BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
We recently heard rumblings that two of cinemas greatest monsters, King Kong and Godzilla, might me on the big screen, but there is one possibly one insurmountable obstacle no one foresaw.
Two years ago, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. decided to end their eight year partnership, with the former creating a new deal with the folks over at Universal Pictures. Now, however, it looks like they may be bringing Kong: Skull Island back to WB. Why? Because they're interested in the idea of a potential crossover with Godzilla.
Pacific Rim 2 stomps through theaters in 2017, it’s going to be massive. However, if director and mastermind Guillermo del Toro has his way, the franchise will get even bigger: he wants to bring Godzilla into the fold.
Last year’s big Godzilla revival currently exists as one of the biggest hits of Bryan Cranston’s career, and the actor has spoken out about both his appreciation of the movie and all of its success. As it turns out, however, he does have one major issue with the film – and that’s the fact that his character is killed off so early in the movie.
How does one top something like Godzilla? The epic reboot about the famed Toho movie monster blew us out of the water with the titular beast battling against two other gargantuan threats. According to writer Max Borenstein, this can be topped with Godzilla 2.
If you can’t wait to see Anne Hathaway go up against a monster that closely resembles Godzilla in Colossal, then prepare yourself for some bad news, because the production company behind the real Godzilla has started a legal battle with the intriguing flick.
With the possibility of a franchise in play, killing Godzilla at the end of Godzilla makes no sense. Which is why the beast gets up off the proverbial mat in the closing minutes of this movie, and swims back to his lair to heal. He’ll live to fight another day. Because of Star Wars: Rogue One, however, that “day” probably won’t come as quickly as fans had hoped.
If the local Holiday Inn isn't generally frightening enough for you, you might want to check out this epic, Godzilla-themed hotel in Japan.
In the current age of sequels, remakes and reboots, it shouldn't be surprising to learn the Toho Studio announced the Godzilla franchise will get yet another installment. This is not related to the Gareth Edwards remake that just hit theaters back in 2014, but is rather set to run concurrently alongside the British filmmaker's franchise.
This supercut of 2014's best shots of cinematography might just leave you with stars in your eyes. Check out what one editor thought was the best of the best online.
As we’ve been saying all week, 2014 was truly a great year for movies. The entire calendar was filled up with both memorable and surprising features, from indies to blockbusters, and these titles were made up of some incredible cinematic moments that we will not be soon forgetting.
As the most-used website on the internet, Google has a ton of access to information about our society, and by analyzing their numbers can come up with lists of the biggest trends during a certain amount of time. Today they have revealed the top 10 searches when it comes to movies in 2014 – and the results they came up with are pretty surprising.
As I noted shortly after its release this past May, Gareth Edwards' Godzilla has a lot of trouble in the female character department. While the male leads Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe got to play solid characters and had an active role in the story, Juliette Binoche was killed off almost instantly; Elizabeth Olsen did little more than worry about her husband and look up in terror; and Sally Hawkins just mutely followed Watanabe around the whole time.
Treating Godzilla like a punching bag has become a national pastime in movie geekdom since Gareth Edwards released the film, with a few of the usual suspects rehashing the same complaints. Which is fine.
Legendary Pictures has sealed a deal, signing Max Borenstein to write the Godzilla sequel. Borenstein made his name by penning the 2014 Godzilla, which took the iconic movie monster on a world-trekking (or world-wrecking) adventure to battle two massive, merciless MUTOs.
One eagle-eyed film viewer has spotted a Breaking Bad Easter egg hidden amongst the opening title sequence to Gareth Edwards’ 2014 blockbuster, Godzilla. Of course, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to fans of the film and show, as both of these entities featured the acting efforts of Bryan Cranston.
Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla successfully rebooted the long-dormant monster franchise, wiping away the tainted memory of the Roland Emmerich effort and returning the King of the Monsters to his rightful place atop the creature food chain.
This week's releases include a giant monster, a slew of warriors, a bachelor and backelorette party, and a headless horseman. Find out which sets are worth the price tag and which aren't, here.
Director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla should have been one of the best films of the 2014 summer blockbuster season. I want to stress the “should have” part there, because while it was certainly enjoyable in spots, it’s hard to look at Edwards’ giant monster movie and not see a whole lot of missed potential. This video will show you where it went wrong.
After teasing the conflict of Godzilla and the MUTOs for most of the movie's runtime, the finale hit hard and spectacularly in the heart of San Francisco. Now you can revel in the blow-by-blow action, as Warner Bros has released the full sequence online ahead of its DVD release.
