Look out, Comic Con! It's Godzilla!

06.29.2012

Gojira, or Godzilla as he is known to American audiences, was the unfortunate victim of an awful 1998 remake. Since then he has still had success in Japanese films while here in the States we waited for the GODZILLA movie we truly deserve.

The busy folks over at Latino Review have learned that not only is the long in development reboot from Legendary Pictures and director Gareth Edwards (MONSTERS) moving forward but the Thunder Lizard himself will be making a very special appearance at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con!

Legendary Pictures was already going to have a significant presentation for Guillermo Del Toro's PACIFIC RIM and now looks to be doubling down on the big monsters. Latino Review did not get into specifics regarding what the presentation would be, only hinting that it would involve both video and audio.

GODZILLA is a franchise that should have been a slam dunk for an Americanized remake, but Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich fumbled the ball by making the monster a glorified dinosaur. Plus casting Matthew Broderick in the lead role did not help matters. Here is hoping the screenplay by David Goyer and Max Borenstein brings back the monster to his iconic glory.

This sounds cool, but I actually liked the Godzilla remake with Broderick. Am I the only one?

Wow that video truly wants me to check out the whole franchise. I've never seen anyones, but only the last version. Well I liked it as a kid, I can see why people hate it and now from that tribute video I'm hoping this turns out epic

I hope this reboot and Pacific Rim combine to start an explosive revival for big-budget, well-made kaiju films.

Yayyyy

As a kid I liked the 1998 one, then I saw it a few times after still cool but recently watching it again its not good at all. Change the name and all and it could be cool. I am hoping for a dark gritty godzilla movie. Make it scary again too :)

David S. Goyer writing? Could be great.
The funniest thing about the Matthew Broderick version? A bunch of helicopters are flying around, and they can't find Godzilla because....he's hiding behind a building.

You give Emmerich too much credit

Except they didn't make G a "glorified dinosaur"....they made him an egg-laying asexual iguana with vicious tuna breath that runs away from helicopters.

*shudders*

All I ask from this movie is that they put the "God" back in Godzilla. An unstoppable force of nature that to quote Goodfellas "may move slow, but thats only because he didn't have to move for anybody."
