Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have released a new poster for director Gareth Edwards’ upcoming monster redo Godzilla. Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Olsen, the film “pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s arrogance, threaten our very existence.” Thus far the marketing materials have (wisely) only focused on the titular monster, but it’ll be interesting to get a look at these other “malevolent creatures” when the film hit theaters. For now, though, this poster does a fine job of conveying the enormous scale of Godzilla as well as the immense amount of destructing left in his wake.
Hit the jump to take a look at the poster. The film also stars Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, and David Strathairn. Godzilla 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.
