When Godzilla became a hero in the Showa era, he was mankind's hero against evil monsters, but in this movie, I don't believe he's anyone's here. Edwards has said, and Serkis' talk reaffirms, Godzilla is a tool of nature, and even the line from Serizawa in the latest TV spot enforces this. Nature has an order, Godzilla exists to maintain the balance. His first appearance in '54 comes about due to the testing of atomic weapons, then the chaos with the mutos draws him out. It's like the line from Godzilla 1985, "when mankind falls into conflict with nature, monsters are born." He's a message to humanity to stop doing the things they do. Stop messing with atomic weapons and nuclear energy, stop playing with genetics and trying to control nature. He'll ruin the world for humans as much as take down the mutos.

I think he was referring to the humans, I don't know.

Also, Godzilla was played by Andy Serkis? Wow. So much range.

Nice.

How the hell can humans warm up the Earth's core? That makes no sense.
I really hope that's just BS and not what's going on in this movie.

That's actually the runtime for the original Gojira. The runtime for the new movie is 2 hours 15 minutes.

What's the source saying 135 minute run time?

98 minutes would be surprising for a summber blockbuster, but, every Godzilla movie from Toho has been around the 90 minute market. I don't think it's necessary to be 2 hours or more if the time is used well.

I hope a directors cut with deleted scenes comes out when the movie hits DVD.

Actually he wasn't. Andy was a consultant on Godzilla's behavior, there was no motion capture from him like Kong.

hey, is there a reason why the advance ticket sale is only for 3D shows?

I want to watch this movie but in regular IMAX without 3D. I didn't see any of these tickets go on advance sale?

That will probably depend on your theatre. I know my theatre almost always exclusively shows IMAX 3D showings (no 2D IMAX).

I'd love to see the film in 2D IMAX (can't stand 3D) but unfortunately no theaters around me have the option. Ah well, regular viewing works too. I'm really hoping the film has an open ending, that Godzilla survives the film rather than being killed off. On top of allowing for sequels should the movie do well, it also drives home the message of how unstoppable he is, that he will always be around, no matter what.

Ugh, the AMC IMAX theater that I'm gonna go see it at still doesn't have them up. I actually called them and they said their programmer is going to work in the showtimes soon.

The runtime on Fandago is actually 2 hrs and 3 mins. It's that same runtime on AMC's website as well.

Lucky skreeonk. Looks like I'm avoiding the movie forum for a whole day since the earliest time it shows in IMAX 3D is opening day 7:00 pm.
