New Godzilla trailer.
For those of you who want to get a better look at him, the trailer shows him off a bit more and it looks like there's another monster flying around, I hope it fucking Rodan.

Nice to see the disaster in all the right ways.

I know right?

I'm totally geeking out over this movie. It looks so cool. I like the design of Godzilla, he looks and feels powerful and I'm almost certain that other monster we see flying around in the trailer is Rodan or something that is very obviously based off of Rodan.
I was watching the trailer and when that thing was dive bombing out of the sky I said out loud, "That looks like fucking Rodan!"
My favorite shot in the whole trailer is when you see Godzilla's spines coming out of the water and the other one with the wave coming in and those people are running. My third favorite shot is all the planes falling out of the sky, probably because Rodan is up there wrecking their shit.

This is a really good trailer for Godzilla. I love this trailer, I really do.

I feel like this'll be a fun movie to see with a couple guy friends after some pre-drinking.

Or else on dvd and just drinking the whole time
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Take it that you're not that big a fan of Godzilla Tour, or just a really big fan of alcohol.
(With that I just noticed what I assume is a glass of alcohol in your little avatar picture, well look at that.)
I've been watching Godzilla movie sober since I was a kid (mainly because I couldn't have alcohol back then) and I get a lot of enjoyment out of it. To each his own. I wonder what it would be like to see a Godzilla movie drunk though. I wonder if it would make that one part form Godzilla vs Hedorah (those who've seen it will know what I'm talking about) either more enjoyable or less. Or it may just be strange enough to help sober them up. That was a weird movie.

I've always enjoyed Godzilla movies, their just so much fun.

I'm not not a fan of Godzilla, I just think it would make it more fun because you wouldn't care so much about the possible logic flaws and could just enjoy it for the fun of it and the action.

That's fine, enjoy it however you want to man. More power to you.
In the older movies the logic flaws (and some of the other weird stuff that might've been a cultural thing) was kind of part of the fun for me.
Since this seems to be a more darker and serious take on it reminiscent to the 1950s original, I hope that those kind of things will be kept to a minimum. Then again, Pacific Rim had a lot of flaws, but it still makes me happy when I watch it.

I'm fine with that. But the government trying to shut down the only thing that could defend against an advanced alien invasion?

At least the military in the new godzilla movie looks intelligent and capable at doing more than using fighter jets and tanks.

Ehh. I'll think on seeing the new Transformers. I didn't like the last one they did.

But that new Captain America movie, I must see it.

Grimlock, Slug, and three new Dinobots, Strafe, Scorn, and Slash. Yeah, I'm a Transformers nerd...somewhat. (Slag's name had to be changed unfortunately because it happens to be a swear word in the United Kingdom.)

Also, in the original G1 series, the Autobots built the Dinobots, so I'm thinking that they have finally awoken from centuries of slumber in the movies.

While other threads are talking about a bad TMNT trailer. How about we talk about godzilla?

I'm at least always up for talking about Godzilla because I'm super into that stuff, but if people want to talk about the next TMNT movie (be it positive or negative) all over the place and in multiple threads that's their prerogative.

For those who do want to hear some new Godzilla news here's an interview with the director and the cover art for the prequel comic book Godzilla: Awakening. Gareth Edwards comes off as kind of a weird guy, I kind of like him.

Interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=p ... a26RU2PHgE

Comic: http://www.godzilla-movies.com/media/go ... over-1.jpg

I like that they said that they actually haven't been thinking too much about making a sequel yet and are focusing on just making a good single movie.
They do kind of want to do a sequel, but only if people like the first movie so they seem to actually be trying to make this as entertaining as they can on its own.

Also from hearing the other interviews and how they've actually talked to Mr. Del Toro (that part isn't in this interview I think), they sound a little like they also kind of want to do a Pacific Rim crossover if Godzilla does well. They never really said it out loud, but people all over have just been flirting with the idea here and there.

I'm interested on how that would work, if it would take place in an alternate timeline or something else.
I can see Godzilla fighting with and along side Jeagers, one thing about Godzilla lore is that when ever some asshole monster comes from space to take over or destroy the Earth Godzilla kicks its ass because he doesn't like some new lightweight screwing around on his planet. He's territorial like that.

Also the big flying monster from the trailer wasn't Rodan, but I look at it and I can't help but assume that it was a little inspired by Rodan. The film makers have stated that some of the inspiration for the MUTO monsters does come from past Godzilla foes.

If they have a monster that looks a lot like rodan, then say they it isn't rodan, but didn't bother to name it: I'm going to call it rodan.

Its name is, Hokmuto.
