Today is primarily for When Animals Attack trailers, but I enjoy the notion of The Giant Behemoth so much–and he is a dinosaur, so technically he’s an animal–so we’re throwing it up here. Two things strike me here.
One, the monster is attacking London. This is a nice change of pace since we know that monsters normally like to attack Tokyo. But it’s basically an American and British co-production and I guess New York City won the coin toss.
Two, the titles are really terrible. It’s known as both The Giant Behemoth and Behemoth, the Sea Monster. The first title is redundant, since a “behemoth” is gigantic by definition. And the second title makes it sound like “sea monster” is the thing’s occupation. Like “Bill the Plumber.” “Behemoth the Sea Monster.” “Behemoth” could be the thing’s name, so fair enough there, but still–were they afraid audiences would fixate on the “moth” portion and expect a giant insect to go after large light sources?
Favorite part of the trailer, though, is that the dialogue in spaces sounds more like Lines Written Specifically So They’ll Be in the Trailer than anything in cinema history. Enjoy the madness!
