Godzilla, as he appears from above - trailer at 1pm ET!

godzilla-pics-3

Anyone who was able to see that ridiculous second trailer leak a few weeks back will remember just how infuriating the camerawork was during the HALO jump.  Actually, during all of it, but that's not the point!

We were obviously supposed to see something pretty cool in that jumper's POV, and now we can!

USAToday got a sneak peak, courtesy of Legendary, and even confirmed the release of the trailer online at 1pm, on Tuesday, December 10!  Still not sure what the hell the mutoresearch.net XML file is hinting at, then...

We're also treated to a shot of a scared Ford Brody, looking up at what we assume is the king, himself.

USA had this quote from the director, as well.

To me, he's like a force of nature, like the wrath of God or vengeance for the way we've behaved.  If this really happened, it would be like Sept. 11.
I want it to be epic. I want to get the hairs on the back of your neck up.

Door to Hell taken over by MUTO

exclusive-mysterious-new-viral-image-teases-godzilla-trailer-150668-a-1386578309-1000-625

Turkministan's "Door to Hell" has been locked down by MUTO!  At least that's what this viral image passed on to Total Film seems to show.  They've already made their mark on The Heavely Pit.  Just what could be going on, I wonder?

With the trailer set for release, tomorrow or Wednesday, things are certainly heating up!   ...I really didn't intend the pun.

Legendary posted a link on their Twitter page to an article on the Chinese site, Mtime.  The article has an image of the wold's largest sinkhole in Fengjie, China, Xiaozhai Tiankeng, also known as the heavenly pit.

No clue where the image comes from, but careful analysis points us to MUTOresearch.net, a viral marketing site for you-know-who.

We have a full breakdown of everything after the jump, including video, some cast listings, and a little more info on that trailer.  Finally!

Cosmic Book News is reporting that Legendary will be releasinging the official teaser trailer for Godzilla, this Tuesday, around 1:00 pm.  Looks like it will also be attached to The Hobbit, like everyone thought.

We'll be sure to post the trailer and keep it up, this time.  Everyone ready for an early Christmas?

UPDATE: New info from MUTOresearch.net points to a 11pm EST release on Dec 10 being more likely, at least for the viral site.  More, here.

UPDATE 2:  While the mutoresearch.net data remains the same, USAToday confirmed a 1pm release.

First official 'Godzilla' trailer coming, soon

godzilla - trailer 1 - rating

There have been a lot of rumors, leaks, and outright BS associated with the release of Legendary's Godzilla trailer, but it looks like we may finally be getting it, sometime this month.  The Alberta Film Classification group is essentially Canada's MPAA, albeit with a beter sense of humor.

Anyway, they recently posted a PG rating for "Godzilla (trailer#1)."  Woohoo!

Ratings usually pop up one to two weeks before their release, lending credence to those Hobbit rumors.

So we may see this trailer attached to the December 13 release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, or even sooner, online.  The earliest release of the film is the tenth in Norway.

The length of the trailer is 2:25, so it's more likely to be the second trailer that leaked, instead of that 90-second SDCC demo real that was also leaked.

Just a little longer, folks!

Godzilla Design Revealed on Amazon / Photoshop?

AMAZON revealRunning Press has listed a book with a Godzilla light and sound figure on Amazon. The place holder image (which has been removed) looks like it was photoshopped from various images. But it does give us another look of the more than likely new Godzilla 2014 design. I personally hope that the final design will look better than this but at least it resembles Godzilla more than G'98 did.

Articulation for MonsterArts Mothra (UPDATED)

1458538 391801930953538 2025196702 n

A magazine page of the new MonsterArts Mothra has surfaced showing the different articulation points of our favorite lepidoptera (science term for moth). You can see the abdomen has articulation points that appear more realistic to the character than what was shown in the film. The legs move and I assume there are articulation with her mandibles, antennae, and mouth. This page doesn't display much of the wing articulation but we've seen those from previous posts.

UPDATE: Tamashii's web page provides official shots of their new Mothra. More after the jump.

Lost Trendmasters commercials posted

Godzilla-Trendmasters-Doom-Island

Anyone with even a little history with me knows I have a special place in my heart for Trendmasters.  I just love them, especially the unreleased lines like Doom Island, Origins, and the Animated Series.

Well, thanks to another dedicated Trendmasters fan, Jonathan Shyman (Trendmasters on our boards), the commercials for these lines have now been uploaded to YouTube!  Check out the Godzilla Doom Island and Animated Series commercials, below.

Just look at that 90's CG!

Look at that!  You can see the battery pack used on Biollante!  This figure was especially made for the commercial.  The battery pack was to power the extra LEDs used to make her brighter.

These come from a promotional pack given to retailers by Trendmasters reps.  The pack included a DVD with commercials from their latest product lines.  Unfortunately, after the less-than-stellar sales of the 98 movie line, retailers not only skipped on wave two, but the animated figures as well, so they were never released.

It's unclear if the 10" Doom Island figures were ever officially released.  There are some reports of them being sold in American stores, but none of the packaged figures are properly marked and all share the same UPC code.  This, along with statements by former employees, points to these figures being test runs of the manufacturing and packaging process.

You can read more about Trendmasters and Doom Island on our forums, here.
