They said "It's alive" not "Its a lion." There is a youtube video where someone disects the whole trailer to debunk some things. In a few parts
they slow down the audio. Slowed down, it's much clearer that he says "It's alive. It's huge." In addition, they use the monster growl to
contrast the Godzilla growl to show that, unless Paramount had a coup de eta and secured the rights to Godzilla, and they radically changed his growl,
the two are not even close.
I thought Godzilla too when I first saw the trailer.
As for Slusho, I think this is sort of filler. JJ is going to use the whole traditional all giant monsters are from Japan angle. When you think about
the trailer, and how they were wishing Rob "good luck in Japan," not to mention all the Asian influenced art and novelties in his apartment, you can
see that there is definitely some connection to the orient. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a character from japan who breaks down what exactly
the monster is.
I don't know if Slusho will directly play into the movie, but it's going to flesh out the "universe" so to speak. I think are more parts of that
website are "updated for you" we'll be able to piece together how it connects more.
That being said, JJ mentioned that there were a few sites out there on the internet they set up. At the time we'd only found 1-18-08, and now we've
found Slusho...who knows what else we need to find before this starts to make sense.
One other thought...this might just be a disaster film. Follow me on this...instead of a traditional movie about a disaster (in this case a giant
monster attack) we see a movie that reflects back on the attack. Perhaps it's someone who is piecing together movies, pictures, interviews, of what
happened that day. Like, the first Godzilla movie. It wasn't until the later movies that anything started to fight Godzilla. What if this just sets
up the monster. Then, a few years later, we see our counter attack in some other movie/sequel. Maybe he's just creating a new "universe" with this
film that he can introduce other characters and events into in the long run. Just some thoughts.
