If anyone was safe from the horrors of fat-shaming, you’d think it’d be Godzilla. After all, he’s a massive, terrifying monster whose only real job is to be as massive and as terrifying as possible.
Nevertheless, Japanese fans are reportedly mocking Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla for being “an American fatty.” “He’s gone and supersized himself,” one snarked. Hit the jump to see what else they had to say about the poor giant.

Its that time of year again. Jeff Cannata (formerly of the Totally Rad Show, now host of NLB and DLC, and a frequent co-host of the /Filmcast) has thrown down the gauntlet, and once again challenged /Film to compete with him in what has become an annual tradition: the Summer Movie Wager. Every year in the past I would make a guest appearance on the Totally Rad Show for this segment, but with that show now disbanded we have taken on the job of hosting this contest on /Film.
This year the contest includes Germain Lussier, Jeff Cannata and myself in a game is to decide what will be the highest grossing films of the Summer. It’s a free-for-all; the person with the best score wins. But it isn’t just that easy — not only do the participants need to predict what 10 films will be the highest grossing films domestically, but we need to place them in order. After the jump you can watch the full episode of the show with our predictions.

If you want to see Gareth Edwards‘ new film Godzilla and be surprised at the look of the beast itself, don’t watch this new trailer.

It’s also got a bunch of new footage detailing the story, which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston.

Legendary Pictures in conjunction with Warner Bros have released a new international trailer for Godzilla. The Godzilla Japanese trailer gives us a better look at the Japanese backstory of the creature, focusing a bit more on Ken Watanabe’s character, as well as the same soft yet tense building ominous score and series of “take my money now” teasing action sequence edits we’ve come to expect from this movie’s marketing campaign. You can watch the Godzilla Japanese trailer embedded after the jump.
IMAX has released an exclusive illustrated Godzilla IMAX poster for the film. No word on if this is poster will be given out at IMAX theaters as part of the company’s awesome Fanfix initiative, or if this is just another one-sheet for the film. Either way, its pretty cool and you can see the full poster after the jump.

WonderCon 2014 happened over the past Easter weekend, and the /Film crew was in attendance to take in all the movie studio presentations and give you our reactions to the footage. Unfortunately most of the footage had already been screened at other industry events like CinemaCon, but it was new for us and the site as we didn’t travel to Vegas this year. After the jump you can watch Russ, Germain and I talk about the footage we screened at the Warner Bros panel, which included an extended sequence from Godzilla and a short clip from Into The Storm. Watch the video blog embedded after the jump now.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Trailers and TV spots for Godzilla have been doling out information about the film in small chunks over time. That especially goes for the monster, which has been seen in the distance, through fire and smoke, and in fractured form. But Warner Bros. and Legendary aren’t being shy with the creature; there are quite a few full images out there — we just haven’t seen much in motion so far. This new TV spot gives up some new footage, including a great shot of Godzilla as he roars the “bending girder” sound that is so familiar. Check out the spot below. Read More »

There’s no shortage of monsters and supervillains coming our way this summer, but Sentinels and Decepticons have nothing on the behemoth that is Godzilla. And based on the trailers we’ve seen so far, Godzilla the movie may tower over most of its peers in terms of quality, too. The ads have been nothing short of fantastic, and today’s Godzilla extended look video is no different. Watch it after the jump.

Godzilla (the monster, and possibly the film) is gigantic, but at this point Legendary and Warner Bros. are all about revealing new glimpses of the film in the smallest ways. A pair of trailers, teaser and full-length, have been very shy about showing off the monster and how he stomps around the world, preferring instead to illustrate the aftereffects of said stomping. A growing collection of TV spots is following suit, showing new footage in bite-size chunks. Today we have three new Godzilla spots,
A long “extended look” is promised for Saturday April 5, at 4pm EST / 1pm PST, so we’ll have that for you soon. Read More »
Gareth Edwards and Legendary are getting ready to serve up some serious monster attacks in Godzilla. Two new Godzilla TV spots preview even more of the devastation that takes place when Godzilla (and probably another monster or two) make landfall. The great thing about these spots is that they continue the run of marketing Godzilla like a horror movie rather than a big action movie or sci-fi tentpole. That seems like the perfect way to get across a new vision of giant monsters, and really holds my interest in the film, rather than dissipating it by showing too much. Read More »
