It seems like we’ve been hearing about Warner Bros. and Legendary’s plans for a Godzilla reboot for ever and ever, but this week we’ll finally get to see what’s come of all that talk. The first official trailer will be released tomorrow, Tuesday, December 10, in advance of the creature feature’s summer 2014 bow.
But first, the Godzilla marketing team would like to invite you to explore the film’s world with several viral videos and a mysterious website. Check ‘em out after the jump.

Want to see the face of the new Godzilla?
It’s always the same: there’ll be a new film with a tightly-guarded character design that has been hidden from the curious public. But those character designs have to be merchandized, and so there are licensing expos where companies get to see the stuff that studios are hiding from people. And then pictures hit the internet, often well before trailer footage does.
And so we come to the latest expo, in Brazil, where a poster featuring Godzilla was photographed. This would appear to be the design of the creature for Gareth Edwards‘ new film that opens in 2014. We’ve kept it below, for those who would rather wait for a trailer.
Update: Warner Bros. lawyers have been in touch, so the image is gone.

The composer who worked on two recent Best Picture winners is taking a monstrous leap. Alexandre Desplat, the composer of scores for The King’s Speech and Argo, as well as for Moonrise Kingdom and both Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows among others, will be writing the music for next year’s big budget remake of Godzilla.

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 »
