‘Godzilla’ Made $107 MM This Weekend, So There Will Be A Sequel http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/godzilla-made-107-mm-this-weekend-so-there-will-be-a-sequel/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/godzilla-made-107-mm-this-weekend-so-there-will-be-a-sequel/#comments Mon, 19 May 2014 17:03:58 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=261726 In the name of art.

The post ‘Godzilla’ Made $107 MM This Weekend, So There Will Be A Sequel appeared first on Screen Junkies.

It’s become a standard (and hilarious) practice for a studio to announce the day after a big opening weekend that there will be a sequel. I’m sure there’s some marketing consideration to it, like people will be more inclined to go if they know it will continue in the future, but it’s easy to chalk it up to execs being impulsive, impatient, and money hungry.

Both are probably true.

On that note, Godzilla is getting a sequel after having pulled in $107 million worldwide and garnering not-that-bad reviews. My theory? People just really miss Breaking Bad still and will pay to see Cranston wherever they can.

As for the premise, the whole initiative is about four hours old, so there isn’t a script, but it’s likely they’ll go back to the well of existing Godzilla characters, as there was an Easter egg in the film that shows an empty aquarium with “Mothra” written on it.

So, see ya summer 2016?

Until this point, Godzilla trailers have mostly been a lot of Bryan Cranston yelling but that doesn’t put butts in seats in Asia. So for the Godzilla trailer released in Asia, the marketing department gives the people what they want — giant monsters and the inference that they are going to fight. And more Ken Watanabe (he’s like the Bryan Cranston of Asia).

This is our first real look at Godzilla‘s opponent, MUTO (outside of toy form), which appears to be some kind of pterodactyl with radioactive hook arms. Which means it was either conceived by a six-year old or a really high person.

When watching the most recent Godzilla trailer, you might have noticed some monster parts that didn’t look familiar. Turns out that, yes, Godzilla will feature a second monster. Pictures of the film’s toy-line have arrived online that feature the giant monster bat thing that Godzilla will inevitably pick up and throw into skyscrapers as if people don’t live and store all of their shit there. Can’t you two go fight in a giant field or something?

Sadly, there are no Juliette Binoche action figures so thank god you didn’t sell off your Dan in Real Life playset. I highly recommend you peruse the Godzilla licensed product guide. This thing is packed with treasure. Like this sweet baby.

Can I put this image on my checks?

If you’ve been watching the last few Godzilla trailers, you know that Bryan Cranston seems to hate the crap out of the giant monster. The latest, extended trailer fills in the gaps to explain the Cranston-Godzilla beef. You see, it seems that Godzilla forced Cranston to have to kill his own wife. Talk about bad first impressions. That would cheese me off too.

Team Cranston! Even though he’s being a bit of a hypocrite here.

You’d think that Godzilla, the gigantic, nuclear lizard prone to leaving paths of destruction after stomping through major cities, would be considered high profile. According to the latest trailer, its really good at hiding in water and clouds and plumes of smoke. Like the Waldo of monsters.

This being the first trailer for Gareth Edwards‘s Godzilla, we see very little of the monster. We do, however, see mankind rallying to deal with the giant nuclear lizard threat. That effort somehow involves sky-diving at the monster while unarmed. I’m not sure how that subdues the beast.

Beyond that, we’re also treated to Godzilla‘s path of destruction and shocked reaction shots from Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and the only Japanese actor in Hollywood’s rolodex, Ken Watanabe.

After approximately one kajillion trailers, you probably think you’ve seen everything that a Pacific Rim trailer can strive to be. You are wrong and a dummy.

A fan re-crafted the trailer with the addition of Toho sound effects, theme music and Japanese dubbing, all in the style of classic Godzilla movies. And it’s amazing. More movies should look and sound this shitty!

Legendary Pictures has a Godzilla film coming out in May of 2014, so when the Godzilla Encounter popped up in the Gaslamp District of San Diego during Comic-Con, no one really thought it was just a nice gesture.

It’s marketing. Fun, delicious, delightful marketing.

So if you’re in San Diego, and find yourself wandering around the Gaslamp District, feel free to stick your head in to check out the graffitti, wreckage, and displays walking through the history of the Godzilla film saga.

But for God’s sake, just don’t piss that monster off. I’ve seen it take out bigger towns than San Diego just for the fun of it.

Now that he’s no longer showrunner of one of the most talked-about TV shows of all time, Mr. Frank Darabont has found a little bit of time on his hands. So he’s going where he’s needed, and right now, that appears to be to the script of the upcoming Godzilla remake/sequel/reboot/whatever.

While Darabont’s presence may excite fans of his work, the fact that this thing was supposed to start shooting in March (and still is) means, a) They are making a good project even better with Darabont’s help, or b) they’re completely screwed and through a half-finished script at Darabont while screaming “HELP!”

We hate to be cynical, but we also hate being wrong, and with the last iteration of Godzilla still stinking up the joint, we’re inclined to believe it’s the latter and not the former.

The post Animals On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
The day that we’ve long-feared has arrived. Uggie is officially retired. It’s incredibly rare for a performer to lift themselves up from nothing and capture the hearts of the world in such a short span of time, but that exactly what the canine star of The Artist did. Only to flame out when a mystery illness rendered him all wiggly and weird.

But as he did with everything, Uggie retired in style. His short-lived career was honored and his celebrity immortalized outside of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre yesterday when he imprinted his paws in cement on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame. No reports as to whether or not he later took a whiz on it.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is best known for featuring the handprints of celluloid heroes like Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak, cinema’s Clint Eastwood, and inventor of the motion picture, Thomas Edison. And now Uggie. But he’s not the only animal to be honored in such a way. In fact, he’s not even the only dog. Below is a list of the screen legends that Uggie can now count his name amongst. They’re all very cute.

Strongheart

Perhaps the inspiration for Uggie’s character in The Artist, Strongheart was an actual canine star from the Silent Film era. Born Etzel von Oeringen, the former German police dog was brought to the United States by husband and wife filmmaking team Laurence Trimble and Jane Murfin. After adopting the slighty less German-sounding stage name, Strongheart went on to star in six films including a 1925 adaptation of White Fang and The Return of Boston Blackie.

Of course, in his later years von Oeringen found himself embroiled in controversy when falsely accused to trying to eat a little girl. The charges where later dropped and the performer’s good name was cleared. However, the taste of this victory would not last very long. One year later, Strongheart was burned after accidentally touching a hot studio light while on set. These injuries formed a tumor that would claim the animal actor’s life. “God bless you Strongheart, God bless you”, said his owner while eulogizing the star. God bless, indeed.

Rin Tin Tin

A former soldier, Rin Tin Tin was a German Shepherd adopted from a World War I battefield who went on to star in twenty-three Hollywood films. To provide you some perspective, he has more feature credits than Michael Fassbender, and the guy seems to be everywhere.

Proving an adeptness for tricks and high jumps, Rin Tin Tin (or Rinty) moved to Los Angeles to pursue his owner’s dream of making him the next Strongheart. While performing at a dog show, Rin Tin Tin was filmed in slow-motion leaping eleven feet into the air. The rest is history when he was cast as a wolf in Where the North Begins, a film so successful it is credited with saving Warner Bros from bankruptcy. If not for heroes like Rin Tin Tin, we wouldn’t have films like The Dark Knight and Happy Feet Two. So, show some damn respect.

Lassie

As the most famous of all animal actors, it’s no surprise that Lassie has her paws forever frozen on Hollywood’s famous sidewalk. None for feats of bravery, child rescue, and a smooth, shiney coat, the famed collie dog enjoyed success across film, radio, print, and television. All that and the ability to lick her own butt. Truly a dynamo.

Godzilla

Currently the only monster on the Hollywood Walk of Fame besides Tom Hanks (he knows what he did), Godzilla earned his star after becoming a global phenomenon. Also, after representatives for Godzilla paid the $30,000 fee required to sponsor a square on the sidewalk.

Kermit

The Muppets‘ frontfrog was honored with the 2,208th star on the Walk of Fame back in 2002. Appearing to share their admiration for the amphibious everyman were members of the Henson Family and David Arquette. A perhaps-bitter Elmo was not in attendance.

Big Bird

Sesame Street’s giant, fey bird has the distinction of being the first Muppet to receive their star. As mentioned above, Kermit the Frog was the second to cement their memory in the annals of history. However, in 2010, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced that the entire Muppets cast were to receive a star. The after-party was probably friggin’ insane.

This video game adaptation…doesn’t piss me off.

It would appear the NES/PC hit video game Rampage is getting adapted to a live–action film (albeit one that probably has a ton of CGI). For those young pups out there, Rampage was a simplistic, one-screen video game in the late-80′s that allowed the player to take on the role of Godzilla and destroy cities, swat down helicopters, and eat people. That was it. There was no greater good, and your reward for doing it well was getting to do it again, but this at night.

Simpler times.

This immediately appeals to me in a way that Starship Troopers appeals to me. Easy on the plot, just show some giant animals (that in the game are actually mutated humans) messing stuff up. There’s also a great opportunity here for celebrities to cameo for a second or two before they get eaten.

My only stipulation is that Elijah Wood and Ed Harris both get eaten while naked. It’s a fantasy I have.

David Goyer just got an awesome assignment. The Dark Knight Rises and Man Of Steel writer will pen Legendary Pictures‘ new version of Godzilla. Plot details are under wraps but I imagine lots of screaming and running. And maybe there will be other monsters for Big G to chest-bump.

Monsters director Gareth Edwards is also attached which could be really good news. He could be just the director to help us get inside the head of Godzilla and see what makes him tick. He must have dreams. Dreams that don’t involve throwing buildings and orphanages. (Deadline)

Directors McG and Gareth Edwards

Left: Gareth Edwards - Right: Beelzebub

Good news for people who love terrifying monsters: McG is back. Oh, and so is Monsters director Gareth Edwards.

McG is set to direct Ouija, a film based on the supernatural-themed board game produced by Hasbro. If you think that’s a stupid idea, don’t mention it to Universal Pictures. It’s the studio’s second boardgame-based production, with Battleship already well under way.

If that’s not your style, perhaps Gareth Edwards can interest you in a reboot of the Godzilla franchise. The director is reportedly on board to write and direct the project for Warner Bros.

While these projects might not be the most original in the world, they do allow me to point out that Hollywood is all out of ideas, which marks the 214th time I’ve done so since I began working for ScreenJunkies back in June of 2009. That fact might make it seem like I’m not very original, myself. But as the rapper once said, don’t hate the player, hate the game…the game of Ouija. (Source: Latino Review 1 and 2)
