You can't really separate the titular beast from his origins as a uniquely Japanese metaphor, and some unofficial images from the set of next year's Godzilla indicate that the remake won't try to completely remove Gojira from his native country.
As of today, the second crack at an Americanized Godzilla remake is now one year away from its May 16, 2014 release date.
Rather than dropping a teaser trailer or some such hype-building, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have instead brought us a tiny new glimpse behind the scenes of this new Godzilla.
Principal photography on Godzilla is now under way.
The latest screenwriter to tackle Godzilla, Frank Darabont, is sharing some insight on his approach to the big budget remake, indicating that this Godzilla will restore the fearsome characteristic to the giant, city destroying lizard, as well as its allegorical elements.
After becoming a hugely-discussed home for transcendent televised drama series with Mad Men and Breaking Bad, cable network AMC surprised a whole lot of people The Walking Dead, a large-scale apocalyptic zombie tale based on the comic book by Robert Kirkman. Despite initial trepidation from many potential viewers, the series premiere dropped last Halloween to huge ratings and widespread acclaim. Directed by showrunner and The Shawshank Redemption helmer Frank Darabont, the premiere boasted the polish and sophistication of any feature film, and the bonus features included on the impending Blu-ray and DVD release of the first season provide insight into the production.
A behind-the-scenes clip entitled 'We Are the Walking Dead' has made its way online, and it shows Darabont appraising an under-construction Abrams tank interior, as well as KNB Effects mastermind and consulting producer Greg Nicotero showing off the tremendous varieties of corpses. There's even a look at "zombie school."
As moviegoers, we're generally inclined towards simply having a good time and spending two hours working up to a happy ending. Some films, however, take a more difficult and arguably more rewarding approach, dragging their audiences into despair and back in order to dole out a sliver of hope to nourish our battered psyches.
In the acutely-observed new drama Beautiful Boy, for example, Maria Bello and Michael Sheen play a shattered couple in the aftermath of their son's school shooting rampage. While it is appropriately depressing, it also provides the faith that, eventually, its characters can and will recover. Today, we're happy to present ten recent films that, like Beautiful Boy, dare to devastate, which makes their ultimate hopefulness that much more meangingful.
Stephen King is the most popular horror novelist on the planet, and the first season of AMC's highly watchable zombie series The Walking Dead featured some uneven writing, so how better to spice things up than to have King write an episode of the show's second season? It makes sense, as the author has an established relationship with The Walking Dead showrunner Frank Darabont, who adapted King's The Shawshank Redemption and The Mist for film.
The Walking Dead are among us! And it seems that people are pretty darn excited about it. The AMC’s 90-minute series premiere of "The Walking Dead" kicked all sorts of butt on Halloween night.
