One of the biggest questions during production of Gareth Edwards‘ remake of Godzilla was the look and sound of the creature himself. Would Edwards stay true to the classic, original look of the Japanese monster or try something new? The answer, not surprisingly, is a little of both. We have yet to see a clear, full image of the beast but a special cover of the latest issue of Empire has the best look yet. In addition, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures – which will release the film on May 16 — has officially released audio of Godzilla’s mighty roar. Look and listen, below.
UPDATE: A visual version of the roar has been released, as well as a tease of the trailer, which hits 10 a.m. February 25. Read More »

Briefly: Here’s the Japanese trailer for next year’s Godzilla, from director Gareth Edwards. This is mostly the same as the trailer debuted yesterday in the US — the effects shots are all the same, for example. But Japan’s own Ken Watanabe gets a better introduction in this trailer. While the domestic trailer showed the actor in a hazmat suit, here he’s given a close-up without any protective covering.
And if you think that seeing a Godzilla trailer preceded by the Toho Studios logo is the only way to go, this is going to be the one to watch. Read More »
Monsters director Gareth Edwards is the man entrusted by Toho, Legendary, and Warner Bros. to revamp Godzilla — or more properly, to bring him back to speed as the giant nuclear monster that owns the hearts of moviegoers. Edwards said this week, ”To me, he’s like a force of nature, like the wrath of God or vengeance for the way we’ve behaved… I want it to be epic. I want to get the hairs on the back of your neck up.”
You’ve probably seen the proof of concept Godzilla trailer that debuted at Comic Con a couple years ago, as it has done the rounds as a high-quality bootleg. But here’s something much better: the full trailer, which features the cast (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston) but even better shows off the monster of the title.
The hairs on the back of your neck might just stand up when you see a squad of soldiers diving to meet the monster in what looks like a suicide mission, and that’s just the beginning. This is a teaser that really tries to tease, and that suggests it isn’t just playing a marketing game. This looks like a horror movie, which is just as it should be. Check it out below.

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.

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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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.)
