    Yeah, you heard that right. New Godzilla coming out in 2016 and it's being made by Toho.

    The wait until Godzilla 2 is definitely more bearable now. Hopefully they have some cool new ideas and it isn't just another retread. Personally, I'm eager to see how much the miniature sets and man-in-suit effects have progressed since 2004.

    can't tell if this will either get people excited for PR2, or if PR2 will come crashing in to the kaiju party a year too late when nobodies' around anymore

    Oh god a Godzilla movie so close after the American remake. TOHO is gonna over saturate Godzilla again aren't they.

    I don't know man, the last time we got Godzilla movies after an American remake, things didn't turn out so great with the giant monster genre.

    A Toho Godzilla film sounds really cool.....

    Then I realise I'm from the UK where we get shafted for practically every single one except the original and King Kong Vs Godzilla.

    Oh well....

    But wasn't that due to Zilla leaving such a terrible taste in everyone's mouths, Toho felt obligated to bring back the "true" Godzilla? This time around, they're not under that pressure. Instead of making new movies to show up Zilla, they're making them because fans are getting into the Big G again.

    I am a little worried, though; Japan doesn't seem to have the same interest in kaiju as they once did, despite how well G2014 did. All it takes is falling movie sales, and we'll be back with 5 Godzilla incarnations, 4 Mothras, 2 Ghidorahs, another Mechagodzilla, and only one or two new monsters due to Japanese people's lack of interest in films featuring brand-new kaiju.

    The Millennuim movies were due to the next GINO sequel not having any major developments going on at the time. Toho knew that the wait for money from an American Godzilla was gonna be long, so they rushed out a new movie. The whole "TOHO was angry thing G2K is their response" is simply not true.

    I could see this working if they actually try making new kajiu.
    Instead of using the same ones.
    Their is a lot of potential for new kajiu.

    My guess, not too much. I mean, it is Japan. They really don't put the cash behind their movie budgets like in the US. Well I guess worse case scenario...

    I'd probably still watch it.

    Who knows. It could be really good.
    Here's what the problem is. Unless they make new monsters, it's not gonna work.
    They actually have to try with the enemies this time, instead of MOTHRA GHIDORAH MOTHRA MOTHRA GHIDORAH.
