Godzilla Cuts Path Of Destruction In San Diego Ahead Of Comic Con
Look out! Godzilla has come to San Diego! Well, Legendary Pictures' Godzilla reboot has come to Comic Con at least. The main event, packed with presentations for television, movies, comic books, and just about every other nerdy passion possible, will kick off with a Preview Night on Wednesday the 17th, and then run through Sunday the 21st. We'll be covering all of the Con's biggest events, and among a packed schedule of panels and preview screenings will be a Godzilla offering at 10:45 AM, Saturday July 20th. But as precursor to that, Legendary has been busy making Godzilla's presence known with some clever street art.
Shock Till You Drop drew our attention to the tweets above. Each features a different angle of one San Diego building that has obviously felt the wrath of this rebooted beast. Are these meant to be claw marks? Or perhaps what happens when the massive tail of a giant lizard monster makes contact wit a brick building? If you look close in the second image, you might make out a big, glaring red eye, which makes the guy in the yellow jacket's apparent disinterest kind of hilarious. We expect to see more of the beast at the previously mentioned Godzilla panel. You can check out its official description below:
"Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures Preview Their Upcoming Lineups Legendary Pictures: 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. Gareth Edwards directs Godzilla, which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, and Juliette Binoche, with David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. The screenplay is by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont, and Dave Callaham. Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing with Mary Parent and Brian Rogers. Alex Garcia and Patricia Whitcher are the executive producers, alongside Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira. The film is from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures."
This is the closest thing we've gotten to a plot synopsis since the project was announced at last year's Comic Con. Sure, we've seen a couple of behind-the-scenes photos, but they were far from eye-opening. We do know Sally Hawkins is playing a scientist, and her co-star Elizabeth Olsen has confessed that this reboot—or "rebirth"—will have much more in common with the original Japanese movie, than say its last glossy American revamp. But the curious synopsis above teases that Godzilla won't be the only gargantuan monster in the movie, and even suggests he won't be the baddie. So once mankind's scientific hubris leads to massive mutations, could Godzilla prove our hero? We'll find out more once Comic Con is in full swing. In the meantime, let's remember how Godzilla stacked up in The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny:
People of San Diego, if you spot more Godzilla destruction around your fair city, be sure to send us two twitpics @Cinemablend.
