    Legendary Pictures Film Revitalizes Franchise, Gives Fans What They’ve Been Waiting For Author: Jim Cirronella Source: Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures Official Site: Godzillamovie.com SPOILER WARNING: This article contains plot details and images from an upcoming movie. Released in 2010, Gareth Edwards’ feature film debut, MONSTERS, contained fresh concepts not often associated with giant monster movies, as well as a scope that belied its micro-budget and fiercely independent origins. Subsequently, the film has sharply divided viewers into two camps: those who have embraced its emphasis on the human characters as they struggle within the context of a monster-infested environment, and those who despise its decidedly-measured approach due to feeling short-changed on monster action. And therein lies the conundrum of bringing a new Godzilla to life for modern audiences: in an era where the push of a button can make almost anybody a

    Author: Richard Pusateri Source: Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures Official Site: Godzillamovie.com SPOILER WARNING: This article contains plot details and images from an upcoming movie. Gareth Edwards’ 2014 GODZILLA has at least one unintended consequence; it reinforces my belief that Ishiro Honda’s 1954 GODZILLA was an incredibly stunning artistic achievement. After six decades of technological development, the finest cinematic artisans and craftsmen in the business and an incomprehensibly larger budget, Edwards’ film does not surpass the original Japanese movie’s terrifying commentary. Mr. Honda’s 1954 GODZILLA has a cohesively clear story and artistic statement that still gets me after a few hundred viewings over five decades. This year’s GODZILLA is a fine movie that I enjoyed more than many other recent special effects extravaganzas. In no way do I mean to diminish Edwards’ achievement here when I pledge allegiance to Mr. Honda’s

    Movie Stars and Other Celebrities Walk Black and Red Carpet for Media Army Author: Richard Pusateri Source: Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures Official Site: Godzillamovie.com GODZILLA received a giant media event premiere Thursday night at the Dolby Theater on Hollywood Boulevard that was mostly attended by media and movie industry insiders. The press corps appeared to number in the several hundred with an equal number of Warner Bros staffers and security. The only thing missing were fans of the movie. Most of the people I saw on the north side of Hollywood Boulevard appeared to be fans of the actors and other celebrities, tourists, amateur paparazzi and the professional autograph hunters who attend every red carpet event. Ten years earlier, the nearby Chinese Theater was the site of the GODZILLA: FINAL WARS premiere and the ceremony unveiling Godzilla’s Star on the Hollywood Walk

    Filmmakers Acknowledge Classic Movie Monsters as Inspiration for New GODZILLA Author: Jim Cirronella Source: Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures Official Site: Godzillamovie.com SPOILER WARNING: This article contains plot details from an upcoming movie. On the morning of Sunday, May 4th in New York City, Warner Bros heralded the return of Godzilla by hosting a press junket in which the upcoming film’s director, producer and leading cast met with journalists to answer questions in a bevy of roundtable interviews. It was big and terrible, and judging by the debris and rubble adorning the hallway at the JW Marriott Essex House near Central Park, the King of Monsters was back in a bigger way than ever thought possible. Affable, young director Gareth Edwards joked about all the attention he’d been receiving: “They keep putting me in rooms, and it’s always full of microphones.”

    Director Gareth Edwards and Producer Thomas Tull Answer Questions after 3D IMAX Presentation Author: Richard Pusateri Source: Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures Official Site: Godzillamovie.com Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures shifted promotion of GODZILLA into high gear the first week in May. A series of press screenings began on May 1, with an event at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. The production notes along with more images and video clips were also made public during the first few days of May. The May 1 Chinese Theater screening was especially noteworthy as it was the first IMAX presentation of the 3D movie. The presentation also featured a question and answer session with director Gareth Edwards and producer Thomas Tull. (Attendees of the screening were asked not to publish any description, evaluation or judgment of the movie itself, so watch SciFi Japan after May 10 for reviews.)
