We’ve just now landed the first official teaser poster for Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary’s new Godzilla movie that just completed a panel in Hall H of the San Diego Comic-Con.
Watch this spot for a teaser trailer description!
A teaser trailer also premiered to a surprised and stunned crowd. Our man on the beat says that it went over better than the footage for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, about giant robots vs monsters. Here’s a description of the footage shown: “A city decimated. Completely destroyed. The camera pans by the wreckage of a train and the distant voice of J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atomic bomb) is heard reading from the Bhagavad Gita – “Now, I am become death”. Dust everywhere. Cars crushed. Holes in sky scrapers.
We then see a giant centipede like creature with many arms and legs smoldering. (You know what that means? Monster battles!) The city appears dead as a door nail. Then blackness. THE ROAR. As in THE roar. Huge Bass drop. Raymond Burr finishes his famous speech. Dust…then an arm… a hand… with claws. Pan up… holy shit… the fins. The head. Godzilla. As we know him. The real f-cking Godzilla. He roars again.
Fade to GODZILLA! With Red Japanese title behind it!”
Making his first appearance in 1954 (Gojira) Godzilla is a giant monster that lives in the sea that comes from the ocean to feed on mankind.
We exclusively broke the news on the new Godzilla movie back in 2009.
Monster director Gareth Edwards will get behind the camera for the giant lizard’s return to theaters. Legendary would also like to give fans the opportunity to meet Edwards at a surprise SDCC signing at their booth (#3920) at 530pm today. Get on it!
