Godzilla Edwards Cranston

The second Godzilla trailer hit on Tuesday and fan anticipation for the film went through the roof. Almost every shot crafted by director Gareth Edwards looked like a painting, and then there was that huge-ass monster popping out of the sea. We’ve had a few days to digest the trailer, and now Empire got Edwards to break down the trailer scene by scene. He offers up some cool teases and interesting info in the ten-minute plus video.

Watch that below, and see a bunch of new images, an infographic showing the creature’s size, a Godzilla Snickers commercial and a reaction to 20 minutes of footage that screened overseas. Read More »

We’ve seen a new poster and heard the monster’s roar, now here’s the second full trailer from Legendary’s big reboot of Godzilla. What more is there to say?

We see the monster’s nuclear origins, and hints of his immense size and power, but this is still much more of a tease than anything else; if you hate the fact that trailers seem to give absolutely everything away you’ll be happy here. While we do see Godzilla, there’s no one huge money shot. There is, however, a hint of one of the film’s other monsters. This is a great trailer; watch below. Read More »

One of the biggest questions during production of Gareth Edwards‘ remake of Godzilla was the look and sound of the creature himself. Would Edwards stay true to the classic, original look of the Japanese monster or try something new? The answer, not surprisingly, is a little of both. We have yet to see a clear, full image of the beast but a special cover of the latest issue of Empire has the best look yet. In addition, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures – which will release the film on May 16 — has officially released audio of Godzilla’s mighty roar. Look and listen, below.

UPDATE: A visual version of the roar has been released, as well as a tease of the trailer, which hits 10 a.m. February 25. Read More »

Here’s a new poster for Legendary’s latest version of Godzilla. The film opens on May 16, and with luck we’ll see new footage soon, but for the time being this poster is great. Sure, it recaps a moment from the first trailer, but that moment was very quietly impressive, and represents a sequence we’re all curious to see play out on film. Check out the one-sheet below.

There’s another Godzilla movie stomping across the screen this year, and no, it isn’t an Asylum-style knockoff. If anything, it’s the opposite.

Rialto Pictures has announced that it will release a new restoration of the original Godzilla from 1954. By that, they mean the actual original. This is the uncut version released in Japan, not the 1956 American edit that did away with much of the footage in favor of new scenes featuring Raymond Burr.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer and find out when it’s coming to a theater near you.  Read More »

Bryan Cranston roars like Godzilla. Those five words are all you need to know before watching the video below. OK, there’s more, such as that the video is the product of an Entertainment Tonight (sorry, ET Canada) set visit to the production of Gareth Edwards‘ new take on the Japanese monster. But like so many of those TV broadcast set visits, it’s mostly a fluff piece with few details to recommend it.

There’s some behind the scenes footage of the aftermath of a monster attack, and it’s nice to see Sally Hawkins interviewed for a thing like this. There’s even some Breaking Bad footage, in case you forgot the last great thing Cranston was in. But you will get to see Cranston do his best impersonation of Godzilla’s famous roar, and that’s worth a few seconds of your time. Read More »

Russ’ Most Anticipated Films of 2014

2013 was an amazing year for movies. There are still a couple big films from late in the year that I haven’t yet seen (my second cross-country move in the span of a year, left me scrambling to stay current for the year’s final quarter) and yet I’ve still got a list of favorite 2013 films that includes more than fifteen movies. With any luck I can spend the next evenings catching the couple last big ones to get that “best of ’13″ list out the door.

In the meantime, as many are I’m looking forward to 2014. The next year is absolutely packed-out for blockbusters, but there’s a lot of (potentially) good stuff to enjoy in 2014. Below is my own attempt to organize the coming year in movies, based on what we know right now.

Briefly: Here’s the Japanese trailer for next year’s Godzilla, from director Gareth Edwards. This is mostly the same as the trailer debuted yesterday in the US — the effects shots are all the same, for example. But Japan’s own Ken Watanabe gets a better introduction in this trailer. While the domestic trailer showed the actor in a hazmat suit, here he’s given a close-up without any protective covering.

And if you think that seeing a Godzilla trailer preceded by the Toho Studios logo is the only way to go, this is going to be the one to watch. Read More »
