Godzilla: King of the Monsters
is gonna have a big Comic-Con presentation this weekend. Would not be surprised if the presentation includes a lot on the follow up Godzilla Vs. Kong
and major announcements of what/if Warner Brothers has any plans after that film.
The minute of footage dropped online is less of a trailer & more of a “get hype” announcement.
In other news, yes I have a sickness and watched the second entry in the anime trilogy, Godzilla: City On the Edge of Battle
, that is now available for streaming on Netflix. Yeah it’s shit like the first one - it might even be worse - but I got to sit down and drink three beers while it played out so there’s that.
You know what the most impressive thing about the film is?
Besides the fact that literally half the movie is people prattling on about “Nanometal” the much marketed MechaGodzilla isn’t even in the movie. I don’t mean that they tease MechaGodzilla for the final film - like I thought they did - but I mean they literally don’t do more than give the thing a casual mention. I believe MechaGodzilla is in more of the first film than it is here. You certainly get more MechaGodzilla in Spielberg’s Ready Player One than you do in the movie whose first poster was literally the character in question. So far I’d say the bold lie of the marketing is the most impressive thing about the films so far. Seeing as how the post-credit teaser for this movie is one fat trailer for a limp “Yeah, we’re bringing in King Ghidorah” reveal I’d almost applaud them if they just didn’t to fuck with people more.
Ultimately this anime “trilogy” (clearly the writer was commissioned to write a script for one movie & that was later stretched out into three
) is a train wreck. I don’t know why I continued but I did and I will suffer through the last one next January I’m sure.
