Godzilla: The Planet Eater Review

The ambitious, nihilistic Godzilla anime trilogy comes to a close with its grandest entry that may frustrate some, but feels fitting.

Movies

Godzilla is such a fascinating property because he’s been around for over six decades and is arguably a larger cinematic icon than James Bond. The beast has gone through a number of reinventions over the years, but the most interesting of these facelifts have taken place in more recent years. Filmmakers have gone out of their way to deliver movies that aren’t your standard action-packed Godzilla endeavors.

After some of the more progressive, ambitious takes on the character, such as Shin Godzilla or Gareth Edwards’ reimagining of the franchise, the character is allowed to be more of a cipher that can hint at heavier issues. Yes, Netflix's Godzilla anime trilogy is about giant monsters that engage in all-out combat with the fate of a planet at stake,

China Box Office: ‘L Storm’ Blows to $30 Million Opening

China Box Office: ‘L Storm’ Blows to $30 Million Opening
Hong Kong-made action-thriller “L Storm” topped the Chinese box office with an opening weekend score of $29.4 million. That gave it nearly 60% market share on another quiet weekend in Chinese theaters.

The weekend was characterized by the release of a large number of smaller titles into a window ahead of the Autumn Festival holiday blockbusters at the end of the month. Only “L Storm” made any significant impact, and was the third highest grossing film worldwide, according to ComScore.

The movie is a sequel to 2016 title “S Storm” and involves popular star Louis Koo as an anti-corruption investigator, this time apparently on the wrong side of the law. Directed by David Lam, it is produced by Raymond Wong’s Pegasus Films, and counts Huace Pictures, Wanda, and Er Dong Pictures as mainland Chinese co-producers. Data from Ent Group show it given a wide release, with over 120,000 screenings per day.

Anime Review: Godzilla: City On The Edge of Battle

The anime version of Godzilla continues from where the first part ended, although this time, the non-Godzilla, non-battle aspect seems to be much improved. Let us take things from the beginning though.

Following the events of “Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters“, the Aratrum is unable to contact Haruo and the rest of the forces, after their encounter with the original Godzilla. The Captain orders that if drones do not find survivors by forty-eight hours, the Aratrum will withdraw from Earth. On the surface of the planet, Haruo and his companions make contact with the indigenous Houtua tribe, who, after a “to-know-us-better” that involves much violence, introduce themselves at their full glory, and even agree to help the “crusaders” in their effort to kill Godzilla.

Furthermore, in a search for nanometal instigated by Galu-gu, they discover the remains of Mechagodzilla, who has actually transformed into a city Galu-Gu dubs as “Mechagodzilla City”. Using nanometal technology,

Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle is the reportedly second entry – after its predecessor Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters led the charge into the newly established animated lore – of a new intended trilogy of films for the western hemisphere, yet installed as an anime TV show in Godzilla’s’ native Japan.

Godzilla: City On The Edge Of Battle is Now Available on Netflix

There's a lot of focus on Warner Bros.' Godzilla: King of Monsters since footage is expected to debut at Comic-Con, but Netflix has just released Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle, the sequel to last year's animated feature Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. The new movie picks up where "Planet of the Monsters" left off, with Haruo and his team looking for a way to defeat the largest Godzilla we've seen to date. This time, they put their hope in the abandoned Mechagodzilla facility and have an unexpected encounter the indigenous Houtua tribe.

There's a surprising lack of Godzilla in "Planet of the Monsters," but I'm hoping they address that in the sequel. Either way, those looking for their Godzilla fix that haven't seen the first movie may want to give it a try to see a futuristic take on the Godzilla story. We've included the trailer below,

Toho planning a Godzilla Cinematic Universe

It looks like the MonsterVerse isn’t the only cinematic universe that Godzilla is going to find himself stomping around in, as Toho has announced that it is planning its own Godzilla Universe beginning in 2021.

“The future of the series and its forward development are very conscious of the method of ‘shared universe’,” states Toho’s Keiji Ota to Japanese website Nikkei Style (translated via Godzilla Movies). “Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, etc. could all share a single world much like a Marvel movie where Iron Man and the Hulk can crossover with each other. It is said that each movie can be a possible film production where any one of them could lead a film of their own as the titular character.”

Toho’s last live action Godzilla movie was 2016’s acclaimed Shin Godzilla, while the studio also released the 2017 anime feature Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters and its 2018 sequel

We've got a cool new trailer for Toho's upcoming sequel to Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. The sequel was previously known as Godzilla: The City Mechanized For Final Battle, but the new more Americanized title of the film is Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle.

It's there that they learn that "the key to defeating the King of the Monsters may be Mechagodzilla, a robotic weapon thought to have been lost nearly 20,000 years ago."

Anime Review: Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters

I guess it was due time for Godzilla to get an anime version, and the 32nd film in the franchise provides just that, with the present movie being the first part of an upcoming trilogy, which, this time, implements a rather sci-fi approach.

In the last summer of the 20th century, giant monsters began appearing all over the world and wreaking havoc. A powerful creature called Godzilla appeared which destroyed humans and monsters alike. Two species of aliens, the Exif and the Bilusaludo, arrived with the former attempting to convert humanity to their religion and the latter seeking to emigrate to Earth with promises to defeat Godzilla with Mechagodzilla, should humanity accept them. However, the Bilusaludo were unable to activate Mechagodzilla, which forced the aliens and humanity to abandon Earth and emigrate to Tau Ceti e.

20 years later and 11.9 light years away, the immigrants are still looking for a suitable planet to inhabit,

Notes on Streaming: Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters and The Frozen Dead (Glace) Both Surprise

Also: Jack Black's serio-comic The Polka King and must-see Irish thriller Bad Day for the Cut. Is it just me, or do January's new offerings on streaming services feel ... er, kinda non-essential? Expectations may play a bigger role this month than I had anticipated, but there are pleasures to be enjoyed. From the trailer I saw, I fully expected Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters (aka Godzilla: Monster Planet) to be a dead-serious animated affair with a new take on Godzilla. Released this past weekend on Netflix as a 90-minute movie, the first third of the story is set in outer space on a ship that has been traveling for 20 years and is rapidly running out of resources. The premise is that Godzilla and...
