Bioshock movie back on?

bioshockCould the long talked about Bioshock movie be back on? It could be a possibility, as Sony Pictures has recently registered several domain names. Kotaku reported that Sony registered the domain names bioshock-movie.com, bioshock-movie.net, and bio-shock.net. Sony Pictures wasn’t originally involved in bringing the game to the big screen, but as all three of these domains have Sony Pictures listed under their registration information it now appears that they may be doing so.

Originally, Universal Pictures was going to develop the film back in 2008, and it was going to helmed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean). Verbinski ended up backing out a year later, when production halted due to budget concerns and the fact the director wanted an R rating...

1964 sees a double shot of the King of the Monsters

Following the gvt2success of King Kong vs. Godzilla, 1964 was notable in the big guy’s history on the silver screen because it is the only year in which two Godzilla movies were released. It was also the first time that the films weren’t radically altered between the Japanese and the American versions. The first film released in 1964, Mothra vs. Godzilla (released in the US as Godzilla vs. the Thing) marked the last time for the Showa era of Godzilla movies where Godzilla was portrayed as the bad guy (he would return to being a menace in 1985)...

Godzilla- Two titans of the big screen come together

kkvgGodzilla may very well be one of the most popular giant movie monsters to appear on the silver screen, but he wasn’t the first. In 1933, powered by the stop motion effects from Willis O’Brien, King Kong thrilled audiences as the giant ape battled dinosaurs on his home Skull Island and later fought the army in the streets of New York City,all the while protecting the object of his affections, Ann Darrow. Son of Kong followed shortly thereafter, but the big ape himself didn’t appear on the big screen for another 29 years...

Godzilla returns in his first sequel

godzillaraidsagain3In between Gojira (1954) and the Americanized version Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956), a sequel was rushed to the screen in Japan under the name of Gojira no gyakushu in 1955, which was later released to American audiences (again with inserted scenes) in 1959 under the name Godzilla Raids Again. Director Motoyoshi Oda took over as director for the sequel, which was the last in the franchise to be shot in black and white and the first to pit Godzilla against another giant monster. Most fans will agree that the Japanese version of this film (if you can find it) is the definitive version, as the American version pasted in scenes which made little sense and produced a more than likely unintended comedic effect...

Godzilla- The beginning of a legend

godzillakotmArguably one of the most popular monsters in the history of cinema, Godzilla turns 60 this year.
