And those legs coming out of the ground. Kumonga? Something new? Mothra looks beautiful. I love the blue mixed into her wings. I'm not sure from the trailer but it looks like Ghidorah might be a wing walker a little bit in regards to some of his movements. Either way, I'm excited. Long Live the King.
I even found an easter egg. When Godzilla and Ghidorah were confronting each other in Antartica, it was a nod to Godzilla vs King Ghidorah (1991) when the two monsters confronted each other before fighting.
While we haven't seen the film yet I must respectfully disagree from what we've seen so far. Gareth's Godzilla was well realized in how it tried to portray things from the "human level" and make the monsters move visually, but it was muddy, dark and I didn't feel like a lot of their action was very compelling, it was just big animals doing what you'd expect big animals to do.
I've rather like Dougherty's style and use of visual effects in the films I have seen from his library, and I think he has the potential to bring a really well crafted, artistic action piece to the big screen that will take full advantage of the visual spectacle these beasts can deliver. It's a fine balance between "real" and "compelling".
Been through the trailer a bunch now, and it's a glorious piece of advertising, but I have one complaint...take a stiff drink every time that MONARCH dude says "Titan" during the Senate meeting and you'll feel a little buzzed by the end of the trailer ;)
I have heard rumours there will be more than Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Rodan and Mothra kaijus in the film. The trailer might hint at that. Notice those claws coming out of the ground at one point? Or the moving mountain? Doesn't look like all those kaijus we already know in the film. So could there be more kaijus?
TarrellZilla, I tend to agree. The effects aren't quite as polished as the 2014 film, but I don't find it bothersome or distracting. I think shifting the attention to more bonkers visuals is worth sacrificing a little realism. In fact you could say it goes hand-in-hand.
Godzillatheking123, Michael Dougherty said the film was "done" November 16th. I suppose they could always go back if they wanted to, but with November 16th being the post-production wrap date, that gave Godzilla: King of the Monsters 14 months of post-production time. That is an incredible amount of time for any movie and quite expensive. (Having worked on various films, time is money.) Avengers 4, for example is only getting 5-6 months. Spider-Man: Far From Home will get 8-9 months, etc.
Also consider footage is typically edited/worked on during a film's shoot--So post-production crew members have actually been cobbling these films together since before their wrap date.
The ultimate point being that post-production is an expensive process and the longer it takes, the more money studios have to shell out. I just have a hard time believing they'll continue to shell out that money after the movie has been worked on for 14 months beyond its wrap date. It's had a shockingly generous amount of post time.
G. H. (Gman): I just don't think we should be conclusive about the CGI just yet whether it's "finished" or not. Seeing it on the big screen vs the computer screen can provide a big difference, with many details that otherwise can't be seen clearly. So I don't think it's fair to judge the CGI as better or worse just yet.
IDK. If the movie was done shooting mid November (2017?) and has a mid January release- that seems pretty dang reasonable. If they need to do re shoots and lots of CGI after that date, then there could be trouble. It should be fine.
Given the generous timeline, it is really hard to see a focus on CGI will really matter to the average viewer.
^I agree. The question then remains if these other Titans will have actual fights, or if they're mostly flashback/reference material to give context to the current geopolitical situation during the film.
I think they will be reference material to show how there are more kaiju/titans appearing around the world. This movie already has 4 kaiju that have taken the spotlight so adding these new kaiju to the plot would make the movie feel a little bit cramped.
I hope that when the movie comes out, we will see these new kaiju appear on the Monarch sciences website with some information about them.
Black Scorpion - an old WB film... speculation mind you... but that could be what's coming out of the ground near the oil rigs. WB could use that and it could work for this movie. As for the mountain swelling up... that to me seems like it could be a TOHO monster that was green lighted but kept secret.
Great but with Milly in it people are gonna start comparing Godzilla and Stranger Things which are nothing alike. That is the only gripe I have with this but very happy there is another movie coming out especially with Mothra Rodan and even King Ghidorah.
