Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Oh, that's just gonna make me want to see Godzilla vs. Smaug. Or maybe I should say Godzilla vs. the Smaug Monster?

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Heh. I was wondering when somebody was going to spot that.

And now you know why I've been keeping my mouth shut in this thread . . . .

As usual, I'm sworn to secrecy!

Thanks! Needless to say, I'm very excited. (I'm typing away to a GODZILLA soundtrack as we speak.)

Nice avatar, btw!

Is it a good plot? Can you at least give us a yes or no?

I have high hopes for the movie, and beyond that I really can't say anything. Going to radio silence now!

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Here's an interesting interview: http://www.pushing-pixels.org/2013/1...-mcgarvey.html

Notably:

It is, and I did like those aberrations. We can still preserve this with lenses, for instance, that are now more vital as we put them in front of the sensor. On “Godzilla” I used the old C series anamorphic lenses, and for the section in 1954 I used really old vintage lenses from the early 1960s. They took the edge off of the very vivid, sharp sensors, and gave it a distant period feel. That’s exciting as glass is coming back in terms of lending difference to each project that we do. It’s nice to be able to interfere with image, to sort of mess it up a bit.
And:

I still conceive of something of how I would do it on film, so I’m not just sitting in the DI trying this and that. I still have the same disciplined approach to imagining what the image might be. For example, for the 1950s section on “Godzilla” I knew that they look I wanted was a peeled look with muted colors and diffusion on the highlights, a sense of period distance. I found a lot of photographs and magazines, and I knew that I wanted the blacks to be imbued with a tint of magenta. I assembled a lot of references, and I was able to show it and do some tests in advance. We nailed the look when we established a lookup table which we applied every time we shot those section. It was the same pre-conception of what we were going to do on the day.
So, there appears to be a part of the film actually set in 1954 afterall?

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Ooh, I hope that means this movie is a sequel to the original, maybe recreating portions of it, rather than a complete reboot. There have been seven different canonical Godzilla continuities, but the one thing they (almost) all have in common is that they include the events of the original film as part of their backstory, albeit occasionally reinterpreted somewhat. Even the Devlin-Emmerich film implies that there was a prior creature named Godzilla known to the Japanese. So I've been hoping all along that this film would also reference the original.

The 50's stuff could be anything, though I'd love either a Daisuke Serizawa reference or something to do with Odo Island.

Are you going to include Batman in the novel? It is another WB property and you have written Batman novels.


Maybe the nuke at of TDKR created Godzilla

It would appear that the viral marketing has begun for Godzilla: http://www.totalfilm.com/news/exclus...dzilla-trailer
