Jared Harris, Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pingue round out the cast.  Akinnuoye-Agbaje recently wrapped on his role of Algrim/Kurse in Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World and George Tillman Jr.’s The Inevitable Defeat of Mister And Pete.  He was last seen on screen in Walter Hill’s Bullet to the Head.

    Oh my God, they’re actually making this fucking movie? Like, this isn’t a joke or a prank?

    You’d think the twenty thousand Godzilla movies they made before this that all sucked dino dick would clue them in that GIANT MONSTER MOVIES FUCKING SUCK! Only Cloverfield was good and that’s because it didn’t shove some shitty monster in your face every ten seconds. It was dark, gritty and realistic and focused on the characters instead of some sweaty fat guy in a alligator suit.

    This movie will blow, fuck it.

      Shut up (Dafuq)

      Just because you don’t find it enjoyable doesn’t mean they suck. I don’t enjoy Indiana Star-Trek films or James Bond films but guess what millions of others do an you don’t see me bashing the franchise.

      Godzilla has 28 other movies, 29 if you actually count Hollywoods first 1998 abomination. Obviously the franchise has something special about it to keep fans coming back an warrant so many sequels.

      By the way the fact that you enjoy ”Cloverfield” doesn’t help your post. That film was nothing special at all.

      • Dafuq?

        No, you shut up.

        And it isn’t an opinion. It’s fact. The crappiness of Godzilla movies is scientifically proven by the fact that everyone with an IQ over four hates them. The fact that you don’t like any of those top rated franchises just proves my point. You’re a retard with shit taste in movies, go away little boy. Go cry to your mommy and daddy and leave the adults to discuss real movies.

    Like, who the fuck watches Godzilla movies other than eight-year-old kids? Fat, chocolate stained eight-year-old kids who get beat up and have their lunch money by the cool kids while even other uncool kids stand by the sidelines and laugh at them because they’re THAT pathetic?

    Shit, can we get some actual movies for adults? It’s all shitty kids stuff about super heroes and robots and monsters. Where are the movies for thinking, intelligent people like me? Movies with good plots, good characters, good stories, and good actors?

      You sound like the biggest bitch in the world right now. Get over yourself.

      I feel sorry for anybody who can’t just watch a movie for fun. You must live a sad existence. You remind me of this old geezer I once knew who stared at nothing for hours and refused to do anything remotely enjoyable even for his age. Pathetic.

      • Dafuq?

        Fun? You call piece of shit Godzilla movies fun?

        Kill yourself, because your continued existance is lowering the IQ of the human race you little moron.

    Yeah, because someone liking something you dislike makes said person stupid….

    Seriously, you should learn about these great things called opinions. People can like what you don’t and you can like what we don’t. And besides, you’re the one acting like a child here, calling your opponents “fat 8 year old retards” people to kill themselves because *gasp* they like something you dont!

    Grow up, Dafuq.
