We’re just a day away from early screenings of Godzilla, but in case you can’t wait that long, Warner Bros. has released a pair of new Godzilla images that reveal the titular monster in full.  I liked the film a lot, and director Gareth Edwards does an excellent job of teasing out the Godzilla reveal through a slow build to the thrilling climactic finish.  It’s essentially a masterpiece of foreplay, and it’s a refreshing reprieve from the current trend of bludgeoning the audience’s eyeballs with CG-overload for two hours.  If you want to go in as cold as possible, I might suggest steering clear of these images until after you’ve seen the movie.  But if you really want to get a look at the full creature design, help yourself.  We’ve also included a new featurette that offers a behind-the-scenes look at composer Alexandre Desplat’s fantastic score.

Hit the jump to check out the Godzilla images and featurette, and be sure to read our interviews with Edwards and producer/Legendary CEO Thomas Tull.  The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn, Juliette Binoche, and Bryan CranstonGodzilla opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 16th.

Watch the Alexandre Desplat featurette below, followed by the images.

        I think anything that comes out and restores that sense of wonderment and excitement that makes us all nerds is something very special. The too-cool-for-school mentality is what should be admonished. It’s okay to have a pulse, to be excited about something.

    Ah. NOW I can see why the Japanese are saying he looks all fat.

    • Faptain America

      Maybe they can just think of him as a sumo wrestler. There you go Japan, fixed it for you.

  • DEADP00L

    Be still my beating heart!!! He is the Godzilla I dreamed for as a kid!

    Fat?

    THIS is GODZILLAAAAAAAA!

  • MJ

    The reason America-Godzilla is a bit heavier that Japan-Godzilla, is because like most Japanese, Japan-Godzilla smokes 2 packs of cigarettes per day.

  • MITIOR

    maybe he is pregnant?

  • 2Cents

    If you thought steroids got you jacked try nuclear drugs instead! I bet once he sheds his water weight he’ll look pretty ripped.

  • Strong Enough

    he looks like an angry grandpa in the headline pic

    I don’t know what it is, but ever since more pictures started/footage of Godzilla himself, I’m not as psyhced about this movie as I previously was. He looks kinda fake….and pear shaped.

    I was fortunate enough to catch the premier. Unfortunately though, it didn’t live up to the hype…all you’ll be doing is subconsciously comparing it to pacific rim.

  • The Flobbit

    It looks a bit fake, poorly textured, and strangely bottom heavy. The trailers showed the movie will be fantastic, but the CGI really ain’t that special. Hopefully with Andy Serkis’s involvement on the movement and personality of the beast, it will still be a scary, threatening creation.

    I do like how this Godzilla kind of looks like a guy in a monster suit like in the old Japanese movies.
