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.
