As we collectively hold our breath in anticipation of the bad-assery that will more than likely be Gareth Edward's feature film Godzilla on May 16, today Yahoo! Movies has given us our first look at the titular monster in this newly released poster.
Commenting on the artwork, the site posits that, "easily twice as big as its tallest building, the Transamerica Pyramid — and, as that skyscraper stands at 48 floors, that makes Godzilla himself about 100 stories high."
I'd like to set things straight here (having visited the Vancouver set last year, I know exactly how tall this forthcoming iteration of 'The Big G' will be), though as I'm under embargo at present, 'mum' is the word. I will say though that in this writer's estimation, Godzilla fans aren't going to be let-down by his stature (like American's appetites, the radioactive lizard has been 'super-sized' since the 1954 Toho original), nor will they be by the film's stellar cast, which includes Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Ken Watanabe, among others.
