I'd be ok with it.  I mean, not literally until the last minute.  The amount of Godzilla in the '14 movie worked great for me.  #sorrynotsorry

It's an even better cure for insomnia than most Pluto cartoons!

Oh, it's officially announced? I assumed it was just a rumor! I forgot about this Comic Con business.

Alright then, I can bear some Bear! 

 

 

Yeah, it was announced during the SDCC panel, I believe. They also confirmed the original Godzilla March will be returning.

Not sure if that's a good idea...

 

I'm assuming it will be adapted and not quoted wholesale. It could work dependant on its use.

The story certainly sounds preposterous enough for a Godzilla movie.

 

"Man is responsible for mass extinction, and the planet is dying, so let's find a bunch of ancient gigantic monsters that will save the planet by fighting each other."

 

But goddamn, King Ghidorah vs Godzilla on a big budget, plus Godzilla March returning ... Life is good again.

I only just got around to watching the trailer!

 

Looks great!  That use of “Clair de Lune” was actually one of the cooler things I’ve heard in a trailer in a while.  Certainly better than a way slowed down cover of a well-known pop song.

Didn't the first Godzilla use Ligeti? Definitely continuing a trend.

Really?  Don’t think I ever watched it.  I remember going into that movie knowing virtually nothing about it

Seriously?  

 

Now I’m intrigued.

His two Cloverfield scores plus Colossal seemed like a warm-up. It has a potential of being good. Or good enough at least.

Clair de Lune and Godzilla ... I dunno, guys.  I laughed when I heard it. Is that the intention? 

 

Seems more appropriate for Mothra.

 

And this movie looks Emmerich scale apocalyptic, only better.

And it's got that androgynous child actor from Netflix's Stranger Things. That means millions of people who are normally not into Godzilla are now gonna be converted. A brilliant move? 

 

It's stunt casting at its most cynical, I guess. Vera Farmiga might also have been cast to lure fans of The Conjuring movies, and millennials seem to recognise Charles Dance from Game of Thrones. It feels like a repeat of the Bryan Cranston hype surrounding the first movie. I'm sure its $93 million opening weekend was influenced significantly by the Breaking Bad effect.

 

But whatevs. If it helps bolster the movie's reception, I'm cool with it. As the Pacific Rim flicks have demonstrated, giant monsters alone can't sell a movie in America, you need established and well known actors to hold the audience's hands along the way.

Nobody gives a shit about any of the human scenes in Godzilla movies.

 

A movie of just monster scenes would bore the heck out of me.  I think I just have a very different mindset from you kaiju fans.

This was pretty much my reaction.  It's fun!

Have you watched Shin Godzilla yet, or have you been too busy in the new country home chopping wood?
