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 Gareth Edwards monster revamp has the second-biggest opening weekend of the year, behind the $95m opening weekend of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It is ahead of the $91m debut for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and currently the 6th-biggest debut weekend for a non-sequel. Oh, and it earned another $103m overseas, for a massive $196m worldwide cume. It is beyond cliche to refer to a Godzilla film as a “box office monster”, but if the shoe fits…

Anyway, the weekend multiplier causes a little concern, but we’re probably looking at a domestic total of between $245m and $280m, with the possibility that audiences don’t like it as much as critics, in which case give it a 2.4x and a $225m total. Obviously all of these possibilities qualify as “good news”, so this is just a matter of fun-with-math until we see how it plays after Memorial Day weekend. We’ll surely see a sequel to this one in a few years.
And by no means is this by a fanboy. Also from the article:

I can’t exactly pretend that a big-budget remake of Godzilla scoring huge is “good for the industry” in any serious fashion, but again I’m always happy to see a well-marketed movie over-perform the pre-release expectations.

I read the Asia/Japanese release is pushed off by 3 weeks.

That will hurt.

Fans won't want to wait and will base ratings off of $#itty camcorder copies...

But if you went in cold, I could see how you might think, "Can we see these MF's fight already?"
This movie was loaded with easter eggs from previous godzilla movies.

This film was decent, but it was a fantastic love letter to the king of monsters. That made it more enjoyable for me.

Even if there's a huge drop off after opening weekend finishing in the #7-5 range is very likely...

As of this morning it's no 8 for the year and about 1.5 mil behind no 7...

Looks like there will be a second and a third Gareth Edwards directed Godzilla film.

http://www.scified.com/site/godzilla...and-godzilla-3

Quote:
Everyone has heard the big news that Godzilla director, Gareth Edwards has been hired on to direct the first Star Wars spin-off film, but what some may have overlooked is that the same article which announced the big news, also confirmed that Legendary has got Gareth Edwards locked in to direct not one Godzilla sequel but two! Godzilla 2 and Godzilla 3 (working titles) will both be directed by Edwards, following themonstrous success of the first one this past weekend.

Here's the excerpt from THR's article which mention the two sequels:

"WME-repped Edwards is attached to direct Godzilla 2 and 3, but while story ideas exist, the Godzilla 2 project is still in early development and does not even have a script."

Currently, Godzilla has made $112.8 Million domestically, with a world total of $216.2+ Million. Godzilla is a smash hit, the ultimate summer blockbuster and has put Gareth on the map as a highly bankable director in Hollywood.

We at Scified and Godzilla-Movies.com wish Gareth all the best and a huge congrats!

Be sure to keep it locked here for any and all updates on Godzilla 2 and Godzilla 3!

I honestly think it can hit the $130 and perhaps even the $150 mark domestically...

Easy. I'm betting it passes Rio 2 this weekend. Probably today when the numbers are updated. Although it will be slowed by the Xmen release. This would be an awesome weekend for a double header, which I haven't done since I was a teenager.
