San Diego Comic-Con 2012: A Glimpse of the New Godzilla! See it NOW!
While absolutely no one was sneaky enough to nab the whole trailer, one fan was able to snap a picture of the Godzilla reveal from the trailer shown at the San Diego Comic-Con. Read on for the trailer description along with a video of the panel.
A city decimated. Completely destroyed. The camera pans by the wreckage of a train, A distant voice is heard giving a speech about the dangers of atomic weapons from J. Robert Oppenheimer. Dust everywhere. Cars crushed. Holes in skyscrapers.
We then see a giant centipede-like creature with many arms and legs smoldering. (You know what that means? Monster battles!) The city appears dead as a doornail. Then blackness. THE ROAR. As in THE roar. Huge bass drop. Raymond Burr finishes his famous speech. Dust...then an arm... a hand... with claws. Pan up... holy shit... the fins. The head. Godzilla. As we know him. The real fucking Godzilla. He roars again.
Fade to GODZILLA! With red Japanese title behind it.
"I wanted to do Godzilla as if this really happened. How people would really deal with this kind of disaster," says director Gareth Edwards. Bless his heart!
