Awwwwwww, yeeeeeeah. [ETA: Whoops. Looks like EVERYONE beat me to it. My bad].

Okay, both times someone put up a kaiju poster, I thought they had added a kaiju-maker app.

 

I WANT A KAIJU-MAKER AND I WANT IT NOW!!

post #854 of 1395
I think that those two kaiju will be the primarily featured ones, seems like they are the ones in all the money shots. Rounding a corner on those designs, starting to see some variety.

What's the concensus on Leatherback's accent?
post #856 of 1395
Better than Mads Mikkelsen's in Hannibal.
post #857 of 1395
The monsters we've seen so far could also be the ones that the post-production teams finished first.

The other main one I've seen is 'Knifehead'. It was in the first trailer; just after that scene where Cherno Alpha lands in the water, there's a shot where it kind of lunges into frame.

 

I like the designs. They aren't that colourful, (ie. not like the neon creatures in Avatar) but they have a lot of glowing bits, multiple eyes, crests, moving parts. I'm an avid reader of BPRD (Guy Davis) and also the Hellboy move art books (Wayne Barlowe and others) so these creatures look like they come from that heritage.

Pah! Bet you wouldn't sass the accent if you knew what 'worky ticket' actually meant.

 

In the meantime, suffer the judgmental stare of Ridley Scott:

We'll call Worky our resident Geordimeister from here on out.

post #861 of 1395

I thought that was Schwartz?

post #862 of 1395

Sorry, thought it hadn't been posted yet. Never mind.

 

And if PR is a box office hit I want to start a petition to get PSYCHO HOSER put into the next movie.

 

Also, we've only seen 3-4 Kaiju from the trailers. There's more than that in the movie from all reports.

Whaaat?

 

OK Schwartz, let's settle this. Byker Grove, after school, to the death.

 

We'll use the Geordie Jaegers: Haddaway and Shite (I wish the Jaeger designer app worked on my work computer...)

Wondering if this will make a better WWZ than WWZ.

Geordie Kaiju name would be Spuggi

 

Haddaway and Shite's pilots would, of course, need to be PJ and Duncan.

 

Another Jaegar would be The Brown Bottle (fuck, I am SO designing that when I get home).

 

Need some more regional Jaegar's.  

 

The Cockney one could be The Dry Slap.

 

The Glaswegian one could be the GetTaeFuck, or maybe the Bawbag.

 

The Scouse one would be the "Areyoustartin?eh?eh?eh?eh?"

 

etc etc etc.

post #867 of 1395

The Yorkshire Jaeger: Greasy Ferret

 

The Kent Jaeger would, naturally, be a Jagger.

Christ, stick a lightbulb in Keef's mouth and he'd practically qualify as a Kaiju already.

 

 

Meanwhile, the Netherlands are also covered. They have a Jugger:

That behind the scenes clip made me happy in the pants region.  

 

Apparently the first cut of the movie was three hours long:

On the cutting room floor? Mexico's Jaeger.

post #871 of 1395

 

Just a fraction of the carnage caused by Newcie Brown Ale on a weekend on the Toon

post #874 of 1395

By the way, 'Stacker Pentecost' is the gruffest, manliest, darkest, broodingest hero-est name I think I have ever heard.

post #875 of 1395

Sorry, but  U.K. Jaeger should be called THE LEMMY.  Fucker would be unstoppable.

post #876 of 1395
Why has no one made a Jaeger... Bomb yet?
post #877 of 1395

My chilean pride is wrecked by the fact that Chile, despite being pretty much one of the countries with the longest pacific coast, has no official Jager; hell, peru having one makes no sense even from a political/economical standpoint.

Also, if the rim bursts open at the end and Cthulhu pops up, it would be a true mindfuck (a coworker has pointed out that the film does reminds him of an rpg that involved the mythos and giant mechs)

Finally a replacement for oldbrucewayne.gif!

 

Also, theres a PR wiki out there, and seems theres a movie based game coming out...no idea about that.

post #879 of 1395
Well, the Mexican storyline is a bit... uncomfortable for me. The story of two convicts paid to pilot the Mexican Jaeger is a bit weird. Was one of the convicts Trejo? Either way, still weird.

Pretty sure there already was one.

The RONNIE WOOD would also work well. It'll look fucked up once things are over but it'll sure as hell keep going.

No that's a different game but I think it was this one:

Please tell me that the Japanese one is called JET JAGUAR.

I submit the SONIC TOWNSHEND, complete with a kaiju obliterating Sonic Riffer Cannon.

post #886 of 1395
He's a ripoff of Jet Jaguar I forget his name it's been so long since I've played this. It's super fun though! King of the Monsters is probably the best city destroying game ever so much fun!
post #887 of 1395

Ahem.

 

 

It's a bloody crime that this didn't become a franchise.  Amazing game.

THE LEMMY would crush all of these with his nuclear wart blast and toxic nicotine spray.

post #889 of 1395

Here's hoping this is our generations's War of the Gargantuas and not Son of Godzilla. 

 

The destruction porn angle of this movie doesn't bother me like it did in MOS. Clearly this is a sci fi world at war. MOS was supposed to be about a hero, instead it was about deconstructing a hero. I like what GDT is trying to say about the adventure genre being underserved for a long time, and clearly Lone Ranger is just going to be another 'there's no such thing as a competent hero' subgenre we've been seeing of late. I want to cheer a character because of their competence, not because they lucked out somehow despite their overwhelming flaws.

That was a big thing wrong about THE LEGEND OF THE LONE RANGER (1981).  He was a lousy shot, so Tonto suggested that he use silver bullets because they were more accurate.  Seriously, THAT'S the reason why he uses silver bullets.

So are we looking at Armie Hammer as the next generation's Klinton Spilsbury? And I didn't have to look up that poor guy's name. 

 

Truly where have al the heroes gone? No wonder the Marvel movies are making bank, they seem to be the only ones presenting a product people crave.

post #892 of 1395

Little known fact, I am actually Klinton Spilsbury.

Wait wait wait "Destruction porn" Really? Really? Please tell me you're using that term as a complete joke because that's what it is.

 

Attaching the "porn" prefix to something is probably the laziest and most unintelligent trend I've seen online in quite some time.

post #894 of 1395

Yeah, it's total laziness porn.

Well, Senor Fett, here's the reference from Urban Dictionary....

 

Destruction Porn 
6 up2 down
 
Bought to light during an episode of, "The Colbert Report," Destruction Porn brings to light any movie that involves great lengths of explosions, demolitions, collapses, or anything else that can be decimated. See also disaster porn, or anything created by Michael Bay.
"...one day computer graphics would strip movies of any plot or characterization and turn them into mindless orgies of destruction porn." Steven Colbert, The Colbert Report

John - "Dude you want to go see that new Michael Bay movie?"

Chris - "Yeah. $200 million in destruction porn? Im down!"

John - "Just keep it in the pants this time, ok?

 

 

I'll be sure to let Mr Colbert know of your objections to his laziness. I'm certain he will be rendered speechless. In the meantime, let's not consider a conousseur of Professional Wrestling to be the arbiter of good taste. And I say that as a fan of pro wrestling for over forty years. That's why I like Kaiju films and what this movie brings to the table. I like the idea of a jaeger using a foreign object in a old fashioned Extra Large Texas Death Match.

Not that Klinton Spilsbury.  Now that would be weird.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, I hear some of Guillermo del Toro's best friends are Mexicans.
