Warner Bros. Pictures has announced that Godzilla will stomp into theaters May 16, 2014.
Gareth Edwards (Monsters) is getting behind the camera for the Legendary Pictures feature that was teased at the San Diego Comic-Con this past July (read a description of the footage shown inside).
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.
Here’s a description of the footage shown at the SDCC: “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!”
