Godzilla Set Video Marks One Year Until Its Release Date
There is no possibly way that I can conceive of that would correctly predict anyone’s feelings about Gareth Edwards’ upcoming Godzilla film. Giant creature features in general are hit or miss with audiences, and Roland Emmerich’s abysmal 1998 remake left such a sour taste in everyone’s mouth that memories of it pervade. But I know that some people are frothing at the mouth for Edwards to right Emmerich’s wrong here, and I’m one of them.
It seems Edwards understands the casual hesitance that people are giving this project, taking a few seconds to drop the above set video to humbly thank fans for having patience. It’s exactly one year before Godzilla’s May 16, 2014 release, and he says they’re about halfway through the shoot. So that means you can expect still images from the teasers of the trailers that Godzilla will rain down upon us. Given co-writer Frank Darabont’s description of the script, the advertising will probably utilize the Internet quite a bit, say, with set videos like this, and maybe some fake news reports featuring Godzilla sightings. Let’s make it a good year, people!
Edwards also mentions that it’s Elizabeth’s Olsen’s first day on the set, but that seeing her would ruin the film for us. I wonder if that means she has a giant lizard bite mark all across her body, or if her body is just completely singed. Not that I’m wishing death to her character, but how else would the film be ruined? Is she playing a motion-captured Godzilla? Dammit, Edwards, we need facts!
