    Arrow Godzilla






    I have not seen one of the old black and white Godzilla movies in years. They used to be on about every weekend when I was growing up.

    Gareth Edwards on Godzilla: "We Want to Stay True to the Fanbase"
    Over at Empire Online, writer/director Gareth Edwards has revealed a little bit more regarding his new take on Godzilla.

    As Edwards explains it, the moment he was first asked about helming the modern updating of Godzilla somehow seemed destined. "When I got the call from my agent," he says, "I was in my bedroom and right in front of me by my DVD player was the 1954 Godzilla. He asked, 'Are you a fan?' And I said, 'Yeah, I'm looking at him right now.' It was incredible.

    "The thing that’s so interesting is that Godzilla has evolved since the original one in the ‘50s," Edwards said, "so there is the opportunity to bring it up to date. But we want to stay true to the fanbase as well and I’m a fan of the Toho films. Everyone's got a very strong opinion about Godzilla and what it should be."

    Is This The First Look at GODZILLA?

    Is This The First Look at GODZILLA?

    Legendary Pictures is rebooting GODZILLA with Gareth Edwards (Monsters) to direct and DavidGoyer (BatmanBegins) is writing the screenplay. But will the powerful monster be CGI or a man in a rubber suit?


    Last time Godzilla got the Hollywood treatment was in 1998 when Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) and SONY created a film that hardly resembled anything that fans were accustomed to. The star, Godzilla looked nothing like he usually does. Is as though they took the name Godzilla and slapped a Jurassic Park look to the film.

    As for the reboot that Legendary Pictures is working on, infamouskidd's source is reporting that creature sculptor, Hector Arce's design of Godzilla is the blueprint. Even more exciting is that Legendary is rumored to be going with a rubber suited Godzilla instead of all CGI creation. How great is that?

    Our source in the know on the new look of Godzilla sent us off in the direction of Hector A. Arce, a creature/fantasy sculptor, who we’ve been told is part of the design team for Legendary’s film, primarily because this version of Godzilla is based on a sculpt he did of Godzilla quite some time ago. Legendary’s roll-out of GODZILLA concept art at Comic-Con back in 2010 was based on his design, and, even with a few tweaks here and there, I’m hearing that the final approved version of Godzilla shouldn’t look that drastically different from this:

    Pictures courtesy of infamouskidd.com




    The bigger question though is – how will Godzilla be brought to the screen? Will it be another CGI creation? Will we be lucky to get an old-school rubber suit? I’m hearing that the plan, as it stands now, is for Godzilla to actually be in the flesh, with someone filling a rubber suit for Godzilla’s return. The head will be controlled by animatronics, and any touch-ups needed for the final film will then fall upon CGI.

    Hannibal Smith in a 1980's swamp monster knock-off maybe?

    I just saw one of those A-Team episodes the other night on BET....
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Legendary Pictures Hires Max Borenstein To Pen Godzilla Remake

    Legendary Pictures Hires Max Borenstein To Pen Godzilla Remake

    Kaiju beware! The King of Monsters is gearing up for a city stomping, tail slapping, atomic breath powered return to the big screen. Details after the jump.

    Source: THR

    Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son) has been tapped to write the planned remake of Godzilla. He currently wrote screenplay for Seventh Son for Legendary which is currently in pre-production. Apparently,the brass at Legendary are so impressed with his work that he's being given the responsibility to kickstart a potential tentpole franchise for the company. Sounds risky to me, seeing as he virtually has no other credits to his name unless you count writing a litany of films that were later re-written by others. Time will tell if that trend of near misses continues here or if this is indeed Mr. Borensstein's big brake.

    Gareth Edwards, the director of the indie sci-fi movie Monsters, is attached to direct the Legendary Pictures film. WarnerBros. will distribute through Legendary.

    David Goyer (TheDarkKnight)worked on the last version of the script. It's currently unclear as to whether this will be a brand new script or simply a reworking of Goyer's efforts.

    KAPOW '12: Gareth Edwards Offers GODZILLA Update; Nacho Vigalondo Talks SUPERCROOKS


    "It's going great and I'm genuinely excited about it. We're just working really hard with Legendary, who have been fantastic. Thomas Tull has just been an absolute pleasure and nothing like the experience they warn you about when you go to Hollywood. I can't say much other than I hope that we'll have some proper news soon. So you won't have to wait too long at all."

    I used to love all the old Godzilla movies. That remake they did in the 90's was treacherous. I hope they do it right this time.

    Legendary Picture's GODZILLA Begins Casting! Starting with Aaron Shang!

    The nuclear titan is finally showing signs of radioactivity from the depths, with the scripting finished and the production date rolling up very soon, casting is now called into play.



    Joining the cast of Legendary Picture's Godzilla is Aaron Shang! Assigned to be a character known as Carl Takahashi within the movie.

    A bit of a background detail upon the actor himself:


    Date of Birth
    5 August 1996, USA

    Beginning in the early 2000's, Aaron has appeared in numerous Chinese, American, and British
    film and TV productions; he is also a descendant of China's most prominent family in entertainment and media. Though best known for his co-starring role in the award-winning Chinese historical drama show "Three Kingdoms", Shang has also appeared in numerous international feature films as supporting or minor characters, while also contributing to several productions as a musician.

    Aaron is the youngest descendant of the prominent Shang family in Chinese media, and is the only member of his generation yet to publicly announce a career in entertainment.

    Avid supporter of international humanitarian efforts. In 2010, Aaron traveled to Southeast Asia with his family to establish education for children in several rural villages.

    Films and Shows:
    Three Kingdoms as Sima Yan
    Good Luck Charlie as Willy Zhang
    Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame as shaizi
    Entourage as Willie Lee
    Gary Unmarried
    Curse of the Golden Flower

    Nominations:
    Best Supporting Actor for Three Kingdoms in 2010 along side Hao Chen
    Award: Hundred Flowers Award


    While he's been seen within these medias, it appears that finding any pictures of the actor are surprisingly slim. Then again since he hasn't publicly announced himself and his career, then its probably intentional for whatever reason the actor has decide it upon.

    With him being cast into GODZILLA(2014), and given his roles being mostly of Supporting Characters from his past workings. Its best to conclude that Aaron Shang will not be the top lead character, or among the top leading characters until stated or announced otherwise by Legendary Picture's themselves. While we may not know his role, he'll most likely be assigned a supporting character role within the film to help flesh out the main character(s). (Whoever he or she, or they may be).

    Well that's all for now, the beast is still moving through the watery void, and radiation levels are steadily building. As 2012 comes to close, continue to keep a look out for this monstrous movie. We might get a few more interesting details before the reign of 2013 begins.

    Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talks Working On GODZILLA, Says Little Green Screen Was Used

    Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talks Working On GODZILLA, Says Little Green Screen Was Used

    In the latest issue of Total Film, actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson discusses filming the upcoming Godzilla reboot from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. He says that working with its crew is more like an independent film than what he's done before. "The Godzilla crew is such a small group of people that it feels more like an independent movie than anything I've ever worked on." He also goes on to reveal that he has done little work with green screen on the monster epic, stating that director Gareth Edwards has filmed "everything" on location, and will add the CGI afterwards. "I've hardly done any green screen stuff for it, he's [Edwards] really clever at doing the special effects. We'll shoot everything raw on location, on the streets, and he's going to put it all around us." Finally, Taylor-Johnson comments on his training for his role as a soldier. "There's an etiquette for guys in the military, so there was training for that, how to hold guns and how to run and to talk to other officers. I love all that."

    Godzilla was recently confirmed to make an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con later next week, as a part of WB/Legendary's panel. With that in mind, hopefully we'll get a trailer soon. Taylor-Johnson will soon be seen in Kick-Ass 2, which hits theaters August 16th. He is also reportedly at the top of Marvel's shortlist to play Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in The Avengers 2, which arrives May 1st, 2015.

    Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. The film is set to hit theaters May 16th, 2014 in 3D.

    GODZILLA EXCLUSIVE: "The Event" at SDCC

    GODZILLA EXCLUSIVE: "The Event" at SDCC

    Interview conducted by and copyright Edward Gross

    Located on J Street between seventh and eighth, the set-up is more about celebrating the history of Godzilla. Once you get past an exterior sign warning about it being a "Radioactive Strike Zone," you're in an area of images, memorabilia and large Godzilla models (none, it should be pointed out, from the new movie). From there, you're ushered into a chamber filled with workers and computer consoles, the monitors of which seem to be tracking....something. Presumably Godzilla. Then warning klaxons sound and you're ushered into an elevator that brings you to floor just below the rooftop. There is rumbling, shaking and it all culminates with the image of Godzilla passing you on the street "outside," turning to peer in the window, failing to see you and moving on - but NOT before giving off the traditional Godzilla roar.

    All in all, pretty cool, as was the opportunity to catch up with Barnaby Lee, a lifelong Godzilla fan and member of the Legendary team who helped pull together this particular exhibit.

    SCIFI MEDIA ZONE: What's your role in all of this?

    BARNABY LEGG: I'm part of the Legendary team. I don't want to suddenly become the figurehead of this; there's been a huge team working on this project.

    SCIFI MEDIA ZONE: Right now, though, they're making you the figurehead.

    BARNABY LEGG: I guess you're right. You can say that I headed up the fan experience here. I'm a passionate Godzilla fan, as everybody is at Legendary, so I've probably taken the lead in terms of trying to make this the most powerful gift possible for the fans.

    SCIFI MEDIA ZONE: Were you in charge of coordinating all of this?

    BARNABY LEGG: To a certain extent, yes. As you can probably tell, something like this is so much more than one person. We've got dozens of people behind the scene making everything run and go. It has brought together just a killer team of artists, designers, collectors, and researchers , all in partnership with Gareth and the guys who are making the Legendary film. We just want to make sure that it's something all of Legendary can feel proud of and, hopefully, fingers crossed, something that is getting the fans excited as well.

    SCIFI MEDIA ZONE: Since you're such a Godzilla fan, I wonder if any of the things on display are from your collection.

    BARNABY LEGG: There are a couple of pieces that are mine. There are a lot of comics in there that are mine and I have specified that I want them back! We reached out to a lot of different people, a lot of different private collectors, doing a lot of buying online, we took a couple of trips to Tokyo to acquire some pieces. It's been a really exciting experience just assembling the ultimate Godzilla treasure trove.

    SCIFI MEDIA ZONE: What is it about Godzilla that appeals to you so strongly and why after all these years do you think the public is still fascinated by him?

    BARNABY LEGG: Great question. I guess I have to answer two ways. Firstly, I think you have to accept that Godzilla is a lot of things to a lot of different people. Some people prefer that ferocious, terrifying, primal monster. Other people love that more whimsical, savior of mankind side to his personality - using the word whimsical tactfully there, because I know some people think that it gets a little silly in places. For me, I've always loved the spirit of the original; that true fear that the character kind of created. In summary, I just think it's the attitude. He just expresses that anger at the world that we all feel, though that is just my personal feeling. I think Godzilla is many things to many different people.

    SCIFI MEDIA ZONE: The last time we had a Godzilla film in the U.S....well, it wasn't really a Godzilla film. Yet people seem excited about this new production.

    BARNABY LEGG: I think he's one of those icons. I think it's something we realized even more in our research; that he is indelible in the same way that King Kong is indelible. Or Batman is indelible. He's so embedded not just in our popular culture, but in our psyches that I don't think he'll ever truly go away. People have their own take on it, but ultimately the icon endures.

    SDCC '13: Gareth Edwards Confirms Atomic Breath For GODZILLA

    SDCC '13: Gareth Edwards Confirms Atomic Breath For GODZILLA

    Shock Till You Drop was able to chat with Gareth Edwards about Godzilla. The began by discussing Frank Darabont's ("Shawshank Redemption") contribution to the script. Gareth praised Frank's ability at character and emotion to the script, making note of one particular scene that when shot, had people watching in tears.

    As for the creature, Gareth was asked if it will have a personality to it. "I always viewed him as a force of nature. He's not like King Kong where there's a personality. Godzilla is definitely a representation of the wrath of nature. But we're in the process of visual FX and I'm starting to see him and his personality is coming through. It's interesting. I'm happy and surprised. We saw early tests and my reaction was like Internet dating or something [laughs], suddenly you're meeting him for the first time and you go, he's real. It's probably going to develop more personality as we go on and my answer might be different when we're done, but he definitely has personality from the icon he is. We've taken it very seriously and the theme is man versus nature and Godzilla is certainly the nature side of it. You can't win that fight. Nature's always going to win and that's what the subtext of our movie is about. He's an anti-hero. I wouldn't describe him as a good guy, but he's not evil personified. He's the punishment we deserve, you know?"

    Of course like most films, there is a plan to make the movie feel more "real" and "gritty" so how does Gareth handle the creatures atomic breath and other fantastical elements. "It was important to me to make it as believable as possible and with all of those elements you've mentioned," Gareth explains. "they're in the film but I tried to put them in the film where they're not so fantastical that you don't believe it. Hopefully, the only big buy the audience has to make - and I believe there can only be one buy - is that giant creatures can exist. Beyond that, we try to make it as realistic as possible.

    Lastly, Gareth says it was really important to have this adaptation feel like a Toho Godzilla and not like the Roland Emmerich version. "There's always this fear when you're working on something with a legacy...who am I?" Edwards continues, "This young-ish British filmmaker handling their property. But they feel we've stayed true to their roots. In the encyclopedias and books you read about Godzilla, there's these different groups - all of the Godzillas in one section and then there's the American [1998] film. I'd love ours to be considered as part of the Toho group.

    Exclusive Godzilla Viral Image Debut - IGN

    IGN's stoked to debut this sweet new viral image below for Legendary and Warner Bros.' upcoming retelling of Godzilla. The photo below shows Nevada?s 'Devil?s Throat' sinkhole and has clues that will lead fans to a URL where they can get glimpses from the new Godzilla trailer, which debuts online in full this Tuesday, December 10, at 10am PST/1pm EST.



    Nevada?s 'Devil?s Throat' sinkhole, thought to have formed in the past decade, is located in the remote wilds of the Mojave Desert - barren lands left scarred from atomic testing. Before being removed from this perimeter by security officers, one civilian leaked a smartphone image of what appears to be a secret quarantine zone established by paramilitary troops and scientific researchers.

    Closer inspection reveals a URL that may contain more details on the mysterious M.U.T.O. group at the epicenter of this incident.

    It seems that this 'classified' site is hiding the first Godzilla trailer from the fans. So if you want to help unlock it, you'll have to "hack" the secretive organization known as M.U.T.O. Here's a taste of what's in store at the M.U.T.O. site:
