Thn’s Godzilla Countdown #10: All Monsters Attack (1969)

27 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 20 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.

Director: Ishiro Honda

Starring: Tomonori Yazaki, Hideyo Amamoto, Sachio Sakai, Kazuo Suzuki, Kenji Sahara, Machiko Naka, Haruo Nakajima

Plot: A young boy uses his imagination to escape to a world of monsters in order to avoid his real life troubles.

All Monsters Attack is as uneven and bizarre as its many titles suggest. It’s had the titles All Monsters Attack, which doesn’t work as it doesn’t contain all the monsters and the monsters it does contain don’t all attack. Another popular title is Godzilla’S Revenge, and as you can imagine, there is no revenge to be had. The title sometimes given to this film is Minya: Son Of Godzilla, with Godzilla’s »

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 »

The Hobbit in HFingR: An Unexpected Journey To The Glory Of 48fps

14 December 2013 2:00 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

At Twitch we like to write not just about films, but about film. One excellent example, of many, is Matt Brown's regular and incessantly thought-provoking column, "Destroy All Monsters," which tackles myriad cinematic topics that, well, make him twitch. My own background is in engineering, and consequently film technology is a subject that makes me twitch. I also have a deep and decades-long interest in Tolkien; his literary works, his life, and Peter Jackson's film translations. So the introduction of high frame rate (Hfr) shooting and projection in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Th:auj) was a fascinating issue for me, particularly when coming from the hands of Peter Jackson. You see, I cut my teeth on the film-making process by watching every single one of...

Thn’s Godzilla Countdown #8: Son Of Godzilla (1967)

13 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 22 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.

Director: Jun Fukuda

Starring: Akira Kubo, Tadao Takashima, Bibari Maeda, Akihito Hirata, Yoshio Tsuchiya, Kenji Sahara, Kenichiro Maruyama, Seishiro Kuno, Yasuhiko Saijo, Haruo Nakajima

Plot: A journalist arrives on an island to do a story centred around some secret experiments. He soon finds a world of giant insects and a mysterious egg which has been calling to Godzilla.

Just the title will make some fans wretch in disbelief. The huge, ferocious, destructive force that was once Godzilla is about to become a family man. Godzilla has been seen as many things over the years, but it’s kind of hard to imagine the epic sized lizard as an icon for Father’s For Justice. A single dad and proud, »

First Official Look at Godzilla and More!

9 December 2013 4:12 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

As we all wait patiently for the Godzilla trailer to drop tomorrow, USA Today got its claws into the very first official stills from the flick, one of which features Big G himself getting a rocket-sized headache! Check 'em out!

“To me, he’s like a force of nature, like the wrath of God or vengeance for the way we’ve behaved,” Edwards tells the publication. “If this really happened, it would be like Sept. 11. I want it to be epic. I want to get the hairs on the back of your neck up.”

They also confirm that the Monster Island conceit of the 1968 Godzilla flick Destroy All Monsters also plays into Edwards’ film, with its exploration of mankind having to deal with a reality full of huge, deadly behemoths — the director teases that there is more than just Godzilla smashing around.

‘Batman vs. Superman’ Production Update; ‘Mission: Impossible 5′ Filming in 2014

30 October 2013 8:44 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

2015 is going to be the Destroy All Monsters of years for blockbusters and tentpole sequels, with an official lineup that, so far, includes The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: Episode VII, Jurassic World and the 24th James Bond movie – not forgetting Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel (unofficially-titled Batman vs. Superman), of course – in addition to many other titles, be they potential restarts for franchise that are running low on fuel (see: Terminator 5) or the – fingers crossed – thrilling conclusion to a multi-platform cash cow (see: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2).

Production on all the aforementioned films should be underway before the ...

Comic Book Review - Godzilla: Rulers of Earth #3

27 August 2013 7:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks at the third issue of Godzilla: Rulers of Earth...

San Diego has become the latest victim of a monstrous invasion from the sea. With Godzilla recovering from his last destructive battle it's up to a familiar face to fight off the mysterious Destoroyah swarm!

Godzilla: Rulers of Earth rolls on with another really good issue that serves as more of an exposition piece after the first two action-focused parts. The writing is strong, the artwork is ace and it does a great job of not only setting up future issues, but also establishing some lesser known Godzilla adversaries in the process.

Chris Mowry has stated a fair few times that he was focusing his monster selection on the more aquatic creatures from the Godzilla cannon. In order to get a full list though, he has gone to the deepest corners of the Universe to pull »

Godzilla Director Gareth Edwards Already Planning Sequels

12 August 2013 4:28 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Although we’re still 275 days away from the theatrical release of the Godzilla remake, the director is thinking beyond 2014, and discussing a remake of the Toho monster classic Destroy All Monsters.

Gareth Edwards is certainly an optimist. Although he hasn’t finished filming his highly anticipated Godzilla reboot yet—which is due out in 2014—he is so sure that the film will do well, he is already talking about sequel ideas. Musing over Godzilla sequel possibilities, Edwards seems excited about the idea of doing a Destroy All Monsters (1968)reboot, with multiple Monsters fighting it out, in the spirit of Toho's original films.

Edwards says, "With the exception of the 1954 original, I would say my second favorite film is Destroy All Monsters. I just love the idea of a monster island. Having a world with these creatures in it. I find that fascinating and would like to treat that realistically. I »

Godzilla director Gareth Edwards keen on a Destroy All Monsters-style sequel

28 July 2013 1:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The King of the Monsters made quite an impact in San Diego this past weekend as Warner Bros. gave fans in attendance their first look at footage from the upcoming Godzilla remake from director Gareth Edwards (Monsters). Despite the fact it's still some ten months away from release, Godzilla is starting to generate some strong buzz online and talk is already starting to turn towards a potential sequel. Speaking to the press at Comic-Con, Edwards indicated that he'd be keen to expand the kaiju roster in the follow-up for a multi-creature smash 'em up...

Gareth Edwards Teases 'Destroy All Monsters' for the 'Godzilla' Sequel

26 July 2013 9:07 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Bring on the Monsters! One filmmaker we're happy to hear more from via Comic-Con is Godzilla director Gareth Edwards, who came in to tease some kick ass footage from his new take on the monster movie. We live blogged the footage during the Warner Bros panel, but also Edwards spoke to press after and dropped in some big teases/hints as to what we're in for. In one discussion via ScreenRant, Edwards actually mentioned a Godzilla classic - Destroy All Monsters from 1968 where the big lizard fought just about everyone in a monster army. "I think multiple creatures make better movies in terms of the image of Gojira," he says. Edwards at first spoke about the movie he's just wrapping shooting, and talks about the original design of the new Godzilla monster. "In a way we approached it was, imagine in 1954 (when the first Godzilla movie was made), that this »

Gareth Edwards Looking to Destroy All Monsters in Godzilla Sequel

26 July 2013 3:47 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Sorry, what's that? Nope, still can't hear you. The sound of angels singing is far too loud. In what is probably the best damned news of the day (or week), Godzilla director Gareth Edwards recently discussed which direction he'd like to go in for the inevitable sequel.

“With the exception of the 1954 original, I would say my second favorite film is Destroy All Monsters,” Edwards tells Screen Rant. “I just love the idea of a monster island. Having a world with these creatures in it. I find that fascinating and would like to treat that realistically. I wouldn’t want to limit it to one other foe; I think it’s more fun to – this question will come back to haunt me if we ever do a sequel – but I think multiple creatures make better movies in terms of the image of Gojira."

26 July 2013 12:22 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the upcoming reboot of "Godzilla" wrapping up filming ahead of a lengthy post-production period, the film's director Gareth Edwards has already considered at least one rough idea for a potential sequel.

Speaking to the press at Comic-Con, Edwards spoke about his favorite films of the original series and what touches he'd like to include should this franchise go further:

"With the exception of the 1954 original, I would say my second favorite film is 'Destroy All Monsters'. I just love the idea of a monster island. Having a world with these creatures in it.

‘Godzilla’ Reboot Director Talks Creature Design; Sequel Ideas Inspired by ‘Destroy All Monsters’

25 July 2013 2:13 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s been nearly three years since Monsters director Gareth Edwards was announced to helm Legendary Pictures’ modern Godzilla reboot. However, while the writer/director/special effects guru managed to deliver a thought-provoking and beautiful film with Monsters, a big budget Godzilla film comes with a lot of additional challenges (and unforgiving fan expectations).

Despite bringing in just shy of $400 million at the global box office, Roland Emmerich’s 1998 attempt to update the iconic monster with big budget CGI spectacle was mostly panned by critics and moviegoers alike. Fans were especially hard on the radiated iguana design of the 1998 creature and, coupled with Emmerich’s over-the-top third-act horde of baby Godzillas, the film was ...

Do Critics Have the Wrong Idea About ‘Pacific Rim’ Director Guillermo del Toro?

15 July 2013 11:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

I wanted to love “Pacific Rim” more. I suspect that’s a feeling most film critics had. After all, Guillermo del Toro is one of the good guys, a fantasy director with a poet’s soul. And the reviews were downright weird as a result: The critics tied themselves into knots attempting to give del Toro the benefit of the doubt, trying to find those qualities they respect about the director’s vision in a genre they’ve never much cared for.

“In a sense, ‘Pacific Rim’ winds up being not enough of a Guillermo del Toro movie,” opined Entertainment Weekly’s Chris Nashawaty, voicing the sentiment just beneath the surface of so many other reviews. But what is a Guillermo del Toro movie?

It’s downright strange to consider how many of the critics referenced the director’s lower-budget, foreign-language Spanish Civil War allegories “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “The »

Edelstein on Pacific Rim: Is It Surprising That a Robot Movie Is This Inexpressive?

12 July 2013 6:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Mexican-born director Guillermo del Toro evinces so much passion when he talks about genre — horror, fantasy, and sci-fi in film and fiction — that it’s hard to believe he managed to get so little emotion into his giant-robots-versus-giant-monsters epic, Pacific Rim. The movie isn’t bad. It has a couple of exciting scenes (I can’t really remember them, but I remember being excited) and one actor with more preternatural force than the monsters. It’s just weirdly inexpressive. Pacific Rim (a flat title, though a good setup for the inevitable porn version) doesn’t even have the charm of such Toho beanbags as Destroy All Monsters, War of the Gargantuas, or the underappreciated King Kong Escapes — in which Kong battles “MechaKong,” the creation of the dastardly Dr. Who (not the Tardis one). Pacific Rim made me marvel at the technology of movies, but never the magic of them. »

“Pacific Rim”: No Tko, But Still Big Fun

11 July 2013 2:39 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

When I was a kid, the one toy I wanted more than any other was a Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots set. But Santa wouldn’t pony up, and birthdays came and went without a glimpse of those big-ass blue and red robot fighters.

When I finally got the chance to play the game, well… two robots punching each other until one’s head pops off can only be entertaining for so long.

Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim resembles Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em in more ways than one. First, it’s obviously got huge robots beating the crap out of other huge things. And while the IMAX-ready promise of Rim‘s bigger-than-big smackdowns is irresistibly audacious, in actuality the film delivers your standard brand of summer movie chaos, only the heads that pop off are bigger.

Rim takes place in the near future, after a Whitman’s Sampler of massive, »
