Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull talks Pacific Rim and Godzilla
We're only a few months away from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim hitting our cinema screens and production has begun on Gareth Edward's reboot of the Godzilla franchise. With all the monster madness coming from Legendary Pictures, CEO Thomas Tull took some time to speak to Collider about the upcoming kaiju flicks.
On the subject of Godzilla, Tull once again confirms that they are aiming for the dark tones of the original as opposed to the campy nature of the 60s and 70s sequels, "it was very important for us to take it back to its original DNA in the first Japanese film, so just tonally it’s a much different movie. And with Godzilla, those of us who grew up with Godzilla, you kind of bring whatever pre-disposition you have to the movie and the experience. For us, all I can tell you is that we’re making the Godzilla movie that we want to see."
