Godzilla 2014

Check out the new Godzilla. You’ve already seen some of his destruction in the first trailer for the Godzilla remake, but we haven’t yet seen the big monster or heard him roar. Some may scoff at this kind of thing because, who cares really? It’s just another sound effect from yet another rehash straight out of the Hollywood remake market.

Or is it? With director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) on the job, we’ve got plenty of reasons to be interested. It’s an American retelling of a monster classic, a guerrilla director given a studio budget and from what we’ve seen so far, it’s faithful as all hell. Now we get a peek at the big guy’s full design courtesy of Empire and an official soundbite of the roar. If you’re gaining interest in this Godzilla reboot, today is a big day for you.

Up first, the roar. He sounds a little groggy, but the end is killer.

The look of Godzilla is next, courtesy of the upcoming Empire cover. This is clearly more along the lines of the classic design than what we saw in Roland Emmerich’s 1998 attempt. That’s a very good thing.

What do you all think of the new Godzilla design and roar? Exactly the sort of classic we’ve been hoping for, or not good enough?
