D'oh! (Homer's voice)
November 3rd, 2013-Happy Birthday Godzilla! Everyone's favorite radioactive lizard turns 59 today. But despite wide spread rumors(in no small part by yours truly), there was no official trailer released today for Legendary's Godzilla 2014 film and footage shown at Italy's Lucca Con a few days was the same as the leaked trailer. Nobody was more disappointed than me. I truly believed an official trailer was going to be released today. I think Legendary missed a huge viral opportunity with Godzilla's birthday. They haven't done much after San Diego's Comic-Con and the leaked teaser trailer. I think they're losing valuable hype-building time.
However, there was a snippet of information at Godzilla-Movies that according to twitter, Warner Bros. International said the trailer would come out with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug around December 11-13(depending on what country you're in). I guess Legendary thinks a movie about a giant fire-breathing reptile is the best time to reveal it's fire breathing iconic monster. This has yet to be confirmed and I'm still hopeful that the Godzilla trailer will be released with Thor 2: The Dark World next week. Regardless, it looks like Godzilla fans will have to wait a bit longer.
In the meantime, here's a great article from Tokage Kinja, "Five Biggest Challenges Facing the 2014 Godzilla Film".
