Hey Shack Fans, Sean drops another tidbit from the icy East coast:
A mere 16 years after the abomination of 1998 Godzilla will again reach American shores. This time for real, it seems! The first Official Teaser Trailer has been released, and I arranged an exclusive deal with Warner Brothers for a Monster Shack Official Teaser Link! (Dennis is doing all of the heavy technical lifting, but I consider that sort of backroom stuff to be unimportant.) (Ha ha!)
The trailer is good, and my giant-monster loving heart is starting to feel a faint resuscitation after the crushing disappointment it suffered lo, those many years ago. Two points in particular encourage a sense of optimism:
1. The military officer in the opening shots is no macho lunk-head, but the wonderful actor David Strathairn (Edward R. Murrow in “Good Night And Good Luck”).
2. The wee glimpse we get of Godzilla is enough to tell us we’ll get the real thing, and not a giant mutated iguana. This shocking instance of good sense in the filmmakers cannot be stressed too much.
Have a look!
