So what are your thoughts? Interested? Curious? Not really your thing? I for one an really looking forward to seeing a real American Godzilla movie to make up for the disappointing Roland Emmerich 98 film from Sony.

Sounds great to me. I wish I didn't have to wait until 2014 though.

I can't wait for this, and from the sounds of it they've really got the essence of Big G right this time. I'm wondering how they can have Godzilla be this scary force of nature and have him fight other monsters, because the latter aspect of the franchise always brought the cheeze to the table.

Can't be worse than the first one. Do you really call this a 'reboot' though?

I wonder who are those 2 monsters in the teaser being beaten the shit out of. I'm guessing King Kong and the Giant Mothra or something. :P I'm gonna be disappointed if this movie doesn't have monster death matches of any kind like King Kong or anyone else or Mecha Godzilla.

Fuck. (Fuck. Fuck. fuck. fuck. fuck....)
Yes. (Yes. Yes. yes. yes. yes...)

That music is either fake or a temp track. It's MIDI and sounds like music from a Satruday morning cartoon.

Legendary Pictures Godzilla Reboot get's an Official Release date (May 16. 2014)

It will go head to head with Micheal Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Reboot... Great News i think. Most anticipated film of 2014 in my opinion hopefully it wont disappoint me like Sony;s version did.
