Godzilla Is Back and Comic Con Got Him!

by Armand Vaquer
The Associated Press put the story out.  The Washington Post picked it up.  So did CBS News.  And the Huffington Post posted it.  Many others did as well.

What's the big news?

Legendary Pictures/Warner Brothers' Godzilla is the big news. And it comes from Comic Con International in San Diego.

The best write-up (in my humble opinion) was by the fine folks at Dread Central.  Here's part of what they wrote on the teaser trailer that was shown:
A city decimated. Completely destroyed. The camera pans by the wreckage of a train, A distant voice is heard reading from the Book of Revelations. The voice sounds very familair. Dust everywhere. Cars crushed. Holes in skyscrapers. 
It becomes obvious that the voice belongs to Raymond Burr from the original. We then see a giant centipede-like creature with many arms and legs smoldering. (You know what that means? Monster battles!) The city appears dead as a doornail. Then blackness. THE ROAR. As in THE roar. Huge bass drop. Raymond Burr finishes his famous speech. Dust...then an arm... a hand... with claws. Pan up... holy shit... the fins. The head. Godzilla. As we know him. The real fucking Godzilla. He roars again. 
Finally, it appears that after 14 years since the TriStar disaster of 1998, we're getting the American Godzilla we've been waiting for!

From Dread Central's write-up, it seems that Legendary Pictures/Warner Brothers is getting Godzilla right!
