‘Godzilla’ Stomps Through Smoldering San Francisco in New Poster

By February 20, 2014

We normally don’t care too much about posters around here, but every once in a while, a studio releases one that’s worth talking about. (It just so happens that Marvel released one for Guardians of the Galaxy today, too.) Such is the case with Legendary’s upcoming take on Godzilla, which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston, and more. But those actors can’t hold a candle to the real star – a towering creature that dwarfs San Francisco’s skyscrapers. Take a look at the full poster:

I love the inclusion of the skydiving soldiers from the trailer above the city. There’s something about this poster that makes it feel as if the studio hired an artist who actually put some creative thought into designing it, instead of just tossing floating heads around the screaming beast. That may well be what a future poster looks like, but in the meantime, we can bask in the coolness (or heat, considering all of that fire) of this image. Be sure to watch the trailer if you haven’t seen it yet, and mark your calendars for May 16th, 2014:

    THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING BOUT!!! Finally someone gets it. I can’t wait to see this filck. Radioactive Breath, Glowing plates on the back, mindless reptilian destruction. There goes Tokyo…… GO GO Godzilla!

    • It might be time for a Godzilla movie marathon!

    If this is half as cool as i think it’s gonna be, lead me to the box office. Maybe we get Bryan Cranston to come up with the new monster stoppping method that triples as drain cleaner, monster killer and designer drug all at once. My money is on Walt. Any takers?

    • I don’t think we could have put it better ourselves!

    What a shame Raymond Burr isn’t available. I wonder if there is a way they can overdub voices for the characters? That would be hella cool! Oxygen Destroyer anyone?

    Way Cool. Huge fan of the Big G since the heady days of the black and white films. I’m soooooo hoping they can find a way to work in some of the monster vs monster themes back in there.
