Gareth Edwards had only directed one film before tackling 2014's massive Godzilla. That film got him the gig helming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and although he was expected to return for Godzilla 2, that’s no longer happening.
The Superman cartoons from the 1940s were animated with a beauty and fluidity not seen before, but they were also hugely influential outside the world of animation.
We’ve seen brief glimpses of Hideki Anno and Shinji Higuchi’s Shin Godzilla (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence) before, but we’ve barely seen the kaiju himself. But now new pictures of Toho’s first Godzilla film in over a decade have hit the web, giving us a look at a very gruesome King of the Monsters.
Of all Kaiju, it’s only natural that Godzilla gets the premiere treatment. After all, he’s the most famous, and has long held the title of “King of Kaiju”. That royalty now extends to Funko’s ever-expanding line of vinyl toys, as Godzilla’s is pretty damn fantastic.
When Godzilla came out last year, there were a lot of jokes about how the premiere Kaiju of the movie world had, errr... a bit of a weight problem. I didn’t particularly notice it, until this ginormous (and amazing looking) figure reminded me just how meaty old ‘Zilla was.
Believe it or not, people still buy VHS tapes. The aging format has been in decline for years, but between the collectors and the luddites, there’s a big enough market for Amazon to maintain a massive library of tapes for sale. You’d never guess what tops the “New and Popular” list.
He might not look quite like he's just stepped out of a video game and on-to your desk, but the cool pixelation effect on this Godzilla figure's paint scheme certainly makes him stand out as a stylish King of Kaiju!
I mean, look how big and flame-breathy it is! Only such extreme fieriness could be possible through the magic of translucent plastic stands.
Remember the old Shogun Warriors toys, those giant, oversized Japanese robot figures? Well, the granddaddy Kaiju of them all may not be a funky Robot, but he's just as awesome in the Shogun Warriors style.
There is a special place reserved in my heart for kaiju. A love that I've cultivated through meticulous fandom and my brief four-month stay in kaiju's ancestral home of Japan. That's why when Toho, the Japanese production company responsible for the King of Monsters himself, announced that they were getting back into…
Well, not literally, as he's meant to be melting from the inside out, but you know what I mean. The last of the Heisei Godzillas is getting a NECA figure, and he looks badass.
I am very jealous of this. Amazon Japan is selling a special edition of Godzilla on Blu-Ray that not only comes in some lovely steelbook packaging, but with this spectacular red Godzilla figure. That's one hot Kaiju right there.
It's New York Comic Con next week, and you know what that means? Oodles of lovely exclusive toys to gaze at (and then lament that any you actually want you'll probably end up paying out the ass for on eBay after the con)! First up in the parade of wonderful toys is Bandai, with lovely Godzilla goodness.
Godzilla may have barely featured in his titular comeback earlier this year, but when he did show up, he was a pretty fabulous looking Kaiju - and this new statue from Sideshow really shows him off in all his glory.
I really thought Godzilla was going to be cool. I mean the the teaser had that sick HALO jump scene and the cast had a post-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston with an always watchable Ken Watanabe and oh yeah, GODZILLA! There was no way they were going to screw it up like they did in 1998. And yet, they did.
With Matthew Broderick out of the picture, and the latest version of the film destroying the box office, it's cool to like Godzilla again. And we all know that the best way to show your appreciation for anything is to wear a hoodie that turns you into a crude facsimile of it—whether it be a gigantic rampaging lizard…
This diagram showing a medical cross-section of Godzilla was created in 1967 by Shogo Endo for a book called An Anatomical Guide to Monsters. Apart from Godzilla it contains a variety of anatomical drawings of many other kaijus, including Mothra, Gamera and Agurius.
If Godzilla attacks the city, who you gonna call? Exactly, Walter White. Yeah, why not? Apparently the only way to defeat the giant Japanese beast is with a Methamphetamine overdose—and we all know Walter White makes the strongest shit in town yo! WARNING, spoilers ahead!
Paleontologists have just unearthed the fossilized bones of a gigantic dinosaur that's never been seen before. They believe it's an entirely new species—and based on the size of its bones, it's way bigger than what we thought was the biggest dinosaur ever. Meet the new number one among earthly creatures.
