Don't know if there's already been a thread about this.
Don't if this belongs here or /jp/
I just know I'm fucking excited.
Can we talk about how fucked up this movie is going to be?
Hopefully it will be better than the last one.
Zilla 2014 was shit. Great first half, complete turd second half. You know your movie is poorly made when the audience LAUGHS at the first appearance of the 'hero' and booed when the 'villains' were killed.
>You know your movie is poorly made when the audience LAUGHS at the first appearance of the 'hero' and booed when the 'villains' were killed.
you say that like this happened universally. wtf are you talking about?
>getting excited for scabzilla
I'm a huge Godzilla fan too but this looks like a trainwreck already. I'm just here for the memes.
When I saw it that's what the audience did. There was actually really heavy booing when Captain Charisma military son blew up the eggs.
I guess the people I was in the theater with weren't retarded and understood the MUTOs were doing nothing wrong. Also Zilla's first appearance in the movie is terrible, he comes close to breaking the 4th wall.
I'm just happy they're going for a way more classic design, apart from the scars.
I've never seen anything he's done but I feel like no fun would still be better than the flying, dancing, waves at children godzilla of the 70s. I Mean isn't that why they made the heisei godzilla?
>and is always on the verge if mental breakdown
This is true. That's the reason he passed on Evangelion 4.0 to make this instead. Was having another reminder that Ikuhara would never be his during 3.0's production, has a breakdown, does Godzilla to vent off some psychological steam.
>I've never seen anything he's done
This will either be a hell-crazed mindfuck of a movie, or complete hokey disaster.
He's a very hit and miss director, but when he hits, he hits hard.
>mfw Godzilla was originally a horror film and allegory for Hiroshima
I like the campy Showa films too but fuck, I wish people would stop acting like dark, serious Godzilla films are something completely new.
It's been a while since we've had a good, dark Godzilla movie.
Also, rumors are saying Shin Goji's scars are temporary. He's regenerating from the oxygen destroyer.
>regenerating from OD
can we move a way from the whole "everything new is a direct sequel to 54" idea? It's a great movie, but literally 80% of all new continuities start as "we ignore everything but 54". It's time to let go
YOU FUCKING IDIOT, DON'T FUCKING SPOIL 2 OF THE BIGGEST MOMENTS OUT OF CONTEXT IN THE ENTIRE SERIES/FILM.
PLEASE DON'T WATCH THOSE CLIPS IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN EVANGELION.
I'd normally agree with you but I'm holding judgement until we know the plot.
I'm probably in the minority that wants an art film godzilla. I don't think this will be that but I'm holding out hope.
Me too but the Japs have tendency to make things edgy for the sake of edge.
I want it to mean something. I want this to be about the fukushima disaster or the real looming threat of world war 3 and not just destruction porn with titanzilla.
I think pretty much everyone does, at least when it became hip and cool to like the first movie. That's why they were pushing how "dark" the '14 Godzilla was going to be before it was revealed to be crap.
I'm not talking about Japan of couse, I don't know what they want from godzilla. But everything seems to suggest that they're in the mood for a dark take on it too. I think the American godzilla was relatively successful there?
This movie comes out in japan this summer but how are we in the west supposed to see it?
How long does it normally take one of these movies to get translated?
I'm not entirely sure if Warner has the distributing rights in the west for Godzilla stuff, and I think Toho was asking around at some film festival last fall while showing off test footage to potential distributors
>Warner distributes it
>literal who distributes it with little to no marketing
>limited theater run with the above
>delayed release to America and/or limted theater run
or, worst case scenario
>not released in the west, but like with EVA 3.0 some kind anons slap some subs on a camrip and share
We might even just get a home-video release, but I feel that Godzilla still has enough of a presence to justify at least a limited run
There have been a lot of Japanese movies getting short weekend releases in the US lately. Last big one was Attack on Titan. I'm optimistic that it won't be too hard to see in theaters.
Eva 3.0 actually had a limited theatrical run in the US too. In some multiplex-level theaters too, not just the smaller places you'd expect to show something like that. It wasn't concurrent with the domestic release at all, but hey
