19 Responses to Godzilla (2014) Movie Easter Eggs Thread [Spoilers]
This is a suprisingly professional topic for your first post! I'm gonna go ahead and make this THE Easter egg thread for the film. If anyone posts a similiar thread I'll refer them back to this one. Well done sir!
haha Thanks, man. Means alot!
OLDSKOOLGODZILLA93 - Welcome to the site! I very much hope you enjoy it here - we're always happy to see new faces. Make yourself at home and start posting! As for your first topic, this was very fun and interesting. I believe I missed a few of the little goodies you mentioned, hence I must watch the film a third time - darn the rotten luck! ;) Thank you very much for sharing this with us! :)
The only Easter egg I spotted was the Ghidorah one. Wow I didn't realize there were so many. You have a good eye!
Allow me to add, I'm not sure if this counts but similar to one of my posts before, the Airport scene at night might be a homage to the airport battle in Godzilla vs Destoroyah. Also, with Godzilla rising on a suspension bridge and completely ignoring any military offensive might be a awipe at Gino who basically died in 2 air strikes while tied up on a bridge.
For #1 on your list... thats poster foreshadows the end of the film. Godzilla fighting MUTO & the Military in San Francisco. Pretty cool stuff!
Welcome to the site. I'm a month new and once you start meeting people it becomes a nice feeling. Just don't make the same mistake I made making a topic that offend people. And if you ever do make one make sure to apologize. Ok and again Welcome to the site
There are strong men and weak men. The strong ones are here to keep the weak ones up when ever they fail.
A couple of these might be reaching for something that isn't there. I mean, the kid in the Japanese kid in the movie who reminds you of kids in kaiju movies probably b/c he's a kid in a kaiju movie, you know? Anyway, the "Go Whale" tour boat is a great find. I'm geeking out about that one right now. And thanks to MIKEYNAMEZ for the pic of the poster. At first I thought it was an homage, but now it appears to be a summary of the film's climax. Good stuff.
oldschoolgodzilla93 if you go and see it again there is one more you may have miss. that is the rodan one i think or it look like rodan. it is when Ford is in school when he is looking outthe window and if you look at the origami's. one of them look like rodan.
I agree that the oragami was a nod towards Rodan
I know this one has been mentioned before but i didn't notice it so far in this thread. The Mothra fairies appear to be in a building as the second MUTO is leaving Vegas
@DUCKYCHILL. Those are firefighters
UPDATE: Gareth Edwards revealed that the Kaiju poster in Ford's room says
"Let Them Fight!" in Japanese (http://www.empireonline.com/features/godzilla-secrets-gareth-edwards)
When first watching the movie, I thought that poster looked a lot like Zilla, but yeah now I can see what it really is.
For me there is a Jurassic Parj easter egg, after Godzilla uses the Kiss of Death, he roars the music reminds me of Jurrasic park for some reason

Call me nuts, but during my most recent viewing of the film (the fourth time!), I caught an interesting possible easter egg: the guy at the power plant that Joe is talking to on the phone, and later in person at the plant, in the begining o the film is named Takashi. A reference to original Gojira actor Takashi Shimura, perhaps? Shimura portrayed Dr. Yamane in the original film, and lent his monumental talents to numerous other Toho science fiction films, as well as recieving global acclaim for his roles in Akira Kurosawa's early films. It would be an obveous easter egg for fans to find!

Please look what i found! I loved the opening credits so I was really into it and I discover this:
There are quite a few other easter eggs not Godzilla related but classic monster movie related.
1: The ending kill shot where Godzilla rips open the mouth of the female MUTO is a clear nod to the original King Kong when he breaks the T-Rex's jaw in a very similar manner.
2: When the bus driver on the Golden Gate Bridge wipes the moisture build up off the window is almost an exact copy from Jurassic Park when they wipe the window to see the T-Rex break out.
3: All the birds going crazy around the school bus is a nod to both Birds by Alfred Hitchcock and to the 1984 Godzilla movie where he is drawn to the migrating birds.
4: The cockroach crawling on the toy tank in Ford's old house to me was a clear nod to the parasite insects that lived on Godzilla in 1985 and attack the fishermen. Too similar of a creature to the roach to not think it was done on purpose in my opinion.
The little kid on the train is a clear nod to the kid in Son of Godzilla. His outfit is almost the same.
