Godzilla: Final Preview

Posted by The Daily Zombies Friday, May 16, 2014

Finally, the King of Kaiju returns to the big screen today courtesy of Legendary Pictures and British film-maker Gareth Edwards. The Daily Zombies takes a final look at the much-anticipated film that have captured our attentions since its original announcement. 

As a sub-genre of sci-fi entertainment created and exclusively contributed by the Japan entertainment industry, Kaiju, literally translated as "strange creature", has been a strange creature in every sense of the word. From its humble origins as a lowbrow tokusatsu entertainment (live-action monster suit-wearing TV entertainment), Godzilla, undoubtedly the most recognized Kaiju created, has went on to unprecedented heights from iconic pop culture figure to a symbol of nuclear warfare.

True to its iconic status, the most recent take on the King of Kaiju by Legendary Pictures and British film-maker Gareth Edwards seek to strip the storied figure to its most essence in a dramatic sci-fi film with a sense of moving realism. Since our First Look at the film during last year's Comic-Con, we have been intrigued by the film's somewhat unusual marketing campaign that practice a much-missed restraint in ensuring that the audience is enticed enough while not giving away too much of the fun. 

With the film set to open today, we take one last look at the film with its most recent promotional clips, posters, and images. 

First up, hit the jump for the featurette with an interesting behind-the-scenes look at composer Alexandre Desplat’s score.

And here's an awesome twelve-minute featurette.

The posters released for the film have been unexpectedly well-done and we are quite certain that these will be sneaking into the top movie poster list by the end of the year. Here are some of the recently-released posters.

The marketing campaign thus far has cleverly obscured the look of Godzilla in the trailer. But for those who just can't wait any further to have a good look (the best we ever have incidentally), here are two recently-released images presenting Godzilla in full glorious high resolution.

And here are some of the official images released thus far.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

In Summer 2014, the world’s most revered monster is reborn as Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures unleash the epic action adventure “Godzilla.” From visionary new director Gareth Edwards (“Monsters”) comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless.

Gareth Edwards directs “Godzilla,” which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” “Inception”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Cosmopolis”), and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck.,” “The Bourne Legacy”) and Bryan Cranston (“Argo,” TV’s “Breaking Bad”).

Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, and Richard T. Jones, Godzilla is currently available in fine theaters everywhere.
