TCM did an Ishiro Honda spotlight marathon a year or two ago, featuring Japanese-language versions of Gojira, Rodan, and Mothra and dubbed versions of a couple of Honda's other tokusatsu films. Since then, unfortunately, they only seem to have shown the Raymond Burr version of the original.

Wow, great trailer. Based off of this, this movie will be exactly what I wanted from a big budget summer blockbuster Godzilla movie.

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Looks great. And although a bit dark and gloomy , hope it will be a hit. (I suspect Cranston and maybe one or two others won't make it to end credits; someone has to atone).

Sequel has to be Ghidorah (Though Biollante is my favourite out-there adversary).

Nice touch with the Obelisk Chorus from 2001 in the trailer soundtrack.

Yup, and I'm happy they've gone that route again for the new one. This one seems to be going the Evil Dead 2013 "requel" route, getting a few of these lately.

Yeah, the DVD's are ridiculously hard to track down now and my VHS collection isn't around anymore.

As for the poster, damn he practically has armour plating on his chest.

That Empire cover does a good job of making it look like a man-in-suit.

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Rewatched the original Japanese film (the effects were better than I remembered) and more the 1998 film (potential but not enough creativity or sincerity although I liked Azaria).
Trying to not get really spoiled for this film; some designs look good as do some of the actors (although I don't know about having a big cast).

The 1998 film features a creature named "Zilla", not Godzilla, so please don't bring it up in here.
