I'm kinda worried that if this comes out first then the general audience may ignore "Godzilla" because of a been there- done that vibe sorta like if you had seen say "Dante's Peak" and then you may very well have bypassed "Volcano". Especially if people don't like this one then they may expect "Godzilla" to be more of the same. We all know that for this to be a success with the budget they're sure to use then it will need as much of the general audience as possible to come see it.


Well I think Godzilla stands more of chance than volcano. Godzilla's a recognized franchise. Also Gareth will keep the budget down. Wasn't that one of the pull factors that lead LP to hiring him?

Ugh....

Well, with this film coming in Summer 2013, I can assure you guys that the earliest we'll see LP's Godzilla is Summer 2014. Still, this film sounds intriguing, I'm just not sure how a giant monster film in Del Toro's hands will work,

I'm really looking forward to this! I think this should be fun to look forward to, as its not an established character or series that I love and so would be worried about them runining it.

I am glad he is leaving the horror aspect out of this film. We are over due for real giant monster movie!

I still would of preferred a known commodity associated with Godzilla. I think Edwards is going to be too scared to take any risks. I fear that the new Godzilla film is going to be boring. Pacific Rim on the other hand could be one crazy thrill ride.

I think the name Godzilla alone would have people going to see it opening night, simply because it is an established franchise. It's better in a way for them to do Pacific Rim first as if Godzilla was first then you would most definitely have the "been there done that" vibe. That's like saying releasing a Batman movie the year after a generic (but maybe good) superhero movie would be a bad idea. It's just warming the audience up. Plus it's a nice movie to have the first Godzilla teaser trailer, don't you think?

If this turns out as good as I hope it does, I could honestly care less about the LP Godzilla movie.

Because it's a skreeonk giant monster movie directed by Guillermo goddamn del Toro, that's why!

I dunno. I actually didnt like Pan's Labrynth. I never watch a film because of the writer, director or producer (Tarantino is the only director who I sought out more films of).

lol I often seek films because of the director or writer.

Thats an interesting logo. It supposed to be the one that will be on the uniforms of the "heros" combating against the monsters. Dosen't delivery a whole to but yet holds my interest
