Yahoo! Search Engines Now Linking To Godzilla 2012!

Written By: Ken Hulsey

I just wanted to post a quick message noting that Yahoo and Google are now listing this site through their search engines.

As I figured, it took almost a week for the site to get listed. Thanks to all the sites and message boards out there who linked to us first!

Oh, and the picture. Well I looked for a cool image of Godzilla sitting at the computer, but didn't find one that I liked.

This one is from Thailand back in 2008. It shows a guy passed out under a Godzilla statue out in front of a ramen restaurant.

This is what I wrote about the pic at the time:

It looks like Godzilla has taken it upon himself to punish rowdy drunks in Bangkok, Thailand. Okay.....maybe not. In actuality this person, who had been celebrating Chinese New Year with a few too many, found a comfortable place under this statue of Godzilla to take a little nap. Of course, from the expression on Big G's face, and the position of the drunk, it looks like the monster just laid out an ass whoopin. Then again maybe the sleeping man should be more concerned that the "King of all Monsters" may be getting ready to "blast a dooky." It seems likely that the man, in his enhanced state, thought that Godzilla would protect him while he sleeps. Regardless, it makes for a great photograph.

I have tried to find out more about the Godzilla statue. I honestly never heard of it before. I have read two conflicting stories that place it either outside a bar or outside a ramen house on Thaniya Road at the corner of Silom Road. I will have to do a little more digging on this one.

Burbank, CA – March 29, 2010 – Legendary Pictures announced today that they will develop and produce a new film based on Toho Company’s famed GODZILLA character. Through the terms of the agreement, Legendary Pictures has acquired the rights to produce a movie inspired by Toho’s Godzilla, a franchise the Japanese company created and has nurtured for over fifty years.

Toho’s GODZILLA franchise boasts one of the most widely recognized film creatures worldwide, resulting in a series of books, television programs, video games and more than 25 films worldwide. Legendary intends to approach the film and its characters in the most authentic manner possible. The company will, in the near future, announce a filmmaker to helm the film for an intended 2012 release. The film will fall under the company’s co-production and co-financing deal with Warner Bros. Toho will distribute the film in Japan."

"Godzilla" is coming back -- this time, with Legendary Pictures taking the lead, co-producing and co-financing with Warner Bros. for release in 2012.

Legendary announced Monday it had obtained rights to the iconic monster character from Japan's Toho Co., which has overseen more than 25 "Godzilla" films. Toho will release the pic in Japan.

Legendary said it's planning to announce a director shortly.

In addition to Legendary, producers on the new film will be Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Brian Rogers. Yoshimitsu Banno, Kenji Okuhira and Doug Davison will exec produce.

"Godzilla is one of the world's most powerful pop culture icons, and we at Legendary are thrilled to be able to create a modern epic based on this long-loved Toho franchise," said Thomas Tull, Chairman and CEO of Legendary. "Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has."

Legendary noted the film will fall under its co-production and co-financing deal with Warner Bros. Legendary's productions with Warners have included "The Dark Knight," "300" and "The Hangover."

Speculation about a new "Godzilla" has been active since last summer. The Bloody Disgusting web site reported in August that the project was in development.
