Other thread pointed out it was released on a Wednesday the first time...so July 18 would be like, exactly the same release as the first one.


Correct as predicted. Well done. I look forward to it. The first film I know has its detractors, but as I've stated many times before, I enjoy this more as just a sci-fi anime than a Godzilla film.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

Wow.

Spoiler Below:
The movie centers around rebuilding Mechagodzilla. So most of the movie is them rebuilding it, while the main character walks through the jungle and narrates the rebuilding process....then they get Mechagodzilla up to 25% complete and Godzilla shows up and blows it up before it can be finished so they never actually fight.


EDIT: In addition, at a showing one individual went to, they handed out polls for people to take for a chance to win a poster. One of the questions was: "What are you most looking forward to?" and one of the answer selections was "Godzilla fighting Mechagodzilla"

This is some next-level TROLLING


I can't wait to see everyone try to convince themselves how good that is.
DICSLAIMER: It IS second-hand information, and the source is a rather grumpy individual, so, it might be kind of an exaggerated description, but...yeah. LOL it's like a troll job in film form. Though a second person now has corroborated.


If this does turn out to be the plot I won't be surprised one bit. The trailer made it look like more of the same from the first, character talking, arguing, talking, arguing....

It looks like the official English title for the third anime film is Godzilla: The Planet Eater. It'll open in Japanese theaters on November 9 and we can expect another 60-day wait for it to hit Netflix on January 8.

Maybe, unless the same rules apply to the anime that applied to Shin in which case it will need to be released in 2018 - wouldn't it be funny if they had to wait until 2021 to release the final part internationally

^ I think once it opens in Japanese theaters this November it will officially be released in 2018 as far as any contract stipulations with WB and Legendary are concerned. Putting it on Netflix after that shouldn't be an issue any more than adding other Godzilla movies to Netflix for the first time.

Spoiler Below:
truthfully though I’ve actually enjoyed this. I wish Angilas or some other kaiju besides Godzilla, Jr and those adapted skeletons showed up, but I guess we’ll get at least one of them next time and maybe mothra and Mg too, or Godzilla fires a beam into space like against Monster X only this time Ghidorah crashes to Earth, dead, and we all weep at this being a waste. I mean it was meant to be a series of eps not movies so they were written for buildup and suspense so I assume the payoff is coming at the end. Since I was a child I wanted an animated Godzilla, even had the way the seasons would play out in my mind. While this has fallen short of what my then 10 year old brain could conceive, more Godzilla is always better to me unless it’s fake Godzilla. This has given me some great stats to pad Godzilla’s resume with so all those battle forum fools touting Cloverfield’s mother or the Pacific Rim King as the true king of the monsters can be shut down easily. I mean he literally conquered the planet this time so end of discussion, he’s king of the monsters for good!

The extent to which I couldn't possibly care about "shutting down" people who argue that Cloverfield or a PacRim kaiju could beat Godzilla is staggering.

I wouldn't trade the time these movies have sucked away from my life for that. Ever.

I’ve probably spent more time writing about the films than actually watching them. They aren’t so long. However the amount of time I need to give to Godzilla’s greatest feats gets cut in half now. Don’t expect most to care but there are forums where you pit Superhero’s against each other, kaiju, or super villains. Many were angry at GINO myself included for the cowardice and weakness displayed by “Godzilla” on top of other issues with the film. This is the opposite. Godzilla’s never been more powerful. Is it my favorite Godzilla film? By no means. Still depending on how the third plays out it could be an enjoyable memory after all is said and done.

Yeah the animated series kind of made up for the film. Even Toho no longer acknowledges Gino as the real Godzilla though.

That's not true. "Zilla" is specifically cited as a different kaiju, with the 1998 film still featuring Godzilla.

The way I see it is that Zilla is 'a Godzilla' in the same way Minya is. More off-brand than most, but still in the family.

They aren’t going to take the Godzilla trademark off the 97 film, but Tomiyama, a figure with actual authority at Toho spoke on behalf of the company saying it took the God out of Godzilla, when explaining the rationale behind renaming it Zilla. You might be interested to know they let the Godzilla Trademark for the animated series die at the end of 2005 (don’t take my word for it, search trademark registration 2235421 at USPTO.gov and see for yourself), within months of Tomiyama’s comments.

The closest explicit thing you may see in writing is if someone wants to dig up these cards they filed the trademark application for (FYI the trademark app for Zilla used the final wars dvd box and this card game as it’s images): https://www.barcodelookup.com/034517682107
If it mentions NYC or 97 on the Zilla card then you’ll know Toho’s Official stance on it. I took Tomiyama’s word for it: http://web.archive.org/web/200502031811 ... illa2.html

That being said I could be wrong. I have no inside connections to Toho or their legal dept. and just go by what I read.

Godzilla is an individual monster character.

Zilla is an individual monster character.

Zilla was originally named Godzilla and the creature was originally presented to the world as a revised take on the Godzilla character in the 1998 film titled Godzilla and the 1998-2000 animated TV series titled Godzilla: The Series.

In 2004, aware of the fact that most fans already considered the 1998 creature to be Godzilla in name only, Toho acknowledged the monster as a separate character unto itself by changing its name to Zilla.

The Zilla character has since appeared alongside the actual Godzilla character in the 2004 film Godzilla: Final Wars and IDW's comic book series Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, affirming Zilla's status as a separate monster character from Godzilla.

All Toho did was change the monster's name from Godzilla to Zilla as of 2004. Toho didn't travel back in time and change the past. The monster is still named Godzilla in the 1998 film and the 1998-2000 animated TV series. Just because someone's name changes doesn't mean the past changes too.

Sorry for sort of derailing the thread.
Speaking of other kaiju though I think one thing that would have immensely improved the films is giving us some of the intricate kaiju action written about in the movie even in snippets. I mean I realize good animation ain’t free, but it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than building suits and set pieces with elaborate spfx. So if they’ve got all this great backstory for Orga, Dogora, Dagarah, Kamacuras, Angilas, Rodan, and Hedorah why not show us a little bit? It doesn’t have to be at great length but even in the opening credits would be something. For a description of their backstory you can click here: https://www.tohokingdom.com/movies/godz ... sters.html
Spoiler Below:
I mean with MechaG getting no action, the servums being kind of boring after you’ve seen them once, filius basically being Godzilla and this Godzilla making Shin Gojira seem like Speedy Gonzales, I feel like they could really throw us a bone here.

Maybe it’s coming in the third film and we’ll get some knock down drag out kaiju action with Ghidorah, Mothra, Godzilla, and maybe even Mecha-G getting in on it. Otherwise we’ll have had 3 straight animated films of nothing but Godzilla vs the humans and their alien companions. Even 30+ live action films knew that would be too boring as any solo adventure (and there’s only been 3 [4 if you count GiNO]) was immediately followed by a tai, vs or x (until now). And now we’ll have had 3 straight films since shin Goji with no kaiju vs kaiju.
I loved shin and like some things about this. After a 10 year hiatus, having this alongside the legendary films is like a dream come true. But to ensure the ball keeps rolling I think these are the type of improvements Toho could be looking at.

The backstory and prequels for these movies is INFINITELY more exciting than anything in the movies themselves. It's almost like they said, "Hey, you know how a lot of things in movies happen AFTER some boring time in a person's life where nothing remarkable happens? Well, let's NOT show the things that normally happen and instead focus on those lulls of inactivity. That'll make for RIVETING viewing!"

^that is a real dissapointment. Not to sound ungrateful but I wonder why they decided against that? I remember it seemed like before the animated series we’d be getting nothing but monster action and kaiju on top of kaiju they’d forgotten about like a Final Wars done the right way (so it wouldn’t look so cheesy/feel rushed in production) and do stuff they never had the money to do live action (like in gvkg show anything from the future besides under the sea). Take it from me, I understand people’s frustration with this, I’m a silver lining type of guy so I can find some good in just about anything but peoples complaints are legit. I went into things more excited about this than Godzilla II at first (1 was a bit of a let down but not in a GiNO way, more a lack of Goji/Heisenberg). My how things have changed...

:lol:
I hope the disappointment from City on Edge is enough for them to pull a 180 in the third act but it’s been soo human centric i’d almost advise new fans to skip to part 3 just so they don’t get bored and turned off from the idea of kaiju.
It’s animated so I feel there was ample opportunity to make this a kaiju paradise. I didn’t think we’d be limited to servums and Goji. It’s Toho so I never thought we’d get more animated kaiju from Hanna Barbara and Tristar than the company that made and holds the trademarks to the largest roster of awesome kaiju of all time (no offense to Tsubaraya/TYO or Daiei-K)

I just hope that after the third story, Toho still be making more anime adaptations of Godzilla, this experience could serve to see what works at what doesn't, I would love to see an anime adaptation based on the Showa series, a short anime series would be ok.

I wish we could get a weekly animated series based on the events of these 2 novels, seems way more interesting than the films themselves:

Ah, that is a really cool poster. It's also the most traditional of the posters so far, seeing how it's a classic Godzilla grappling another monster tableau.

I wonder if anime King Ghidorah has the wings and legs that we usually associate with him or he's some sort of rat king of intertwined energy snakes?
