FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28

GODZILLA---new poster and size chart released for the reboot movie.







GOTHAM---a leaked copy of Episode 1's script has Gotham City Police Detectives James Gordon and Harvey Bullock investigating the murder of young Bruce Wayne's parents. Also in the episode are the young versions of Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler (who is a police coroner) and a young girl "who lives with dysfunctional parents and has a number of houseplants." A source who reviewed the script said, it was "filled with way too much exposition and explanation of who these characters are in the Batman universe."

JAMES BOND---Ralph Fiennes updated the status of the 24th Bond movie, "It's meant to start shooting in October. I haven't read a script yet, so I can't tell you much. They'd probably swear me to secrecy anyway."





HOWARD HUGHES---Warren Beatty is the star/director/co-producer of this untitled movie about the love affair between the reclusive billionaire's assistant (Alden Ehrenreich) and a young woman (Lily Collins). Candice Bergen will play Hughes' secretary. Annette Bening and Matthew Broderick are reportedly also co-starring with Jack Nicholson being a possibility to co-star.





ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES---director Adam McKay said the sequel will be the last, "It’s done. I think that’s it. It was great to do it and it was so fun to work with those guys again, but I think that’s it for Ron Burgundy. No, that's the last sequel we’re gonna do. There's nothing more fun to me than new characters and a new world. And now we're releasing this alt version, we're totally satisfied. No Anchorman 3."


ANT-MAN---Patrick Wilson (INSIDIOUS) has joined the cast in an undisclosed role.

COLD COMFORT---20th Century Fox movie underway based on the upcoming book HOW TO CATCH A RUSSIAN SPY which is described as, "the true account of an American civilian turned self-taught spy, who worked with the FBI to bring down a Russian intelligence agent on American soil (and who will reveal his identity at publication), co-written by Newsday columnist and NYT bestselling author Ellis Henican."

CHARLES MANSON---Fox miniseries underway about Charles Manson and his cult who killed seven people including actress Sharon Tate in 1969. Rob Zombie is the director, and Brett Easton Ellis is the writer. Fox has not approved the miniseries yet.

OLD SOUL---NBC sitcom pilot about an ex-party girl who now takes care of the elderly. Natasha Lyonne, Ellen Burstyn, Fred Willard and Rita Moreno star.

DARK HOUSE---horror movie underway about a man who returns to his possessed ancestral home which contains the secrets of his family's dark past and now reaches to his unborn son. Tobin Bell, Luke Kleintank and Lesley-Anne Down star.

I've got it! They land on Godzilla and then rope him up the way the Fremen ride the worms (Dune) and do the Bronco Billy. The beast can be tamed because deep inside, there's an american wanting to get out.

Don't know why they're quoting Oppenheimer.

He was quoting Hindu scripture, from the "Bhagavad-Gita."

Well, not exactly, he wrote later that this was what he thought when seeing the first atomic bomb explode...

Nothing like a high-falutin' GODZILLA...

GODZILLA---new poster and size chart released for the reboot movie.






So Godzilla looks like a giant snapping turtle. He is also twice the size of his 1954 counter part. Americans are so obsessed with size!

Did you not see that it's a quote from someone? (In this case, J. Robert Oppenheimer.) Did you think the marketing department at Legendary Pictures released a poster with bad grammar? Even I know it's a quote from scripture.

He is also twice the size of his 1954 counter part. Americans are so opposed with size!

Considering how much bigger cities are in 2014 compared to 1954, they probably had to make Godzilla twice the size in order to tower above the cities of today.

King Kong, at about 25ft, is 1/14 the size of Godzilla. If the average height of a human being is 6ft, that would make Godzilla 58 and 1/3 times taller. I'd hate to think what the blast radius would be if Godzilla were to fart in the vicinity.

This is tricky but I'd assume they'd (incorrectly) quote Oppenheimer on purpose because Godzilla is connected to nuclear stuff.

And quoting it to its original source might be misconstrued as improper by some.

There's a point. Man-made mushrooms, when fully sprouted, . . . are big.

I thought the exact same thing.

The original post is misleading and has sent this thread off on a tangent.

The first Godzilla picture is the frontispiece of a Godzilla article from Empire magazine. This is quite clear if you read down the page.

It is therefore not anything to do with the film, or the PR department but an unrelated quote made by the magazine itself.

The comparison chart may also be from the same magazine-I have not yet picked one up.

Therefore the criticism is at best misplaced. Or as seems to be with one particular poster, a determined effort to rubbish this film before he has seen it for no discernible reason judging by all the negative comments he keeps making about it on every thread.

Hmmm, are you referring to me? big grin

Actually I am looking forward to this film but yeah I have some nitpicks. Number one being this Godzilla's face looks like a snapping turtle. Also I made fun of his size because it's a common issue in Hollywood. Each Enterprise has to be much larger than the last, etc. (though apparently Japan has been making Zilla bigger and bigger) I also wish they didn't have a second monster in this film.

All that said if they keep the serious mood of the original, have strong characters it should be good. I love the fact they nailed his roar. Spine chilling! Some of the sequences seem storyboarded really well and I'm not seeing a lot of shaky cam or rapid camera movements which are plaguing modern films.

So I am cautiously optimistic despite some reservations.

Which we would gladly stop if Hollywood could be bothered to make a good Godzilla movie.
Until then...

I think Godzilla is bigging himself up a bit here. The destroyer of a few city blocks & large buildings, & killer of a lot of extras & a few minor characters before being splattered by a bomb or something.
