According to Godzilla-Movies.com, Michael Giacchino is going to do the musical score of the movie.

I've been hoping for Giacchino all along. His "Roar" piece from "Cloverfield" is a fantastic hommage to the stuff Akira Ifukube did.

This is good news! I hope he uses some of Ifukube" main Godzilla theme.

Oh my god, yes! Giacchino is my second favorite movie/tv composer after John Williams.

Damn! Seems like that originated from IMDb and was false. Giacchino denied on twitter:

Should've known. There are always some idiots on IMDb who don't seem to know the difference between "What I wish would happen" and "What's actually happening." (I still remember how, before Star Trek Nemesis came out, the IMDb cast list included essentially every still-living Romulan character from TNG, DS9, and VGR, not one of whom actually appeared in the film.)

Legendary Pictures had a conference where news of Godzilla was talked about!!

Also, it looks like there will be a big line of toys and other things to go with the film!

You don't seem to find as many tie in toys with regards to anything but superheros.

There has always been a big market for Godzilla toys. I know some people with rooms filled with figures from the movies.

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

I'd assume such toys are mainly of the kaiju themselves, and maybe of the various mecha used to battle them. But are there any action figures of the human characters? Could one obtain a figure of Professor Yamane or Miki Saegusa? Or a G-Force headquarters playset with a Mechagodzilla hangar?

Yeah, it is the Kaiju themselves.I have seen a couple of Don Frye action figures dressed up as he was in Final Wars.

Legendary Entertainment Moves to NBCUniversal


Legendary Pictures has parted company with Warner Brothers and is now teaming up with Universal Pictures.

Universal owns the rights to King Kong and many fans, like myself, would like to see Godzilla vs King Kong as the sequal to the 2014 film.

I'm not sure if that'd work with how they're making the first film. With two new, and potentially, genetic engineered creatures for Godzilla to fight this time round, which fits in with them wanting to stick to the dangers of human tampering with nature theme, I'm not sure how you'd shoehorn in the character of King Kong and his Skull Island background.

But then I'm totally fine with Godzilla fighting all new monsters, so the nostalgia of the old is probably more lost on me than most.

I think you mean "is now teaming up."

I dunno, I never cared for the idea of taking King Kong, who's only supposed to be 30-40 feet tall, and blowing him up to Godzilla size. It feels like cheating.

I'm more interested by the fact that Legendary is behind both Pacific Rim and Godzilla. How about seeing the Jaegers take on the king of all kaiju?

Yes, I did mean now. Toho has wanted to make a remake of King Kong vs Godzilla for years but the rights to the character was too high. The 1991 movie, Godzilla vs King Ghidorah was supposed to feature King Kong but Toho couldn't get the rights.

I would like to see that movie made and I wonder if Toho will have any say in the matter and push for that movie to be made?

If Pacific Rim is a financial success then I would guess Mechagodzilla being in the sequel would also be a possibility.
