Godzilla_Legendary_52012

Yahoo! unveiled this absolutely incredible Mondo poster for the SXSW premiere of the newly restored Gojira, the first ever Godzilla film from 1954.

Austin-based design studio Mondo commissioned an exclusive poster for the new big-screen version coming this summer. Designed by Phantom City Creative, it shows the big beastie literally rising out of the smoke of a smoldering city.

Explains the site, the design of the new “Godzilla” is directly inspired by the classic look of the creature from the 1954 original movie.

Gareth Edwards, the director of the new version, will be hosting a screening of the classic monster movie at the Ritz Alamo Theater in downtown Austin. The screening of the restored original Japanese version with 40 minutes not seen in the American edit is on Tuesday, Mar. 11 at 9:30pm, and attendees will receive a copy of the limited-edition poster.
