What is in the hopper?

Here is some movie news to discuss. First up more Godzilla news. It seems the teaser trailer for the new Godzilla hit was one of the big successes at last week’s Comic-Con. as reported by 109.com/

Unlike Lone Ranger, this is one surprise screening that worked — the glimpse of Godzilla trashing a city did absolutely everything you wanted it to do. And Godzilla looked absolutely massive and powerful, able to take down entire buildings with one sweep of his claw. This was this year’s Tron Legacy moment: surprise footage that got everyone talking for days afterwards.

There is also a campaign underway to have Akira Takarada have a small rose, maybe a cameo, in the new Godzilla Movie. Akira Takarada Is a well known Japanese actor and has starred in several Godzilla movies including the very first, Gojira, in 1954 and the very last Godzilla movie, Final Wars, in 2004. Here is hoping he gets a part I really would love to see him in it and I think he deserves it. 

There is also a Facebook page related to this issue and a YouTube video.

There is also a TV show being rebooted and from the looks and sounds of it I think it is going to be pretty good. The 1960s comedy The Munster’s is being rebooted by CBS as Mockingbird Lane. Here is more info on that.

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
