The “last” Godzilla film press conference today was BLAH….that is, the news conference at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan in Tokyo. Goji-chan did have a news worthy quote: The word for this Godzilla film is “SAIKO” not “SAIGO.” (‘best’ not ‘last’). Thus Toho Films admitted their scam with the “last Gozilla film” hype. To quote a journalist buddy of mine…..
I can say without doubt, it was the worst entertainment-related news conference I have ever seen in my life.
While blabbering endlessly for hours about the artistic and other dubious merits of Toho’s special effects, the company said it aims to provide entertainment value to rival Hollywood blockbusters.
With all the babble about entertainment, admittedly made in flat tones with no emotion, the four Toho reps and their yakuza in the background did not emit a single smile for over an hour. The conference was bland, dull and boring, which I truly hope is not a reflection of the movie they’ve made
