Godzilla 2014 Release Date Announcement!!

Well everybody, our dreams are coming true. On September 13, 2012, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures jointly  announced the release date for the new Godzilla 2014 reboot. The film will come out on Friday, May 16, 2014.  Here's the official announcement from Legendary's facebook page:


BURBANK, CA, September 13, 2012 – Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have slated their take on the classic Godzilla franchise to kick off the Summer moviegoing season on May 16, 2014. The joint announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President of International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, and by Legendary Pictures.

Toho Co., Ltd.’s Godzilla franchise contains one of the most widely recognized movie monsters worldwide, including more than 25 films, multiple television programs, video games and book series. Legendary, which has been developing the project, and its partner Warner Bros. will return the character to its epic roots with a gritty, realistic actioner. The project will fall under Legendary’s overall agreement with Warner Bros.

The film is directed by Gareth Edwards, who earned worldwide acclaim for his feature directorial debut, “Monsters.” Edwards directs from a screenplay by David Callaham (“The Expendables” films), David S. Goyer (the “Dark Knight” trilogy) and Max Borenstein (upcoming “The Seventh Son”). Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce, along with Roy Lee, Dan Lin and Brian Rogers. Alex Garcia and Patricia Whitcher will serve as executive producers alongside Doug Davison, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.

A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd. The tent pole film is expected to be presented in 3D.


Incidentally, Godzilla will open the same weekend as Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. I'm not worried about the competition. We can expect more details on Godzilla coming soon, hopefully at the Comic-con in October. I hope to see the teaser trailer online, soon, too. I've placed a countdown clock on my top page, about a year and a half to go. Hang in there G-fans, there's light at the end of the tunnel.


More Godzilla 2014 Fan Art

Here are a few cool images I found online. They are all fan made and not official Legendary Pictures designs. The model was no doubt inspired by the teaser trailer image from Comic-con on July 15. There's also a faux DVD cover that uses older images, but looks pretty cool.

Comic-con, San Diego,  July 15, 2012:

Yes, everyone, The Godzilla 2014 reboot is still a go. Legendary Pictures held a Godzilla 2014 discussion panel with director Gareth Edwards and also released an official teaser poster with the word "Godzilla", and "Gojira" in Japanese in the background. The poster is the first official image released from Legendary since their Godzilla illustration in 2010. Most exciting of all, they showed a teaser trailer. The trailer is not available yet online, but an attendee snapped a still photo of Godzilla, pretty cool stuff. Here's the poster and the still image. I've also included a short video of Edwards talking about the film. He said he's always wanted to do a Godzilla film and this one is "realistic" and "grounded", not a sci-fi film.
