    It seems like Legendary is very serious about making this iteration of Godzilla faithful to the original. Hell, he might as well be the original.

    Holy shit he's enormous. He's going to put the kaiju from Pacific Rim to shame. (As he should, of course. He's Godzilla.)

    VARIETY:

    ‘Godzilla’ Shows Off Some Tail in New Poster
    New teaser poster reveals new Godzilla one body part at a time

    They’re just choosing to show him off one body part at a time.

    A new teaser poster, released during this week’s Comic-Con, reveals the scaly tail of Godzilla in the film with military helicopters hovering around it.

    While Sony’s campaign for Emmerich’s film was heralded for its hype, it too relied on massive body parts to build buzz.

    Legendary is making a big push for “Godzilla” at Comic-Con, in San Diego, promoting the film during a presentation on Saturday, during which it will reveal new footage. It also is producing the “Godzilla Encounter” — designed as part museum and theme park attraction — outside the San Diego Convention Center.

    Legendary and WB’s “Godzilla” is set to bow May 16, 2014, directed by Gareth Edwards. The film stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen.
    ‘Godzilla Encounter’ Teases Return of Japanese Icon on Big Screen
    Part museum and theme park attraction, Legendary event reveals more faithful design of Godzilla for its film, out in May
    Quote Originally Posted by Marc Graser

    Legendary opens the attraction today, in a building on the corner of 7th Avenue and J Street, in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, that walks guests through a highly detailed mock up of a Tokyo street, complete with a ramen bar, as the exhibit looks back at the iconic Japanese character’s 60-year history — from the first costume to various toys, comicbooks, art, apparel and movies.

    Alarm bells then go off and the military hurries guests through various other themed rooms, including a scientific facility and elevator, to get them out of danger from a rampaging Godzilla, which has emerged from the sea and is stomping through San Diego (according to news reports playing on screens).

    Final room finds visitors inside and office building where they come face to face with Godzilla stomping through the city during a rain storm as he stops to peer into the windows of the room.

    Sequence shown does not appear in the final film, out May 16, 2014, according to Legendary and “Godzilla Encounter” designers Five33. The look of Godzilla will also change somewhat, but it’s close to the final version, which differs greatly from Roland Emmerich’s beast in 1998 and more closely resembles the Japanese original, designed by Eli Tsuburaya. It’s a more faithful design that hardcore Godzilla fans will approve.

    With its “Godzilla Encounter,” Five33 cleverly sets the stage for what Legendary is hoping to get in theaters with its “Godzilla” next year. The space at Comic-Con clearly respects the history of the character and lovingly offers Godzilla fans a look at his role in pop culture in a well-designed museum setting that quickly turns into a theme park attraction, albeit brief one.

    Notable items on display: The first suit used in the “Godzilla” movies; the rarest Godzilla toy figure; a street artist mural of Godzilla-designer Eiji Tsuburaya (see below); the original Oxygen Destroyer prop from the 1954 film; Shindo’s Ramen Bar, a nod to 1991′s “Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, with menus listing food items named after the monsters in the “Godzilla” films; and Godzilla-shaped origami in a bowl at the bar.

    If there’s any downside to what’s been developed, it’s that visitors will want to spend more time examining the smallest of details and references or looking at the rare toys and collectibles on display.
    ‘Godzilla’ Ready to Roar at Comic-Con as Legendary Promotes Its Next Creature Feature
    With 'Pacific Rim,' 'Godzilla,' 'Seventh Son' and '300: Rise of an Empire,' Legendary's Thomas Tull has become Hollywood's beast master
    Quote Originally Posted by Marc Graser

    It’s been 15 years since Roland Emmerich’s “Godzilla” disappointed critics and moviegoers, but ultimately Sony, when the $130 million-budgeted movie earned just $379 million worldwide.

    Legendary Entertainment-chief Thomas Tull wants to make sure that doesn’t happen again when he brings the atomic fire-breathing lizard back into megaplexes in 3D on May 16, 2014, essentially kicking off the summer season.

    Instead of hiding the title character from fans until release, as Sony chose to do, Tull is taking a different approach this time around.

    At last summer’s Comic-Con, Tull screened a roughly one-minute reel of test footage for the epic that British helmer Gareth Edwards is directing, for 6,500 people packed inside the San Diego Convention Center. The sequence instantly established a devastating tone and more realistic approach to the “Godzilla” tale than Emmerich’s film.

    “I’m just going to take it really seriously,” Edwards told the crowd. “There’s nothing sci-fi about this movie, it’s very grounded, realistic,” adding that he’s wanted to see the movie this way “all my life, really. If this really happened, what would it be like?”

    This year, Tull and his marketing team, led by newly acquired agency Five33, are returning to Comic-Con and are set to lift the curtain on the birth of its new beast. By hosting an event on Tuesday night, which has been promoted through the website GodzillaEncounter.com, Legendary is guaranteed to command much of Comic-Con’s attention and rev up the hype meter for the film since the fanboy fest doesn’t officially begin until Thursday.

    Legendary and WB released a “Godzilla” poster from Mondo on Monday, while Edwards posted a video to Godzilla fans online on Sunday, promoting Tuesday’s reveal.

    What Legendary will show off in San Diego is being kept tightly under wraps. But what Tull already has proven to the fanboy community is that he doesn’t do anything small.

    Last year’s Legendary panel at Comic-Con surprised audiences when Tull lowered two additional massive screens inside Hall H to promote Guillermo del Toro’s robots vs. monsters mash-up “Pacific Rim,” now playing.

    With “Pacific Rim” out in theaters, and an upcoming slate that includes the fantasy pics “Seventh Son,” “300: Rise of an Empire” and “Godzilla,” Tull has quickly become Hollywood’s beast master. All feature massive computer-generated monsters that appeal to Tull’s core fanbase of fanboys.

    “There isn’t a monster movie we don’t like at Legendary,” Tull recently joked during a gathering of press in June.

    By going to Comic-Con with “Godzilla” this week, Tull is turning to a community he’s comfortable with. And it’s a big one, with 130,000 people to again flood downtown San Diego through July 21. Tull needs their praise to start spreading the love for a character that may be celebrated in countries like Japan, but has never been a major player in Hollywood.

    “Godzilla” will compete for attention with Fox’s “The Wolverine” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes;” Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ and “RoboCop;” WB’s “300: Rise of an Empire” and “Seventh Son,” both co-productions with Legendary; Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Thor: The Dark World;” Universal’s “Riddick;” Summit’s “Divergent” and “Ender’s Game;” and Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and Focus’ “The World’s End,” among others.

    What will help rally fans around “Godzilla,” is that Tull already has the support of “Godzilla”-owners Toho Co., although producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee, who claim were instrumental in securing the rights from the Japanese company, are now suing Legendary for being dismissed from the project.

    “Godzilla is a signature Japanese character which we have nurtured over the years,” said Hideyuki Takai, president of Toho Co., when initially announcing the film in 2010. “We are delighted in rebooting the character together to realize its much-anticipated return by fans from all over the world. We are anxious to find out where Godzilla’s new stomping will take us.”

    Legendary clearly has a franchise in mind with “Godzilla;” Warner Bros., which will distribute the film, also has its consumer products division brokering licensing deals for everything from apparel to toys. Legendary is covering 75% of the budget of the film — expected to cost around $160 million — the way it paid for much of “Pacific Rim’s” $185 million pricetag.

    The lack of hype around Sony’s “Godzilla” wasn’t the problem that hurt that film. Its “Size Does Matter” marketing campaign was one of the more innovative efforts to come out of Hollywood in years, with Godzilla’s body parts shown off in billboards with the words, “His foot is bigger than this bus” and “His eye is bigger than this billboard,” for example.

    But the movie still has to be good.

    In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dean Devlin, who produced Emmerich’s “Godzilla,” admitted that “I screwed up my Godzilla. I’d be very happy if (Legendary) pull it off and do a great one.”

    In tapping Edwards as director, Tull has enlisted a filmmaker who previously directed the low-budget “Monsters,” a $500,000-budgeted pic that went on to earn $4.2 million globally. Frank Darabont, Max Borenstein (“Seventh Son”) and Dave Callaham (“The Expendables”) wrote the script, and the cast features a list of respectable thesps like Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche and David Strathairn but not a single movie star.

    Either way, Tull is making sure he gives audiences what they want to see in a “Godzilla” movie: a lot of destruction and multiple monsters doing battle.

    “I’ve loved Godzilla since I was a kid, and frankly we just wanted to see a kick ass Godzilla movie,” Tull told the Comic-Con contingent last year. “Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has.”

    Legendary initially planned for its “Godzilla” to stomp into theaters in 2012 (after announcing plans for the project in 2010). But by spending more time developing the film, it will come out just as Legendary is leaving its home at Warner Bros., after eight years, for Universal.

    With films like “Godzilla,” Tull wants to take more control — and ownership — of the films Legendary makes. If “Godzilla” succeeds, it will be tough not to associate the giant beast with Tull’s plans to take over the entertainment biz with tentpole films, TV shows, comic books and toys.

    With Warner Bros. giving Tull access to the Batman, Superman and “The Hangover” franchises, and helping establish relationships between him and directors Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder over the years, the studio essentially helped create Hollywood’s newest monster.

    And with “Godzilla,” the industry will now get to hear just how loudly Tull can roar.

    Godzilla trailer shown at Comic-con...http://www.slashfilm.com/godzilla-tr...omic-con-2013/

    Last year at Comoc Con, Legendary Entertainment surprised the crowd with a very early teaser trailer for Gareth EdwardsGodzilla. 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.


    • Godzilla finished the last day of shooting two days ago, with a night shoot in Hawaii.
    • Edwards touted the creative freedom the producers and studio gave him was incredible.
    • Elizabeth Olsen was surprised that it didn’t feel like making a huge budget film and that she wasn’t waiting around the set for hours in between setups.
    • Olsen plays a Nurse and a mother in the film. Based on the trailer, she seems to be a refugee of sorts, as we see her as she reunites with a young girl in a sports stadium that has been converted into a shelter.
    • Bryan Cranston wasn’t sure if this would be a good project for him to do because it was “too huge.” He wasn’t sure that stepping into those shoes was a good idea, but after watch Edwards’ Monsters and talking to the filmmaker, he became convinced.
    • It was important to Edwards that the characters they followed in the movie were at the center of the Godzilla story, he didn’t want it to be two separate story lines.
    • The code name for the film was “Nautilus”.
    • Edwards approached this film as his passion project and not a blockbuster.

    In addition to the test footage teaser they showed last year at Comic-Con, Edwards brought a new teaser trailer to Comic Con. I’m not sure when, or if, this trailer will be online, but Russ Fischer has compiled a description below:

    We’re introduced to characters first off: Cranston seems to be an engineer/investigator of some sort — we see him in hazmat gear, and later running towards a crisis event in a government installation as the rest of the staff frantically runs away. Aaron Taylor Johnson is a soldier; Ken Watanabe is seen in a control room of some kind, and Olsen as mentioned above is shown in moments that suggest she’s been a victim of some disaster. A montage of various images shows a world in crisis and deploying military forces to fight some crisis moment.
    And then there’s the kaiju attack. The first monster we see is a spindly-legged insectoid thing — is this Mothra? Didn’t quite look like it, but that’s possible. The monster is attacking an airport, and there’s a great wide shot that sees the kaiju destroying a plane, which leads to an explosion the camera follows by panning across a huge set of windows, looking out from inside the airport terminal. Part of the plane’s destroyed fuselage flies right to left across the screen, and is eventually stopped as it crashes into a giant foot.


    That’s the intro for Godzilla, and the creature dwarfs the other kaiju. Few shots really show Godzilla, but the scale is very effectively communicated by the relationship between the insectoid monster and our favorite lizard. The overall effect could be described — and this isn’t a literal account of the footage, but an impression of its effect — like a slow pan up from the faces of the various human characters stuck in the middle of a monster-created mess, passing a smaller beast and finally trying to focus on the father of it all, Godzilla, hidden in fire and smoke.

    Yeah, that was very quick. I happened to watch it just in time before they pulled it. What I can tell you is that it seems to be just like the one that was shown at SDCC last year, with the J. Robert Oppenheimer narration.

    Well, at least I downloaded it to my computer, so I'll just upload it on YouTube again and rename it something else so WB won't find it so fast.

    OK. So here it is, but it's only 360p. I don't know what YouTube did during the upload cause the original was in 720p.
