preview for the reboot of the famous flame-spewing lizard drew 26.3 million YouTube views in its debut, according to technology firm Zefr, which tracks the numbers.
Those first-week numbers crushed the opening weeks of other big-budget movies coming this spring and summer. For example, the Amazing Spider-Man 2's trailer did 19.7 million first-week views, the best among the trio of 2014 Marvel comics-based movies.

Reporters with the IGN website said they saw the movie and gave a few minor spoilers.

“Godzilla himself is 350 feat high, making him the biggest Godzilla yet seen onscreen,” IGN wirtes. “It’s also about a family that’s torn apart by an apparent natural disaster that took place in Japan 15 years ago,” it continues.

IGN also said that it learned “a plot point that makes the film 400% more awesome, but Gareth swore us all to secrecy so we’re not going to spoil it here.”
