John Buck 41: 2 Godzilla trailer threads this morning? Hmmm.


It's almost like someone is coordinating a PR campaign. Almost like that. Not that this wasn't a completely informative article, of course, which with its three from two completely different people firmly established the basic premise that the internet is abuzz about the new Godzilla movie, which if you haven't seen the trailer yet you should really watch right now and get involved in the conversation.

This better not fail, only because I want to see Cranston in as many new movie roles as possible.

And I should say that I am willing to give this Godzilla movie a chance, in large part because of Bryan Cranston being in it, but I think the director should be required to sign an agreement allowing viewers to punch him in the stomach each time a shaky cam is used.

That was what struck me about this trailer, the noticeable lack of shaky cam. It's not completely eliminated, but much, much more restrained than previously. Luckily, I think shaky cam is passe again; Avengers, no, Pacific Rim, no, etc.
 
2014-02-26 10:39:51 AM  
Looks like some nice disaster porn, only problem Cranston looks a tad whiney from the preview. We need him to go full Heisenberg!

Will he pick up a bus, and throw it back down?

This better not end with the heroes killing Godzilla with a virus. Or nukes. Or a nucular virus.

loki see loki do: Will he pick up a bus, and throw it back down?


If he's as big as the trailer shows him, he won't even notice a bus. He barely should notice a skyscraper; think of you walking through a field of wheat. That's what Godzilla's going to think the biggest buildings are.

Those weren't tests! We were trying to kill it!

Yep.

With your purposeful grimace and terrible sound, your disappointment is as palpable as spitting high-tension wires.

Why do you assume it was 30,000' under the water at the time? My reading of the trailer was that Godzilla was active (the events of the original Godzilla film). It seems to me that the one Godzilla movie that never gets retconned out of existence is the original. Even Godzilla85 kept that one as true.

I'm still kinda "meh" on this, in the "I just don't really see the point, or what new original thing they're going to do with it." A much more interesting Godzilla movie would be one based on the comic "Godzilla: Half Century War", but I'm a sucker for James Stokoe's design work.

Better movie: Godzilla vs. Pacific Rim Kaiju

Godzilla could call up some of his buddies/former adversaries to assist and we could help them with our robots. That movie writes itself.

And both are owned by Legendary so a cross over could possibly happen. It would be awesome to see a Godzilla Vs Gipsy in a 1 on 1... ultimately culminating in a final battle with a Godzilla / Gipsy Vs Cat 5 Kaiju / King Ghidora.

There's another Io9 thread analyzing the trailer, and it looks like we're getting multiple monsters in the film. Quite possible including Rodan and Mothra

It's already better than Cloverfield (which I didn't hate, actually) because you will care if Cranston lives or dies.  Can't really say the same for the cast of Cloverfield.

Is that the Vegas Statute of Liberty?  Rather clever, that.

I knew about the multiple monsters before this trailer even dropped. It has been around the internet since trailer 1.
