"You know how hard it is for him to try to find work out here with his record now..." Monument Releasing has unveiled a trailer for the new film both written and directed by acclaimed indie actor/filmmaker Mark Webber, titled Flesh and Blood.

Kong: Skull Island 3-D

Kong is back, transformed into a ‘MonsteVerse’ colossus suitable for combat with Kaiju-sized foes. The key inspiration is video games but the day is saved by capable performers in mostly amusing roles. Even though the show treats its fantasy halfway seriously, it’s still an infantile guns ‘n’ monsters romp, embellished with impressive visual effects.

Holy Shit! In Kong: Skull Island, The Ape Is Just The Beginning.

Tonight on ABC's Jimmy KImmel Live, Kong: Skull Island star Tom Hiddleston unveiled the new trailer for the massive monster movie I'm most excited about. There has been a lot of talk about the melding of worlds between Kong and fellow Legendary Pictures products Godzilla and Pacific Rim, and this trailer definitely builds a solid basis for confirmation of that idea. While Pacific Rim has hit numerous snags in the development of its sequel, currently on the backburner, a sequel to Godzilla has been in continuous production ever since the release of Gareth Edwards 2014 film. The film has gained and lost key crew, including directors, but there doesn't seem to have been any question that Big G would return in his new American incarnation....

Film Review: ‘Shin Godzilla’

Film Review: ‘Shin Godzilla’
The Original Gangsta Lizard gets a largely satisfying reboot in “Shin Godzilla,” a surprisingly clever monster mash best described as the “Batman Begins” of Zilla Thrillers. Co-directors Hideaki Anno (the cult-fave “Evangelion” franchise) and Shinji Ishihara (“Attack on Titan”), working from Anno’s genre-respectful yet realpolitik-savvy screenplay, draw basic elements from Ishiro Honda’s original 1954 “Gojira” and its many follow-ups — to the point of including a wink-wink, nudge-nudge reference to Goro Naki, a character who loomed large in two sequels — but update the familiar kaiju mythos to a 21st-century world where the sudden appearance of an immense, fire-breathing reptile in Japan can generate all sorts of inter-agency political wrangling, revive terribly unpleasant memories of the country’s militaristic past, and really, really wreak havoc on the value of the yen in global monetary markets.

In short, Anno and Ishihara operate according to a classic sci-fi game plan: This couldn’t happen.

Godzilla Returns To Japan Before Hollywood Sequel!

After the success of this year’s fantastic Hollywood iteration of Godzilla, Toho studios have been inspired to return the king of the monsters back to his roots. Godzilla managed to rake in $526 million worlwide, with $26 million of that coming straight from Japan. Despite the success, we’ll have to wait until 2018 to see Godzilla 2, as Gareth Edwards journeys to a galaxy far, far away for a Star Wars spin-off feature before returning to the Big G.

Therefore, it seems as though Toho, the studio where Godzilla originated from, will fill that lengthy gap by returning to the franchise themselves. Aiming for a production date of next summer and a release in 2016, the latest Godzilla film from Toho will be the first since 2004’s Godzilla: Final Wars. Toho are taking this so seriously they have set up the Godzilla Strategic Conference, which is joining producers, executives, and directors of the studio,

Toho to Produce New Godzilla for 2016; Will Be First “Domestic” Godzilla Since 2004′s Godzilla: Final Wars

Gareth Edwards' Godzilla reignited interest for the King of the Monsters, and a sequel for the blockbuster was a bit of a no-brainer after the movie debuted to almost $100 million domestic on its opening weekend. While Legendary Pictures' Godzilla 2 isn't due out until June 8, 2018, the beast won't be resting for four years. The creature's owner, Toho Company Ltd., which leased the rights to the character to Legendary, can still make their own Godzilla movies separate from the new universe Legendary set up earlier this summer. Various Japanese publications have revealed that a new, untitled, Japanese-made Godzilla is being readied for release in 2016. Hit the jump for more. August Ragone has compiled several Japanese articles to report that Toho has launched the "Godzilla Conference" (they must have the best lanyards of all-time), "to discuss and decide a wide range of strategies for promoting the Big G, including, but not limited to motion pictures.

Toho producing new Godzilla film for 2016, the first in 12 years

This summer saw the return of the King of the Monsters in Gareth Edwards’ epic Godzilla and a sequel is coming in 2018, but it looks like the Big G is coming back to the big screen sooner than anticipated. The Hollywood Reporter has word that Toho, the studio responsible for creating Godzilla 60 years ago, is producing a new Godzilla film due to the success of the American reboot. There has been no cast or crew announced, but the film is expected to hit in 2016. The film would be the 29th Godzilla film from the company and the first in 12 years since 2004′s Godzilla: Final Wars.

THR quotes a Toho staffer as saying “This is very good timing after the success of the American version this year: if not now, then when? The licensing contract we have with Legendary places no restrictions on us making domestic versions”.

60 Years of Godzilla: A History and Critique of the Greatest Monster Movie Series in Cinema

**Massive spoilers for every Godzilla movie, with the exception of the 2014 reboot, and Mothra follow**

August 6th and 9th, 1945 forever changed the course of history. When the first nuclear bombs were dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, World War II ended, but a new fear was born that dominated the thoughts of all men, women, and children for decades to come. The Cold War, atomic bomb testing, a cartoon turtle telling children to “duck and cover”, and this new technology that had the actual potential to literally end the world changed the perception of what was scary. Art reflects life, so cinema began to capitalize on these fears. Gone were the days of creepy castles, cobwebs, bats, vampires, werewolves, and the other iconic images that ruled genre cinema in film’s earliest decades. Science fiction was larger than ever and giant ants, giant octopi, terror from beyond the stars, and

Wait, You’re Saying the Gareth Edwards Godzilla Wasn’t Perfect?

Gareth Edwards’ “Godzilla” reboot made a bazillion dollars (or something like that), so it’s gotta be pretty good, right? Apparently while it is admittedly pretty good, it’s not perfect, and the folks at Honest Trailers have a couple of bones (or is that MUTOs?) to pick with the Big G. Let’s see what those crazy kids have to say, shall we? (Obviously it goes without saying, right? Massive Spoilers here if you haven’t seen the movie yet.) I get the whole Bryan Cranston thing. And the whole “Wait, when is Godzilla showing up” thing. I don’t really count footage of his fins swimming around the ocean as an appearance, by the way. Plus, the MUTOs were kind of lame. Couldn’t Godzilla have fought cooler looking monsters? The whole Godzilla history was also really, well, stupid. Dude just shows up to fight after half a century?

Original Godzilla Getting 4K Restoration

This news warms my heart like a newly delivered basket of puppies and kittens. The mother of all Kaiju movies, 1954's Godzilla, or Gojira for you purists out there, is getting itself a remastering in Japan for the ages! Even cooler? The sequels are getting some love too!

According to Yahoo! Movies, at a humble Tokyo laboratory the original 1954 black-and-white film is stomping back with a digital makeover that delivers four times the image quality of high definition.

The effort with "4K" technology is carefully removing scratches and discoloration from the films and also unearthing hidden information on the reel-to-reel. Experts say the chemical reactions used to make old movies stored far greater detail than was visible with the limited projection technology of the era, as well as with subsequent digital updates. If all the hidden information of a reel-to-reel is ever brought out, quality would approximate 8K, they say.

Watch Them Fight! Godzilla’s Final Battle Scene Hits the Web…

Gareth Edwards' Godzilla film is making its way to DVD and Blu-ray on September 16th and, today, an extended clip dropped onto the web that's culled from the epic battle between Big G and a Muto. Yes, the one at the end of the movie where all of the action happens. It's a pretty great throw-down that culminates in the reveal of Godzilla's atomic blast.
