A couple days ago, Empire released a very cool, very artful magazine cover featuring Godzilla. Yesterday, we got a great new trailer for the movie, and now Empire has released a second cover, which gives a clear, full-on shot of the iconic monster. One of the comments I’ve been hearing (and have also said myself) is “Godzilla looks like Godzilla!” so thanks to Roland Emmerich for lowering the bar on that one. I think the more important quality is that Godzilla comes off as realistic, and the CGI hasn’t diminished his classic look.
Hit the jump to check out the magazine cover. The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, and Sally Hawkins. Godzilla opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 16th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Godzilla:
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
