There was supposive talk about it. Director claimed that he liked the idea of having it involve another point of view of another person surviving the chaos of the attack, citing the bridge scene where you see another person aiming a video camera in the direction of the main characters while they're filming the crossing.I thought they were going to do another film with different perspectives and filmed like a real movie. I think they should have released 2 versions the camcorder one and regular for people who get motion sickness
I should probably watch the first one again. I didn't think much of the handycam POV style of filming but I don't remember totally hating it. Just the guy actually taking the video. But he's been in quite a few movies since then and he's sort of grown on me. So I might be able to tolerate him more now.I really liked the first movie, and that trailer has me intrigued.
I really enjoyed the kaiju and I liked how you really didn't get a full view of it until toward the end.The genre seems to be more horror/suspense than kaiju though, hopefully they throw in a wild massive action sequence towards the end
I also love how Bad Robot went completely underground with this production and surprised everyone by taking the covers off less than 3 months prior to release
