Godzilla Fever Roars On With New Art Book, Giant Toy And Mobile Game Trailer
We are living in the modern age, where the Internet is the source of almost all information to the outside world. So itís somewhat comforting that physical media can still be the source of new imagery from upcoming films, such as X-Men: Days of Future Pastís Empire cover overload. (Even though it all gets revealed online before things go on sale.) And the biggest applause goes to Gareth Edwardsí Godzilla, which has done a remarkable job of keeping a tight lid on official peeks at its monstrous central character. Our latest look at Godzillaís fearsome mug is the frozen roar captured on Godzilla: The Art of Destruction, Mark Cotta Vazís visually-minded tie-in, which compiles an assortment of pre-production materials. Youíd better put about 300 coffee tables down to hold this one up.
Via Yahoo!ís Twitter page, we get a nice red-tinged shot, where you can almost see his enormous tonsils. I havenít seen a shot yet of Godzilla that hasnít strengthened my confidence in Edwardsí vision, and this is no exception. Itís not as cool as the Mondo poster or the magazine cover, but I bet the goodies inside will be amazing. The book is set to release on May 13, a few days before the film destroys theaters, and will contain concept illustrations, interviews, storyboards and more. My birthday isnít until October, but if anyone wants to get me a belated Motherís Day present, donít mind that Iím a guy.
For a less Photoshopped but more plastic take on the beast, check out the images below that MTV released of JAKKS Pacificís massive Giant Size Godzilla, which looks to be three feet of pure tail-swinging mayhem. This is the toy you want to hide in the shower before a friend or family member heads to the bathroom.
And if that wasnít enough, Total Film also put out a few beautiful images from the film, which you can see below.
And finally, Rogue Play has released the trailer for their upcoming mobile game Godzilla Ė Smash3, from Pipeworks Software. While nifty looking images of Godzilla ransacking a city are seen up top, there is a board of pieces you need to match to smash, slash and bite everything around you across many different locations. Plus you can upgrade Godzilla, just like Edwards did. Watch the trailer below.
And what better way to end this stream of Godzilla-ness than with the greatest trailer of 2014.
