Toho to make first Godzilla film in 12 years!
now this could be fake of course but I highly doubt it.
but anyways it looks legit as it has words from toho themselves and the fact they have decided to do it
from 2014's success in the box office , the movie will not have any ties with Edwards film and will be its own movie like final wars etc and will be released in Japan sometime in 2016

Wow great news!
Cool! A upcoming Godzilla film with Godzilla actually appearing longer than 11 minutes, I support this!
HELL YESS. CAN"T WAIT!!!!!
BOW DOWN! THE KING HAS RETURNED! LONG LOVE GOJIRA!
Well if Toho doesn't debut the film over here in the states...then they should not be allowed to see anymore of the Godzilla films that we do...
Share and Share alike!!!

I'm excited but also worried. Its great to see suitmation back on the table and seeing a Japanese Godzilla film again. Here's my worries though: Is it going to conflict with the Legendary series? I really enjoyed the Legendary film and kind of threw me back to good days of the Shows series but with a Hollywood budget so I don't want anything to happen that could conflict with that series. My other worry is that is will it be as terrible as the millenium series? I only found G2000 to be the good film in that series.
Maybe a continuation of G Jr. From Hensei? That would be a cool twist
I'm more than thrilled at this news. But how is this going to work in terms of release? Would this new Toho Godzilla be only released in Japan and other non-US markets? Would it not be released here (or only through very niche markets in a few screens) for fear that Legendary might not be pleased there will be another godzilla movie out before theirs?
It's a little early to be talking about international distribution of the film. But it will like get a home video release in the States as soon as possible. And depending on its popularity, perhaps a limited theatrical run in a few cities.
Many of you have to understand though, Toho wants their films to be released globally. It's up to the distributors of different countries to actually buy their movies and release them how they see fit.
One option I can see is this not reaching North America until closer to Gareth Edwards Godzilla 2 in order to promote the next Legendary film better. Which would be a shame and largely out of Toho's hands.
In any case I'm quite excited about it. The movie is going to be produced by a fairly prominent producer in Japan. Shogo Tomiyama is no where near this one.
GMAN what's your take on it? I'd like to see a hensei style suit but a 70s (terror of mg) style film. I guess a throwback shows film with a hensei suit lol
I want them to revisit on of the invading alien stroylines....preferably the black hole aliens..
No more Xyliens crap...i want it to have a revenge theme to it..
Also how cool would it be if they introduce a baby Godzilla in it that looks like Legendary's Godzilla!!!

I'm not really interested in Toho going backwards and revisting other continuities and designs. With a new producer involved I would hope he's smart enough to do two things, 1) Look forward and try some new ideas. 2) Seperate the film stylistically from the Legendary movie as much as possible.
What are those ideas and how to pull them off? I just don't know. But I know I'm not interested in seeing anything from the Showa, Heisei (not hensei) and Millennium series any more. I want a whole new crew, new directors, new writers. No more Tezuka, Okawara, Omori or Mimura.
I'm really, really excited about this movie too, but I felt like their announcement was a little classless. They said something along the lines of 'We will not bow down to the whims of Hollywood', a clear bash to the new film and it's producers. I don't know what their beef is there, they have fully supported the movie, said they were fans even. It made them a boatload of cash, too. Their latest Godzilla attempt wasn't anything to crow about, either.
My phone corrected Heisei to Hensei. Stupid phone.
The world will spin well past our last breath, but I will always care about you
Sweet! Hopefully it will be a more serious godzilla film. But i will take whatever they give me.

Words cannot express my excitement ????
Why are there question marks on my previous comment?
This is great news.
I am pleased as punch that Toho is making a Godzilla film. I am cautiously optimistic that lessons have been learned. To me, this means that there will a proper and sufficient production schedule, with plenty of time to work on pre- and post-production. It sounds like they're on to something: the script ifor 2016 release is already in development; film will be lensed between summer of 2015 and fall of 2016. Early story development, a much longer than usual production schedule gives one hope for a film that will be remarkable. All that is needed is a compelling design, a director with a vision and the freedom to not make a movie-by-the-numbers.
I hope that the story is Japan-centric in a way that taps into Japanese culture while being cutting edge and modern at the same time.
This is a great day.
I'm with Gman and the King of the Monsters when it comes to the issue of suitmation.
Gman said it best: this is a unique form of visual expression and special effects. Japan pioneered it. It's theirs. Now is the time, under the proper cir***stances (proper production time, lengthy script and story development and new talent) to show the world the beauty of this unparalleled art form. I'm hoping for a film that is very Japanese, and I think we're going to get it. Enhancement with CGI is expected, almost a given. But, a great film with convincing effects is possible (and most enjoyable) when artistry, vision, time and daring are brought together, using time-tested, traditional effects.
The statement by the Toho executive exhibited a kind of pride being at the core of this new venture.
We can have the best of both worlds.
It's funny and more than and a little ironic, but I was wondering if the big-budget, ultra-convincing effects and production values of Lengendary's Godzilla would somehow diminish my enjoyment of the Toho made films.
In fact, it has enhanced my love for these films and the way they are carefully and lovingy crafted with the look thery have. That special look. Convincing enough to sweep you up into the story, but stylized enough to be the embodiment of an art form that satisfies in a way that totally digital effects cannot. Or, perhaps, are not meant to.
The suit acting and the miniatures are beautiful in not only the way they look, but also in the way that we can relate to them. Because we are close to them.
I am looking forward to Toho's new Godzilla.
