Godzilla 2014: “The Stonewater Tape” Links Godzilla To Bikini Atoll H-Bomb Testing

gbackgrd Godzilla 2014 is, itself, a giant movie production that, when extras and other studio employees like publicists are considered, not to mention vendors providing such things as food, involves almost 1,000 people. Right now, Godzilla is in post production, and over 100 people are working feverish hours to meet and eventual May 16th 2014 release date.

But who are the people working on Godzilla? I took the time to gather information to answer that question, in part with the help of the IMDB database, which one has to pay for, and other items I’ve slotted in where I could.

What I can tell you is that the production as of now involves Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures, as well as Disruption Entertainment (owned by Mary Parent), and of course Toho Company out of Tokyo, Japan. What I don’t know is how this list is going to change when the Warner Bros / Legendary Pictures partnership ends this year, and NBC / Universal takes over where Warner Bros left off.

Even with that, the news is Warner Bros will stick around to distribute Godzilla for Legendary for 2014, then that’s that. But if I’m NBC / Universal, I’d love to get at least a piece of that action, even if it’s just from the marketing perspective, where help is sorely needed right now.

Considering that we’re talking about Godzilla, it should be of concern to any real fan that the movie’s not getting the buzz that Spider Man II is generating, or The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, for that matter – the buzz meter for that flick is off the charts.

Who Is Working On Godzilla?

Before the list of people working on Godzilla is presented, let’s talk special effects. There has been a lot of questioning about special effects houses, so with that I’ve been able to determine that Double Negative, CafeFX, Amalgamated Dynamics Inc., The Third Floor, and MPC (Moving-Picture) are working together on that. And no, there’s no mention of the employment of WETA, the New Zealand special effects house made famous by Peter Jackson and his Lord Of The Rings series.

Indeed, it’s been tough going for vfx houses, in part because there are now so many of them chasing not a lot of work considering their numbers. The days where one house, Industrial Light and Magic, dominated every new blockbuster are over.

But I digress; here’s the list: the full credits for Godzilla to date. And I’ll update it as more information comes along.
