GODZILLA TRAILER!!!!

Words can’t express how excited I am for this new film and hopefully it will redeem the disaster of the last American Godzilla movie, and do Godzilla RIGHT! For your enjoyment, the first trailer for the New Godzilla Movie!!! Kaiju’s Rule!!!

From: http://www.godzillamovie.com/

An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Gareth Edwards directs “Godzilla,” which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” “Inception”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Cosmopolis”), and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck.,” “The Bourne Legacy”) and Bryan Cranston (“Argo,” TV’s “Breaking Bad”).

Edwards directs from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, story by David Callaham, based on the character “Godzilla” owned and created by TOHO CO., LTD. Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing with Mary Parent and Brian Rogers. Patricia Whitcher and Alex Garcia are serving as executive producers, alongside Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar®-nominated director of photography Seamus McGarvey (“Anna Karenina,” “Atonement”); production designer Owen Paterson (“The Matrix” trilogy); editor Bob Ducsay (“Looper”); Oscar®-nominated costume designer Sharen Davis (“Dreamgirls,” “Ray,” “Django Unchained”); and Oscar®-winning visual effects supervisor Jim Rygiel (the “Lord of the Rings” films). The score is being created by Oscar®-nominated composer Alexandre Desplat (“Argo,” “The King’s Speech”).

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures present a Legendary Pictures production, a Gareth Edwards film, “Godzilla.” Slated to open on May 16, 2014, the film is expected to be presented in 3D, 2D and IMAX® in select theatres and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd.

*** Notice that the “famous monster against malevolent creatures” phrase suggest that the Big G would be battling other kaijus!***

GO GO GODZILLA!

Disney's Frozen

Disney’s Frozen

Disney’s Frozen doing rather well at the box office. out for 3 weeks now and IMDB is reporting a total gross of 134 million! Well played, Disney folks! It finally seems that Disney is doing some right things as opposed to when I worked on Treasure Planet, $12,083,248 opening weekend as reported by IMDB, We were told 4.3 million opening weekend, in any case, with a 140 million budget it was not well received. Therefore, it’s nice to see animated movies making money and topping the box office again. Woo Hoo! Go Animation!
