Sorry, probably should have put the full quote:

That's why Serkis is only really acting for Kong in the 'calmer', not action-intense scenes; and that was a prestigious $500 million production.
But that was 2008. Motion-capture has come much farther since then. Look at the recent Christmas Carol remake. Disney did that with motion capture, and I'm fairly sure it had less of a budget then 500 mil.
Not to mention that Godzilla is a hell of a lot slower than Kong. At least in his typical movements.
I was just saying that cause Godzilla on film is slow and lumbering doesn't necessarily mean that the filming process will produce less data to deal with.
