Last March, Legendary Pictures announced that they had acquired the rights to Toho Studio’s iconic character Godzilla with the eye towards making a new American version of the classic giant monster tale. Yesterday, Legendary unveiled some promotional art for the proposed film at San Diego Comic Con. The image is one that appears on t-shirts that Legendary was handing out at their panel. (Click on it for a much bigger view.)
What’s most reassuring is thatthe image demonstrates that they have learned the lessons from the previous attempt to Americanize the character and have not strayed from his original design. I like the destruction that we see the big-G causing and the hint of atomic breath brewing inside. People who got the t-shirts were invited to stop by the Legendary booth on the main convention floor where a web camera would film them with superimposed atomic breath shooting out of Godzilla’s mouth.
Unfortunately, there is still no news as to any creative talent that may be attached to the film.
