Last year at Comoc Con, Legendary Entertainment surprised the crowd with a very early teaser trailer for Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla. The test footage kicked Hall H’s ass and was one of the most talked about things of that year’s Con. Warner Bros has returned a year later with Edwards, alongside cast members Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor Johnson and Bryan Cranston to premiere a new teaser trailer, our first look at actual footage from the film. Read all about it, and find what was said on the panel, after the jump.

We’ll learn a lot about Gareth Edwards‘ new telling of Godzilla in the next couple days, beginning with a visit to the so-called Godzilla Experience set up by Warner Bros. and Legendary, later today. We might have the first full film image of Godzilla at that point, as well as a better description of the approach Edwards has taken to the movie.
For now, the Godzilla Experience app has provided a new piece of concept art that shows off what appears to be part of the giant beast, and in so doing helps give a sense of scale for the monster. Check that out below, along with a new poster.
Keep an eye open for a couple more Godzilla reports today or tomorrow and Saturday. (You can also revist the Mondo poster for the film’s Comic Con appearance, which also shows off a bit of the title beast.)

Briefly: Way back when Legendary’s new Godzilla was first announced there was talk that the giant lizard of the title wouldn’t be the only monster in the movie. And while there’s still no confirmation, more materials now say that we can expect more beasts than the title monster. A press release trumpeting the marketing opportunities for the film describes the movie:
Featuring spectacular creatures, thrilling action, epic battles and a legendary monster, Godzilla provides the backbone for a monstrous merchandise offering for fans of all ages and enables compelling cross-category opportunities across mass and specialty retailers.
Even Roland Emmerich’s Godzilla had the brood of young lizards; let’s hope this reboot has something more interesting, and that the other “creatures” will show up in more than toy and video game form. After the break, see a new promo image caught in the wild at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. Appropriately, the pic shows Vegas in flames, presumably after an attack from a huge monster. Read More »

Briefly: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe and Juliette Binoche are all going to be fighting the granddaddy of all monsters, Godzilla, for director Gareth Edwards. Now they’ll have an Oscar-nominee along for the ride. Sally Hawkins, best known for her work in Happy-Go-Lucky as well as Never Let Me Go and Submarine, has just been cast as another scientist trying to survive what’s sure to be a massive monster attack.

In the next two years, Legendary Pictures is releasing two films in which giant monsters lay waste to cities. First up is Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim, out July 12. In it, the humans have built giant robots called Jaegers to battle giant alien monsters called Kaiju. Then, in 2014, the company will release a new version of the film that brought the very concept of the kaiju to global popularity: Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla, which is now in production.
As more and more studios think about team-up films such as The Avengers and Justice League, the possibility of some kind of new monster crossover seems obvious. Especially since it would hold true to the film history of Godzilla. There are no immediate plans for anything like this, but, Guillermo Del Toro loves the idea. Read his quote below. Read More »
