Godzilla movie

Only 30 seconds and we get to know who our human surrogates are and we get a clear look at the Thunder Lizard his/her/itself! Take a gander at the new TV spot for the Godzilla movie coming in May.

After a rash of mini trailers, Warner Brothers has released an extended trailer that actually makes it look pretty good. So, how many people are going to see this because of Godzilla and how many because of Walter White?

Godzilla will be released May 16th.

We found this myriad of Bobas on the Facebook page for Nerds do it Better. Look at all the Bobas! There’s a Boba holding boba! And a Boba Vet, with an Ewok wearing a cone of shame! Awww....

Man do we ever have some links today! You want Constantine? We got him. You want Godzilla? We’ve got him, too. You want Constantine battling Godzilla? Well, OK, we don’t have that... but we do have a True Detective/Alan Moore crossover!

[Plus the President of Marvel talks Guardians of the Galaxy!]

We haven’t been this excited about the third installment of a video game RPG since Funcoland got Final Fantasy III in stock! This screenshot comes from a series of animated 8-bit gifs created by Buzzfeed that illustrate the most brutal deaths in Game of Thrones, from the first to third seasons.

Your morning roundup is setting Beyonce against zombies, warning NASA about its murderous new A.I., and boasting about how it knows UNIX.

Godzilla trailer

Warner Bros. has finally released a new, more extensive trailer for the Godzilla reboot! (Although considering the dialogue in the trailer it might be more fitting to call this a sequel?) Get your fill of the biggest, baddest monster of them all. And of Bryan Cranston as the Crazy Scientist Whom No One Believes, who spends the entire trailer yelling at Skyler.

Aw, poor Jon Snow. Not only does he know nothing, but now he’s being publicly told to see the T.A., and the professor spelled his name wrong. Poor bastard can’t catch a break. (This moment of epic fantasy meeting academic reality is brought to you by Lincoln Michel, coeditor of Gigantic Worlds.)

Unlike Mr. Snow, Morning Roundup knows many things! For instance, it knows the Godzilla is HUGE, that BioShock is coming back, and that Matt Smith is one of the finest Time Lords in the universe. Read on!

[Plus, at the bottom, there are kittens. Adorable, soul-restoring kittens.]

Godzilla and kitten historic peace accord

Christmas is a time of peace between all humans, and in this day and age, when the concept of humanity becomes so increasingly variable we’d like to think that Christmas is also a time of peace between all things in this glorious universe. Thank you, kitten and Godzilla, for showing us the way.

Your morning roundup is forcing the season 6 Buffy writers to defend their choices, imagining Tim Burton’s Doctor Who, and trying to stop actual trains by dressing as Gandalf.

Kaiju

Pacific Rim is out, and is being popularly hailed as Guillermo del Toro’s love letter to the giant monster (“kaiju”) movies of his youth—for that reason alone everybody everywhere should salute Mr. del Toro.

Let’s talk about the subjects of del Toro’s love letter. But let’s establish some ground rules too, because otherwise we’ll be here all day and I have some movies to watch. I’ll limit myself to kaiju that 1) have appeared in a live action motion picture (kaiju on TV are cool, but the big screen is where they are, well, the biggest), 2) are not just large but insanely larger than normal human scale (a great white shark is not a kaiju, a mega shark maybe is), and 3) that pose an existential threat on at least a citywide scale (King Kong might mess up 5th Avenue a little, but he’s not going to destroy New York City). Yes, this disqualifies from consideration Ultraman and his kaiju of the week, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, Kroll, the housecat and spider from The Incredible Shrinking Man, and almost any bad guy from either Voltron series, but all are worthy entries.

Pacific Rim

Some audiences have found the trailers to Pacific Rim confusing. Giant monsters and giant robots, what? I’ve been pumped from the first trailer featuring a giant robot rocket-punching a giant monster. Pacific Rim relies on some tips of its spectacularly large hat to various precursors from monster movies and science fiction cinema. It presents a particular case of the more general problem that creators of genre fiction face—how much do I lean on a shared knowledge of popular (geek) culture?

This past Thursday a giant styrofoam head turned up in the Hudson River. Our suspicion is that it fell through from an alternate 2013 timeline where the Roman Empire never fell. (Or it’s detritus from a Mardi Gras float.) We’re probably right about this.

Cinema's Best and Worst Dinosaurs Land Before Time

For as long as there have been movies, dinosaurs have been roaring and stomping across the screen. Gertie the dinosaur was one of the first popular animated characters, and stop-motion pioneer Willis O’Brien had an unabashed love for prehistoric life that he brought to life in silent shorts as well as classics like 1925’s The Lost World and the original King Kong. Jurassic Park later picked up the spirit of these early forays, presenting audiences with what are still some of the most spectacular movie dinosaurs ever. Since the 1993 blockbuster is briefly back in theaters starting today, it’s fitting to look back at a short list of cinema’s best and worst Mesozoic monsters.

For many of us, prom was probably a little like the light-cycle scenes in Tron and Tron: Legacy; full of bright lights, a race careening towards a destination we don’t understand, and somehow all of it was unreal/really a dream. But now you could reclaim those memories by wearing the Tron Prom Dress. (We know this thing isn’t new, but we really, really love it. Look at more pictures here. Also, one Tor.com staffer may or may not have threatened to shave his beard and wear make-up if someone bought him the Tron Prom Dress.)

Your daily offsite links are so off-the-grid, man. Highlights include.

  1. Hoverboards still don’t work on water. Unless you got power. Or Ebay.
  2. What Lawrence Kasdan has to say about writing Never Been Kissed 2 Star Wars stand-alones.
  3. Is Downton Abbey like The Walking Dead?

Star Trek: The Next Generation wardrobe and make-up screentests

Take the early wardrobe and make-up tests for Star Trek: The Next Generation, set them to creepy music, and let the scare times roll in. Brent Spiner has never looked shinier or more terrifying. (Like, literally he hasn’t. They thankfully toned down his look for the actual who.) Check out the full video here for more old school Next Generation. (via io9)

Your daily offsite links are programmed in multiple techniques. Highlights include:

That highly anticipated Doctor Who,  Inspector Spacetime, Untitled Web Series is coming! It was first seen as a spoof on a TV show called Community.   On second thought, it is a brand new idea, and no one has ever heard of it.

The rest of your off-site links aren’t pretending to be anything that they’re not.

Today’s highlights include:

  1. Sort of spoiler about someone who is popping up in The Dark Knight Rises
  2. A certain pop star wants to be in Blade Runner 2
  3. Ant-Man. Yep. That is a real movie that is happening.
