Update: Guilala Still (and Godzilla 3-D)

Some daikaiju updates from DreadCentral:

First, further to the recent Backbrain article regarding the new film, Girara-no Gyakushuu Touyaku Samitto Kiki Ippatsu [lit. Guilala’s Counter Attack: the Touyaku Summit One-Shot Crisis] (dir. Minoru Kawasaki) [aka The Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit], the website Gomorrahy has posted a still from the production — a still that seems to confirm the presence of at least one more kaiju.

Guilala still

Also, I have neglected to mention this: there has been some indication that Yoshimistsu Banno’s much-anticipated, but not altogether rock solid, sequel to Gojira tai Hedora [trans. Godzilla vs Hedorah] (1971; dir. Yoshimitsu Banno) [aka Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster (US, 1972)] is back on the cards. In a press release on an unrelated film, Brent Friedman of production company Electric Dreams Entertainment apparently listed Godzilla 3-D! as one of the projects he’s working on.

For those who don’t know, the film was planned as an iMax 3-D extravaganza, with the following plot statement coming from Banno:

The world’s largest monster comes to the worlds largest screen format in “Godzilla: 3D To The Max.” In this environmentally conscious effort Godzilla is again matched against Hedorah (Renamed Deathla for this film) a monster who lives on pollution and human waste. The two monsters duke it out in a free for all that begins in the Brazilian rain forest and climaxes on the streets of Las Vegas. Like in “Godzilla: Final Wars” a lot of location shooting will take place in areas stretching from Brazil to Las Vegas.

Not much by way of confirmation, but it’s something.

    This new pic of ‘Guilala’ looks fantastic!! I, like many fans, have been concerned about the look of the new suit,but from this pic it really seems to work in the actual film.It does seem to show another kaiju in the pic as well.One that doesn’t look much like ‘Den Ace’ either,although I would still be willing to bet on an appearance of that character too.I can’t tell you how excited I am about this new project and the aspect of multiple kaijus,but I really hope that none of them steal the show.This is still ‘Guilala’s’ film and I hope that the director realizes that.I’m not too keen on the comedy/spoof idea.I still think that a straight forward take would be better,but the character is pretty wacky and so is this director.Maybe it’s the perfect combination and he’s exactly the one for this film??
