    Godzilla (reboot)

    If any of you remember the 2010 British film "Monsters", it was a terrific film shot for about half a million dollars about aliens on Earth which (to the dismay of MANY people) turned out to be a very chemistry-driven movie. Ultimately, the film led it's director and writer, Gareth Edwards, into being hired by Legendary Pictures to direct a reboot of the franchise.

    David Callaham (who wrote the atrocious script for the film adaptation to the video game Doom) was hired to write the reboot of this, and....thank God....Legendary Pictures rejected his script.

    They hired an unknown to write a new script. I haven't seen a good Godzilla flick yet, tbh. But it seems from both the directorial choice as well as choosing NOT to go forward with the project until they have an amazing script, they're likely not to fuck this one up. And honestly...after having seen Gareth Edwards' "Monsters" last year, i'm positive he'll make this into something amazing.

    This is a reboot I think I can get behind. I really loved "Monsters," so maybe this could turn out alright. I'll wait to hear more before I get excited, though.

    "Monsters" was a great movie...
    them hiring Gareth Edwards made me believe we can get a great Godzilla flick with character, emotion, and great use of the environment/surroundings to build the atmosphere

    Honestly, I just don't see Godzilla working without a guy in a suit being him. Yeah, it's cheesy and not realistic looking, but come on, that's Godzilla. That's the fun of Godzilla pictures is the cheesiness and epic monster battles. If this movie ends up being an overly CGI'd attempt to make Godzilla completely serious, I will vomit uncontrollably.

    Ehh, after Rise of the Planets of the Apes, an all CGI film wouldn't be too bad at all.

    agreed - I was the only person who went to the limited release showing, and while yes it got odd at the end, I enjoyed it - I'm sure he'll crank out something worthwhile

    Agreed! That movie set some new standards for motion capture/CGI. If they set out to do the very best they can manage with the technology, I'm sure that at least the monster itself wouldn't disappoint.

    No limited showing around here, sadly. :\ But it was really stellar to see it in blu-ray after hearing about it on here.

    It's amazing to see how invested Legendary is to Gareth Edwards. They completely believe that they've got THE director for this film, which is great.

    I couldn't believe when I first heard who got the directing gig. It's such a no brainer (and an excellent choice) that I'm surprised that the studio actually went with it. They usually fuck everything up.

    i hate to say it, but this could possibly be legendary
    yeah that's right, i said it

    this and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming out on the same day
    it's either gonna be an amazing day relishing in everything that was my childhood or my childhood is gonna be bound, raped, and left for dead on the side of the road
    but that date is looking like a double movie day for me, can't wait
    i feel like a fat kid in a candy shop

    i really liked Monsters and trust in Mr. Edwards to bring it

    First little update from the set! Nothing revealing. But I had no idea Bryan Cranston was on board for this! Just gets me more excited.

    Yeah, i'm excited to check this one out. It was filmed around Vancouver as well, in fact I was on the same street as the set last month, I got to see crushed buses and building debris everywhere. They were trying to pose New Westminster, BC (suburb of Vancouver) as San Francisco. They had signs everywhere welcome to San Francisco. SF Police Dept and other various hidden gems. I'm looking forward to the movie just to pinpoint areas around town! Haha.

    There have been "talks" about a potential Pacific Rim/Godzilla crossover, given Godzilla is an overall success.

    Also, if anyone can put their hands on who's doing the score for this film...Looked everywhere/can't find.

    Whoa, are those gills on his neck? This'll be the first time they explain how he's able to live underwater.

    I wouldn't mind bigger teeth (although I like how they kinda brought back the Heisei-era double rows), but overall I dig it too. It'll be good to see something old-school saurian in the cinema again.

    Bumping this thread with the same thing, but now with geeky NIN-references shopped in, yay!



    EDIT: damnit, forgot to add the essential "And he signs his name with a capital G" joke. Well, it's done now.

    WB/Legendary really wants this photo to be taken off and deleted finally from the whole internetz, but let's hope for the best.

    Aaaaand a concept trailer (without actual movie footage, since it was made for Comic-Con 2012) has leaked today. It is pretty neat. if Legendary didn't hunt it down yet, you can see it here:

    http://m.moviepilot.de/movies/godzil.../trailer/55716

    A new, official trailer will come out on the 3rd of November.

    Just gonna leave this here, since they appear to have replaced the trailer with the promo video from earlier in the year in the link above.

    Good call, thanks! Here's another link, just to be sure. It's a Hungarian site, so there's less chance of any studio ex's discovering it.

    (trivia: the title of the video is a codename, it means "the fat guy")

    I was able to download the teaser trailer of Dailymotion in pretty decent quality.
    I cannot fucking wait for this movie!
    I loved Monsters and was really excited they picked him to direct Godzilla.
    Then the cast came in and I grew even more excited.
    And not this teaser leaks... and man, do I have a Godzilla-size boner for this movie.
    I always wanted a serious tone Godzilla movie...
    the idea of a gigantic monster attacking a city should actually be a scary experience.
    and not the previous Americanized wisecracking, silly version we got from Roland Emmerich and co.
    Especially when you read that Roland Emmerich and co. weren't fans of nor even watched a Godzilla movie.
    They only got hired because they would do it for a specific budget and can do what they want with it.
    Now that's the kinda people you wanna hire?
    This new one is looking amaze-balls so far.
