David was in the Gareth Edwards 2014 American-made GODZILLA film starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Elizabeth Olsen. He played the part of Admiral William Stenz, part of the constantly present military side that in the old Toho films trying to take out the big green titular anti-hero. Having been a big fan of the original Showa/Heisei/Millennium series, I was a bit doubtful as to whether this film was worthy of the name. I did like the 1998 Matthew Broderick film (though I know a lot of people don’t like it) but the one thing about this film that made it reasonable was David’s always present gravitas. I wasn’t that thrilled by the amount of screen time Godzilla didn’t have. It seemed Edwards and Legendary Pictures didn’t want us to get a good look at the big guy, and only utilized him in almost a sixteenth of the film considering the over three quarters the original Toho Series Godzilla often received. I know it’s a little sacrosanct to state something negative on a fansite, but again having been a fan of the original series since my first film back in 1969, I feel I have the amount of gravitas of my own to state that. However, considering the amount of screen time David didn’t have, I have to say that he brought his A-Game as usual.
Sorry for the lack of updates…again, but a ton of things going on in my life and I’m trying hard to get things updated on all my sites. Unfortunately best laid plans and all. I have for you some screencaps of David from the new GODZILLA American reboot. Still no word as to who David is playing, but by the looks of the trailer looks like he’s playing a military man. Who’d a thunk? I also will be giving the trailer from Youtube. Enjoy.
