Seriously..I am more excited about this than I thought I could ever possibly be!
Oh I think they are doing just that, from the trailer I saw it looks like a horror movie, and Gojira looks unstoppable, so it is about as far from that '98 piece of shit as they could get.
Although the cartoon that spawned from the '98 film that Zilla could fight, plus he used his brain alot more that Godzilla did, not to say Godzilla is not smart, he is but Zilla in the cartoon jusdt took a more tactical approach to his battles.
Anyways the movie looks awesome, I can't wait for may 2014.
It would be neat if the original Gojira was canon with this new film, just like the Toho films all are.
