Filming on the sequel to Gareth Edwards amazing re imagining of Godzilla (2014) has been taking place in Atlanta now for just over two weeks and the first on set photos have leaked out. Not much can be seen in any of the pics, all they contain are images of Warner Bros trailers and cars in all sorts of disrepair. It's the usual collateral damage stuff that exists in every single giant monster movie since 1933 when King Kong decided that he didn't like the civilized world very much and went ... well ape.
Here is an eyewitness report:
GODZILLA II Night Filming from the scheduled Inman Village ParkWay shoot that happened two days ago.
According to bystanders and witnesses, there were a lot of thunderous noises, booms, and monster sounds emitting around the location. With cars turned over, flames roaring, and with debris scattered everywhere. And clearly from the glimpses of the set, it must have been quite the night!
Though somewhat interesting the real meat and potatoes that has been floating around the rumor mill is that Godzilla 2 (previously known as Godzilla: King of the Monsters) will feature some previously unannounced cameos by some more monsters from the Toho movie series. It has been rumored that Anguirus, Varan and Ebirah (yes the giant lobster) (Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah have been confirmed) will appear in some capacity in the film. These reports, of course, have not been confirmed but they certainly will make for chatter on the Big G message boards and fan sites.
It should also be noted that Godzilla himself reportedly will be getting a makeover to more resemble the traditional G designs from the Japanese movie series.
I have included some potential designs for Anguirus, Varan and Ebirah that include stamps from Legendary Pictures. Take these with a grain of salt though ... there are a ton of talented fans out there!
