Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here. I am going to go out of my way to get my son hooked on Godzilla movies before this opens so that we can go together. I’m sure my wife won’t want any part of it, but that’s fine. It would be awesome to just go and geek out over 3D kaiju. When you follow the link below, check out the website for Kerner Research. I'm rooting for these guys. It looks like a great company, and I hope to see really innovative, amazing things from them in the future. In short, this story makes me as happy as happy can be:
Heya Harry and gang, The long rumored Godzilla-IMAX movie is moving forward. Looks like a bunch of ex-ILM employees(many of whom are self professed Ultraman and Godzilla geeks) are providing all the major special effects for the film while another Japanese company will be providing the funding for the film. Director Banno has secured Toho Company's blessing on using Godzilla so there's no worry about that. When the project was first announced a few years ago, it was targeted as a movie being made specifically for IMAX theaters. Don't know if that will be the case now or not. What's interesting is that it seems like they'll be using some type of super "James Cameron?" cool 3-D camera/effects work for this. Will this be a preview of sorts of what's to come with Jim's "Avatar" technology? Anyways, I'd scream man in suit, man in suit but I'm sure you'll have that covered..... -Rob(no fancy alias) D.
