The Godzilla in the new movie is approximately 350ft tall. The reasoning for this is that they wanted him to be big enough that you could be standing anywhere in the city and still see him, but not so big that it's be impossible to obscure him for those all important moments of tension...Mangod said:I dunno, maybe it's just me, but when I first saw a trailer for this new Godzilla, my first thought wasn't "OMG I need to see this!", but rather "... so, how f***ing big is Godzilla supposed to be in this?" And sadly, the first clip of trailer footage Bob showed us of the movie in this video only served to amplify my concern. Seriously guys, Godzilla is supposed to be big, I get that... but why the f*** is his f***ing head piercing the f***ing cloud coverage?! He's not the size of a walking mountain, people! The movie is supposed to be about a giant monster attacking; these trailers make it look like Japan itself grew legs and decided to come over and wreck stuff.
Or maybe they're both movies that seem to be suffering from the same problem?Mangue Surfer said:So, is just a trap to talk about Man of Steel again. Bob, you really need a intervention.
If you want to know as little about Godzilla 2014 as possible before it opens, do not venture past this point...TheSapphireKnight said:I totally get where you are coming from with some of the "grim/dark" fatigue. This most recent trailer actually tempered my excitement somewhat. That said I think the reason I am more forgiving of this is simply because we haven't seen something in the style of the original for a while.
I love the whole range of the Godzilla spectrum, and I hope this is both good enough and mildly successful enough to warrant sequels. With that in mind I figure it would be easier to go from "serious" and lighten the tone from there than it would be to give a "serious" Godzilla later down the line if it started out more like Pacific Rim.
As much as I want to see something in the Gojira style, I still definitely want to see things like Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah later down the line too.
