    Yeah, this movie is going to be unlike any movie before it. Such an original take on an otherwise often seen concept.

    That said I agree. The '98 film was made by people who had no respect for Godzilla, and even openly dissed the classic films a few times if my memory is right. This new film is clearly made by someone who understands Godzilla and doesn't want to screw it up.

    Trailer Report: Second Preview of 'Godzilla' Crushes Competition
    The Japanese monster icon's latest coming attraction had a better first week than "X-Men," "Captain America" or "Spider-Man."

    Those first-week numbers crushed the opening weeks of other big-budget movies coming this spring and summer. For example, the Amazing Spider-Man 2's trailer did 19.7 million first-week views, the best among the trio of 2014 Marvel comics-based movies.

    The Godzilla trailers have been a master class in how to pimp a monster movie. The teaser offered just enough of the creature to satisfy long-time fans but not so much as to spoil all the surprise. This trailer is really brilliant. Lots of awesome destruction porn, little teases of the monster and a good helping of star Bryan Cranston work together to build excitement without actually spoiling anything. Well done, Warner Bros and Legendary. Well done, indeed. I for one can't wait for the movie to open on May 16.

    Excellent. Great to hear it's getting good reception.

    On a side note, I've heard great things from a couple of my peers at college. They're pumped for this, too.

A strong opening weekend, followed by several solid weeks and a potentially strong international box office would not only make Godzilla a hit, but would also all but guarantee sequels in the years to come.

    Godzilla’s Gareth Edwards On Monsters, Sequels, And A Pacific Rim Crossover
    Quote Originally Posted by David Wharton

The two films have very different approaches to their similar subject matter, so that’ll likely remain only a subject for fan fiction. Besides, as Edwards points out, then he’d have to fight Rim director Guillermo del Toro to decide who would direct the movie. “He would kick my ass,” joked Edwards. He did have another crossover in mind, though. “I’d like to see Godzilla fight the Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters because after he destroys him, it would be toasted marshmallows for everyone.” Now if we can just find a giant monster made out of chocolate and graham crackers…

    Finally, Edwards definitely sounded amenable to directing more Godzilla films if this new one is a success. “There were so many great ideas that we just couldn’t fit into one movie. I guess that’s why God created sequels.”

    5 movies revolutionising CG in 2014
    We look at five movies that are really pushing the VFX envelope this year, in the fourth in our series of articles sponsored by HP.
    01. Godzilla

    It's the most anticipated monster movie of the year, and this co-production from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros is the latest reboot of Ishirō Honda's '50s classic, this time re-imagined by British director Gareth Edwards.

    Edwards shot to prominence after his directorial debut Monsters was released in 2010. Edwards famously filmed the movie with a cast made up non-actors, and also - thanks to a tiny budget - worked as the visual effects lead, using Adobe's After Effects.

    There was an online rumour at the time that the movie cost just $15,000 to produce, after Best Buy totted up the cost of the kit that Edwards used during the shoot. It wasn't quite made for that - Edwards later confirming that it was more like a few hundred thousand - but the prospect of seeing what he can do with more than $150 million certainly whets the appetite.

    For Godzilla, though, Edwards has passed over the VFX mantle to MPC, with Guillaume Rocheron taking on supervisory role. And if the early trailers are anything to go by, we're in for the most spectacular monster flicks in movie history.

    Box Office: 'Godzilla' Roars in Early Tracking
    The Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. tentpole hopes to launch a studio franchise

    The movie, hoping to finally launch a Hollywood studio franchise headlined by the giant lizard, could be a defining moment for Legendary Pictures, which spearheaded the $160 million reboot. Legendary co-financed 75 percent of Godzilla, with Warner Bros. putting up the rest of the money.

    Godzilla opens in North American theaters on May 16. It makes its international assault at the same time. Box-office observers believe Godzilla will have even more strength overseas.

    It's nice that we're getting a villain monster to fight Godzilla this time around.

    Legendary's Thomas Tull Talks 'Godzilla,' Universal Move, China Plans in Rare Interview
    As Legendary Pictures gets ready to unleash its new Godzilla movie on May 16, Legendary CEO Thomas Tull said that the $160 million movie could begin to turn a profit once it hits $450 million at the worldwide boxoffice.
    Quote Originally Posted by Gregg Kilday
    “Starting a new franchise, if it did $450 million worldwide, anything above that would be pretty good. It’s still expensive, but it’s not a $200 million movie,” Tull explained as part of a wide-ranging interview conducted by Hollywood Reporter executive editor Matthew Belloni at THR’s annual Power Lawyers Breakfast, which took place April 30 at Spago in Beverly Hills.

    Legendary spearheaded the reboot of the venerable Japanese monster movie, putting up 75 percent of the budget, with Warner Bros., which is releasing the film, handling the rest.

    Why mount a new Godzilla when the last version, released by Sony in 1998, received a mixed reception, grossing $379 million worldwide? “We make movies I want to see,” said Tull. “I’ve loved Godzilla since I was a kid.” He explained that Legendary’s re-imaging of Godzilla was akin to how Christopher Nolan re-invigorated Batman in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, on which Legendary also partnered with Warners. “Everyone said that franchise is broken, but Chris had a vision. Sometimes instead of just talking about it, you just have to do it and show folks this is our version of it,” Tull said.

    In this case, Tull is betting on Gareth Edwards, a young British director, whose previous film was the low-budget indie Monsters (2010). “I was blown away by his movie Monsters, which he made for $500,000. He did the effects on his laptop. I thought if we give him another half a million dollars…,” Tull said, getting a laugh from the room full of high-powered attorneys.

    He also credited Legendary president and chief creative officer Jon Jashni and his film team “for constantly looking for real voices and great directors. That’s part of our thing. Zack Snyder (Watchmen), Guillermo Del Toro (Pacific Rim), now Gareth. We try to stand next to people who are more talented than we are and make a business out it.”

    But Tull shut down any speculation about a possible Godzilla sequel lurking in the shadows, saying, “We don’t ever talk about sequels until we’ve earned that right. I’m superstitious about it.”

    Godzilla's Secret History
    Godzilla is the original radioactive superhero -- or antihero, in this case. The reptilian giant was born out of a genre of Japanese film called Hibakusha Cinema, developed in the unique cultural climate of post-war Japan.
