godzilla-easter-egg

Astounding Beyond Belief has found one helluva potential easter egg in the brand new Godzilla trailer.

If you were to go frame-by-frame through the monster’s destruction, what you’d see what could be are the infamous 6-inch tall Shobijan (The Mothra Twins)! For those unacquainted, the Shobijin (Japanese for “small beauties”) are two tiny priestesses or fairies that accompany Mothra, and who also speak for her. – Wiki Some say the footage around the :30 mark are just firemen, but who knows?

In addition, it was pointed out to us by BD reader ‘Avery’ and io9 that Rodan and possibly the half cyborg Gigan may have a brief appearance.

In theaters May 16, 2014, Godzilla an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. 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.

Monsters‘ Gareth Edwards directs the all star cast including Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, Yuki Morita, and C.J. Adams.

SHOBIJAN?

RODAN?

GIGAN?

    6 inch tall women? That sounds very dumb.

    • Ultrazilla

      Apparently you’ve never seen Mothra? Do yourself a favor and track down the original, and then it’s follow up, Godzilla vs Mothra. Two amazing examples of classic science fiction/fantasy.

  • ThunderDragoon

    I’m loving all this speculation. Reminds me of Cloverfield all those years ago. Good times.

  • DamienJohn

    ..how could you even begin to consider Shobijan being in this iteration of Godzilla, have you not been following the production at all?

  • Ultrazilla

    Seriously? First off, those are firemen…zoom in and you can see the uniforms. Second, kind of big to be 6″ fairies, don’t you think? Third, Godzilla is the ONLY Toho creature in this film, this has been stated by the production team several times. The MUTOS are original creatures to this film’s universe. So every time a flying monster appears it’s automatically Rodan? Any time a monster has hooked claws it’s going to be Gigan? This speculation is beyond silly!

    I agree with Ultrazilla, the monsters in this have been described in two forms at a special Comic con preview, one that looks like a spider with hooks at the end of their appendages and a flying one that kind of has moth wings. These are new MUTO monsters that are new to the movies.
