Gareth Edwards, director of the new Godzilla movie, says the king of the monsters is now 350 feet tall, making him the biggest Godzilla of all time. He revealed this tidbit of info, along with other titillating details, during a recent Q&A session that involved a twenty-minute private screening of the movie.
According to IGN, five scenes were shown, including an incident at a power plant, an interrogation, an “amazing” action scene involving a train, a sequence in Hawaii, and the “Halo jump” from the teaser trailer.
Here are the biggest highlights of the Q&A:
- Edwards liked that the original Godzilla was a very serious take on the monster movie genre and it’s that seriousness he wants to capture in the new film.
- The story is about man versus nature, and how nature cannot be defeated. It’s also about a family “torn apart” by a natural disaster that took place fifteen years ago in Japan.
- In finalizing Godzilla’s 350 Feet height, he wanted the monster to be so big as to be seen from anywhere in the city, but not too big that he couldn’t be obscured.
- He wanted to work with Bryan Cranston not because of the actor’s performance in Breaking Bad — he hasn’t seen the critically-acclaimed TV show — but rather because of his performance in sitcom Malcolm in the Middle.

First Justice League Trailer is Entertaining, Heavy on Humor
Warner Bros. dropped a lot of great content at San Diego Comic Con, including an impressive first trailer for Wonder Woman and a teaser for the Justice League movie.
In the case of the Justice League trailer, it makes a very good impression. It’s heavy on humor between some of the world’s greatest superheroes but a little light on action, indicating a tonal difference between Justice League and Batman v Superman.
We also get a our first looks at The Flash and Cyborg in action — let us know what you think about their design…
I gotta say, after watching the trailer, I am much more optimistic about Justice League. Let’s just hope the finished movie is as entertaining.
Justice League: Part 1 is scheduled to hit theaters on November 17, 2017. It is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Mamoa, J.K. Simmons, Amber Heard, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher.
First Wonder Woman Trailer More Than Impresses
At San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. revealed the first trailer for the Wonder Woman movie, giving comic book fans their first taste of what actress Gal Gadot’s powerful heroine will bring to the DC cinematic universe.
That’s right, after many false starts, a live-action Wonder Woman film is on its way and it looks better than we could have imagined…
What do you think?
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Lucy Davis, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, and Saïd Taghmaoui. It releases in theaters on June 23, 2017.

Second Doctor Strange Trailer Even Trippier Than First
Doctor Strange, one of my most anticipated movies of 2016, has received a second trailer, and it’s even trippier than the first one.
Revealed at San Diego Comic Con, the new trailer sheds more light on Stephen Strange’s journey from a mere surgeon to a powerful sorcerer on a mission to save the world.
Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) are the main highlights, but we also get an extended look at the movie’s main bad guy, Kaecilius, who is played by Mads Mikkelsen.
See all three of them in action in the trippy trailer…
I will be interesting to discover how Dr. Strange’s adventure impact the rest of the MCU. We suspect Marvel will use it to tie together the supernatural and downright fantasy elements (e.g. Guardians of the Galaxy) to the slightly more grounded, sci-fi events of The Avengers‘ world.
The Dr. Strange movie releases on October 28, 2016, in Europe and on November 4, 2016, in North America. What do you hope to see?
