Hey there, G-fans! Can you all believe we are only 24 HOURS AWAY FROM THIS MOVIE OPENING?!?!?!?! It’s hard to believe we’ve made it this far! The wait is almost over!
Anyway, I found a little tidbit of information I think you all need to know… Yesterday, Toho Kingdom teased upcoming one on one interviews with the cast and crew of Godzilla, including Ken Watanabe and Thomas Tull, and that tease was an incredible bit of awesomeness that went a little something like this…
Chris Mirjahangir: Will there be an extended cut of this (Godzilla) on the DVD/Blu-ray?
Thomas Tull: Yes
Mirjahangir: Like Peter Jackson style where it's all blended in together?
Tull: Well, that's really Gareth's choice. There are certainly some scenes and things you're gonna see, and it's up to him how he wants to present that to fans.
Well… there ya go! This is huge news, and while it’s not super shocking, it is a wonderful thing to look forward to! Various viewers have noted that scenes appear to be missing from the final cut that explained certain plot points, but were removed for pacing reasons. When Tull says its “Gareth’s choice”, that shouts “Director’s Cut”, which means certain deleted scenes, such as the extended prologue (the sequence was originally much longer, but was trimmed to maintain a strong pace) and, of course, Akira Takarada’s cameo, will almost certainly be reinstated into the film for home video release!!!!
Here’s the link to Toho Kingdom’s news page, with the news and the interview excerpt posted on May 12th:
