What in God's Name is This? Gamera 3D?

Spinning flame-jetted turtles, space birds being chopped up like bologna, kids in shorts screaming for help...the original Gamera series was a strange mix of wacky fun!! The 90's Gamera films set a standard that other kaiju films are measured against! Discuss Gamera films here!!

That's got to be some kind of poetry. Beautiful, insane, poetry.
the stuff like that is the reason why i still can't believe this is real...


What, you doubt the official website of the man who was assistant director on such Kurosawa classics as "Blooded Throne," "Bad Man Sleeps Well" and "Lower Bottom?"

I'm starting to think the man is insane.

He wanted to make a 3D Godzilla film for years that no one would touch with a ten foot pole. Then LP goes to Toho about making a new Godzilla film so Toho makes Banno an executive producer so he can keep tabs on the production on their behalf. So based on that he's decided the smartest course of action is to revive the 3D idea, just replacing Godzilla with Gamera.

The fudge?

Was chatting a bity about this last night. Dumb. Won't happen in all likelyhood and if it really gets developed Kadokawa will have another bomb on their film output resume in regards to Gamera. And yeah I agree ... Another crappy Pollution Kaiju idea?? WTF Banno after all this time still nothing new huh?? What a hack.

Banno was able to sell his Godzilla relaunch to Legendary Pictures, so Kadokawa is saying, "Do the same for us!" Lightning may not strike once, but Banno did what others couldn't do with Toho — thanks to Banno.

Banno likely had a hand in selling GODZILLA to legendary, but it remains to be seen just how much of his "Deathla" idea will translate to the 2012 film...

my thought is, if nothing does, then it's doubtful he could sell Gamera to anybody...

So I've been out of the damn loop. How'd this get by me? Anything new?

...and yes, Banno is crazy. That's why I like him. :)

the more times you say "it not going to happen" just makes it more likely
for it to happen.
