The common advice given to writers is "write what you know," but in Hollywood that advice has been tweaked a little bit. Over at Team Downey, the adage seems to be "develop what you know," and they're doing just that.

Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.’ “Godzilla” (our review) did so well this weekend (almost $200 million worldwide) that by Sunday they had already announced a sequel was in the works. And of course, with a massive opening like that, it’s to be expected. The monster movie is a triumph, at the very least, for director Gareth Edwards. His directorial career started with “Monsters," a super lo-fi, low-budget monster movie about an unlikely pair of strangers trying to travel from Central America to the United States, in a world (and particularly the border of Mexico), now infested with gigantic creatures, that resembles a police state.

"Godzilla" stomps into theatres tomorrow night, and while our own Rodrigo Perez didn't dig the film, saying that it "abandons most of its absorbing emotional legwork for a fairly rote and straightforward rock ‘em, sock ‘em monster movie," the latter quotient is what most people are likely for. And we suppose on that end, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' blockbuster will deliver. But in case you're on the fence about checking it out, some new promo material is here to kick you in the pants to buy a ticket.

It’s only a week before audiences get to decide for themselves however, and so WB has continued their marketing push with a new clip and TV spot.

Godzilla
Popular culture has obviously changed dramatically since 1954 when Toho Studios released Ishirō Honda’s inaugural kaiju movie, “Godzilla.” Originally a horror/science-fiction movie, “Godzilla” and the subsequent Toho Studio movies (all 28 of them), were never really big on character. Various scientists were always tasked with stopping the gigantic monster—or assisting him when he veered toward hero, facing off against rival “evil” monsters—but the draw was always the visual spectacle of Godzilla destroying and battling his way through each movie.

"The great thing with a project like 'Godzilla' is that when you’re doing a movie like this that involves a monster that’s so beloved, you suddenly get access to the greatest visual artists out there working today. So I was very lucky in terms of that," director Gareth Edwards told Bloody Disgusting last summer. "...in terms of designing 'Godzilla,' we spent about an entire year just working on that aspect alone. You never quite feel like you have enough time but I wouldn’t change a single thing with the design. I’m so incredibly happy with it."
