Let me just stress again that what they showed was more of a concept teaser trailer as nothing has actually been filmed for the Godzilla movie yet. But the tone and the visual gritty-ness of the trailer is why it was so exciting to watch. If they keep that same vision throughout the whole production, then this movie will be set!
The two photos released show us a glimpse of the giant monster, and the second image shows us the destruction that it caused. The movie is deep in pre-production and director Gareth Edwards will start shooting the movie in March of next year with aim for a May 16th, 2014 release.
Collider spoke with producer Dan Lin about what’s going on with the film:
We’re planning to film in March. We are in deep pre-production. Gareth [Edwards] has really mapped out his vision for the movie, you saw the teaser, but Gareth—thanks to [Legendary CEO] Thomas Tull’s help—he took over a whole stage on the Warner Brothers lot and not only showed the teaser you saw, he had some models built of Godzilla, he had art decorated all over the soundstage, he had pre-vis of some of the big action sequences in the movie.
So we’re in deep pre-production and Gareth’s vision of the movie is really exciting, it’s a true reboot of Godzilla. And you saw from the Comic-Con footage it is a grounded, realistic version of Godzilla. What would happen if Godzilla came into our world today?
