Over the weekend Japanese Godzilla fans took to the Internet to call the new American Godzilla… well… a fatty! It’s time for a bit of a wake-up call for the land of the rising pork-bun!
“Whichever way you look at it, he’s an American fatty,” posted one fan after promo images and trailers went online in Japan.” He got fat in America on cola and pizza,” tweeted another fan. “He’s couch potato Godzilla”; “It’s got no neck”; “He Supersized”; and “Marshmallow-Godzilla?” were just a few of the reactions from fans.
Some were less harsh about the new Godzilla but still unimpressed: “It’s chubby and cute,” wrote one. “It looks like a seal,” said another. Others were simply more forgiving: “I’m looking forward to this. Well, everyone gets middle-age spread.”
Oh yeah? Well, call me crazy, but your Godzilla was pretty friggin’ portly too! Think we’re wrong? Stuff this in your sushi roll!
From visionary new director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless.
Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, Yuki Morita, and C.J. Adams star in the film, which has been rated PG-13 for “intense sequences of destruction, mayhem and creature violence.”
