Some fun tidbits here. For example, that’s a Godzilla caricature painted on the bomb, but rotate it 90 degrees and it looks like one of the octopus-creatures from Monsters. The director’s also clearly a fan of South Park, noting that “even Rocky had a montage,” and he spells out something that last year’s Comic-Con “Godzilla Encounter” hinted at – the Toho films exist within this cinematic universe, and were attempts to explain something that people actually saw.
See what else you can read between the lines as he freeze-frames and reveals a bit more.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
