Another big thing people aren't really talking about here is that because the release date is so close to KOTM, GVK doesn't need a big campaign to remind people Godzilla exists. In a way it's riding the tailwinds of Godzilla King of the Monsters.

You want a big Godzilla hit? Ditch the other monsters take Godzilla and aim him straight at Tokyo. Godzilla vs. Tokyo that’s what people want. They want him knocking over buildings and killing Tokyo people. Keep it to 90 mins and release it on 4th of July.

Or lack of tailwinds thereof considering hardly anyone outside of fans saw KOTM anyway and critics just hated it. If anything, it showed normies that Godzilla is something to avoid or something. I only hope GvK can right the ship, good marketing or not. It is good that they're not drowning us with trailers a year early like KOTM did though. No hype is better than mistimed hype that dies before the movie comes out.

The first KOTM trailer hit with a bang and then nothing new for quite a stretch, they’re better off unleashing a major hype train that comes out with solid momentum and doesn’t let up.

Godzilla is a franchise where GA isn’t going to hype over the next film for a year plus, show them footage just before they can actually go see it and you have a better shot at winning their attention, only fans like us thrive on a year’s worth of marketing and they know we’re already well aware that it’s coming.

The trailer has apparently been rated and is 2 minutes long. This comes from Godzilla-Movies so take it with a bit of salt.

They haven't said anything about the trailer being rated...

Don’t think they got the memo it was that faked image from Alberta trailer ratings. It’s that same image that was spread on twitter and reddit

Yeah the article they posted has already been altered remove any mention of the trailer being rated. Didn't even bother to add a disclaimer about their mistake. Just changed it like it never happened. :roll:

A very tiny taste for those who have been begging for Legendary Godzilla to fight the military

It feels so wrong to watch after just watching the Rebirth scene for the thousandth time...

Godzilla using his atomic breath on tanks is a bit overkill, but otherwise it is super epic! This is what would happen if humanity ever went too far against him and nature. Godzilla only cares about the Earth, not us in particular. (He does consider us to be part of Earth though, so he does protect us sometimes)

I actually felt that was more “Godzilla-y” than almost anything we’ve got from Legendary thus far

The Legendary take on G is a legit take but it’s not really connected to the classic G from the early 60s or the Heisei/Millenium eras that most would associate with the character.

I prefer for my Godzilla to be a tad more....anti social and chaotic when dealing with humanity. Not Gamera-lite.

But that's basically every other Godzilla other than maybe late Showa. I find a heroic Godzilla to be refreshing personally. But I agree that he could use some more accidental destruction or a bit of non-malevolent retaliation (just getting the military off his back instead of purposefully smashing cities to pieces), maybe even some actual purposeful destruction if he was doing it to preserve the balance of nature (destroying some huge fantastical factory that's causing massive pollution or something)

I like a change of pace but I feel like it’s not in character for Godzilla to just take damage from the military without retaliating like in G 14 or to sidestep around naval vessels and the like.

I'd compare it to a tamed dog. He could viciously maul you to death at any moment, but chooses not to because he knows you aren't a threat.

I get that. It will never be my preferred take on Godzilla.

But as a one off for a limited series of films I’m game.

I don't mind anti hero and villian Godzilla but heroic Godzilla is how I love see him. That's how I grew up was the HB series and the 70's shows films.
The one thing I want to see in life,TOHO buy Gamera.
