Movie: Godzilla - King of the Monsters

Oh, like you didn't know.

From here: http://ca.ign.com/articles/2014/05/1...2-is-happening

Probably having something to do with the fact that Godzilla trampled the competition at the box office this weekend, the decision's been made by Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. to officially go forward with a Godzilla 2.

Godzilla "raawwwr"ed up a mighty $93.2 million in its opening domestic weekend. Add that to the $103 million it's already earned intentionally and you've got a total sum equals definite sequel.

Director Gareth Edwards has already stated that if a sequel was ever made, he'd use the same anticipation model he used for the first movie - where, like in Spielberg films, the monster is talked about for the first half of the movie before it's finally revealed.

That's my reaction as well. This is even better then the trailer, because it cuts out the stuff we don't care about, like the humans.

The plot seems odd. She says at the beginning mass extinction has begun and we are the cause of it. Then she says unless all the titans are found, the planet will perish and so will we. To save ourselves, we find gigantic monsters that destroy and kill us all anyway? This sounds like some Primal Rage, let nature take back the earth stuff.....


Hopefully this one focuses heavily on the monsters.

My take is that humans are destroying the world with pollution and environmental destruction. The kaijus arrive to destroy humans and save the planet. To save humanity, people must find the natural enemy of these destroyers, "good kaijus", such as Mothra.

I suppose that's a good explanation; she does seem to regret what happens at some point.

I'm only concerned though b/c Godzilla is one of my favorite franchises and I really liked how he was portrayed in the first movie. Hoping this sequel does even better because honestly, some of these reboots that evolve into new trilogies start crossing the line. I just want this franchise to stay true to itself and not attempt some idiotic plot into it like Fallen Kingdom and dream up calling upon Godzilla as the humans' sudden "weapon" to preserve themselves.
