Ifukube and Godzilla: A Musical Celebration Kickstarter

Sometimes we get you the news, early.  Sometimes, we're late.  We will not discuss HOW late.  Let's just leave it at late.

This one is a bit late.  You know that Ifukube fella?  That guy that made the music that want to keep on repeat all the time?  Yeah!  Let's all back a concert dedicated to his music!

With only nine days and $6,500 to go, we might just be able to put on a concert in time for this great man's 100th birthday and Godzilla's 60th!  I can remember being dragged to the orchestra over and over on field trips as a kid.  I always hoped they would play some Godzilla music.  Time and time, again, it was a Star Wars finale.  Well, let's try and change that for a few lucky individuals.  Let's all pitch in and put on the concert we've always wanted!

Please pledge, today!

With less than three months away, it's time to kick off the marketing campaign for Legendary's upcoming Godzilla reboot film. Starting with the first commercial Snickers commercial featuring Big G himself just released an hour ago (around midnight on 2/28).

Pacific Rim holds another convoluted honor

964890 515290395203929 1526073169 o

Cinema Blend has an article detailing the important status of Pacific Rim's over $400 million worldide box office earnings.  Of the top ten highest-grossing movies of 2013, while Pacific Rim sits at number ten, it was the higehsest grossing live-action, original film of the year.  Woo-hoo?

So, of the other nine films, eight were sequels, re-hashes, or based on an existing IP.  The only other original film in the lot was The Croods, and that was animated.

So, at least this is another honor that we can bestow on Pacific Rim, alongside its "not-a-flop" worldwide gross.  Make sure you get your copy of the film legally on October 15.  Physical and digital sales will play a big role in whether or not we have a chance at a sequel, here!

New Pacific Rim Footage

As we count down to Pacific Rim's release date, more and more TV spots, featurettes, and online trailers have surfaced. The latest titled "The Resistence" is officially released on the Pacific Rim facebook page and re-hosted on youtube by Geek Mundo below with a few shots of new footage:

Also I have lost track of how many TV spots there are. I believe it's currently up to 11? Warnerbros has only released up to TV spot# 7 on their youtube page. Enjoy the footage and let's support this movie on opening weekend!

Hideo Kojima loves Pacific Rim

Who would've guessed that the creator of Metal Gear, known for his over-the-top stories and characters, loves Guillermo del Toro's giant-robot-adventure?  He was allowed to tweet about an early screening.  Here are the tweets, joined together for simplicity.

Dear twitter friends, The followings are my comment regarding "Pacific Rim". Luckily I was allowed to tweet in public by WB.  I have never imagined that I would be fortunate enough to see a film like this in my life.  The emotional rush I had inside me was the same kind I had when I felt the outer space via "2001: A Space Odyssey" and when I had touched the dinosaur in "Jurassic Park". Animation and special effects movies and shows that I loved in my childhood days - they all truly exist in the screen. Director Guillermo del Toro offers this spectacular vision of massive kaijus and robots in Pacific Rim.

This film is not simply a film to be respected, but most importantly, it let us dream the future of entertainment movies.  Pacific Rim is the ultimate otaku film that all of us had always been waiting for. Who are you, if you are Japanese and won't watch this?  I hope you would accept this inspirational love letter that had traveled across the Pacific, written by Director Guillermo del Toro.

-Hideo Kojima

We also have word that Jesus Yeezus Kanye West was also able to screen the film.

I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday and it's easily one of my favorite movies of all time.  This is not another "Robot" movie. Guillermo del Toro is a master.

-Jesus Kanye West

Apparently, they liked it, and their love is newsworthy...

Pacific Rim - "Second Chances"

I've been slacking off with the updates, again, but at least Legendary is helping us celebrate the 4th with a new trailer for Pacific Rim entitled "Second Chances."  In it, we get a closer look at the story of the pilots with a much more human tone than we've seen in past trailers.

We're just eight days away from July 12, folks!  Pacific Rim and G-Fest XX all in one weekend, followed by Comic-Con.  It's going to be a wild ride this month!

 

And from all of us here at GForever.net, have a happy and safe Independence Day!

Kaiju horn cured my RLS

People will eat or do almost anything to cure whatever ails them.  So what happens when a giant monster is killed?  People eat it!  Hannibal Chau, of Kaijuremedies.com, aims to provide you with all the BS cures your stupid little brain can handle before we all die a horrible death.

Humor aside, Google around for folk remedies from around the world and remember that there are adults that believe in such things.  You'll both feel very intelligent and lose faith in mankind at the same time.

Pacific Rim kaiju designs keep man-in-suit basis

axehead-i09

io9 has another exclusive featurette focussing on Pacific Rim's kaiju.  In it, director Guillermo del Toro explains some of the ideas driving the kaiju designs.  They based them off of animals we would easily recognize, today, while being wholly unique.  And rather than stray too far into abstract designs, del Toro wanted to honor the classic kaiju of old by having the designers think about how a man would into this creature as a suit.  They all tend to follow this theme without really limiting the creativity behind them.

The team would do something of an American Idol every week for the kaiju, and I assume, the Jaegers as well.  Silhouettes they liked were developed into the kaiju we'll see on screen.

The video is only about three and a half minutes long, so click over and give it a viewing.  Really cool stuff!
