Godzilla (Japanese: ゴジラ, Hepburn: Gojira?) is an upcoming American science fiction monster film featuring the Japanese film monster of the same name in a reboot of the Godzilla film franchise produced by Toho. The film retells the origin of Godzilla in contemporary times as a "terrifying force of nature". The film is directed by British director Gareth Edwards, scripted by Max Borenstein and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Sally Hawkins, and Ken Watanabe.
The film is a co-production of Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures worldwide, except for Japan where it will be distributed by Toho. It is the second Godzilla film to be fully filmed[Note 1] by an American studio, the first having been the 1998 film of the same name. The film is scheduled to be released on May 16, 2014 in 2D and 3D.
(but omg Godzilla what the bloody hell have they done to you? This new version looks terrible. I know Bryan Cranston's in it, but there's no amount of even blue meth that could make this seem right. Vive la 1998 version, that's what I say.)
Believe it or not That's how Godzilla originally looked in the 1950's movie of Godzilla. A lot of fans of the original movie think that this is the Godzilla movie that should have been made so long ago.
The 1998 version is nice, but it's more like Jurassic Park in terms of how Godzilla looks (it's more Dinosaur looking, and less Nuclear Reptile like the original).
Looks like godzilla caught the T-Virus from Resident Evil and is turning into Zombie-Godzilla... Thinking of it, if that ever happened, we're so damn screwed...
