An epic rebirth to Toho's iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world's most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Perfect director for this project. They couldn't have picked a better one.

I have this strange feeling we will only get Cloverfield style looks at the monsters. I don't think this will be anything like Pacific Rim in regards to the monster fighting. Instead of the fighting being the center of the action I'm sure we will be getting a POV from the ground or sky somewhere.

Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are going to kick Godzilla's a** to end the film, right?
Amazing512 - 4/18/2014, 5:44 AM
Ckal- Just saw Pacific Rim. I was really digging it in the beginning but it ultimately lost me. Still decent though

McGee - 4/18/2014, 6:20 AM
I'll never understand why some of you guys didn't like Pacific Shit.
McGee - 4/18/2014, 6:21 AM
It was the shit, because it was shit.

Everything I've seen so far looks amazing. I can't wait for this to come out.
CaptainAmerica31 - 4/18/2014, 7:20 AM
He needs to do a CBM
Prime - 4/18/2014, 7:24 AM
I wanna see Godzilla punch MUTO...
GUNSMITH - 4/18/2014, 7:30 AM
ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN THE AMERICANIZED BUFF IGUANA GODZILLA..MY GAWD MAN WHAT WAS THAT POOPER OF A FILM?
Turk - 4/18/2014, 7:30 AM
I guess the people who are excited for this forgot this is a WB movie.
soforizo - 4/18/2014, 7:30 AM
If this plays out as expected, I want Gareth to direct a DC movie. Black Adam?
Shroombeast - 4/18/2014, 7:33 AM
Pacific Rim was amazing. But this is going to be different. Judging by the trailers, this may well be to Godzilla what The Dark Knight was to Batman.
Starfox - 4/18/2014, 7:34 AM
When People Talk About Pacific Rim.. They Are Not Talking About The Script or Dialogue. Its a Great Movie: Entertaining, Fun and Thrilling. I have yet to understand why people have so many issues with it.
soforizo - 4/18/2014, 7:34 AM
@Turk I'm excited for this because it's a WB movie. The last few years they've taken in the idea of keep things closer to what could happen and its consequences, instead of fairy tale endings.
soforizo - 4/18/2014, 7:34 AM
@Starfox

I agree. It was shitty in terms of script, dialogue and corny as well, but fun.
Starfox - 4/18/2014, 7:57 AM
@soforizo

Yeah, I mean it could have been a lot better if the script was well-written and it had better dialogue and story set up; but it still turned out pretty Good. I really would like to see Del Toro direct a CBM or maybe a DBZ film.
Nomis1800 - 4/18/2014, 8:09 AM
He got fat. The director.
DestroyallTrolls - 4/18/2014, 8:12 AM
what the [frick] happened to the comments???
Is my computer just Trolling me!!!
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/18/2014, 8:12 AM
Godzilla need to cut down on the pizza.
DestroyallTrolls - 4/18/2014, 8:12 AM
Oh my God....my computer WAS just trolling me!
Starfox - 4/18/2014, 8:13 AM
@DestroyallTrolls Huh?
DestroyallTrolls - 4/18/2014, 8:15 AM
@Abary
Godzilla has always been a bit porkie. It's part of his undeniable charm, like Cipher's drinking or Gusto's....ya know, Gusto stuff.
DestroyallTrolls - 4/18/2014, 8:16 AM
@Starfox...my computer was [frick]ing with me man, and I thought CBM had another of those weird breakdowns were nothing works on the page...
KneelBeforeZod596 - 4/18/2014, 8:35 AM
As a fan of literally all iterations of Godzilla, I never understood the hate for Godzilla 98. Standard action movie plotting and some really incredible special effects for the time. I also really loved the idea of a faster Godzilla.

KneelBeforeZod596 - 4/18/2014, 8:38 AM
This is going to be an incredible movie. Between the scale of Godzilla, the dark tone, and the incredible cast, I cannot wait for this.
KneelBeforeZod596 - 4/18/2014, 8:39 AM
@DestroyAllTrolls the Heisei Godzilla was extremely porkie.
