    Now I do not have any REAL details, according to this Japanese website and its translation, Gamera is coming back in a reboot film. While Godzilla is going Hollywood, it seems Gammy will remain Japanese.

    KPA!? AUGUST!? SOMEONE!? We could use a little clarification, here!

    I'm not.

    From the translation of the details given:

    Didn't even know that there were inquiries about a Gamera reboot. Isn't Hakaider that roboman from the same guy that made the Zeiram films?

    Yeah. He's originally from a Japanese TV show called Kikaider. Hakaider was originally his main baddie, or something, and the film is a spinoff.

    Cool. Also got the same translation from the link. Wonder how they'll handle this reboot.

    lol PREDICTED IT! gammy's 50th is next year and it would be hard to not let him have a birthday bash....

    whatever they do it needs to be more heisei gamera and less gamera the brave...or else dont expect the turtle to fare too well again.

    From what I've been told, Gamera 3, despite all the hype and critical acclaim it received, didn't do much much better than Gamera the Brave at the Japanese box office. That, coupled with the fact that Japanese audiences still seem to be tired of kaiju films (even Pacific Rim didn't do to well in Japan), means that emulating the Heisei Gamera films won't necessarily guarantee this movie being a success.

    I'm not really sure what I want from this movie. I seem to be one of those few who liked Gamera the Brave better than the Heisei Gamera movies, but I don't see them following that movie's path after its poor box office showing:(

    you may be right about G3 to be honest im not positive myself, however i wish i could agree with your feelings about GTB...i REALLY wanted to like that movie...this is coming from someone who even loves the showa series of films...and it had a couple nice moments but most of it i just couldnt stomach...the first 5 minutes was the best part of the film in my eyes...

    well... i hope they do a good job. Gamera the Brave wasn't bad... but was kinda missing the edge the Heisei series has

    I hope this is more than just a rumor, but I do have my doubts.
