With no warning and no sign of salvation, Godzilla is plummeted to the deepest, darkest bowels of the infernal kingdom.

New 'Godzilla' Movie Coming in 2016 from Toho Japan

New 'Godzilla' Movie Coming in 2016 from Toho Japan
Following the success of the stateside Godzilla reboot, which hit theaters this summer, Toho Japan is planning to bring back their iconic franchise with a brand new movie in 2016. This will be the first Toho produced Godzilla movie since 2004's Final Wars. It will mark the 29th Godzilla movie for the studio.

The Gareth Edwards directed Godzilla took in $500 million worldwide, and opened #1 in Japan. About the monster returning to its country of origin, a Toho staff member stated:

"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."

There is no director, cast or budget set yet for the new Godzilla (Toho). Production is set to begin this summer, and the film will be released worldwide. Toho won't be able to match the $200 million budget of the Hollywood blockbuster,

DVD Review – Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla, 2014

Directed by Gareth Edwards

Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston, Carson Bolde, Sally Hawkins, Juliette Binoche and David Strathairn

Synopsis:

The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Having torn up movie screens for 60 years, Godzilla is now a staple part of pop culture and an icon of the giant movie genre. Sadly however, he is perhaps best known outside of his homeland of Japan for the abysmal 1998 Roland Emmerich attempt to Westernise the King of the Monsters. Directed by a man who had no interest in the character or history, Emmerich’s Godzilla was more or less a rubbish remake of The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms rather than a new beginning for The Big G. Thankfully, the reigns of the franchise have been handed to British director Gareth Edwards, a man who

Movie Review: Godzilla

Ever since he first rose out of the ocean on movie screens sixty years ago, Godzilla has achieved a level of pop culture ubiquity shared by few other fictional characters. Much like Count Dracula, the Frankenstein monster, Sherlock Holmes, and King Kong, you can say Godzilla’s name to virtually anyone in the world and they will know who you’re talking about, even if they’ve never seen a single Godzilla movie. But the franchise has been dormant since the 50th anniversary film Godzilla: Final Wars (2004). Now we have a new take on the King of Monsters – brought to us by Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures, and British filmmaker Gareth Edwards, who directed the acclaimed sci-fi indie Monsters (2010) – and it’s awesome. Godzilla is a true epic, a welcome return to movies for the character, and a perfect way to celebrate the big guy’s diamond jubilee.

In 1954, a

Second Opinion – Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla, 2014.

Directed by Gareth Edwards

Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Cj Adams, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Richard T. Jones, Victor Rasuk, Carson Bolde and Bryan Cranston.

Synopsis:

The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

This latest incarnation of Godzilla may well do a lot of things right if you’re a fan of kaiju monster flicks and have ‘always wanted’ to see what would happen if the legendary creature went up against mankind and other monsters with a mega production budget behind it. If, however, the sight of this is not enough and, like me, you want at least some semblance of character to go with your action, then Godzilla will strike you as a massive bore. A Godzilla-sized bore, wreaking havoc and destruction on your patience whilst stomping all over your expectations.

Film Review: Hollywood’s ‘Godzilla’ Misses, Mocks Ishirô Honda’s Main Warning Message

Chicago – Except for the clear purpose of cashing in on yet another “Godzilla” remake, everything is happening for no reason. Worst of all, what is ensuing misses and even mocks the reason why Ishirô Honda originated 1954’s “Godzilla” in the first place.

Since then, times have dramatically changed and blockbuster Hollywood movies have a new boss to answer to: the box office. Still, we can’t forgive a film that focuses on CGI and big-city destruction while assuming we don’t care about a story and the honesty of where that plot needs to have its roots. The original “Godzilla” is an understandable outpouring from Japan when it was suffering in real life. America isn’t traumatized here.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

It’s insulting to audiences to think the eye candy fed to the two holes above our nose is more important than the brain that sits atop our head. Our minds have to be equally satisfied.

'Godzilla' Earns Best Opening Day of 2014 with $38.5 Million

'Godzilla' Earns Best Opening Day of 2014 with $38.5 Million
Godzilla is the king of summer movie blockbusters! For a hot minute, anyway. Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are claiming the iconic giant lizard has pulled in the biggest opening day of the year with an estimated $38.5 million. This beats Captain America: The Winter Soldier, who pulled in $36.9 million this past April.

Godzilla is estimated to earn a little over $98 million over the course of its three day weekend, and it may even make it to the $100 million mark. Captain America: The Winter Soldier took in $95 million over the course of its three day weekend.

Godzilla's reign as the top opener of 2014 may be short lived, though. X-Men: Days of Future Past opens this coming weekend, May 23, for the Memorial Day holiday and is expected to pull in over $100 million. The film is already being received well by both critics and early audiences.

Godzilla took in $6.2 million just at IMAX theaters alone,

'Godzilla' Earns $9.3 Million from Thursday Night Screenings

'Godzilla' Earns $9.3 Million from Thursday Night Screenings
Godzilla stomped into theaters nationwide for preview screenings last night, taking in an estimated $9.3 million. That total includes $2.1 million from IMAX screenings alone.

Director Gareth Edwards' action-thriller beat out the $8.7 million Thursday night haul of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which earned $91.6 million during its opening weekend frame on May 2. However, it fell just short of Captain America: The Winter Soldier's $10.2 million Thursday tally, en route to a $95 million opening weekend, which currently stands as the biggest opening weekend gross of 2014.

The movie, which stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche and David Strathairn, is considered to be more front-loaded than both The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is why it's currently tracking to take in between $70 million and $80 million by most box office prognosticators. However, given the glowing reviews it has received thus far, it's possible that positive word-of-mouth

Godzilla Review: The King Has Returned

For many in my generation, Godzilla represents much more than the rampant destruction of cities worldwide, and allegories of man versus nature and the dangers of atomic/nuclear testing/bombs. My Godzilla has always been a hero. When I grew up, The King of Monsters was on my TV battling giant moths, and three headed dragons, and smog monsters, and even mechanical versions of himself. Godzilla was a superhero to me, and because the content was so cheap at the time, my local NBC affiliate could show his adventures daily in a Monster Theater type of show and I ate it all up.

I bring this up, because Gareth Edwards' Godzilla is a grand and glorious callback to those days of watching Godzilla be a hero. I was instantly taken back to my childhood while watching this, and every time The King of Monsters was on screen, my body erupted in goosebumps.

Review: Godzilla (Heather’s Take)

Considering his first cinematic excursion with oversized creatures quickly became one of my favorite genre films of the last ten years, I knew if anyone was going to be up to the gargantuan task of breathing new life into the “King of the Monsters,” British filmmaker & Monsters helmer Gareth Edwards absolutely would be the right guy for the job.

The reality is that for a film like Godzilla, what we’re really showing up for are these giant cinematic beasts- not the humans- and that’s truly the one aspect of the movie Edwards nails to absolute perfection, making it easy dismiss all those minor flaws and get caught up in all the awesomeness of the monsters and their paths of destruction throughout the film. This Godzilla is The perfect celebration of everyone’s favorite giant radioactive beastie and should undoubtedly deliver pretty much what any long-time fan could want
