New Images from GODZILLA Starring Aaron Taylor Johnson and Bryan Craston; Plus a Size Chart Comparing Godzilla’s Incarnations

by     Posted 295 days ago


New images have been released for Gareth EdwardsGodzilla.  Although we recently got a new trailer, plot details remain scarce beyond the eponymous monster running amok and helpless humans trying to figure out how to deal with him.  These new images don’t provide any more details, but I’m glad we’re not at a marketing overload point.  There’s just enough mystery here to keep it interesting without being gratingly coy about the whole affair.

Hit the jump to check out the images along with a size chart for how all of the various Godzillas stack up against each other.  The film stars Aaron Taylor-JohnsonBryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette BinocheSally HawkinsKen Watanabe, and David StrathairnGodzilla opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 16th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Godzilla:

An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

    The problem with the trailer was, it didn’t show a clear protagonist? I mean it kinda sorta did with Cranston but eh, not really? Is he the main focus (human wise?) was unclear and could be a huge problem for the movie if there is no focus.

    • Oliver Queen

      I would think Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s character is the protagonist, at least i hope he is but maybe i’m wrong. He has the potential to become a big lead actor with Godzilla and Avengers 2.

      • Neo Racer

        I didn’t get any of that at all from the trailer, which is confusing or misleading. I know they’re using Cranston for obvious reasons but if it turns out hes in the movie for 5 minutes people are gonna feel cheated given how much he’s in the trailer. We’ll see eh!

      • Agent777

        I pretty sure he is filling in the Doctor Yamane role from the original, which is not only a great role, but was originated by one of the greatest actors ever, Takashi Shimura. So it’s a very juicy role from Cranston.

      • ArmyofOne

        George Takei would have been a better choice to play Doctor Yamane.

    • Agent777

      Most of the originals had ensemble cast, with many different types of characters who have to work together to save the day. It’s never really worked when there has been a main human protagonist (which they tried alot in the Millenium series). I would expect big deeds from everybody.

  • RIC

    Sounds as if Godzilla is going to save the day (or at the least attempt to). I’d much rather have a pissed off creature destroying everything in sight.

    • Chad

      You mean like Godzilla 98, Cloverfield, etc? Seen it already, so the change is good.

      • Grayden

        The change is nothing new if you’ve seen all the Godzilla films, over half in which Godzilla is the “hero”. The later films where it returns to a more malevolent force of nature was a breath of fresh air and drove home the initial metaphor behind the creature’s purpose.

      • ArmyofOne

        Godzilla 1985 is when they changed him from a “hero” monster back to the “malevolent force” that he was at the start and for which he is suppose to be. Godzilla is NOT a pet to call in when there’s another attacking monster or alien race.

      @ RIC
      I agree.

    • Agent777

      Godzilla saved the day (indirectly) plenty of times in the Heisei series, while also causing massive damage and dividing the human protagonist as to whether he should be destroyed or left alone.
      I have to say, the 1954 one is the only one that was ever going to have the levity it had. It was made by Japanese people ten years after thousands of there countrymen had been killed by atom bombs, and months after a Japanese fishing ship had a its crew killed by the fallout of a U.S. nuclear test. So the feeling and emotion, the dread that films emobodies, that’s not something easily recaptured and it would be very unfair to expect that.

  • Agent777

    Glad he is only marginally taller than Heisei Godzilla. Given in the trailer Serizawa says that they “nuked” Godzilla back in 1954, that pretty much means they nuked the original 50 meter Godzilla, and the extra radiation caused him to grow to the size of the Heisei one (which happened in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah 91′). So I’m guessing this also mutated Godzilla’s parasites, and that is who.what the villain is. Pretty exciting honestly.

    Honestly, Godzilla looks really fat with a tiny head.
