Look! Up in the sky! It’s a giant foot coming right for my face! That’s the feeling I get from this new behind the scenes pic from Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla that Legendary just released. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Johnson are standing around with Edwards in the middle of a wrecked city street. I don’t want to have to be the guy that rakes all that up.
Obviously there isn’t a lot to pick up from this, as it comes from the same scene that was seen in one of the official stills, but there is a fresh nugget of news. Stargate SG-1‘s Garry Chalk, who is probably most recognizable recently for his work on the thriller series The Killing, but he’s had quite the prolific career over the past 30 years. A lot of that involves his animation voicework, which has taken him everywhere from Double Dragon to Voltron Force to Captain N: The Game Master.
There’s no word on what role he’ll be playing, or why this announcement is coming so late. Maybe there was a new edit that added a scene with him. In any case, this is what he looks like.
What’s that? You say you haven’t seen enough pictures in this story that don’t really tell you anything new? Below you’ll find a leaked screenshot taken from what is possibly going to be a video game. It isn’t known whether it would be a console or mobile game, but they do know that a free tie-in mobile game is being developed from indie company Foundation 9. So it’s possible that’s where this is from. In any case, it’s a shot of a pissed off Godzilla moving out of frame. That, or it’s just a bunch of gray dust and I’m experiencing pareidolia.
Fans of the original Godzilla, which I’ll assume is everyone, will be happy to know Ishiro Honda’s classic 1954 franchise starter will be screening at this year’s South by Southwest festival in Austin. It’ll be fully restored, with an additional 40 minutes cut from the U.S. release of the film. After the screening, Edwards will be on hand for a Q&A for audiences. Here’s the SXSW announcement video below.
