Seems like they are going for a direct sequel (of the original) rather than reboot, which I think is a really smart move. Has anyone noticed the other monsters in the trailer? Tif, I figured you may know, but does Warner Bros./Legendary own the rights to the other monsters beside Godzilla? There are definitely 2 others in that trailer


I saw 3 shots that were definitely something other than Godzilla.... but they could all have been Rodan, one certainly was.

* Pan up shot with Rodan flying straight down towards camera.
* 2 long pointy flat things diving into the water. (I thought these were Rodan's wing tips, wings pulled back to dive into the water like those diving birds)
* A long slender curved/hooked at the end thing hitting the ground. I thought that this could be a finger like thing on Rodan's wing like bats have. Or, maybe Kumonga's leg?

Yeah, I think those are all Rodan. Someone claims that the Shobijin that follow Mothra around are in the blown out rubble of Treasure Island building in the Vegas shot. Better eyes than mine, if that's the case.

Also, the money shot of the soldiers on the roof of the building in San Francisco firing the flares....... I'm not certain that's G. Not sure who else it might be, but I'm definitely of the opinion it's "other".

Fwiw, at ComiCon last summer the director said that his film is going to be more or less based on the 1954 original.

That Godzilla movie looks legitimately scary and I think thats great. The red flare/red halo jump visual is awesome. You get the feeling from the first trailer that the inexperienced team is going in because there's no one left to send.

I hope it holds up ok in the second half of May time frame. Suspect quality not withstanding, its been a killer the past few years (After Earth, MIB3, Battleship, Robin Hood, Prince of Persia, Terminator Salvation, Speed Racer, Posiden). Its sandwiched in between Amazing Spider Man 2 and X Men Days of Future Past & Maleficent.

All the other monster IP would likely fall under 'Godzilla', as they're all the same studio; it's not like MGM owns Rocky Balboa but not Clubber Lang, for example. So I imagine the deal included the whole bucket of kaiju that appeared in the original Toho movies.










Hehe...... 'monster IP'....... :lol:

definitely going to watch this tonight http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/behind ... -pi-682526

A new documentary traces the fall of leading VFX house Rhythm & Hues and is packed with information that explains the problematic VFX business model, as well provides some revealing moments that expose how the troubles have impacted those involved.

It grossed five times its production budget.

R&H went belly up because of systemic failures of the VFX industry as a whole.

Graphic designer buddy is watching this at his desk now. Forgot how badly the Academy and Ang Lee treated R&H the night of the Oscars.

Rush will be the next blu-ray I buy. Then probably Gravity. I've bought about 5 BDs in the last 3 years but I really want to enjoy those movies again on my own system.

Yeah, because people drank the cool-aid and believed the "best picture" type hype. Then they saw it... and not one talked about it again. Reason... because it actually sucked.

Sometimes I do wonder if the movie industry pushes a movie that they know isn't good... but just by tacking Oscar buzz to it they see if they can get the people to flock to see it. Sort of like... giving Mike Green (Caps) Norris Trophy buzz all year and suddenly the hockey world thinks that he is the best thing since sliced bread. Then people actually watch him play defense and no one talks about him anymore.

I don't understand how you can conflate the business woes of the FVX house - that were locked in place before the film was ever even released - with the quality the film they were working on. The filed for bankruptcy like 11 days before the Oscars last year, but that was the endgame of a series of events that stretched back to 2009 when R&H was engaged to do the VFX on a fixed-price contract. You're claiming fault lies in the quality of the final product, when the reality is that before a single frame of live action was ever even shot - before any actors were even cast - the ultimate demise of R&H was the likely outcome of their work on Pi.

I mean, you can say it goes back further than that even, if you want to take an industry-wide perspective of why a noted and respected VFX house was even in the position of doing fixed-price work in the first place.

Watched the last half hour of Iceman and the last half hour of Glengarry Glen Ross last night in bed. Not sure why I started watching one without finishing the other the previous few nights.
