It seems that Toho is pulling out all the stops for the upcoming 'Godzilla Resurgence.' In the past few months alone, they have organized product crossovers with the massively popular 'Evangelion' series and "Gudetama," a Japanese company's popular lazy egg mascot.
Ah, you've gotta love 2013's 'Pacific Rim.' Guillermo del Toro created a wonderful new kaiju universe to play around in as a love letter to giant monster fans everywhere, and the film was generally well received by them around the world. Now that we officially can squint and see a sequel on the horizon, I thought it might be fun to do some speculating on the plot of Steven S. DeKnight's follow-up and also dive into some additions that I would like to see in the future film. Keep in mind that some of these speculations are based on rumors floating around when the sequel was known as 'Pacific Rim: Maelstrom,' and was still going to be directed by del Toro. Also keep in mind that this article will contain SPOILERS for 'Pacific rim.'
We all know Godzilla as a destroyer of cities, kaiju, and aliens, but apparently now he is rampaging through time as well. A few weeks ago IDW Publishing announced their next comic book miniseries in the Godzilla universe: "Godzilla: Rage Across Time." Japan's green goliath will trek through the past leaving all sorts of temporal devastation in his wake.
Japan always gets the nicest Kaiju things. Looks like there is a new Blu-ray set for the Heisei Gamera series coming out on July 22nd in Japan and it looks to be a pretty awesome box-set collecting these amazing Kaiju movies. The movies in the box-set have been fully remastered to 4K resolution and have a bunch of never before seen special features for the films.
This week, film distributer New World Cinemas spoke for the first time about their supposed 'Godzilla: Resurgence' U.S. distribution on their Facebook page. While we have previously reported that New World Cinemas would be taking the reins on the American release of the film, I'm starting to have some doubts that an unknown distributor would be given the reigns to a reinvigorated franchise the size of Godzilla. I have a bit of evidence (or lack thereof) that may shine some light on this bizarre turn of events.
