‘Godzilla’ Shows Off Some Tail in New Poster

'Godzilla' Shows Off Some Tail in

New teaser poster reveals new Godzilla one body part at a time

Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are slowly revealing a little bit more of their “Godzilla,” said to be a more faithful return of the giant Japanese lizard to the big screen than Roland Emmerich’s version in 1998.

They’re just choosing to show him off one body part at a time.

A new teaser poster, released during this week’s Comic-Con, reveals the scaly tail of Godzilla in the film with military helicopters hovering around it.

While Sony’s campaign for Emmerich’s film was heralded for its hype, it too relied on massive body parts to build buzz.

Legendary is making a big push for “Godzilla” at Comic-Con, in San Diego, promoting the film during a presentation on Saturday, during which it will reveal new footage. It also is producing the “Godzilla Encounter” — designed as part museum and theme park attraction — outside the San Diego Convention Center.

    What about Emmerich 1998 Godzilla? No one takes in account how bad that movie did? It was an okay film, not really a blockbuster at the Box office…That being said, who else but Emmerich could make a modern take Godzilla…again. I wonder if they will make another one in 2029 and continue a 15 year cycle of filming these remake. At least they didn’t let Michael Bay touch it!

    I think they are the main courses from two different establisments. Pacific Rim was clearly focused on total mayhem and giant robots fighting monsters. Not so much character development. I think godzilla is gonna be a happy mixture of both, grasping the roots of the original 1954 film. The “original” not the american edit.

    I’m not sure if Pacific Rim is the Hors d’oeuvre to Godzilla or if Godzilla is the dessert to Pacific Rim’s main course.
