Anyone following the site should know that a new Godzilla film is in the works and fans of THE giant monster are eagerly looking forward to hear more. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards (‘Monsters’) though no plot details have been leaked out quite yet. The cast itself has some great names attached to it such as Aaron Taylor-Johnson (‘Kick-Ass 2’), Bryan Cranston (‘Breaking Bad’), David Strathairn (‘Alphas‘), Ken Watanabe (‘Batman Begins’, ‘Inception‘) as well as a slew of other actors you’ve probably seen around. The film won’t be opening until May 16th 2014 so we still have quite a bit of time for news of the film to start coming out though that wait is about to be cut down a little.
With so little news in months after it began production back in March, when can you expect to find out more? I would say your best bet is going to be Saturday, July 20th, when Gareth Edward’s ‘Godzilla’ is going to be having it’s own Comic-Con panel! There’s no real notice if this is a re-boot or a sequel. though. as the director was quoted to say “My main idea was to imagine ‘If this really happened, what would it be like?’ I want to take a grounded, realistic approach to a Godzilla film.” I’m guessing we’re going to be seeing a dark and gritty film as it’s a popular style these days and one that would be fitting for that description. Personally it’s a style I think would be really fitting for Godzilla and I just hope it remains true to as much of the source material as possible while breaking new ground.
Warner Brothers and Legendary are pulling out all of the stops on this one and the local marketing is already pulling it’s punches ahead of Comic-Con. The first step? It looks as if Godzilla attacked a warehouse ahead of the main event and it’s covered not only with the Legendary logo but giant claw marks have dragged through it’s exterior.
I’m wondering if we’re going to see more damaged buildings or something else popping up for the event as we move closer to Comic-Con opening it’s doors to the public.
Are you looking forward to see what Legendary is going to be doing with Godzilla? Did the last movie ruin any hope for the franchise or are you hoping we’ll get a fresh take that will put the King of the monsters back on his throne?
