WTF, no japanese actor for GODZILLA? I thought it was supposed to be close to the 1950s original movies?
Durango95 - 3/18/2013, 11:09 AM
Less focus on the humans,more focus on big monsters kicking each others asses!
GAH - 3/18/2013, 12:30 PM
That sounds cool! Hope the movie is just called simply GODZILLA.

ps. watched the second one the other night.
Not a complete failure. But the robot fights where a mess.
Couldn't see a god damn thing.

Nautilus will not be part of the final title. It's just used yo help supress people figuring out what it really is. The Dark Knight was given the cover-up title of Rory's First Kiss.

But maybe Godzilla will fight a giant nautilus at some point? ; ]

Ket Watanabe is Japanese. : ]
