After years of secrecy about the look of Legendary’s new take on Godzilla, the giant lizard’s current form has been seen round the world via marketing materials and screenings of the new film.

If anyone was safe from the horrors of fat-shaming, you’d think it’d be Godzilla. After all, he’s a massive, terrifying monster whose only real job is to be as massive and as terrifying as possible.
Nevertheless, Japanese fans are reportedly mocking Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla for being “an American fatty.” “He’s gone and supersized himself,” one snarked. Hit the jump to see what else they had to say about the poor giant.

Its that time of year again. Jeff Cannata (formerly of the Totally Rad Show, now host of NLB and DLC, and a frequent co-host of the /Filmcast) has thrown down the gauntlet, and once again challenged /Film to compete with him in what has become an annual tradition: the Summer Movie Wager. Every year in the past I would make a guest appearance on the Totally Rad Show for this segment, but with that show now disbanded we have taken on the job of hosting this contest on /Film.
This year the contest includes Germain Lussier, Jeff Cannata and myself in a game is to decide what will be the highest grossing films of the Summer. It’s a free-for-all; the person with the best score wins. But it isn’t just that easy — not only do the participants need to predict what 10 films will be the highest grossing films domestically, but we need to place them in order. After the jump you can watch the full episode of the show with our predictions.

Legendary Pictures in conjunction with Warner Bros have released a new international trailer for Godzilla. The Godzilla Japanese trailer gives us a better look at the Japanese backstory of the creature, focusing a bit more on Ken Watanabe’s character, as well as the same soft yet tense building ominous score and series of “take my money now” teasing action sequence edits we’ve come to expect from this movie’s marketing campaign. You can watch the Godzilla Japanese trailer embedded after the jump.
IMAX has released an exclusive illustrated Godzilla IMAX poster for the film. No word on if this is poster will be given out at IMAX theaters as part of the company’s awesome Fanfix initiative, or if this is just another one-sheet for the film. Either way, its pretty cool and you can see the full poster after the jump.

After the jump you can watch Russ, Germain and I talk about the footage we screened at the Warner Bros panel, which included an extended sequence from Godzilla and a short clip from Into The Storm.
