The footage screened of Godzilla was freakin' insane! It has such an epic scope. Even though it has giant monsters like Pacific Rim, the footage screened had a completely different feel and tone. It has much more of a real world setting. They showed one of the giant creatures that Godzilla will be fighting, but they didn't reveal what the Godzilla in this film will actually look like. Here's a description of the footage we saw:
It starts out with several shots showing a flooded area, a dark street, and Bryan Cranston wearing gas mask. There's an intense feeling in the footage, and they are preparing for something big. We see several other scientists in hazmat suits, paratroopers jumping out of a plane, and a military refugee camp. We then see two military helicopters flying into action in the night sky, firing their machine guns. As the shot goes on we see a huge four-legged monster causing destruction. It's hard to describe, but it was pretty cool! The footage then cuts to an airport where we see a plane exploding, and it causes a domino effect of several other planes exploding in line one by one. As the monster approaches in the background Godzilla's massive foot lands in view and the crowd goes wild! The creature prepares to fight the giant beast and goes into attack mode. Godzilla is clearly much much larger than the creature and we get a tease of how massive it is, but we still don't see its face. We hear the classic epic roar and it cuts to the Godzilla logo.
It was so awesome! I'm very excited about seeing more! While we wait for the first footage of the film to be released online check out the Comic-Con panel below featuring director Gareth Edwards, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston.
The movie comes out on May 16th, 2014!
