One last battle remains to decide the fate of a post-apocalyptic Earth in Godzilla: Planet Eater, the third and final film in this 3D animated giant monster trilogy. From Toho Animation and Polygon Pictures, the series plays out as a three-act storyline for the King of Monsters, which finally reaches its conclusion this year, featuring one of Godzilla's most famous foes, the golden dragon King Ghidorah. There's no shortage of kings among the kaiju, are there? This time, King Ghidorah's looking a bit different, as the anime tale brings us a new vision of the beast whose divergent sights are about to be set against his enormous, reptilian co-star. If nothing else, you can't fault this series for lack of ideas. They've got more imagination packed into this thing than several live-acti...

Godzilla: Planet Eater, the third and final film in the animated experiment that is Toho's giant monster trilogy is nearly here. And its first imagery insists that we'll get some action with one of the atomic lizard's most fearsome foes, the great King Ghidorah. But it wouldn't be the G-trilogy without some unique spin on the classics, so we'll not be going in expecting the same three-headed space dragon we've known for decades. The anime three-parter's first installment stomped across Japanese cinema screens and international streaming monitors to a mixed array of reactions, ranging from "I loved it", hailing Godzilla: Planet of Monsters as a fresh visionary take, to "I hate it", dismissing it as a failure in concept and execution, and a whole gamut of emotions somewhere between the ...

Now that the first official trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters is out, fans finally know a little about what lies in store for us in the latest addition to the giant monster movie franchise, and that includes the MonsterVerse debut of beloved daikaiju Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. But one fan decided to do a little remix on the Legendary Pictures trailer, editing the piece to resemble the vibe from classic Toho Studios promos for the old school films, complete with big, animated title cards and voiceover explaining what you're about to see as those unmistakable sound effects ring out. Good times. https://youtu.be/C5VL6WNh2cM Truly, few things in life beat hearing the Japanese word "nani" (what) come from the mouth of Charles "Game of Thrones" Dance. The Michael Doughe...

Who doesn't love Comic-Con, huh? The stars are all alight, ready to spread some much-needed shine on (almost) all our favorite geek properties, soon to be set before us in the coming years as we wait with baited breath. One highly-anticipated offering is the newest entry in Legendary Pictures' MonsterVerse, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Director Michael Dougherty's creature feature promises more kaiju chaos than you can shake a spiked tail at, as we've invited a few other classic Toho Studios monsters along for this party, all featured in the first trailer. The monsterfest started a little early when a little diddy appeared on the interwebs days earlier. A clip featuring actress Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) looking distraught AF as she tries to find help, after what was no d...

The fire-breathing lord of lizards is back in live-action form with Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the Legendary Pictures production due out next year, and here's a couple pictures from the film to prove it. While the unstoppable kaiju continues his rampage across multiple entertainment platforms at once, including Toho Studios' ongoing animated trilogy, the Legendary sequel to the 2014 franchise-starter is revving up to take the planet by storm, literally. That first film kicked off not only the current western film series for Godzilla, but also a larger continuity known as the MonsterVerse, featuring the likes of King Kong and a number of other classic creatures, paving the way for 2017's Kong: Skull Island, and the next link in the chain following King of the Monsters, Godzilla vs...

Giant bugs with laser-antennae. Bloodthirsty fiends from the depths of outer space. Titanic robots of unparalleled strength. Godzilla has been victorious in battle with dozens of seemingly unbeatable adversaries. But perhaps none as fierce as the latest threat standing before him. The menace of a broken heart. In this stop-motion comedy piece from Youtube channel MootroidXProductions, the radioactive lizard serves up his scorching heart for the object of his affection and a series of misunderstandings may lead to devastating consequences. His first romantic troubles were featured in a video a few years ago, only for the battle to rage on yet again this year, as we approach another Singles Awareness Day. Here's the original 2016 video, followed by its 2018 reboot. Because it's not j...

Earth of the future has seen better days, as the giant lizard Godzilla has been having his way with the planet for thousands of years while the humans who abandoned it have tried and mostly failed to colonize other, less hellish planets than the one they once called home. This is the premise as we step into Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, the first of an interlocking three-part film story about the atomic beasty and his reign over an apocalyptic world. In Toho Studios' six-decade history with the giant monster and his scaly friends, we've never seen his towering form rendered with animation in a feature before. As a longtime kaiju fan, from witnessing his first terrifying rampage across Tokyo in 1954's Gojira to Legendary's recent Hollywood offering, 2014's Godzilla, I looked forward t...
