One thing missing from the amazing Godzilla trailer that hit the ‘net a while back was "perspective." And by that, I mean, it was hard to get a sense of just how massive the new Godzilla would be. I mean, we did see military members paratrooping down ON to Godzilla. But the trailer lacked an establishing shot, one that gave us a clear image of Godzilla.
Obviously, the above poster corrects this issue.
Yahoo Movies has the new one-sheet, which has the King of Monsters with his (her?) back to us as the creature lords over a doomed city. Which doomed city? Well, that’s the Transamerica Pyramid, suggesting San Francisco is in serious trouble this summer. And as Yahoo notes, that building "stands at 48 floors," so the new Godzilla is massive.

If that roar doesn’t get your blood pumping, I fear nothing will.
The Godzilla reboot will be in theaters on May 16. I assume it will look NOTHING like this:
