<font color=red>UPDATE: </font>SDCC '12: First Look At GODZILLA & Description Of Footage

In Hall H at the Warner Bros. panel Comic Con attendees were given a special treat. They were shown a teaser trailer for the new Godzilla movie. Click the jump to read the description.

"There's nothing scifi about this movie. It's very grounded, very realistic." - Gareth Edwards

Shocktillyoudrop.com and Firstshowing.net are live blogging from Hall H and they have descriptions for the new Godzilla footage. What's important is that director Gareth Edwards stressed that the film would be take itself quite seriously. It was also implied that the teaser won't be put online for quite some time. Bummer!

Silas Lesnick: The footage pans across a city that has been utterly destroyed. We hear a voice over a radio talking about the end of the world. It looks like another giant creature's body is in the wreckage. We hear the classic Godzilla scream. From the smoke, we see something enormous. We're following a camera up Godzilla's back, showing his scales. We see his face, but it's almost a silhouette. It looks a LOT like the classic Godzilla design but with a slightly fatter face.

The narration is from Robert Oppenheimer. "We knew the world would not be the same. Few people laughed. Few people cried. Most were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture. The Bhagavad-Git... takes on his multi-armed form" (This is were we see the other, dead creature)

"And says, 'I am become death. Destroyer of worlds." That's where we see Godzilla's face and the logo

That's the narration in the trailer. It's a Robert Oppenheimer quote about the atomic bomb.


Firstshowing.net Description:
3:10PM - "We just wanted to make a kick ass Godzilla movie..." They unveiled a surprise Godzilla teaser and it looks kind of awesome. Epicly destroyed city, buildings smashed through, shows a curled up Godzilla, and he gets and roars. Crowd goes wild. I'm actually impressed, looks kick ass. "The destroyer of worlds."

3:13PM - "We could talk about it or just see the footage again..." Of course, the crowd cheers and they show it again. Looks just as amazing a second time, gives me chills, looks fantastic and it's barely just a tease with silhouettes of the beasts and a roar.


We see huge black clouds, massive smoke, and slowly it clears away revealing a ruined city. There are hundreds of crashed cars and rubble — buildings are broken in half and people are crawling over the sideways ruins of buildings. Some buildings have had massive chunks torn out of the middle of them, like when a cartoon character runs through a wall.

We see the side of something huge, like a mountain. We only slowly realize it's actually a monster. There is something like lava running down the side of it. And then there are huge CLAWS. The monnster is laying on its side. There is a huge Godzilla scream! Like a massive trumpet sounding!

And then Godzilla is rampaging through the city, trashing buildings with its huge claw. Buildings collapse. THOOM. A giant arm swipes across the city and everything crashes. We see its massive spiky back and then the trademark face. The monster opens its mouth and SCREAMS. - io9.com

The film will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters) based on a script by David Goyer that Max Borenstein has rewritten.

maxxgone - 7/14/2012, 3:56 PM
does anybody know why they just don't go ahead and post these comic-con teaser trailers online? seems kinda game-playing dick-ish to say, "well you guys were able to come so [frick] everyone else."
DZ123 - 7/14/2012, 3:56 PM
Um, mentioning Robert Oppenheimer is truly missing the point of Godzilla.
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/14/2012, 3:57 PM

Hope it ends up fighting with other monstrous creature.

I liked the iquana design...
ronnie42 - 7/14/2012, 4:00 PM
Hopefully not as bad as the japanese godzilla's since they were pretty bad. Always love the american godzilla even if it was a bit tame. Not sure if a 'fat' godzilla is a good idea. I'm not sure about the iconic godzilla but only if it fits right.
Bigred20 - 7/14/2012, 4:03 PM
Who's going to be in this movie?!
kookevin3 - 7/14/2012, 4:06 PM
Wont be online for a while?!?! [frick].

I need a bootleg plz
EarOne - 7/14/2012, 4:08 PM
i think Wrath of the Titans' Kronos should give us some idea of the enormity and awesomeness this new godzilla COULD look like.
Jables - 7/14/2012, 4:09 PM
Hope they release the teaser online soon
dahamma - 7/14/2012, 4:16 PM
man i wishwe could see footage ima huge godzilla fan
SuperSpidey - 7/14/2012, 4:21 PM
Though oppenheimer was instrumental as one of the creators of the atomic bomb, his quote is him basically saying "what have i done, what horror have we unleashed"...sounds perfect for a godzilla film to me.
SmokedTheBoss - 7/14/2012, 4:21 PM
I loved the look of the last one not the movie, kinda sucked, but the look.
kookevin3 - 7/14/2012, 4:43 PM
Please fight King Ghidorah!
Duratok - 7/14/2012, 4:51 PM
@starscream9289, please have my babies. I'm so glad to see a pic!
ISleepNow - 7/14/2012, 5:26 PM
@Ha1frican I'm sure you must've enjoyed his appearance in 'Final Wars'
Darkhaven - 7/14/2012, 5:49 PM
I love Godzilla, and I can't wait to see more on this, but...

"There's nothing scifi about this movie. It's very grounded, very realistic."

This line is stupid. I am officially sick and tired of hearing and reading this [frick]ing line about upcoming films. There is little in the way of 'grounding' in regards to a gigantic lizard that spits atomic energy and fights other monsters. The only realism involved MAY come from the average person's reactions upon seeing said gigantic atomic lizard. Give me a revamped 'Destroy all Monsters' with today's tech and get the hell out of the way!
DEADP0000L - 7/14/2012, 6:10 PM
oh shit its Godzilla !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AnonymousGuy - 7/14/2012, 6:25 PM
like that there's the oppenheimer quote. means the filmmakers really know what they're doing and did their homework. part of what made godzilla so scary to the japanese when he debuted was that hiroshima and nagasaki were still really fresh in their minds.
ATrueHero1987 - 7/14/2012, 6:56 PM
How the [frick] can you make a film about a mutated dinosaur "grounded" & "realistic"??smh Anyway, YES to a new film about the King of The Monsters!!
antonio - 7/14/2012, 6:59 PM
So excited!!!!
Bodwulf - 7/14/2012, 7:37 PM
Bodwulf - 7/14/2012, 7:47 PM
It may be even more epic than my 4th of July Godzilla vs the military display! Well, O.K. not that epic but, epic none the less! :)

Mrcool210 - 7/14/2012, 8:39 PM
really? realistic godzilla? -_- NOT EVERY [frick]ING THING IN THE WORLD HAS TO BE REALISTIC
Mrcool210 - 7/14/2012, 8:42 PM
marshma2088 - 7/14/2012, 8:44 PM
This con is probably the best one so far but we'll see next year
KeithM - 7/14/2012, 9:14 PM
By making it realistically of course. Some of you have no imagination.

beane2099 - 7/14/2012, 9:21 PM
How is using Oppenheimer "missing the point of Godzilla?" It actually hits the nail on the damn head.
DZ123 - 7/14/2012, 9:46 PM
beane: He created the bomb for what he deemed to be a necessary instrument of war. Godzilla's theme has always been about the cessation of war. Not to mention the whole unease of dependance on nuclear energy in society. By incorporating Oppenheimer, it's downplaying the Japanese perspective on the bomb.
Brady1138 - 7/14/2012, 9:55 PM
I want to be in San Diego SOOOOOO bad!
Brady1138 - 7/14/2012, 9:57 PM
Also since they referenced the man with multiple "arms" while showing the dead monster, I'm betting it might be King Ghidorah.
