Greetings from Godzilla

A our first set visit

By Robert T. Trate     March 20, 2013

Legendary Pictures (Warner Brothers) has posted a quick hello from director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) on the first day of shooting on Godzilla. Though this is just a short tease, I have to ask, is this something you Maniacs like to see? Back in the day it would be set visits on “Entertainment Tonight” or a magazine spread of pictures. Literally they started shooting on Monday and already we have a 15 second set visit. Is this too soon or just the way the world works now?


Personally I loved “The Hobbit Video Blogs”,  but they were crafted to be a tease yet entertaining as well. This seems to way too short ad cheap. 


I want your opinions Maniacs. Sound off below. 


Godzilla features the talents of Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Ken Watanabe (Batman Begins), Elizabeth Olsen (Silent House), and Juliette Binoche (The English Patient) are starring in the film, with David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck) and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad).


Godzilla is slated to open on May 16, 2014, the film is expected to be presented in 3D.

CGI Godzilla...lots of actors...no monster on monster action...I'm not thrilled yet.  Monsters was a good film, but it was slow as hell.  Hope he can up the action quota on this one.

I agree Bob. This is just a "by the way" sort of video. PJ's looks inot his films showed something, whether behind the scenes or small snippets, they had interesting commentary and some Q&A with some of the actors as well as introductions. And they were entertaining and funny at times.

Mr Edwards would do well to report or make these videos, even if cheap, when they have some meat to them. Otherwise get to work because no one is really that interested in YOU the way we are with PJ who is loved worldwide

Yeah, that was pretty much just a total waste of 16 seconds.

I wanna see what Godzilla looks like already!!!

Ok Maniacs, I have returned.  My first post in over a year.  While I haven't posted a great deal over the past 2 years due to awkward work scheduling and just simply having too much going on... I'm ready to get back into the swing of things. 

Now to get this one out the way.  Looking forward to the upcoming Godzilla.  Been a longtime fan since I was a kid, (minus Son of Godzilla and Roland Emmerich's debacle).  Though while pleased shooting is underway, but I think perhaps waiting a week or two for something a bit more.... tangible I suppose like seeing a scene completed rather than a 15 second heads-up to let people know "We have started."

Gareth Edwards talked about making this version of Godzilla "MEAN, SERIOUS AND SCARY" without the hokiness humor the series has been famously or mostly infamously known for.  We'll see if he delivers the goods.

 The video is stupid but I have high hopes for this movie.

 @RaithManan, glad to see you back.. btw Raith  that was exactly what G.E said bout the new Godzilla movie. Some of my friends that whent to the San Diego Comic con. Watched the teaser trailer of Godzilla, they all loved it and said it looked so good , still waiting on that teaser my self. As for the other monsters that will be in the movie who knows who they will be.? However this project did begin with what was thought to be a 45min. 3D IMAX movie with Godzilla vs Hedora, a.k.a the Smog Monster, then it all shifted and was put on hold then' the anouncement came that Legendary Pictures was to produce film in higher budget and longer in runing time ..so here we are now . @shac, i hear you man, i think it will be a good one and problably the best one yet...still i wish they showed what Godzilla will look like..

 i skiped the video just on what everyone has said.  But yes this is gonna be interesting. The anticipation is fucking killing me on this lol  i like the aproach G.E has put in to this as he said this will not be a funny movie, and that's great to know, it takes it back to the Original wich was verry dark..

the anticipation on the last movie was super high and it SUCKED!!!!!!!  So I am not going to get worked up for this one.

thezillaman 3/20/2013 1:44:46 PM
