godzilla 2014

With the pending home video release of Gareth Edwards‘ 2014 reboot of Godzilla coming to a retailer near you in another week, we pause to do some navel gazing at all the things that he did wrong in the film. YEAH! Take that Edwards. You may be still growing as a filmmaker, and Godzilla was only your second movie, but since you didn’t make the Godzilla movie we all had playing in our heads we’re going to tear you a new one! Ahem. Now that I’ve got that out of my system, let’s introduce a couple of new videos to hit the interwebs today. On the one hand we have a judicious You Tuber who edited together all the Godzilla and MOTU bits in two vids that show how little screen time they all got, and secondly, Honest Trailers has put together a – well – honest trailer for Godzilla.

The legacy of the almighty Godzilla is such that most hardcore fans keep our minds occupied by the lovable picture of a giant, rubber monster with a man lurking inside. Such was the Japanese way of creating their iconic bane of Tokyo. Now, however, things are a little bit different. The 2014 reboot of the classic lizard is stepping things up a bit and turning Godzilla into something a little more realistic. Will it work out? Listen to what director Gareth Edwards has to say on the matter in the video below. (more…)

As mid-May looms ever-closer, the Godzilla marketing team is ramping up their efforts to get people interested. We’ve seen a great many adverts and other marketing materials, but so far there’s been very little to look at with regards to what the massive lizard looks like. Now, the powers-that-be have dropped three more TV spots on us. And guess what? Now we actually get a look at Godzilla’s face! Check them out below. (more…)

It’s less than two months before we get to see the return of one of the most iconic giant rubber monsters in cinematic history. Godzilla is steadily rampaging towards its release date and to celebrate the powers-that-be are plugging us with some more marketing. Check out the latest television trailer below for yet another taste of what we can expect. (more…)

There was once a Godzilla toy that stood about 2 to 3 feet tall, spit paper fire and bizarrely fired his fist like a projectile; it’s rare, it’s fondly remembered, and it’s about to get some competition from a brand new version of the King of Monsters, a toy made to promote the upcoming movie from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures. (more…)

It’s no news that there’s another Godzilla movie coming up and that right now they’re out hunting heads to fill up the cast list.  As unlikely as it may seem, one person on their target list is Oscar-winner and highly talented actress Juliette Binoche.

Well, damn.  That’s certainly not someone that I’d expect to see gracing the screen next to the big green lizard in yet another Hollywood reboot.  Binoche has made her name in such critically acclaimed films as The English Patient and Chocolat, so it seems like a bit of a downslide to be showing up in Godzilla the 2014 version.  But according to sources, she is indeed in talks to co-star in the flick.

There’s still no word on what the script is going to look like, but other casting talks include big names like Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene).

With a cast like this, Godzilla may actually shape up to be something quite interesting.  Of course, that’s assuming the producers can sell them on it.

By now, most of you probably know that there’s a new Godzilla movie coming, courtesy of Legendary Pictures.  But every good monster film needs at least a few humans in it, if only to give the big rubber baddy something to stomp on.  So casting has begun and two faces are being pulled from the acting masses.  It looks like Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Elizabeth Olson (Martha Marcy May Marlene) are currently in talks to take on roles in the flick.

If brought on board, they would potentially be joining up with Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), who also happens to be in talks, for the lead role in fact.  Unfortunately, nothing will be set in stone until the script, being rewritten by Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead) is officially ready to go.

Assuming all things go as planned, they hope to begin shooting next month and have the whole thing together for a planned release on May 16th, 2014.
