Godzilla films you want to see?

Postby GodzillaFan1990's » Sat May 11, 2019 8:15 pm

Title is self-explanatory. What Godzilla films would you like to see happen?

Me personally I'd to see a Godzilla movie where he goes up against Cronus and the other titans like Atlas from Greek Mythology. Imagine such an titanic battle between the King of the Monsters and Leader of the Titans. So fitting and thematic. :shock:

Biollante vs. Gaia also think of that as well. ;)

...Heck better yet just a Godzilla film where he fights various giant figures from mythology such as the Yamata no Orochi (Not like that one-sided fight in Rage Across Time), Quetzalcoatl and Ymir.

I'd personally want to see the scrapped 1994 American film made, using the original script.

I am more interested in seeing talented film makers take on Godzilla, than any particular Godzilla Vs return of classic or underused properties or previously scrapped idea.

Love to see Mamoru Oshii have free rein to do a Godzilla movie. He is a very imaginative film maker and would love to see his take, free from heavy studio mandates and interference.

Also it would be interesting in a Studio Ghibli made a, Hayao Miyazaki directed, Godzilla film. Time is running out on this option. I am pretty sure the environmental message would be front and center.

Love to see Guillermo del Toro do a coproduction with Toho. Not a MonsterVerse film, but his take on Godzilla.

I imagine the best way to get that done is to go back in time to make sure it gets made instead of the Emmerich version.

I'd love to see an American Godzilla film that's heavily centered around a political theme.

Personally, I would love to see Clive Barker's unmade Godzilla film in some way or another.

That`s a real thing?

Probably what I would want/think is a good idea, is maybe a film focused around a new monster emerging from Mt. Fuji. Godzilla vs. Biollante sort of does this a bit, with Godzilla emerging from another volcano, but I think the idea of a countdown to some new apocalyptic monster appearing would be pretty cool. Maybe midway through the film the volcano erupts.

I know I keep saying the same thing, but I severely want to see a Godzilla movie that takes place in a sensationalized Feudal Japan.

Yeah, we had a thread about it a few months ago. Basically, in 1993 Clive Barker was asked by TriStar to write a short story treatment for their planned Godzilla adaptation; he turned in a draft but very little is known about it except that it was evidently set in New York during the last days of 1999 (hinting at an apocalyptic tone), and according to Steve Ryfle TriStar execs found it “too dark” for the summer blockbuster they planned to make.

A Godzilla vs. Orochi movie. And have it take place sometime in either pre-samurai era or when it was just starting. In other words, have it take place when the Emperor was still in charge before the shoguns basically hijacked the power.

Something like Return of Godzilla where the world is on the brink of nuclear war and Godzilla's existence is being concealed by the government to prevent panic, only it's set in a brutal 1984 style dystopian police state. People who have seen Godzilla are sent to insane asylums, like how the giant ants are covered up in Them!. A movie with a strong theme of Cold War era paranoia and despair.

Unfortunately Godzilla vs Satan was a myth, though there are indications that it was born out of a misinterpretation of early drafts for Godzilla 1984 (which featured Godzilla battling an early version of Bagan that could transition between flying, land-based, and aquatic forms before transforming into a final “Demon God” form)

EDIT: You’ve been here for nine years and you probably already know that
Sorry

A Fallout type movie, where everyone's been limited to Vaults/Bunkers due to dozens of years of "war". Only for a group of survivors to overthrow their Vault-leaders, escaping onto the barren landscape to see what's really going on, Finding a sepia-toned world decimated by Titans. Throw in some kinda ex machina they need to find, not to stop the monsters, but to get back home with much-needed supplies.

They could run into any situation between kaiju, as a reference to the old Showa stories that took place on Monster Island, where the explorers would watch the kaiju interact, but don't get involved.

Among the flicks I'd like to see made, chief among them would be an adaptation of Marc Cerasini's GODZILLA & THE LOST CONTINENT.(https://wikizilla.org/wiki/Godzilla_and_the_Lost_Continent). The sadly unpublished Random House novel dealing with a Texas sized landmass rising in the Pacific, and several Pacific Rim countries, including the U.S., trying to claim it. But a bunch of monsters likewise decide to make it their home. Until something else, called Raijin, rises up and soundly defeats all comers. Then to make matters worse, an intelligence within the Earth itself begins a little mission using Biollante as its avatar to cleanse the planet of the pollution created by mankind, and the people to boot. The story is bit different from the basic "monster vs. monster " scenario presented in most Godzilla flicks.

Also, before Marvel was bought by the Mouse House. I thought it would've been cool to see Toho ,and the House of Ideas' film division to collaborate on a project or two. Perhaps Godzilla facing his robot frenemy from the Marvel G-Mag, RED RONINhttps://wikizilla.org/wiki/Red_Ronin) in live action.

1. I still want to see a dead serious and emotionally charged Gojira/Return of Godzilla style film with Hollywood special effects centered around the geopolitical, social, religious fallout of Godzilla's first emergence to the modern world. A multilayered film showing the point of view of scientists, politicians, doctors, military/rescue personnel, and just regular people caught in the crossfire. Written by Frank Darabont and directed by someone like him or Christopher Nolan.

2. A family drama set in a world where giant monster attacks are a part of everyday life. Centered around a family coping with the loss of a loved one killed during an attack. It don't even have to specifically be Godzilla as it would only really feature a giant monster at the beginning as most the focus would be on the family dynamic and their emotional trauma.

3. Big budget adaptations of Marc Cerasini's novels.
