Summer 2014 preview
The temperatures are rising, the coats are going into storage, and the TV spots are getting more prevalent. That's right, it's almost time for summer movie season again. The months of May through August are traditionally the biggest in the multiplex calendar, but the lines have become increasingly blurred in recent years—if "Noah" and "Divergent" didn't kick off blockbuster season, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" certainly did, and that was three weeks ago.

Godzilla
In case you haven't noticed, the forthcoming "Godzilla" doesn't have a whiff, suggestion or note of the campiness some of the previous incarnations of the movie monster may have had. And there's a very specific reason for that.

With "Godzilla" stomping into cinemas in just over a month, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are taking a unique approach when it comes to marketing the film — not only are they selling the monster, they are putting director Gareth Edwards right up front as part of the campaign. A series of featurettes continue to be unveiled, with Edwards highlighting various aspects of his first blockbuster outing, the latest finds him sharing how he got the job in the first place.

There are few movies this summer that can instill intrigue just with a single sound, but "Godzilla" sure can. The big budget leap from "Monsters" director Gareth Edwards arrives on the big screen next month, and he's been front and center of the campaign so far, sharing his enthusiasm and his pedigree with newcomers to the franchise.

April is here, which means blockbuster season is now just a few short weeks away (and some would argue it starts this weekend with the release of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"). Either way, the drama of the awards season is behind us, and the special effects spectacles are ahead, with the studios doing everything they can to hook you. And that means grabbing you in the comfort of your own home with big-screen-worthy TV spots.

It's not often one can get truly excited for a tentpole, when it seems every big budget movie is merely a set up for the next one. And while we're sure everyone involved with "Godzilla" is thinking franchise, that doesn't diminish the fact that Gareth Edwards' film looks an exciting and gripping take on the material, and one not necessarily geared to move toys. And certainly, as far as this summer goes, it's one that's higher on a radar than most other studio fare coming down the line.

This is the kind of tentpole we can get behind. In a couple months, "Godzilla" will be stomping back onto screens around the world, but the movie brings one major ingredient with it that's missing from the Marvel movies, and other remakes, sequels and spinoffs: freshness. Yes, it's a new take on the famous monster that scared audiences decades ago, but yet in the hands of director Gareth Edwards, it feels revitalized, new and authentic. That being said, he did reveal an interesting influence when approaching the movie.
