Thn’s Godzilla Countdown #9: Destroy All Monsters (1968)

20 December 2013 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

On 16th May 2014, Toho’s greatest monster will return to the big screen in an American reboot. With just 21 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.

Director: Ishiro Honda

Starring: Akira Kubo, Jun Tazaki, Yukiko Kobayashi, Yoshio Tsuchiya, Kyoko Ai, Andrew Hughes, Chotaro Togin, Susumu Kurobe, Haruo Nakajima

Plot: The world’s monsters have all been placed on Monster Land, an island that keeps them contained. But after a strange gas attack, the monsters are used to cause mayhem and destruction.

Take a few seconds to bathe in the glory of that phenomenal title. Destroy All Monsters has such a definite agenda that it’s hard not to be completely sucked in. This really was a big deal in terms of Godzilla films, as it was intended to be the final film of the franchise, but due to its success it breathed new »

Anti-Christmas Movies - Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 (1987)

17 December 2013 5:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sick of Christmas cheer? Then how about some Christmas Fear! Luke Owen's look back at the killer Santa franchise continues with a review of Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2...

Yes, it's the movie with the "Garbage Day!" scene.

If ever there was an argument as to why the Internet is a wonderful place, then Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 is a great example to put forward. Despite flying under the radar of virtually everyone, Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 found new life when a 9-second clip of our main character reading two lines of unreadable dialogue became a hugely watched video on Youtube. Since then, the film has garnered something of a cult reputation and the scene in particular has become a popular meme. Although, the funniest thing about the video is that those two lines are probably the most a lot of people have seen of Silent Night, »

A closer look at the trailer for Gareth Edwards' Godzilla

10 December 2013 1:26 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 11 Dec 2013 - 06:56

The first trailer for Gareth Edwards' Godzilla landed yesterday. We take a closer look at its finer details...

Next year marks the 60th birthday of Godzilla, Japan's most famous giant monster. The star of around 30 increasingly outlandish movies, a 1998 Us remake, a cartoon series and a mountain of merchandise, it's easy to forget that Gojira (to give him his original Japanese name) wasn't conceived as a familiar figure of fun, but a city-levelling creature to be feared.

Director Gareth Edwards stated some time ago that he intended to reinstate Godzilla's power to inspire a sense of fear and awe in his forthcoming reboot, timed to coincide with the grand Kaiju's birthday next year. And it's clear from the first few seconds of the film's new trailer that Edwards has already gone some way towards achieving that.

Like the teaser trailer shown off at Comic-Con two years ago, »

Thn’s Godzilla Countdown #3: King Kong Vs. Godzilla (1962)

8 November 2013 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

On 16th May 2014, Toho’s greatest monster will return to the big screen in an American reboot. With just 27 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.

Director: Ishiro Honda

Starring: Tadao Takashima, Kenji Sahara, Yu Fujiki, Ichiro Arishima, Mie Hama, Akihiko Hirata, Jun Tazaki

Plot: A pharmaceutical company sends an expedition to an island in order to retrieve some special berries. It just so happens that this island is home to a gigantic gorilla named King Kong. Meanwhile, a submarine has problems with a gigantic lizard named Godzilla. Let’S Get Ready To Rumble.

It’s lizard versus ape, America versus Japan! No! It’s King Kong Versus Godzilla. It was time for these two giants to both undertake their third feature film, as the unforgettable gorilla from 1933’s classic King Kong was chosen as an opponent for Godzilla. However, that’s not strictly true. »

Thn’s Godzilla Countdown #2: Godzilla Raids Again (1955)

1 November 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

On 16th May 2014, Toho’s greatest monster will return to the big screen in an American reboot. With just 28 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.

Director: Motoyoshi Oda

Starring: Hiroshi Koizumi, Minoru Chiaki, Setsuko Wakayama, Haruo Nakajima, Takashi Shimura

Plot: After a plane goes down on a mysterious island, a new Godzilla is discovered. Only this time he isn’t alone.

A year after the box-office success of Godzilla came Godzilla Raids Again. But this was an entirely different beast altogether. Literally, it was a brand new Godzilla after the death of the original G in the first film. However, it also changed the entire atmosphere and tone and actually influenced the franchise in more ways than the first effort. In some ways it was a shame, but it’s also a lot of fun. Sure, Godzilla was all seriousness and artistic beauty, »

Godzilla Reboot Updates

23 February 2013 11:41 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Fans of the big green reptile from Japan have some news to whet their appetite for Godzilla updates.  With the release date 16 months away, production is scheduled to begin by the end of March. At least one major cast member has already been signed. Elizabeth Olsen has confirmed her role in the project.

 

 

Last year, Gareth Edwards' Godzilla reboot was being discussed quite a lot after the leaked trailer from Comic-con made its rounds briefly on the web before it was mostly removed from the internet. Plenty of screenshots of Godzilla’s silhouette are still available if you look for them. The evasive trailer shows a ravaged city, with some stunned people standing on the remains of a building in the aftermath of Godzilla's tantrum, followed by the sound of that familiar roar. Fans at Comic-con were excited. The studio then announced that writer Frank Darabont had been »

Special Features - Watching fifteen Godzilla movies or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Monsters

22 February 2013 8:42 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

David Bishop reflects on his 15 movie Godzilla marathon...

If you've been reading fellow Flickering Myth writer Luke Owen’s various articles, you’ll know that Luke, our partner in crime Jon Lipscombe and I undertake a movie marathon each month. For February we chose Godzilla, or, more specifically, the first fifteen Godzilla movies. As there are twenty-nine altogether, we felt that splitting the series into more manageable, bite-sized, pieces was the way to go. Although, as I’ll discuss later on, fifteen films with virtually the same plot (and in some cases the same footage) was perhaps a film or five, too many.

After watching the trailer for Del Toro’s upcoming Kaiju film, Pacific Rim, fifteen Godzilla movies, over the course of twenty-six hours, seemed like a really tantalising idea. However, as the hours ticked by, and the sight of men in rubber suits throwing rocks at each other got more and more tedious, »

Movie Marathon VII - Godzilla (Showa Era)

13 February 2013 1:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen and his movie marathon cohorts takes in a 15 movie Godzilla marathon...

Movie Marathon Meeting - Where 3 guys watch franchise movies one after the others. This marathon is sponsored by curry, beer and a lack of sleep.

To date, our longest marathon was the initial marathon of Friday the 13th at 12 movies which spanned over 24 hours due to travel back and forth from London. But never had we taken on a marathon over 10 movies in one location.

With Pacific Rim heading into cinemas soon and the Godzilla reboot going into production next month, I decided to give my fellow Movie Marathon Meeting co-founders a history lesson in Kaiju cinema by taking in the Showa Era of Godzilla movies (1954 – 1975). The King of the Monsters has featured in 29 movies (including the American one) and we were about to watch the first 15 of them. It’s our longest marathon to date.
