Godzilla Christmas Tree Breathes Fire On Tokyo Shoppers

They do Christmas a little differently in Japan. Mostly, with monsters. Or that seems to be what’s going on here in this photo, taken at the Aqua City Odaiba shopping mall in Tokyo, Japan…

The image appears to have originally snapped by unusuallife and yep, that’s a Christmas tree in the shape of Godzilla.

That’s not the only Godzilla Xmas decoration stomping around Aqua City Odaiba mall either. Here’s a photo of a light-up version captured by photographer Hiroharu Shizuya


Much-Needed Godzilla Reboot Gets A New Writer

I was one of the few people who actually had a pretty good time with the widely hated 1998 Godzilla rehash. That doesn’t mean I don’t recognize how shitty it is, but Hank Azaria does a lot for making this film watchable, and I mean come on, what else did you expect out of a Roland Emmerich film? Nonetheless, the sequel that film was left wide open for will never exist, and even though that movie was rough, Godzilla is a name that will get people’s attention, so it should come as no surprise that there’s a reboot on the way.

THR has it that this new take on the ravager of Japan has just signed on a new writer in the form of Max Borenstein. Borenstein doesn’t have a lot to his credit, just an upcoming film called The Seventh Son to star Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore, but with a story like Godzilla you don’t have to be all that creative. At the helm is Monsters director Gareth Edwards who will likely bring a human element to the story that people actually care about.
