I had that Godzilla. It was one of my favorite toys.
A lil tease from Comic Con
Pretty sure he already confirmed multiple Kaiju months ago.
I has a friend as a kid that had that one too (or one like it). Always had attacking the giant GI Joe space shuttle(s).
SDCC footage as described by Quint at aicn:
Last year Gareth Edwards' “tone piece” rocked the hall... That piece showed a real world take on what it would look like if Godzilla existed in our reality. The devastation had a 9/11 quality, sombre, massive and very heavy. This wasn't silly.
Well, now they're shooting and had prepared a bit to show us that I'll do my best to describe to you from my way over-loaded geeky brain.
There was the typical sizzle reel thing of having a lot of out of context images flashing at you... Bryan Cranston in some kind of radioactive suit and looking worried, Aaron Taylor-Johnson in full soldier gear pointing his rifle at something, a soldier running down a fiery street, Ken Watanabe looking on in awe of something, a quick reunion shot in a Katrina-esque stadium refugee zone with a kid and Elizabeth Olsen, people running around in a government installation... that kind of thing. Chaos.
Then it cuts to black for a bit, just to draw out the tension, then we see our first glimpse of a monster. Notice I said “a monster” not “the monster.” We get a tall Kaiju that looks a bit like the Cloverfield monster in terms of it kind of having thin appendages and flat-ish face. It's destroying **** and we see it prominently featured at an airport. It towers over parked planes as jets and attack choppers shoot mercilessly at the beast.
One chopper gets too close and is swatted down. All that follows is shown in one shot through the large plate glass windows from inside the airport as if a POV shot of a witness... The chopper is hit and it spins as it crashes to the ground near a parked plane. Upon impact the chopper explodes which starts off a chain reaction as one plane after another gets caught up in the rolling fireball that gets bigger and bigger with each successive explosion.
The camera pans, following the destruction and as the final plane explodes, Godzilla's massive thick tree trunk of a foot comes down right in the middle of the fireball of the last exploding plane. Cut to black again as the audience cheers like mad.
Then an image fades up of the other Kaiju aggressively moving with in the smoke and wreckage of the airport, not seeing Godzilla raise up behind it. As big as the first monster looked when destroying everything you realize that it barely comes up to Godzilla's midriff as the King of Monsters stands straight up behind it. Godzilla roars and that's it.
I hope Gamera is in this! He is friend to all children!
Is Jet Jaguar going to be in this?
The Robert Oppenheimer speech is oddly appropriate.
Interesting. Most interesting.
Last shot was awesome
I like it quite a bit. Looks like Godzilla, sounds like Godzilla (though, to be honest, I did like the version of the roar used in the G98's teasers better) and I like the tone/voice over.
They should make a Godzilla vs. Superman vs. Batman movie.
That was truly awesome. THAT Godzilla ain't gonna be strapped to a bridge and killed with lil missles.
2001 soundtrack, wtf
....Is it May yet?
EDIT: I actually though that the 2001 sound track was rather appropriate and suited the visuals very well.
It always weirds me out when they reuse classic soundtracks for trailers.
I was burned before by the Roland Emmerich travesty, so I'm not gonna put this one on my radar until I read or hear multiple reviews with nothing less than "spectacular" in them.
Even 12 years later, the WTC rule is hardly ever implemented in disaster movies.
Collapsing buildings produce massive dust clouds. I like it!
Hopefully this movie will succeed where Pacific Rim failed in maintaining an appropriate sense of scale.
