Get a closer look at Godzilla in new magazine cover!
Yesterday, we got to see the new trailer for Gareth Edward's GODZILLA, the latest incarnation of the famed Toho Kaiju, and today Empire Magazine has revealed their latest cover with the giant lizard, which gives us another great look at the beast. So far, GODZILLA's new image has been closely guarded, but this serves as one of the most revealing images we've seen to date. Thankfully, it appears that they've nailed down the perfect blend of old school man-in-suit with a more realistic update that is a far cry from what was envisioned for Roland Emmerich's 1998 disaster.
Have a look:
I think it's safe to say that GODZILLA is at the top of most moviegoers summer viewing list at this point and I'm very curious to see how it compares to last summer's PACIFIC RIM, which was another big summer monster movie that didn't fare so well (based on budget and expectations, anyway). Will GODZILLA's reputation make him a more viable box-office champion or is it still up in the air whether or not audiences are ready for more monster mayhem? We'll certainly find out, but my money is on the electricity-spewing Gojira to make a big splash.
GODZILLA hits theater on May 16, 2014.
