Legendary clamped down harder than last year in making sure no electronic devices could reveal Godzilla footage or of the first actual look of the King of the Monsters. Regardless, here's what happened at the panel:
- The panel opens with an old fashioned black and white news footage on the screen showing off nuclear testing. The title card: GODZILLA emerges from the nuclear blast. With that the film's director Gareth Edward takes to the stage followed by the film's cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston.
Edward says that filming for the movie just wrapped two days ago on Hawaii. Other highlights of the panel was Edwards talking about the pressure to make the best Godzilla film he can and honor the Toho film series. He also tells a story of when filming was in Canada and a border agent after learning that Edwards was directing the movie told him: "DON'T FUCK IT UP, MAN!"
Trailer to the movie was shown:
Warner Brothers and Legendary logos are in black and white.
We cut to soldiers running through streets.
Cranston's character taking off a radiation suit.
Olsen's character in tears.
Paratroopers jumping off a plane.
A kaiju appears, but it's not Godzilla (very spider-like, but not Toho kaiju Kunmonga).
The kaiju is attacking a dock and the soldiers are fighting it, though losing.
A massive scaled foot then slams down to the ground.
The Kaiju notices the King of the Monster's presence.
The rogue Kaiju is so freaking toast.
Footage cuts to the Godzilla logo and 2014!!!!
There was no description was avaiable as to just how Godzilla looks when compared to what was shown a few days ago. If there's a leaked picture unearthed from the panel we'll post it.
