I don't know where you two got the idea that that they changed Godzilla's Atomic Breath into Laser Breath . Haven't you seen the original Japanese Godzilla movies? Godzilla always looks like that when he was "charging" his atomic breath before releasing it.

And those are just some early artworks. Things can still change.

I'm cautiously optimistic.

That Frank Darabont wants to preserve Godzilla as a "terrifying force of nature" is particularly good. What I disliked about the last "Giant monster remake", Peter Jackson's King Kong, was that in that movie they neutered the monster to make him "sympathetic". I don't want to see Godzilla skating around New York, but being on the rampage while everyone else panicks and tries to bring him down.

I personally didn't have an issue with CGI monsters.

The first film's flaw isn't that it was CGI. It's flaw was that Zilla was a weak creature who was no threat to anyone. It was terrifying if you are an unarmed civilian, but then so would most real life wild carnivores if you meet them unarmed.

The first film was about "America is Great! Look how weak Japan's symbol of power is as it dies to a few missiles!"

You know what’s ironic? Roland Emmerich’s movie would actually be decent if it didn’t use Godzilla as its title.

To use LN-style long-titles, the movie would be better using this:
My Country did a Nuclear Bomb Testings in the Pacific and Giant Mutated Iguana is the Result!

or the always reliable

My Giant Mutated Iguana can't be This Cute!

No. Since the first movie (in 1950s), Godzilla was already "equipped" with "atomic breath". Furthermore, in subsequent sequels, he can "charge" his atomic breath before releasing it (like particle canons in sci-fi movies). IIRC Godzilla never breathes fire (he's a mutated dinosaur, not a dragon).

Well, its a movie about a giant mutated dinosaur born from nuclear radiation decimating cities with his atomic beam. So, take your pick .

Well, if they wanna make it more relevant, they can set the setting to mid 1950 where humanity dont really have enough technology to counter Kaiju or Godzilla...



@obelisk
Or your title can be...
"My Iguana Pet has Grown and Creates Chaos in Country"

Exactly. It was actually a good monster movie. The creature's design was even cool. But don't call it Godzilla. That just chucks the whole thing down the drain.

Well, Toho got the last laugh in the end.

Although it doesn't always look the same; in the first two it looked more gaseous (0:40)

The thing that was even wackier about that Godzilla? Physically it made less sense than the original Japanese Big-G.


Physically speaking, if it was made of anything remotely close to normal flesh and bone, a Kaiju's knees should explode and it's limbs and muscle should snap every time it took a step. Volume/weight scales up much faster than surface area. So a monster 10 times as big as a dinosaur weighs 100 times as much. The very act of a Kaiju being able to walk at his size implies ludicrous muscle/bone strength well beyond any living organism. Ergo, the very existence of a walking Kaiju implies it'd have unnatural durability.

Zilla being about the same size as Godzilla, but with much wimpier looking legs, and FAR more agility, would physically imply that Zilla would have to be even hardier to not snap his limbs off every time he tried running around or jumping...yet this Zilla is casually killed by missile fire.


Congrats Emmierch. You made a monster movie less realistic than this.

Well considering that Ultraman came out in 1966 and Godzilla Versus Megalon came out in 1973....

Same here, the fact that Darabont is part o fit make me really feel good about the potential.

I sure hope they can pull this off, Godzilla was one of my all time favorite film series growing up and I'd like to see a new movie thats a return to the quality of the older films. I need something good to make that awful american remake a distant memory (the monster was great but everything else, augh!).

Ah, I didn't know that. If that's so, I guess Jet Jaguar is Toho's Ultraman-knockoff .

So...

Hollywood is turning to Japanese TV for ideas, huh?

Lemme know when they're so out of ideas, such that, they siphon stuff out of Bollywood.

It is also because Godzilla's rival from a different studio is a fire-breather.

Hollywood's been trying to spin Japanese TV into gold for a while now, but they haven't really succeeded.

Hollywood lost it's imagination a long time ago. The independent studios on the other hand...
