The Movie Biz: Lessons from 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' and 'Dark Phoenix'

“Godzilla” (distributed by AT&T Inc.'s (NYSE: T) Warner Bros.) — You gain a new appreciation for actors who have to handle an exchange like, “So, you want to make Godzilla our pet?” “NO, we will be his.” — You get to see what some of the “Game of Thrones” cast are doing now. Like the rattling coffee cup that signals the approach of Godzilla or the Star Trek Stumble (everybody sort of throws themselves around when the ship is hit by something) — You learn things. For instance, there are 17 titans (the movie’s term for Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, etc.) stored around the world in places like Angor Wat, Skull Island and — wait for it — Stone Mountain! I kid you not.
