It looks like Japanese writing in that picture, I wonder if they'll tie this in with that earthquake and tsunami and the damage to nuclear plants.

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

I'm still hoping that this movie won't be a complete reboot, but will acknowledge the events of the original 1954 film, the way virtually all other Godzilla movies have done. (Even the '98 American version implied that the Japanese had prior experience with a giant reptilian monster named Gojira.) So I don't really want a new origin story for the big guy.

Since the original Godzilla died at the end of the movie I fear we will be getting an origin story...but I do agree with you. I hope they tie it into the first film.

New pict on Ain't It Cool News...FEMA relief for those affected by Godzilla's rampage. This does mean that at least some of the film will be set in the US.

The original Godzilla dying at the end of the first movie didn't hinder any of the other 27 Toho Godzilla movies from being sequels of that first movie. They could very well go the route of "Godzilla 1984" or most of the Millennium series and simply not address Godzilla's death, but still addressing his rampage through Tokyo in 1954.

Not necessarily. Godzilla Raids Again and the Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla/Tokyo SOS duology simply had a second member of the Godzilla species show up. GMK stated (and G vs. Megaguirus implied) that the original Godzilla had only been nearly killed and had a '90s-Wolverine-like ability to regenerate if any part of him survived. And The Return of Godzilla apparently just had Godzilla show up without explanation -- and later films in the same continuity gave mixed messages about whether it was the original (G vs. King Ghidorah) or a second one (G vs. Destroyah).

The writers have stated that Godzilla will have origins in this movie. They are tying the origins to some nuclear event although it will not be bomb testing.

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Godzilla's economic footprint to dwarf all others

Interesting little article on how the budget for this movie is the most ever spent on a Godzilla movie.

http://www.richmondreview.com/news/207465601.html

Also, from what I have read elsewhere it seems that San Francisco will be the city where Godzilla makes landfall.

That wouldn't surprise me in the least, but it's not what the article's saying. It's saying that the local economic impact of this shoot in Richmond, British Columbia, a part of the Vancouver metropolitan area, will be 10 times greater than that of the many, many TV series that shoot in the Vancouver area, because it's a bigger production. The item is about the benefit to the local economy, not the budget of the movie (although the two are related).


Also, from what I have read elsewhere it seems that San Francisco will be the city where Godzilla makes landfall.
Suddenly I'm hoping for a Godzilla/Mythbusters crossover. Can Grant build a robot to stop Godzilla?

Interesting. I believe the first, or at least first US, Kaiju attack in Pacific Rim is in San Francisco too.

San Francisco was also attacked by a giant monster (courtesy of the late Ray Harryhausen) in 1955's It Came From Beneath the Sea, just a year after the original Godzilla. In fact, the giant octopus in that film was irradiated and driven from its normal feeding grounds by the exact same Marshall Islands nuclear tests that drove Godzilla from his (and that inspired the making of the film in the first place).

I wonder if the writers chose San Francisco as some type of homage to one of the inpiration for Godzilla?

^As I said, ICFBtS came out the year after Godzilla, so the movie itself was not an inspiration. Rather, the two films were independently inspired by the real-life phenomenon of the Marshall Islands H-bomb tests.
