The legacy of the almighty Godzilla is such that most hardcore fans keep our minds occupied by the lovable picture of a giant, rubber monster with a man lurking inside. Such was the Japanese way of creating their iconic bane of Tokyo. Now, however, things are a little bit different. The 2014 reboot of the classic lizard is stepping things up a bit and turning Godzilla into something a little more realistic. Will it work out? Listen to what director Gareth Edwards has to say on the matter in the video below.
While I love the idea of taking Godzilla to the next level, I really hope that Edwards has learned the lesson of the god-awful 1998 version of the film. Realism does not always equal quality, a fact that fans of the franchise know all-to-well. Luckily, the trailers thus far don’t suggest that that will be the case this time around. Whether the film is an excellent take on Godzilla or not, however, remains to be seen.
