Toho Co., Ltd.’s Godzilla franchise contains one of the most widely recognized movie monsters worldwide, including more than 25 films, multiple television programs, video games and book series. Legendary, which has been developing the project, and its partner Warner Bros. will return the character to its epic roots with a gritty, realistic actioner. The project will fall under Legendary’s overall agreement with Warner Bros.

The film is directed by Gareth Edwards, who earned worldwide acclaim for his feature directorial debut, “Monsters.” Edwards directs from a screenplay by David Callaham (“The Expendables” films), David S. Goyer (the “Dark Knight” trilogy) and Max Borenstein (upcoming “The Seventh Son”). Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce, along with Roy Lee, Dan Lin and Brian Rogers. Alex Garcia and Patricia Whitcher will serve as executive producers alongside Doug Davison, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.


Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston, Godzilla is set to hit theaters on May 16, 2014.

@Godzillafart What's surprising to me is the fact that they were able to make him look like the classic and make him look newer and cooler at the same time.

@Deadpoolwithcomicsans, comment of the week.
AsianVersionOfET - 7/22/2013, 12:44 PM
I wasn't very excited for this, and I'm still a little skeptical, but that video was just pure awesomeness. Brought back so much nostalgia of when I was a wee lad watching all the Godzilla movies, I was obsessed. I had a costume and everythin'.
WinterAvenger - 7/22/2013, 12:46 PM
It like my childhood has been relived this makes me be scared of it I can't wait!
Danbojohnj - 7/22/2013, 12:46 PM

billnye69 - 7/22/2013, 12:46 PM

AsianVersionOfET - 7/22/2013, 12:47 PM
@Gusto, I'm sure that's just one of those newly designed Febreeze air freshners....

@Deadpoolwithcomicsans

Gamera623 - 7/22/2013, 12:50 PM
Everyone is excited because Godzilla looks like Godzilla!

So awesome. I cannot wait for this movie. After Pacific Rim I dont know how Godzilla can top it, but Im going to love to see it try! :)
Ocelot - 7/22/2013, 12:51 PM
He looks great, The King has returned, The King has returned!.

The Godzilla encounter would make for a good theme park ride.

AWESOME footage really cool just 2 gripes about this though

1.i thought he was gonna be bigger than that i mean the concept art made it look like he was going to be skyscraper huge
2.the fins on his back look cool but theyre not big enough they look kinda small IMO which might not look great with his appearance.
but overall still awesomme footage
thewonderer - 7/22/2013, 12:54 PM
TODAY WE FACE GODZILLA WHO IS AT OUR DOOR. TODAY WE ARE CANCELLING THE APOCALYPSE!

AsianVersionOfET - 7/22/2013, 12:55 PM
I emphasized the word ass because he has a great ass, and not a single one of y'all can deny that!
Marvel1997 - 7/22/2013, 12:56 PM
