Pictures and Legendary Pictures have teamed up with Jakks Pacific to create a "Giant Size" Godzilla toy for director Gareth Edwards' upcoming film and you can check it out below, thanks to MTV . According to the site, "The enormous, articulated figure (12 points total) stands 24" high (measured diagonally), and is 43" long. In addition, his tail swings back and forth, his mouth opens and closes and he comes packaged with the ability to drive Bryan Cranston totally crazy." Opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on May 16, the film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. The movie pits the world's most famous monster against malevolent creatures »

Simon James is a ghost. Friends, family, and coworkers meet his every action with complete indifference. He grimly goes through the motions, hoping for recognition that never comes. All of this changes when James Simon arrives.
Physically, James and Simon are dead ringers. Yet, in temperament, James is everything Simon is not: personable, »

Today, a small movie called Enemy opened in limited release, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and, well…Jake Gyllenhaal. In May, another small flick called The Double comes out, and that one stars Jesse Eisenberg alongside, you guessed it…Jesse Eisenberg. 2014 seems to be the year of the doppelganger, in addition to biblical epics as I mentioned a week or so ago. These are acting showcases through and through, so could Oscar bite for one or both of them? Honestly, I think they’re both too offbeat and weird for Academy attention, so instead of doing specific preview pieces on them and just going through the motions of talking about a likely to be ignored pair of films, I wanted to sort of discuss both of them a bit here in this sort of an article. These could be independent contenders for other awards, so it’s important to give the pair »

On 16th May 2014, Toho’s greatest monster will return to the big screen in an American reboot. With just 9 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.
Director: Kensho Yamashita,
Plot: A being from space, bearing a striking resemblance to Godzilla, is hurtling towards Earth. Meanwhile, the Un have created a new mechanized foe for Godzilla, while a soldier named Yuki is out for revenge.
The title doesn’t exactly instil confidence in the viewer. This time Godzilla is taking on a counterpart from space. Hardly original thinking on Toho’s part, although the original plot for the next film was even more barrel scraping. Luckily they changed that film around. Perhaps it’s the fact that Godzilla Vs. Spacegodzilla followed on from Godzilla fighting his mechanical counterpart in the previous film, »

After showcasing what we hear was nothing short of an absolutely epic clip from Legendary Pictures' upcoming take on Godzilla at the SXSW Film Festival, director Gareth Edwards answered a few questions which have been lingering in the minds of fans.
In terms of the tone of the film... will it be a serious film or a campy affair...
"Probably one of the important things I felt about this film was that the characters at the heart of the story shouldn’t be superheroes," Edwards tells Variety. "They should be everyday relatable people. In the [Steven] Spielberg movies they found that holy grail, the sweet spot of having the epic spectacle, but also relatable and emotional characters. Those events change and affect the characters, but the idea of someone blatantly saving the day becomes quite predictable. The events are real harrowing and present a life-changing scenario, so we just tried to take it really serious. »

Plot details are still scarce, but this footage did reveal a new kaiju in full. Kaiju other than Godzilla had been briefly glimpsed in the previous trailer, but the footage that was shown at SXSW showed both Godzilla and the new, unnamed kaiju in all their glory. Hit the jump for a description of both monsters. The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, and David Strathairn. Godzilla opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 16th. Here’s Styd’s description of the new monster: It's a multi-limbed creature with what look like wings on its back (that would explain the mystery shape we saw cutting through the clouds in the »

Why can’t the astonishing Mondo posters be the actual posters for motion pictures these days? The over produced, heavily Photoshopped nonsense has been shopped around for far too long. This latest poster, advertising the Gareth Edward’s Americanisation of Toho’s Godzilla, is to be given out to the lucky few attending the screening of the original 1954 film, directed by Ishiro Honda, at the SXSW Film Festival. That’s just too much awesomeness to handle, so I’m glad I’m not one those lucky guys. No jealousy here. The poster sees smoke and flames created by Godzilla, creating a visualisation of Godzilla himself.

This restored version presents the original Japanese movie with over 40 minutes of footage not seen in the American release.
