One of the Greatest Film Images Of All Time! Staggeringly Awesome!

Hey folks, Harry here... now the following image will do one of two things to you. It will either give you a kaiju erection large enough to destroy downtown Chicago with a might hip twist... OR... You have no soul and occupy that body of yours like the metallic slug creatures from DESTROY ALL MONSTERS - with fake inhuman smiles and yet are false through and through, scared of the dark cold places to which you'll inevitably find yourself spending eternity.







The image came to me from Matthew of MonsterIslandMedia.Com - a man who has obviously dedicated himself like monks in the dark ages copying by hand the word of god upon illuminated pages... now he details the images and words of GODZILLA! Yes... we each have a higher calling, but Matthew has the highest!

TOHO is so giving GODZILLA the right send off... by combining the fantastically cool visual talent and inventiveness of Ryuhei Kitamura (VERSUS, AZUMI) with the largest budget and most audacious line up of monsters in the history of Kaiju Cinema... well - it is my prediction that this film will destroy BEN HUR and RETURN OF THE KING's Oscar Record and sweep up 12! This is obviously the greatest film of all time... How do I know? Well, the premiere of the movie in Japan is on DECEMBER 11TH... My Birthday! This can not be a happenstance... it means cosmic things! It means greatness! It means canceling Butt-Numb-A-Thon and flying to Tokyo! It means joining a Kaiju Kult! As Weird Al once said, "This Means Something!"

    Second and has Harry got his head screwed on or what?

    by Mendes

    WOW what a pic. The story of Godzilla has never been done justice, even in the crappy but cool originals. Now at last it could be upon us. BRACE YOURSELF, FOOL...

  • May 25, 2004, 5:44 a.m. CST

    Thanks Harry

    Cool wallpaper for my computer at work.

    I have a strange love of men in rubber suits that has nothing to do with sex....mostly

    You're kidding right?!?!

    by morty67

    "well - it is my prediction that this film will destroy BEN HUR and RETURN OF THE KING's Oscar Record and sweep up 12!" As good as any Godzilla movie is, it won't pull 12 Oscars. Lay off the cough syrup Harry!

    headgeek, you forgot Godzilla sinking Titanic

    by FD Resurrected

    I actually expected a visual effect sneak shot of Battle Angel Alita. Cool image, though. Can't say I'm a big Godzilla fan, though I hope the new Godzilla print is comin' to my town. We should purge the hideous Godzilla 1998 moive from our memory...

  • May 25, 2004, 6:19 a.m. CST

    Fat guys are the new cool, pt 3.

    by BurnHollywood

    I rest my case...in this image, we see that Toho has chosen to fatten up Godzilla for an upcoming release, probably to increase ticket sales amongst the ladies. When it comes to tubby drawing power, even species knows no bounds...SCREW ATKINS. Have seconds and HIT THE CLUBS.

  • May 25, 2004, 6:49 a.m. CST

    DID HE FART???

    by JDanielP

  • May 25, 2004, 6:52 a.m. CST

    I guess that's what happens after he eats the local Taco Bell.

    GREAT BUT-- WHAT IS IT?

    by jmtoyzilla

    A preporoduction painting? Fan art? Can we have a LITTLE journalism, please?!?!?!?

  • May 25, 2004, 7:41 a.m. CST

    wow, Harry, that is a cool image.

    by The Killer-Goat

    Windmills running through my head. The "rubber suit" never had it so good. Any cast names? Can we get a link for a synopsis? And for the whiners complaining about the big schpeal for a Godzilla news posting: um, you guys are kidding, right? I mean, you've been to this site often enough to have picked up on Harry's overpowering obsession with all things 'Zilla, right? Yeah.

    Supposedly the production is shooting some footage (1st or 2nd unit I don't know) in Manhattan this June. Anyone hear anything?

    But will it be better than Godzilla X Mechagodzilla?

    by ninjrk-nit

    Seriously, that may be one of the best Godzilla films of them all and is currently my favorite. Special effects are excellent and the story actually matters. After the crapfest of GMK, I hope that this final one will go out on a high note. Actually, I really wish that some big name director could decide to just have fun and do one with cutting edge special effects. Use CGI for the big G and have the buildings have floors and plummeting occupants but not lose the essence of Godzilla, a big lizard who destroys cities and plods along. Don't make G a mother, don't have the inept military take out buildings. Have a 100 meter lizard trashing Tokyo with his feet and atomic breath while maser tanks get crunched underfoot. Throw in Anguirus and I'm happy. Matt

    So Godzilla had all those missing WMDs, makes sense.

    by Regicidal_Maniac

    People who don't like Godzilla are weird. Giant monster periodically rises out of the sea and destroys thecity, puny humans have to defeat him and drive him back using ever more rediculously contrived methods. What's not to like? Godzilla is the id monster inside us all. Oh by the way FOUR fart jokes already? TWO from the same guy? Your needles are skipping, change the record. They'll be filming some street scenes here in Sydney later this month or early next month, supposedly our city is doing double duty as both itself and New York. I aim to wander onto that set. Oh and uh get a new fucking server Harry.

    Holy Mother of God that's sugoi.

    by robogeek.com

    GOJIRA!!!

  • It's to the point where I dread even clicking on an article for fear it will take me ten minutes to view. The novelty of this joke was completely muted when it takes TWENTY MINUTES TO VIEW THE PICTURE. Why is it so hard? Are you that strapped for cash? PLEASE GET A NEW SERVER. It's embarrassing.

  • May 25, 2004, 3:41 p.m. CST

    that was REALLY disappointing

    by The Real McCoy

    That is a cool image but the headline built it up too much. I sat waiting for about five minutes for the damn page to load, expecting something truly awesome. And what did I get? The same Godzilla I've seen all my life, looking like he just farted on a CGI city. I like Godzilla but damn, Harry.

  • May 25, 2004, 4:07 p.m. CST

    Ryuhei Kitamura sucks

    by Doc_McCoy

    His short MESSENGER was kind of cool (though overly-stylized and pointless) but VERSUS was just a heaping pile of shit. Over-the-top Asian action at its very worst.

    "Take that, you dinosaur!"

    by NiceMarmot

    Am I the only one who laughs at the endless amounts of flak dumped on Emmerich's Godzilla, when every other Godzilla movie before and since has been equally as stupid? BTW, Harry needs to rename this site CouldNotConnectToRemoteServer.com. It's a more apt description of the site than anything relating to cool movie news.

  • May 25, 2004, 5:51 p.m. CST

    Must. Have. More. Info

    by lukeprog

    Okay, someone mentioned the image as a wallpaper. Where can we get this in wallpaper size? Also, what is the actual title of this movie, and where can I read more about it? I wasn't even aware of this movie until this very second, and now I'm totally hyped!

  • May 26, 2004, 1:33 a.m. CST

    Is that a photo of a nuked Japan? I'm surprised the Japanese wo

    by FrankDrebin

    I finally caught "GMK: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack." Enjoyed the heck out of it. Needed some Mysterions, though.

    I still say TOHO should've went with my idea and had Gojira figh

    by StoneMonkey

    Alas, TOHO plans on doing this wannabe 'Destroy All Monsters', let them ruin a good thing. Visuals are one thing Harry, how about the plot for this film and the costumes?

  • May 26, 2004, 8:29 a.m. CST

    Wha-? No! I can't believe this!!!

    by Blue_Demon

    I got on! I actually clicked on the address for this fucking site and got on! I'm so used to waiting forever to get on! *wipes tears away* This is incredible...I-I didn't even care about this lame dinosaur shit picture...just wanted to click and see. Just click and see. ( Fix the site Harry! New server! Jesus. )

    "This means nothing"

    by ATARI

  • May 26, 2004, 7:49 p.m. CST

    Well at least Harry stop yelling "MAN IN SUIT" now.

    by NUKE MAYHEM

    The pic looks interesting, but the only way this movie is gonna rock is if they add in the main part of the old Godzilla that made them so damn good, and that's O.O.C.D.(Which stands for "Orgy of Collateral Damage").

  • May 26, 2004, 9:11 p.m. CST

    www.godzilla.co.jp

    by bboy

    I'm sorry to say but this is no scoop. Also, you have the release date wrong as well. It will be released here in Japan on 2004.12.4. Visit www.godzilla.co.jp for this very same screenshot and more. The trailer is coming soon.... Wow, I can almost see my house from that screenshot! I am so close to Tokyo tower haha. You can also see the list of monsters that will be making an appearance. I believe it was announced previously here or at another site.. **SPOILERS** . . . . . Gojira, Gigan (w00t!), Radon, Minilla (ugh), Mosura (mothra), Kamakirasu, Kumonga, Manda, Ebirah, Angiras, King Sheesa, Hedora, and one new mystery monster..."Monxter X". What an odd mix off kaiju..never would I have thought to see Hedora, Gigan and King Sheesa in the same movie. Where is Megalon or Jet Jaguar for that matter =(.

  • May 27, 2004, 12:51 a.m. CST

    Oh Crap!

    by Ktak

    It looks like they blew up Roppongi Hills, my favorite theater in Tokyo. Now I have to see Episode 3 and Fantastic Four at a crappy station mall theater somewhere. I wonder, is this an actual effects frame from the movie, or conceptual art?

    Land Of The Freeze-Dried Gozilla Farts (a song by Fishbone)

    by spacemystery

    This pic reminds me of that song. The title of the song is the acronym I think. Very cool. On the same album as 'Party as Ground Zero' (also cool).

  • Really, just why bother? Move away to a Monster Free Zone. Or at least Mothra free.

  • May 27, 2004, 6:26 a.m. CST

    allright then...

    by claudox67

    at least they didnt make him look like hes coming right out of friggin jurassic park like that Emmerich guy. why do all german-american directors try to make massive blockbuster movies all the time they should make way for some good german movies in the rest of the world (and we DO make good movies;) sometimes!. Dont count AIR FORCE ONE, STARGATE, GODZILLA, ID4,and so on you better go watch DER WIXXER ( "the jerkoff" )now THATS a good german movie and it doesnt need overwhelming cgi crap.

  • May 27, 2004, 10:18 p.m. CST

    Cool...

    by radio1_mike

    It look like to me that they took out Paris. The superstructure in the foreground looks a lot like the Eiffel Tower.
