monsterzero2Much like the world around him, Godzilla found himself embroiled in one conflict or another throughout the 1960s. Outside of the theater, people only had to turn on their TV sets to witness one type of fight or another.

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...

It was also the first time that the films weren’t radically altered between the Japanese and the American versions.
