'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' to Have Practical Effects!

The sequel has nabbed a practical effect maker legend and has basically confirmed the movie will be having some. Does this mean MAN IN SUIT?! MAN IN SUIT?! Probably not. Hopefully a puppet though.

So we've got a bit of new news on Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the sequel to the 2014 film. For once it's not about casting, but another key element: special effects. The first is that Tom Woodruff Jr. has joined the effect team. Now, for any sci-fi/horror fans you know this name well. He's played the Gill Man in Monster Squad, the Xenomorph in four of the movies (starting from Alien 3 up to Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem). The man learned from one of the best in practical effects in Stan Winston and went on to show off that wondrous talent in various films (the creature designer in the Tremors movies? Him. Starship Troopers creature effects? Him. Goro in Mortal Kombat? Him. The creature effects in the Alien franchise from creature effect coordinator in Aliens up to creature effects all the way again up to AvP:R? Him. 

So yes it's easy to say that there will be some practical effects used in this movie. That was further backed with director Mike Dougherty confirmed that the movie will have practical creature effects in it and that Woodruff Jr is on the special effect team for the movie.


So-- just what kind? Who knows. Maybe a little Rodan or Mothra larva. Oh, I'm sure this movie won't be going to Godzilla 1984 practical effect levels. But one can dream. Godzilla: King of the Monsters will honor us with his greatness on March 22nd, 2019.
