Godzilla News – Unveiling, Release and Giant Plants

24 10 2012

It has been almost a year since we heard any Major News regarding the Legendary Pictures Godzilla Film. Well recently there has been a lot major News and I have finally got round to writing it up. Firstly at this past years San Diego Comic-Con International during a session by Legendary Pictures a trailer for the film was unveiled. The trailer (which once again is not available on YouTube) apparently depicts Godzilla as the original TOHO Monster and in no way as the 1998 Zilla.

“The teaser trailer included a depiction of Godzilla faithful to the Toho monster, including its roar, and a “gigantic centipede-like monster.”” – Wikipedia

“A city decimated. Completely destroyed. The camera pans by the wreckage of a train, A distant voice is heard reading from the Book of Revelations. The voice sounds very familiar. Dust everywhere. Cars crushed. Holes in skyscrapers. It becomes obvious that the voice belongs to Raymond Burr from the original. We then see a giant centipede-like creature with many arms and legs smoldering. (You know what that means? Monster battles!) The city appears dead as a doornail. Then blackness. THE ROAR. As in THE roar. Huge bass drop. Raymond Burr finishes his famous speech. Dust…then an arm… a hand… with claws. Pan up… the fins. The head. Godzilla. As we know him. The real Godzilla. He roars again”. – Dread Central (Edited for Swear Words).

So the Good news is that it is THE JAPANESE GODZILLA. As I said before I am unable to get hold of the trailer, but here is something that is not far off, possibly even better.

So we have confirmation that it is coming but when. Well, a couple of months later a release date had been announced for the films release. The planned release date is MAY 16th 2014 (there is also the possibility that the film will be in 3D, however if a 2D version comes out too I strongly suggest that you go and see it in that format). Now 2014 is already going to be a big year for cinema with some major films being released that year. However there are 3 other reasons why it is an important year for cinema, Firstly it is the 60th anniversary of Akira Kurosawa‘s Masterpiece – Seven Samurai, Secondly it is the 60th anniversary of the original 1954 Japanese Godzilla Film, Thirdly it is the end of the 10 year hiatus Godzilla has been on since 2004, so within that there is the possibility of 2 Godzilla Films in 2014. So what a way to celebrate the 60th anniversary, 2 Godzilla Films (potentially).

Finally, this not related to the 2014 film but is Godzilla Related as well as BIG NEWS. For many years two Godzilla Films have been involved in a piece of DVD Controversy. Godzilla 1985 (one of my favourite films) and Godzilla vs Biollante (one of three Godzilla films I have not seen, and by far out of those 3 the one I want to see the most) have been available in many countries as well as on Video. However the DVD release has not been satisfactory with people in both America and The UK complaining about this. Well it looks like someone has taken notice and cares. Godzilla vs Biollante is getting released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 4th by Echo Bridge.  Hopefully it won’t be too long until Godzilla 1985 gets the same treatment. Really looking forward to that being released.

With the release of Godzilla vs Biollante onto DVD and Blu-ray soon as well as more news on the Legendary Pictures Godzilla Film, It is an exciting time to be a Godzilla Fan.

GENEPOOL (Someone on TV recently said that James Bond is the longest running Film Series in Cinema History. WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG, They were WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG).
