Legendary Pictures' Godzilla 2014 reboot is one of the most highly anticipated trailers on the web and excitement is reaching critical mass. I thought it was surprising that since Comic-con, there has been no leaked trailer or footage on the web. Now I understand why.
It was reported recently on Comic Book Movie and Godzilla Movies that it's rumored that FINALLY the Godzilla 2014 movie trailer will debut in the very near future. If that's true, the most likely date is November 3rd. Why November 3rd? Because the original Gojira(1954) was released on that day.
November 3rd is a national holiday in Japan, Culture Day where Japanese enjoy traditional arts and music. More recently, it has the lesser known title of Godzilla Day. Yes, that's right folks, Godzilla has his own holiday. So what better day to reveal the new trailer than on Godzilla Day, November 3rd.
From the beginning, Legendary Pictures has repeatedly stated they want to honor the original Godzilla series and remain true to the character. This is exactly what fans wanted to hear. We saw Legendary made good on their promise at the San Diego Comic-con's Godzilla Encounter event which showed the new design, or at least very close to it. The new Godzilla has an original look, but is clearly recognizable as the King of the Monsters; a bipedal creature with dorsal plates, a long tail, a tapering neck and small, savage looking head. Bad memories of 1998's giant iguana will soon be wiped away.
Legendary has been carefully developing this picture for nearly 4 years, including promotion, through there viral website, Godzilla Encounter, slowly building hype. Now the time is ripe to reveal Godzilla to the world at exactly the right time on this historic day. This Godzilla will blow people out of the water and be the 'monster' hit of 2014. Keep your eyes peeled to TV and this website on November 3rd. The wait is almost over!
