Right after we saw our first glance at the giant monsters in Pacific Rim, we were treated to even more kaiju awesomeness! We saw the first glimpse — ever — of the new Godzilla movie, directed by Monsters director Gareth Edwards. The wreckage alone was amazing.
We see huge black clouds, massive smoke, and slowly it clears away revealing a ruined city. There are hundreds of crashed cars and rubble — buildings are broken in half and people are crawling over the sideways ruins of buildings. Some buildings have had massive chunks torn out of the middle of them, like when a cartoon character runs through a wall.
A voiceover says: "We knew the world would not be the same. A few people cried, most people were silent. I remember things — lines from the end of scripture. Vishnu takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.'"
We see the side of something huge, like a mountain. We only slowly realize it's actually a monster. There is something like lava running down the side of it. And then there are huge CLAWS. The monnster is laying on its side. There is a huge Godzilla scream! Like a massive trumpet sounding!
And then Godzilla is rampaging through the city, trashing buildings with its huge claw. Buildings collapse. THOOM. A giant arm swapeps across the city and everything crashes. We see its massive spiky back and then the trademark face. The monster opens its mouth and SCREAMS.
Director Gareth Edwards had one thing to tell the panel: "There's nothing scifi about this movie. It's very grounded, very realistic."
