I've only been on this board since last year but I was a lurker since 2010. I'm hoping this movie is a success and this board will be as active as it is now. I've been on Godzilla message boards for many years and have seen many good ones bite the dust due to low participation. Hoping that won't happen here.

TK has been around since the early 2000s and the forums since 2005 if not earlier. From 2006-2009 there was arguably nothing substantial about a new film. just that Hedorah 3-D rumor that had been around since final wars.

This place has been around for a while, I knew of the actual main website for a long time, though I never visited or lurked the forums till last year. So I don't think this place is in any danger of falling into obscurity. Though I have noticed a few regulars stop posting.

I doubt he's lying. He had the exclusive shirt to prove it.

That's is true. I wonder if it was a private screening with a selected group of people

Meh, Arab oil sheikhs and their kids have enough money to get anything.
In my opinion, of course.

Well the supposed screening took place in a very upscale theater in Dubai, I could see the rich people getting a very exclusive screening at that Mall, which by the way is The Mall of the Emerates.
Sadly, I must make you aware that anything I say is my opinion.

Contrary to popular belief, I did like Godzilla 2014

I was kinda dismissive of him, especially after seeing Monsters and not being all that impressed. Though that was a long time ago, I should see it again. My overall thoughts on the film was "yeah we'll see if this happens or not".
You have no idea how excited I got when I found out about this back in 2010. I remember thinking how long the wait would feel til 2012...

Well, turns out, the wait ended up being a bit longer. Hopefully, this films is able to live up to the hype.

Godzilla name speculation

Post by Fenrir Project »

In an interview, director Gareth Edwards says that like "Man of Steel", the word Godzilla would not be spoken in the movie. So what do think they will refer to him as? Here are my guesses:
-Genesis
-Muto 1
-Nautilus

Well, not to be that guy but they did technically say "Superman" at least once in the movie. A similar thing might happen with this, and idk if Kanjira54 is joking or not, but maybe Gojira "legends" or something would be the basis for the name. Ironically that getting misheard and re-pronounced as Godzilla was not a bad idea in G98.

Snowden's script had a scene where they say his name. I hope they say. I mean what's the point of NOT saying it?

If they're going to give it a name, they might as well go with Godzilla short of some kind of code name like that MUTO/MUTO 1 thing.

Here's my understanding of what Snowdizzle said:
Spoiler:
The scientists name the frozen Godzilla species "Jira" and since the polynesian islanders thought it was their "God" the military combines the two. Someone (Stetz) then misstates the name Godzilla.
I think that's gonna end up in the deleted scenes. They'll either go with a much shorter explanation or not say it at all. Probably the latter.

I wonder why certain movies these days don't like calling the characters by their well known names. What's wrong with calling Superman by his superhero name? What's wrong with calling zombies as they really are? A lot of zombie movies seem to be afraid of uttering the Z word. Now even Godzilla?

I bet if Samuel Jackson was in the movie, Godzilla would be called the "Big @$#%@! $(#*@!$ Monster!" :D
