Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures surprised the Comic-Con crowd on Saturday with a teaser of ”Godzilla.” The iconic bigscreen monster is finally making a move to theaters after spending years in development.

It was the first time that Legendary showed the test footage of the film, which set the Hall H attendees into a frenzy, generating a rousing reaction from the 6,000 fans that filled Hall H.

The footage was screened twice.
