hahaha, TDK reference was funny. Yeah, I'm not sure. Aside from the [SPOILER]
Nautilus falls line in the draft sheet which leaked months ago, I don't see Godzilla dying. Hybernation is definitely an option. Perhaps they try bombing him after they submerge him in one of the giant sinkholes?
I'm also not keen on the Baby Godzilla concept. I would much rather them explain that there are pockets under the Earth that contain sparse echosystems, which contain massive, prehistoric creatures, and that Godzilla is one of a few different types. That would set up both Godzilla for a sequel AND an origin for any future Monsters.

Indeed, I hope it doesn't reveal too much though. I like there to remain some mysteries by the end of the film. Something we can wonder about and debate on until the sequel(s) come around. Contrary to modern movie-goers, I don't want to be spoon fed all the answers. I want to think and use my imagination. It's what makes film so powerful and so memorable.
Feb-26-2014 11:24 PM
I rarely run with script leaks for news. I'm going to hold off for now, but it looks neat. I especially like the second "leak", the story about the snake and mouse, adds a creepy factor. I hope these are legit!
Feb-25-2014 12:21 AM
You know, you're the second person to have said that the MUTO are modernized classic Monsters, and Gigan, Megalon and Kamacuras were also hinted a by the last person to reveal they had some inside info. Many here scoffed at the idea, claiming BS, but you know I'm not gonna be so quick to deny it.
I spoke to the GM at my local theater and he said they just got a new Godzilla trailer like this past week. Aside from that he didn't know much though unfortunately.
I expect the atomic breath might be like how it was in the 1954 original, not so much a straight beem, but more so like a ray of atomic heat, which disperses as it's released. Either way it sounds great!
We know so far that quite a few private screenings have been held, Slash even commented after seeing an early version. Said it was badass and epic.
Do I think you're making this up? Naw, I'll give any idea a go and it would certainly be pretty sweet if you were right. It would also tie in nicely to Edwards' plans to make a "Destroy All Monsters" sequel. I'd pay mad money to see that.
Feb-24-2014 10:54 PM
Yeah, nobody's been banned here for joking around. You have to be a real ass hat to get banned from here. Haha
Feb-24-2014 10:39 PM
quote: this is the kind of shit that gets this site eye rolled by some other communities, of course it isnt anything to do with 98 zilla, also because 15 years ago wasnt 1998, it was 1999
@Junkerde, Jeeze man, it's a joke, hahaha. XD
With all the trolling people have done to us, I think I'm within my rights to have some fun with this. Haha Those taking this seriously, come on. It's just a funny coincidence.
Feb-24-2014 7:44 PM
Well, nobody knows when Cranston's speech is given, it could've been given in 2013 (which is also when they woudl've actually recorded it). Which would line the dates up perfectly.
Feb-24-2014 7:42 PM
I know, just thought it was a funny coincidence, hahaha. I knew it would ruffle some feathers. ;D
Feb-24-2014 7:35 PM
If the two are connected in some way, it would certainly draw some attention and consideration for this scene in the Godzilla (2014) teaser trailer:
... which closely ressembles this scene from Godzilla '98:
Feb-23-2014 9:51 PM
@Madison - that was the Japanese trailer with the Serizawa footage, not the International trailer.
International trailers normally just promote alternate release dates, which this one does.
Feb-22-2014 4:28 PM
Tough question. I really liked Hoth, but I think Tatooine was more "fun" to "visit" in the films due to the diversity in Aliens and cultures, etc... It's the first planet I think of when anyone mentions Star Wars. So, I'm gonna go with Tatooine. :)
Feb-22-2014 4:01 PM
Godzilla is the incarnation of Nature's fury. He probably symbolizes the sadness of how we as a species continue to hurt the world we live in as well as those around us. I expect there to be many subliminal messages throughout this film, not just another apocalyptic Monster flick.
Feb-22-2014 3:57 PM
I think Legendary knows that they're doing. We've seen a new poster 2 days ago now, it's bound to head up more. Legendary even updated their Facebook page to promote Godzilla more than 300. I expect we'll be seeing a new trailer within 1 or 2 weeks which will set the net ablaze. Remember, the first Godzilla trailer raked in the most views in a 3 day span than any other movie this year. It's clear people are eager to see this movie, which would also explain why the marketing doesn't need to be so rigorous. I realize in the past I suggested the marketing should be more "in your face", but ultimately I think the film will perform well. It's bringing the King of the Monsters back to the big screen after 10 years!
I expect a similar turn out as Pacific Rim. Not a solid hit in the US, but a significant chunk of success from overseas. People say Pacific Rim was a flop, but in actuality, when you factor in the global box office earnings, it was a great hit!
Spider-Man and X-Men are guaranteed hits because they've been making films for them for years. The North American market know what they're getting and know what to expect. Also both are sequels. Will they make more than Godzilla? Yeah, probably. But I don't think Legendary would "throw Godzilla under the bus" for a more secured success for The Hobbit. Legendary isn't even part of WB anymore, and they worked their asses off to secure the license to Godzilla.
Have faith guys, they know what they're doing.
Feb-22-2014 3:27 AM
Yeah, we'll be trying to keep the reviews to our "Reviews" section on Scified, for Godzilla, which can be found at: http://www.scified.com/movie/godzilla-2014. Once the movie is out, the option to Rate & Review will become available.
Going to try to keep as many reviews off the forums as possible, so we can also minimize early spoilers. Plus the reviews will not spoil anything in the titles, since only the body text is previewed and you need to manually click to read the entire thing. Much better system for reviewing than the forums.
Feb-21-2014 5:50 PM
Great stuff, thanks for the link! :)
Feb-21-2014 5:48 PM
Back when Prometheus was released, I developed an automated spoiler warning system which would post a big spoiler warning on topics for those wishing to avoid such things. But the Staff and now Moderators will be working to try to keep spoilers to a minimum.
Basically, no spoiler content revealed in the title, for example (not a real spoiler): "The MUTO is actually Baragon!!" - A topic like that would need to be censored and the staff here reserve the right to do so as a courtesy to those who don't see the film on opening night.
Don't worry, we'll be keeping a lock down on spoilers. ;) At least for the first 2 weeks. Then, if you haven't seen Godzilla after 2 weeks, you're gonna have to endure some spoilers, hahaha.
Feb-20-2014 10:36 PM
I'm baffled anyone can still complain after the badass poster they released today. Honestly, have some faith and stop bitching. I'm not saying that to be rude, I'm saying that in hopes that it will force you (and anyone else complaining) to give your heads a shake. The marketing is just heating up, sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
Feb-19-2014 8:16 PM
And StarWarsEpisode7.com is definitely NOT the official site.
Feb-19-2014 8:02 PM
The going rumor is that all three are to return for Episode VII and kind of "pass the torch" off to whoever plays their childre for the remaining sequels. However no concrete evidence has been released to support these claims, only word-of-mouth at this point.
Feb-18-2014 9:27 PM
What if the cavern wasn't even built by the Jockeys...? What if the Derelict landed on LV-426 for whatever reason, whether it crashed or not, and happened to land on top of another Alien structure, which housed the Alien eggs? We saw no type of similar "barrier sheild" in the Juggernaut from Prometheus. Remember too, the Alien was put up on a mural in one of the rooms in the temple on LV_223. I've said it before and many others agree, the "Xenomorph" could be regarded as the higher being, or the blueprint to whatever the Engineers were working on in their facility on LV_223.
Perhaps the beings which created the Engineers, originally created the Xenomorphs and stashed them across the galaxy, along with other "perfect" organisms and as a result of their discovery by the Engineers, they attempted to mimic the power of creating and altering life, much like scientists do today.
More over, I think the Alien organism itself is the goal for the Engineers and the main purpose for their testing on LV_223 and probably many other installations. They probably used LV_223 due to it being close to the LV-426, offering easy recon of samples from LV-426 to further their testing and studies.
Notice the Urns, similar to eggs, but lacking the 100% organic nature. The Engineers managed to understand some of the secrets hidden in the creation/alteration of life, but obviously created an unstable product. Much like Humanity in this Universe, creating the Android to mimic the creation of life.
I think it's the same issue just on a whole other level. The truth and the message I believe Prometheus and Ridley Scott are trying to convey is - we will never achieve such a feat as the creation of true life. We might be able to alter life, mutate it, even create intellegence, but no matter how hard we try, we will never be able to unlock the key to creating a Soul - which was a main point Weyland brought up in his "holographic speech". David will never have a soul he says. To further add, the Xenomorphs, since they have no eyes - and they say "the eyes are the window into the soul" - leads me to believe that the Xenomorphs themselves were a "false" creation and thus could "live" but would never have a "soul". Not "true" life.
Prometheus will never answer the question of who created us and it will never show "God" - it can't. But it will insinuate that the same challenges we face today will remain a challenge forever, and remind us that there are universal challenges which we will never be abe to explain or exploit.
Feb-18-2014 1:51 PM
Thanks InstinctiveGigan! Yeah, you could vaguely make out all the new merchandise from the banners we saw from that one photo of the display I just reported about. NECA is really planning to bank on Godzilla!
Feb-16-2014 2:50 PM
It is the code name for it, yes. Can you provide a link to the reddit discussion? I generally would prefer not to source news from Reddit as it's about as reliable as IMDB when it comes to scoops and rumors. However, considering production has begun, it's likely this could be an early look at an obvious Dino-cage.
If you couldprovide a source link, that'd be awesome.
Feb-15-2014 4:07 PM
This is kind of getting old now to be honest. Yeah I've posted speculative articles on our news section, because all speculative posts were a result of having some actual, solid information to go by. The troll video was the ONLY post which I jumped the gun on and took a gamble with. Sometimes when you gamble, you lose.
People saying "we deserve to be slammed" clearly don't visit many other entertainment websites. Speculative articles are a MUST as it engages thought and discussion - the sole purpose of this network. I have never posted a speculative article without the support of legitimate information to back up the speculation. I have not once randomly posted a thought of mine without the accompanyment of actual news to help fuel the speculation.
I am aware of Rob and his videos. Unfortunately he has been misinformed about a few details regarding our website when promoting his opinions. I find it unfortunate that someone would profit from slandering other websites and people who are trying to hype this film as much as possible, but he is entitled to his opinions just as everyone else is.
We posted one false story and I even took it down so it can no longer generate traffic. It's gone. Aside from that one mess up, we've had a solid track record as a news & entertainment website. Clearly people like what we have to say otherwise we wouldn't have new users signing up on a daily basis.
And finally, we're Godzilla-Movies.com NOT "GodzillaMovieNews" or "GodzillaNews.com". Just Godzilla-Movies. Don't get our domains mixed up with someone who might run another Godzilla website with one of those domains. That's not fair to them.
Feb-15-2014 2:10 AM
These are the main points from the article linked:
Sounds neat for sure! Will work on a front page story for this.
Thanks for the link and the news!
Feb-15-2014 1:51 AM
Beyond thrilled to know that this was a success! :) Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word.
Feb-15-2014 12:47 AM
I don't care what you say, I'm not switching over to Dish... XD
Feb-14-2014 11:26 PM
There is no "war" going on. It's pointless drama for the sole purpose of gaining attention. Those who let such drama affect them need to (not to sound blunt) get a life. Seriously, not trying to be mean to anyone on here or out there, who got caught up in it all, but really in the grand scheme of life, it's pointless and immature.
As for the Lebanese site - nobody knows. Again, pointless to get worked up over.
And, debating the trailer release date is just as pointless, since we'll be getting a new one any time. We just need to be patient and not waste time contributing to senseless drama.
But to clarify, I am not a part of, or contributing to, any petty "internet/site war". I've got more important things to worry about.
Feb-13-2014 11:49 PM
Those do look pretty funny, though the second plate offers a new angle of Godzilla - showing off a more scaley chest. I won't say these are the real deal just yet, but I would never expect party plates to present something amazing, they're disposable plates after all. So they could actually be a real product. The first one looks pretty photoshopped though, I will admit that, haha.
Feb-13-2014 10:02 PM
The trans-fat free Lasagna was pretty funny, hahaha thanks for sharing this Svanya!
Feb-13-2014 9:54 PM
Anybody else notice the M577 Armored Carrier Transport vehicle from Aliens in the bottom left of the image BigDave posted? I can totally see this being the crashed ship from the beginning of Prometheus, without a doubt. I hope the sequels shed more light on the two factions of Engineers (if there are) and why the Engineers looked so different at the start of Prometheus than they did at the end.
Feb-13-2014 4:25 PM
Unreal! Can't believe how good these look, keep up the great work!
Feb-13-2014 4:23 PM
Awesome! Not that I had any doubts, but this just further confirms that Legendary is the right Studio to helm a Godzilla reboot. All the power to them!
Feb-13-2014 1:14 AM
Love seeing the amount of support this is getting. :) Really great, thanks everyone!
Feb-12-2014 9:05 PM
Hope he continues to get well! As soon as I'm back on my Laptop I'll feature this on our Facebook page to give you as much coverage as possible. My prayers go out to Maddex!
Feb-12-2014 8:39 PM
I think all this hoax has done is bring out the true fans of this community and shown who the true trolls are. I'm flattered by your posts and I want to say thank you. I think this is the top Godzilla site on the net, not for how many hits we get or how many Facebook likes we have - but because of the users we have - all of you, the members.
It's like, this forum has filtered out the douchebags from other forums and we're only left with the true, level-headed fans to engage with - and I couldn't ask for anything more.
So thank you, for the support and for helping make this site all that it was ever intended to be - a positive coimmunity. Thank you.
Feb-12-2014 4:00 PM
I unlocked this for a moment just to point out that the toy images were legit, I have emails from Legendary and WB and Bandai asking me to remove them and for the record, we never posted any of the (hilariously fake) scripts on our news section. The only thing we've faulted on was a very convincing video clip which 99% of the fan base fell for, including myself. You're 14, like you said, you've got a lot to learn about the internet and more specifically the difference between a FAN site and an OFFICIAL site. And the argument of "people don't know you're a fansite" is bullshit. No sympathy for people who can't read.
But okay, back to locking this up.
Feb-12-2014 3:42 PM
Again, this has been discussed to exhaustion. No need really for a new topic about this. Most of us have moved on, as others have said - there will always be trolls and we'll always have moments where we make mistakes. We laugh it off, move on and improve from it. Let's cut it with the repeat topics now please.
Feb-11-2014 12:54 AM
This is a topic that has been discussed to exhaustion. Nobody knows for sure. A few sites have claimed the 14th, but as of late that info may have been misinterpreted, and in fact the trailer might have been set to be "completed" by the 14th and released at a later time. But nobody knows. There reallyis little point to discuss it also, since regardless of dates a new trailer is on the way and soon, the film itself will be released. So, I say just be patient and wait. Gonna lock this now though, as it's a repeat of many existing topics.
Feb-10-2014 9:23 PM
@Jazmyne - I completely agree. It's the stupidest thing. We're not selling opposing products in the same market, half the sites share memberships and readerships anyways. It's ridiculous and yes, extremely childish.
And yes, I wish I could code mandatory grammar fixes, hahaha. Spelling too.
@DragonlordTevin - Sure I can understand having a bad day, but I mean it looked kind of ironic when comparing your statements here. But I'll take your word for it and forget about the remarks in light of the hopeful reconciliation people are pursuing in this thread. So, it's all good.
But one thing I will add, is please stop the senseless bickering with Kyero, that's just as childish as any cross-site feuds. Be respectful and constructive (this goes to everyone) - that's how this community will thrive and stay alive and attract new members. Simple rules we all learned when we were very young - don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Great rule to live by.
Feb-10-2014 4:23 PM
Well, a Godzilla film without destruction would be rather disappointing, no? haha, but thanks for sharing! Always good to hear of actors praising their films. Really looking forward to some mind-blowing destruction and visuals.
Feb-10-2014 3:40 PM
@Akio123, Yeah I agree the combat needs to stop, haha. My last reply to this is an attempt to iron out the last few kinks in this whole mess and see who wants to stay here and who doesn't.
