This is going to be one hell of a summer for geeks, especially considering we’ve got Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Godzilla coming up. In fact, Mark Wahlberg is so excited to be part of Transformers, he’s already proclaimed it will be “the biggest movie of 2014.”
First there was the tweet from famous guitarist Slash, formerly of Guns N Roses. He’s actually seen Godzilla months in advance, and he really liked it a lot. “F’n epic” was his response. Now some other people have seen twenty minutes of the new model Godzilla. The verdict?
In addition to being the former guitarist of Guns N Roses, Slash has had a lengthy solo career, and he’s also a big fan of genre films, especially stuff with big dinosaurs and monsters. So of course he’s going to have an interest in the new incarnation of Godzilla, which is coming on May 16.
Michael Keaton is in the new RoboCop, and he had fun talking about the new RoboCop suit, which is much easier to move around in than the usual armored movie costume. Keaton should know. He had to wear that cumbersome, hard rubber Batsuit back in 1989, which was very hard to move around in, but it set the template for superhero costumes today.
We at TGD have high hopes for the next Godzilla movie because the 1998 American version really blew it, and we’re hoping an American version of the big green guy can finally get it right for once. While there’s no word yet on how good or bad the movie could be, there’s a promising sign that audiences are really looking forward to the famous firebreather’s return on May 16.
It’s been fifteen years since the disaster of the Roland Emmerich / Dean Devlin Godzilla remake, and the latest attempt to revitalize the franchise is coming on May 16, 2014. The new teaser trailer is out, and it gives audiences a good look at what the new model Godzilla looks like.
We often write about screenwriter David S. Goyer here on TGD, because the guy has always had major geek cred. He’s written scripts for the Christopher Nolan Batmans, Man of Steel, the Blade series, and recently he’s branched into game writing with Call of Duty 2: Black Ops.
Back in 1998, you may recall that Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin followed up their smash ID4 with a redo of Godzilla, which was dreadful. Now a new Godzilla movie, directed by Gareth Edwards, is coming next year, and apparently the new look of Godzilla has been revealed.
While Pacific Rim was a risky venture in the States, it’s apparently doing very well in China, a market the United States is counting on more than ever for extra box office. It still remains to be seen if Pacific Rim can do well enough to warrant a sequel, but now reports tell us that the film has not done well in the country that has always revered giant robots: Japan.
The last time there was an American version of Godzilla in 1998, it was complete crapola, so we’re hoping the next attempt, which is shooting right now for Legendary Pictures, will be much better. The next Godzilla is due next year, and the big green guy was certainly a topic of interest at Comic Con last weekend.
No, Godzilla’s not becoming a meth head, that’s not what makes him breathe fire, but as the reboot of Godzilla comes together, the main man of Breaking Bad may be battling an even bigger foe than speed.
Frank Darabont is the screenwriter/director who gave us the big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s Shawshank Redemption.
Just when you think everything is going fine with The Walking Dead and Godzilla, chaos ensues.
When the news hit that Godzilla was going to be remade again, it felt like a mixed blessing.
It’s been in the works for quite some time, there was even a teaser trailer shown at Comic-Con, but now it’s official: Godzilla will be back in 3D on May 16, 2014.
Yes, there is yet another Godzilla revival in the works, and why not? I mean, everything's getting rebooted these days, and the great beast could absolutely use one.
Legendary Pictures has confirmed that it is in the process of remaking the classic monster film.
Like it or not, until one of them really flops, movies based on games are what Hollywood's intent on making at the moment.
Legendary Pictures is trying to pull off what no American studio has been able to do yet: make a good Godzilla movie.
The fallout from the last American Godzilla film is long gone. But now Legendary Pictures, the same company behind Clash of the Titans, The Dark Knight, Inception, and 300, wants to give the big guy another shot.
