    Finally Godzilla not a Beast from 20,000 Fathoms remake



    Yes, it is Legendary pictures. Yes, I know the story might be mediocre to terrible, but damn their movies are pretty and that's all I want. Big time Godzilla CGI with our skills and know how. I am finally getting my wish.

    No, the remake of Beast from 20,000 Fathoms named "Godzilla" doesn't count.

    Know quite a few people who worked on that, looking forward to it.

      Damn it, I'd have flown out there to be an extra. I hope it does well enough they make sequel, I'll find a way to be in it.

        Scrolling through the comments to see how many ten-year-olds just think this is just a ripoff of Pacific Rim and/or Cloverfield.

          As long as it looks like Godzilla and not a damn Velociraptor.

              Saw the trailer in my Facebook feed. Damn, this looks awesome. I'm hoping it spawns an entire series of sequels.

                Honestly, I was hoping for an extended version of this one.

                  Sadly, I'm still researching to see how much of a difference there is in details.
                  I thought I spelled it wrong, but as I said I'm a mechanic not an English professor.

                    I recall hearing, in the dim days of my youth, that Ray Bradbury's lonely-plesiosaur-wrecks-a-lighthouse tale, entitled The Foghorn, was the inspiration for Beast From 20,000 fathoms and then the first Godzilla.

                      That's true for The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms but I'm not sure how much influence it had on the first Godzilla. Beast may have influenced Godzilla more than The Foghorn but I couldn't swear to that.

                        Indeed, upon reflection, I recall reading that Foghorn was the inspiration for Beast, which in turn was the inspiration for Gojira. Apparently, the initial idea for the Japanese monster was something more aquatic--perhaps a giant cephalopod--before its makers checked out Beast and decided on a reptile.

                        Bradbury had weird ideas about the size of prehistoric reptiles: a plesiosaur that could flatten a lighthouse and, in another dino-tale entitled A Sound Of Thunder, a reference to a carnosaur that "towered thirty feet taller than some of the trees".

                          Damn, and I just sold a copy of the 1970's Marvel Comics Godzilla #1 for $35. If I knew there was a remake coming out I would have held onto it for a couple of months to see if the price increased a bit.
                          On that note, there is another #1 which was released by Dark Horse in the 80's with B&W art; it still guides at a low price but I would grab it if you see it. Its harder to find and there is also an Alan Moore pin-up in the issue - which makes it a little more sought after. I put a copy of that one in the store as well and it got snapped up in less than two days even though I priced it well above guide.
