A weird COVID factoid is that Ghostbusters was actually #1 at the box office one week during the height of it when no other movies were being released(but of course some stupid governors were still keeping theaters open).

I just got back from the theatre, the movie rocks, it's as you'd expect and has some great visuals. It's profoundly, proudly dumb and anyone that looks for plot holes and inconsistencies is wasting their energy, because no one should care.

Kong is the main character of the movie, by far. The humans spout nonsense and get into some interesting scenes to drive the plot. It's a Kong movie primarily.

mechagodzilla being janky looking ruled, i laughed at castle kong's power up weapon, the gravity poo poo made no sense

It's much more akin to KOTM and Skull Island than it is 2014, as you'd expect. and the BvS plot comparisons are valid .

I suspect big chunks were cut off, because there's a pretty famous actor given one line. I suspect there was a military/monarch plot just loving dropped for time. probably a smart move.

Soon.


Most of the early reactions seem more positive toward GvsK than they were for KotM, so that's a good sign.

I wonder how easily this can earn a profit (using the double budget formula). If there was indeed a 250 million fee for HBO Max streaming, then I don't think it will be too difficult.

Hey, uh... do you have Netflix? Do you have a VPN? Yes to both? Good. Get your rear end on a Japanese server and watch the first episode of Godzilla Singular Point (sorry no english).

edit: combo of NordVPN and Firefox is working for me. Private Internet Access and ExpressVPN both were giving me the black screen of being blocked.

Kind of surprised theyíve released all the pictures of MechaG, each post on the official Legendary accounts with it is full of pissed off fans complaining about spoilers. I guess itís no surprise but I was hoping to see the reveal and design during my first watch. I havenít seen the photos or videos, but have seen the toy and shirts.

While I suppose that the big spoiler is something a lot of people would have wanted to go in not knowing, there's no way it would have come to the US release date without it being known and pictures showing it. I'm sure someone at Legendary figured they'd be better off if they were the ones doing it than some lovely blurry cell phone pics.

"Due to delays in the production schedule caused by COVID-19, we will not be releasing SHIN ULTRAMAN in theaters in the early summer of 2021 as planned and will instead formulate a new release schedule. Our staff members are earnestly working on the production. We hope that you continue to look forward to its release. We will make further announcements about the release schedule on our official website and social media as plans are finalized."

Sounds like they just got behind and will miss summer as a result. I donít know what the Japanese theater schedule is like though, so would they just release it whenever itís finished (Fall 2021, Iím guessing) or pull a Black Widow and delay until next summer for box office reasons?

I'm not a huge fan of the '14 film overall but that shot was indeed a genre highlight

2014 is still IMO, the best of the western Godzilla films, with GvK after it. Treating it like a disaster film was genius, as was Edward's shot choices for showing off the absolute scale.

Was sick to see the opening GvK credits be a rehash of 2014's, too. Little bits like that link them together. Also, there's a third, unaccounted for, Ghidorah skull out there somewhere. Any possibly a fourth - didn't he regen at least one?

I just finished watching the 2014 UHD. Looks great. Movie is still good even if I prefer KOTM.

Cranston Dad and Wolf Dad are the same character though and its kinda funny. Cranston is just a far superior actor and he dies in the first act. Both are 'grieving white dad who is smarter than everyone else with superior understanding of bioacoustics and how they relate to the Titans.'
