Ok, so for those of you lucky enough to attend this year’s SDCC (San Diego Comic Con), you may have braved your way through the Godzilla (which I always pronounce GO-JEE-RA!) Encounter Experience. If so, not only were you treated to a city block of mayhem and carnage along with your Godzilla awesome-fix, but reports surfaced of an elevator visitors were rushed into. They were then taken to a room with monitors that looked EXACTLY like windows, with blinds and everything, and treated to a rumbling room and power outages as Godzilla lumbered by some high-rise building. Just when you thought you were safe, suddenly the big atomic beast reared it’s horrific head and stared right at you! There was, for a short time, a leaked spy-cam bit of footage of the entire thing. After watching it, I (less than) tirelessly searched in vein to find it again to show you, my gentle, depraved readers. What I did find, however, was a still image (of negligible quality) showing a first glimpse at the big guy’s face. Check check check it out!
I know, not the best imagery in the world, but it’s one step closer to what I can only imagine will be an amazing film. Granted, it only has to live up to the originals (originals, I might add, that spew atomic fire farts all over the 90’s remake of a giant iguana), but I have a feeling that this is going to be one amazing disaster pic. Legendary Pictures put together an amazing Godzilla Encounter walk-through that gave fans one hell of a tease of what’s to come in Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, opening May 14th, 2014. Though guides strictly said that this would not be the finished look, I’m fairly certain we’re damn close at this point. I can’t wait.
