Godzilla: First Full Trailer & Poster

Posted by The Daily Zombies


Or make whatever best Kaiju roar impression you as we check out Gareth Edwards' Godzilla with the release of an awesome trailer as well as numerous promotional items for the much-anticipated film. 

While any scepticism over yet another Hollywood iterations of Godzilla is perfectly understandable, we have been pleasantly surprised by Legendary Pictures and British film-maker Gareth Edwards' upcoming retelling of the greatest Kaiju ever. 

Although it is true that we here at The Daily Zombies aren't exactly the biggest Kaiju fans out there, we definitely hated another outing of the iconic Kaiju similar to the humiliating 1998 take by Roland Emmerich. We were relatively impressed when we check out the film with the release of its first teaser trailer late last year. And now, with the film set to be released in less than three months, the mighty marketing engines of Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are officially heightening their promotional assault to etch the film into our collective consciousness. 

First up, lo and behold, the first full trailer, featuring a pissed-off Bryan Cranston. And we all know very well that the fury of Heisenberg is a good thing. Hit the jump to check out the emotional trailer with a final good shot at the iconic Kaiju.

And here are some awesome screen capture from the trailer featuring the obligatory destruction of the Statue of Liberty.

And in an inspired piece of marketing, the great Kaiju's unique monstrous roar is the focus of attention in this cool SoundCloud audio clip embedded below.

And here's the YouTube edition.

With 2014 incidentally being the 60th anniversary of the original Godzilla, Rialto Pictures will be releasing a new restoration of the film directed by Ishirô Honda. Scheduled to be premiering on April 12 at the fifth TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood, hit the jump to check out the video announcement for the original release as well as the press release.

Here's the official press release:

60th Anniversary of Landmark Monster Movie
New Restoration of Uncut Version to premiere at TCM Classic Film Festival in April followed by national release from Rialto Pictures

A new restoration of GODZILLA: THE JAPANESE ORIGINAL, the monster classic that has spawned six decades of sequels, imitations, and remakes, will debut April 12 at the fifth TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood, followed by a national release beginning at New York’s Film Forum, April 18-24.

GODZILLA was originally released here in 1956 as Godzilla: King of the Monsters, an atrociously cut, dubbed and re-edited version that inserted American actor Raymond Burr into the action; only an hour was used of the original’s 98 minute running time.  Burr does not appear in the original, uncut version, which has an all-Japanese cast including Kurosawa regular Takashi Shimura, who the very same year appeared as leader of the Seven Samurai. 

As directed by Ishirô Honda, with special effects by the legendary Eiji Tsuburaya, GODZILLATHE JAPANESE ORIGINAL is much darker in tone than the dumbed-down U.S. release version, which entirely eliminated the original’s underlying theme:  in the Japanese version, the monster is clearly a metaphor for the nuclear menace and the film itself a cry for world peace and disarmament.  The American version also cut out all of the original’s astonishing Strangelove-like black humor.
The original GODZILLA holds up as one of the greatest science fiction/monster films ever made, boasting still-impressive special effects, as the radiation-breathing prehistoric monster, awakened after millennia by Hydrogen Bomb testing – and impervious to repeated shelling by the Japanese army – wreaks destruction on Tokyo.

GODZILLA became Toho Studio’s #1 box office hit of 1954 (its #2 that year was Seven Samurai) and was so popular worldwide that the company has since produced nearly 30 sequels and remakes; a statue near Toho headquarters in Tokyo pays tribute to their most valuable property. In 1984, the prestigious film journal Kinema Junpo rated it among the top 20 Japanese films of all time. In 1989, a published survey of 370 Japanese movie critics, Nihon Eiga Besuto 150 (Best 150 Japanese Films), ranked Godzilla the 27th greatest Japanese feature ever made.

A new American version of Godzilla from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, directed by Gareth Edwards (2010’s Monsters), will be released nationally May 16.

Getting back to the new film, here's the latest poster.

In the latest issue of the Empire Magazine, Godzilla got the Kaiju-size coverage with a special "megazine" edition that is 30% larger than the regular-sized issues at approximately 26cm by 34cm. Here's the awesome cover giving us the real full-on shot of the iconic Kaiju as well as the cool variant edition of the cover.

Courtesy of JoBlo, here are some of the images exclusively from the same issue of the Empire Magazine. First up, an awesome size chart giving us a good reference on the sheer massiveness of the latest version when compared to the previous incarnations of the Kaiju.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, and Richard T. Jones,   Godzilla is currently scheduled to open in 3D on May 16, 2014.

True Romance by Gabz & Odd City Entertainment

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Odd City Entertainment and Polish artist Gabz pay homage to one of Tony Scott's best films with not one but two intriguing take on 1993's True Romance. 

While many perceive Tony Scott's True Romance as a great showing of visceral visual and snappy writing, the film was considered as a box office flop back when it was released in 1993. Today, we are enamoured by Gary Oldman's dreadlocked pimp Drexl Spivey, the "Sicilian scene" between Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper, and of course, the absolute brilliance of Quentin Tarantino. Chipping in to share our adulation of the crime/romance cult film, Odd City Entertainment has teamed up once again with Polish artist Grzegorz Domaradzki, better known as Gabz, to conjure not one but two exciting renditions of the film.

In line with the film's setting in both the cities of Detroit and Los Angeles, the print has been released in two versions to represent both cities. The blue Cupid on the white background is for Detroit, and the black Cupid on cream is for Los Angeles. In the words of the artist himself:

“Coming up with a concept for a movie like True Romance, that I have been a huge fan of for years and is among my favourite Tony Scott films of all time, wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be when I first got the proposal. There are so many brilliant quotes, memorable scenes and a mind-blowing soundtrack on top of it all.

The Hawaiian shirted Cupid I went with, symbolizing the bizarre romance between Alabama and Clarence, came to me as a revelation and I felt I had a winner. I desperately wanted to not only catch the mood of the film, but also include as many characters as I could possibly fit. I love every single performance from the movie and I felt like everyone deserved a tribute.” – Grzegorz “GABZ” Domaradzki

WATCH Grindhouse Horrors - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies


This Undead Monday, we take a trip into the repulsive depths of Grindhouse Horrors thanks to the efforts of YouTube user Frank Dracman who painstakingly assemble a mega-compilation of absolutely NSFW trailers of Grindhouse film. 

Second Warning. 

For those who either not know what exactly is Grindhouse and/or are just simply out of their minds wishing to check out something understanding what it is actually about, the following clip, which we have stumbled into thanks to the ever-resourceful iO9, is very much NSFW. In the very own words of the YouTube user Frank Dracman, who painstakingly assemble an almost 100-minute long mega-compilation of trailers of Grindhouse film:


Third Warning. 

So you are here to stay to check out 70s exploitation films featuring Devil worshipers, violent crazies, women in prison, kung-fu pugilists, gonzo scientists and theorists, and all kinds of insane characters indulging in copious amount of depraved sex, violence, and plain bizarre behaviors? Roll along and hit the jump then. Oh, and in agreement with iO9, they are awesome.

Gotham Gears

Posted by The Daily Zombies

The best and the worst of Gotham get a Mecha-transformation in artist Justin Currie's Gotham Gears

Testament to Batman' status as one of the most important cultural icons of our generation, we have seen the Dark Knight in various forms of interpretation both as homage and /or reinvention of the old trope of the Billionaire Playboy who turns into a vigilante/psychopath at night, no matter how outlandish they might seem. Just off the top of our Undead minds, we have seen Italian artist Denis Medri's Rockabilly Batman, DC Nation's Batman of Shanghai, artist Matthew Benkner's Sesame Street's version, and even Ben Affleck's upcoming portrayal. With the above in mind, I guess having Batman and his infamous Rogues' Gallery transformed into Mechas isn't too much of mindblowing experience.
