SDCC12: It’s Official! Legendary’s ‘Godzilla’ is On

- 07-14-12Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Hope you guys like giant monster movies, because coming hot on the heels of the Pacific Rim panel at Comic Con was the official announcement that Legendary Pictures’ relaunch of Godzilla, directed by Monsters filmmaker Gareth Edwards, is in the pipeline and getting ready to invade theaters in the not-too-distant future.

Once the Pacific Rim panel ended in Hall H, the lights dimmed and the screen came alive with a teaser trailer for Godzilla. Here’s how Cinema Blend describes the teaser:

It started with footage of a destroyed city, and voiceover talking about the Hindu proverb about Vishnu taking on his multi-armed form (you know, this guy). The voiceover specifically quotes Vishnu saying “‘Now I have beccome death, the destroyer of worlds.” From there we hear the iconic Godzilla scream, and it leads to a shot of Godzilla stomping through a cloud of dust. You see the spiked back, you hear the familiar thudding storms, and then the camera pans up the monster’s face– where, of course, it screams again.

After the teaser was over, Edwards came out to greet the crowd, who was, by this point, roaring themselves. After admitting that he nearly cried about fan reaction to the teaser while backstage, Edwards talked about his vision for Godzilla, which, if it were to be summed up in one word, would be “realistic.” Edwards said that he and the other artists involved are taking the Godzilla idea “very seriously,” by asking themselves “If this really happened, what would it be like?”

Well I don’t know about you Bastards, but I’m kind of dying to see this now myself. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for an online leak sooner rather than later.
