Legendary says new Godzilla to be more like the old Godzilla

09.22.2010

I keep forgetting that Legendary Pictures is seriously remaking Godzilla, as it's a property that I suspect doesn't exactly have a huge fanbase these days. But the studio is hoping for renewed interest in the towering monster, the subject of an infinite number of movies in the last fifty years in Japan, and one particularly awful American version in 1998.

But producer Brian Rodgers says they've learned from Roland Emmerich's disaster, and will make the monster more true to its roots.

"Legendary did not want to make the same decisions Sony did," he says. Specifically, we're not going to see "a more iguana-like Godzilla laying eggs".

"I think I can safely say that there'll be other monsters that Godzilla will fight. That's what the fanbase wants to see. Not having that in the Sony version was a drawback. Godzilla fighting the US army was not in the spirit of the character."

More monsters! I can get behind that, especially if they're designed in the vein of new Godzilla, as seen above. What? We watch giant robots fight each other every two years with TRANSFORMERS, why not giant monsters? I'll give it a go.

Extra Tidbit: Or we could just have monsters FIGHT giant robots if they introduce Mechagodzilla as the villain.

Go Go Godzilla

I've been a huge Godzilla fan since I was a kid and have all the films. Any reboot would be better than the piece of crap 1998 version. I'd like to see what could be done with a CGI Godzilla. And of course this will probably be in 3D.

I respect Sony's decision to at least TRY and bring Godzilla into the 21st century and not make him a lame dude in a rubber suit, even if the movie did suck.

The suit-shit was acceptable for it's day - but that is NOT what I want to see with today's technology and quite frankly my higher expectations when it comes to movies. I'm not a 10 year old who won't give a shit, and even today's 10 year olds will just scratch their heads and wonder what's going on if they go the rubber suit

Please keep Godzilla fighting other monsters and such, keep the cheese going to a degree, but make it actually WATCHABLE and EXCITING please. "Man Stumbling Into Things Blindly" is not exciting, and hardly makes for a decent 20 second YouTube video.

I want a dark and creepy movie with a menacing Man eating Godzilla who isn't eating fish and chasing around Ferris Bueller.

I hope Godzilla is scary as hell and that the movie is dark as possible.

Seems like Roland and the word disaster go hand in hand, and im not talking about his movies either. Seriously Im trying to think of a great flick this guy has made and cant.

I can't say that I'm a big fan of him, but both Stargate and The Patriot were good movies for what they were, and I don't know about anyone else but I have a soft spot for Independence Day.

ROPE AROUND MY NECK

I grew up watching the 70s version, and always loved those --- But in 1998 I almost wrapped rope around my neck after watching that disaster! thanks goodness a friend talked me down -- in that someday someone can make a real Godzilla movies, here in the USA!

To me they should go in the direction Cloverfield did. Not through the eyes of a camera though. Just a real raw, on the ground approach. Make it real subjective to show the scale of the battles. Less "God's eye view". Anymore I don't think audiences are sucked in by watching CGI characters fight from every imaginable angle. we want to be in the hot seat; seeing it from where we would if we were really there.

I'm absolutely with you here. Bringing the camera out further in the so called "God's eye view" that you mentioned just doesn't do justice to the size and scope of these creatures. It just makes them feel like any other sized being.

Keep it from the human perspective, just not the first person perspective - I agree with you.
