Perhaps this time we will let "our hero" Godzilla get some actual rest before dispatching him to battle the world's other major MUTOs? Is that too much to ask? We've known for months that Legendary is eager to stay in the 'Godzilla' business after the success of this summer's awesome Gareth Edwards' feature film -- after all, they did announce a sequel to the film within days of it hitting the big screen -- but there have been plenty of lingering questions as to when that would happen and who (or what) we could expect to see in the next feature.
In a move that surprised no one after the weekend box office report, 'Godzilla 2' is already in the works and we couldn't be more excited. Director Gareth Edwards' take on the iconic monster is one of the most beautiful and refreshing summer movies in a long time, bending over backwards to build tension and tease the the audience before unleashing a monster mash of a climax that has to be seen to be believed. Of course we want 'Godzilla 2.' We wanted a 'Godzilla 2' the moment the credits rolled.
Of course, there's one big important question: which monster(s) would Godzilla fight in the sequel?
Godzilla roars – ROARS! – back onto your local movie screens this weekend in a movie titled ‘Godzilla.’ Earlier this week, we were fortunate enough to speak with the title character in ‘Godzilla,’ Godzilla – who now has starred in 30 live-action films (that’s more than Jason Segel) -- and talk about his role as Godzilla in ‘Godzilla’ and what his future plans might be.
Gareth Edwards is exhausted. As 'Godzilla' prepares to open in theaters this week, it marks the end of a four-year journey for the British director. After getting some insight into his production schedule and doing a little math, we calculated that Edwards worked over 13,500 hours making 'Godzilla'. If you worked a normal 40-hour work week, that's over six years of work, and Edwards did that in just two years of filming and post-production. It's an interesting shift for a director who got his start in the business by winning a film challenge where a movie had to be created, start-to-finish, in just two days.
Go Gareth Edwards is tired, but, as he notes, he's certainly not complaining ("The sound of someone complaining about directing 'Godzilla'...that's a guy you want to punch in the face."). The good news for Edwards is, the work has paid off, with this trilling new 'Godzilla' movie. We caught up with Edwards recently in New York City to talk about his lack of sleep, what specific sounds made up Godzilla's new roar and the many easter eggs he has hidden throughout the movie.
Warner Bros. recently screened 'Godzilla,' the Gareth Edwards-directed reboot of the Toho classic, for select members of the press (insert self-congratulatory back pat). Though the rest of the world still has to wait until the beast stomps into theaters on May 16, the studio released a hefty photo gallery of 29 images (including some behind-the-scenes moments) from the film, in addition to teasing some bits about the future of the franchise.
With 'Godzilla' stomping into theaters next month, Legendary and Warner Bros. are helping us get better acquainted with director Gareth Edwards' vision for the monster via some interesting new featurettes that take you behind the scenes of this exciting new film. Where else are you going to see Bryan Cranston do his best impression of Godzilla's iconic roar?
All of the trailers for 'Godzilla' have put emphasis on tone, showcasing the aftermath of epic monster rampages and giving us tons of close-ups of people whose days have been pretty much ruined. But this new TV spot does something a little different, selling the human story behind all of the chaos and destruction. Oh, and it does so while offering our best look yet at Godzilla himself.
Gareth Edwards' 'Godzilla' will begin its theatrical romp on May 16, and although we've already seen preview footage and images from the film remake, they've only shown off the beast's ... well ... backside. This all changes as Empire magazine debuts its latest subscribers cover, featuring a black-and-white(-and-red) image of the most famous monster mid-roar.
Come Tuesday, December 10 at 1 pm EST, we'll get our first trailer for 'Godzilla,' the upcoming reboot from director Gareth Edwards. To hold you over until then, three new photos (including one of the colossal beast itself) from the film have been unveiled, and by the looks of stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, we'll be left speechless.
