Take out the opening skydive, and this looks like it's making all the same mistakes as the '98 version. Bleh.

This new film is suppose to have two other monsters in it. The director of Hedorah (smog monster) is one of the producers as well. So hopefully it'll be nothing like the 98 film.

Oh yeah, I love Prometheus!

I liked it, bro.

...but I get what you're saying. I thought the link was going to take me to the dinosaur museum teaser where the foot comes down through the skylight. that one got me pretty excited way back when.

Yeah the 1998 trailer looked pretty dam good then & even now. Haven't seen the 98 version since the theaters 15 years ago. The trailer actually makes me want to watch it again now.

Is it just me or does it feel like this new Godzilla film has been in production for more than 5 years? For a film that's taken this long to make, it'll be tragic if it sucks.

I actually enjoyed it when I saw it at the theater. I bought the blu and have watched it 2 or 3 more times and like it more with each viewing.

If my mind serves me correctly, after "Final Wars" bombed, Toho put the franchise on hold. Yoshimitsu Banno, director of Smog Monster, was trying to get a 3D Godzilla film made. It went to various studios and eventually that turned into WB/Legendary deciding to team with Banno/Toho to just make a new series. So taken that into account, it's almost 10 years in the making! lol

Yeah, the Godzilla '98 trailer blew me away too...when I was 12. Watching it now there are some rather prominent red flags..."From the Creators of Independence Day" being the one that jumps out the most. The wretched CG foot stomping the taxi is another, and the final 10 seconds being a third.

As for Prometheus, its mediocrity wrapped in pretty packaging...which I guess can be said for most of Ridley Scott's filmography.

That 98 trailer still looks like fun, except I can't help but recall what does happen and how the film doesn't even come close to living up to it. Then I recall the baby Godzillas and go puke. There's nothing that says for sure there are not baby Godzillas in this new one! Wasn't expecting them in 98, wished they never existed and a better movie did ever since.

Considering all the flack the Broderick film took with how Godzilla was too fast and didn't breathe fire, it's hard to believe that they'd make the same mistake twice.

So I'm sure that they'll come up with all new mistakes this go around.

And for what it's worth, I didn't mind the baby Godzillas. They were far more preferable to Minya.

The reason the "baby" godzillas were in that 1998 film was because of the popularity of Jurassic Park's velociraptors. And nobody is gonna tell me different.

No raptors in JP = No baby godzilla's in 1998.

Skydiving is such a current trend in movies and TV commercials. I hate it as much as I hate the three-point-landing that's in everything.
There looks to be a human element that's being argued in favor of on the boards of the IMDB (be a nay-sayer and you will be viciously attacked). However, like the 90's version the human element in American action films are always so cookie-cutter.
Anyway, let's hope this is better than that '98 movie which should have been called Camera Shy Mutation Goes on a Rampage But Not Really Since It's Just Misplaced and /or Misunderstood. Gah!!! To HELL with the monster sympathy - give us a monster that rampages and destructs because it hates humans!

There is no denying Godzilla '98 relied heavily on Jurassic Park's success. But it failed on every conceivable level that Jurassic Park exceeded at.

Just take the CGI for example...Jurassic Park was made in '93. Those computer graphics COMBINED with animatronics/practical effects blended seamlessly. The effects to this day are still championed. Now compare the Tyrannosaurus' foot crushing the Ford Explorer to Godzilla 98's "Flying Circus"-esque foot splat on the car, and you can get a clear glimpse of just the type of caliber the rest of the film is going to be.

Baby Godzilla's are not even needed in the trailer to know the film is going to be utter shite.

For some reason I try to watch Godzilla '98 at least once a year out of shear nostalgia, but I usually end up shutting it off 30min in. It's just way to horrendous.
