Though becoming something of a rarity in the digital age, Hollywood, CA is still home to a number of iconic movie theaters including The Egyptian, the El Capitan, and the TCL Chinese Theater. The most immediately recognizable, however, might just be the Cinerama Dome on Sunset Blvd. It resembles the Epcot Center at Disney World in Florida (or, more accurately, half of it).
Major studios have used the theater’s iconic architecture and prominent location to promote films in the past, but the folks at Legendary have reset the bar with an epic Godzilla: King of the Monsters display that’s truly stunning! In the video embedded at the top of the article, check out the Big G breaking through the iconic dome and blasting his atomic breath into the stratosphere!
Members of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species thought to be mere myths-rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Directed by Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus‘ Michael Dougherty, who co-wrote the film with Zach Shields, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, and Zhang Ziyi.
This film has been rated PG-13 for sequences of monster action violence and destruction, and for some language. Look for Godzilla: King of the Monsters to demolish US box offices beginning May 31st.
