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.
'Godzilla,' the 2014 version from relative newcomer Gareth Edwards, is just about as good as a big fat summer tentpole movie gets these days. It's fun, scary and awe-inspiring in just the right places. Some of the acting is dull and the dialogue isn't exactly dripping with nuance, but these concerns are secondary. The set pieces are marvelous, the special effects are terrific and great care has gone into keeping the visual storytelling fresh.
You want a poster quote, cause here it comes: this 'Godzilla' is a monster!
On the heels of news that we'll be seeing the first full trailer for Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar' attached to 'Godzilla' when it hits theaters on May 16, we now also have the first official poster for the sci-fi epic, and it certainly doesn't disappoint. Actually, it's a little disquieting.
Following yesterday's release of the first official clip from 'Godzilla,' Warner Bros. and Legendary have brought us four more clips from the upcoming film to further intensify your excitement for the return of the classic monster. In addition, they're also taking us behind the scenes with 11 minutes of footage to show you all the hard work that went into bringing this legend back to the big screen.
Warner Bros. and Legendary are doing a great job stirring up excitement for 'Godzilla,' and today brings the first official clip from the film, which features the set-up for quite an impressive monstrous showdown -- it also informs us that Godzilla might not be the big baddie of this film after all.
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.
Just a few weeks before 'Godzilla' finally hits theaters, we're getting one final trailer for the film (dubbed the "Asia Trailer," mostly because it features Japanese subtitles). We've seen a lot of 'Godzilla' footage to date, but here we get our best sense of the plot of the film: Godzilla is awoken to defeat other monster(s) that destroying San Francisco.
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?
Forget about superheroes: no one is looking to take the box office by storm this summer quite like 'Godzilla,' who remains just as popular and iconic today as he was 60 years ago. The latest entry in the film's brilliantly run marketing campaign is a poster highlighting the film's IMAX 3D release, which seems like a pretty cool way to see a movie about a monster the size of a skyscraper.
