Things are cookin’ just fine on the set of Legendary Pictures’ new take on Godzilla, and we have new goodies for you to check out! In this installment of GMG we have excerpts of an interview with Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull and even more images!
First up from Collider:
“We want to make sure that we’re connecting with our fan base,” says Tull. “We want to make sure that you’re appropriately surprised and have something to look forward to when you go to see the movie. You don’t want to see all the way behind the curtain, but we want to make sure that we’re connecting with our fan base. We want to make sure our fan base knows how passionate we are and how important it is to us to bring these things to life and that were just as big of fans as you guys are. We want to connect, and in a world of social media and the outlets we have, we want to come up with all kinds of ways to have fans share the excitement and the experience as it builds towards launch. It was very important for us to take it back to its original DNA in the first Japanese film, so just tonally it’s a much different movie. And with Godzilla, those of us who grew up with Godzilla, you kind of bring whatever pre-disposition you have to the movie and the experience. For us, all I can tell you is that we’re making the Godzilla movie that we want to see.”
