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.

I really liked it. it was pretty basic, but he stayed focused in character. Mainly due to the low budget though.....

Its available on Netflix.

Some early reaction from someone who's seen it. Apparently, they hold back the big Godzilla reveal until nearly the end.









Are you expecting the reboot of Godzilla to feature an endless array of monster-on-monster fight scenes, where two nigh-invincible creatures slug each other with computer-generated punches until one of them finally goes down for the count? If so, you’d better wait for the fourth Transformers film, because Godzilla is so not that movie. In fact, though the press saw Godzilla for the first time today in Los Angeles, they didn’t actually see much of the titular monster, who remains an elusive presence in his very own film. Director Gareth Edwards wouldn’t have had it any other way.
“[If] you throw everything you can at the screen, you’ve got nowhere else to go,” said Edwards after the screening, when Vulture asked him about his bold approach to the film, which holds back the first reveal of Godzilla — and the first full-fledged fight — for as long as possible. His goal, said Edwards, was “not to frustrate the audience, but to tease them. It’s kind of like cinematic foreplay.”

How will that go over in a multiplex more accustomed to orgiastic spectacle than foreplay? We’d love to tell you how it played today, but we’re under embargo; what we are allowed to tell you is how Edwards carefully calibrated his approach to the central creature, who is mostly seen in glimpses until the very end. “What we were trying to do when we designed the movie was to incrementally build and build,” said Edwards. “So hopefully, you get the big climax at the end and it has the maximum power possible — and then it’s the end credits.”

This reboot, then, is the sort of exercise in anticipation that recalls movies like Jaws, Alien, and Jurassic Park, and Edwards said it was the latter film in particular — which, like Godzilla, holds back the big Tyrannosaurus Rex reveal until an hour has passed — that served as his primary touchstone in several ways. “Jurassic Park has thirty visual effects shots in it, and it’s one of the classics,” he noted, explaining his judicious approach to CGI. (There’s plenty of effects work in the film, but it’s used mostly to convey the massive aftermath of those discreetly glimpsed monster battles, which wreck several cities.) Edwards said he tried to resist the temptation “to get seduced by the spectacle of it too much, because in my opinion, you can end up reaching a plateau” of CGI fatigue.
Let Godzilla's incredibly effective marketing campaign serve as your barometer, then: Those terrific trailers are mostly made of mood, serving some striking city visuals and terrified reaction shots with just a sliver of Godzilla himself, and the feature-length film pretty much sticks to that recipe, too. You won't have to wait much longer to see how it all comes together: Godzilla is out May 16.

Doesn't tell me much. Screen time and building up to the reveal is old hat for entertainment and presentation. If the story is compelling and the actors good (which this cast is) the movie can still be a winner.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes comes to mind- almost all back story yet wonderfully done.

A few extended clips.

WARNING: MOST CONTAIN SPOILERS!



Extended clip from trailer with Cranston. The little I've seen of him has been impressive.



Best clear shot of flying MUTO and nice Godzilla reveal...
