"Godzilla" is set to open this Friday (May 16th) and today we have the first two clips from the upcoming reboot, as well as the first reviews. Check everything out below.
On RottenTomatoes, the film currently has an impressive 88% fresh rating, but there aren't that many critics who feel that it's a great film. For a monster movie, however, it's being considered one of the best. And definitely, one of the better summer blockbusters. See the reviews here.
"Godzilla" is directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters) And stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Ken Watanabe (Inception), Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), and Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad").
I already have my Friday night tickets booked. I can't bloody wait, nice to see a positive start with the reviews.
@cress I found Pac rim fun in parts but the acting was pretty blah. I did read that he wanted to give it a comic book campiness, it certainly had that but it was not really my bag. But my nephew loved it so it was a good kids movie I suppose.

Whoa hold the f*ck on. All these Twitter reviews we just saw for X-Men says how it's a great X-Men film, in other words a film good for only what material it deals with. Godzilla is a great monster movie therefore it should be called an equally great film. Ah the double standards of the world.
Pacific Rim looked like a Manga movie directed by Greengrass and written by the guy who writes those horrid Resident Evil movies for Anderson ... in other words, Dark8 wrote the script with crayon and his own feces.
^^Maybe, but Pac Rim was fun. It was a movie about robots fighting monsters, not monsters smashing cities, which we've seen many times before. Pac Rim is just more original, Godzilla is anything but, and the former is more enjoyable than the latter for that reason alone.
Duly noted. It was fun. ... and yes, original *considering the genre.
It kinda reminded me what Godzilla would have been if they stuck the robots from RoboJox in it (along with the 80's actors) ...
They're going after Godzilla just like they are now trying to do with the Mummy .... retreading familiar territory ....
Incidentally, what they fail to grasp is the Toho concept, which was that Godzilla was a representation of what the Japanese had felt was done to them due to the two bombs dropped during the war in the Pacific ...
