WOW! This will be epic in Stereo 3D! Tim here, and my mind is blown my this teaser trailer. I mean, literally blown. Godzilla, directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters from 2010) the short synopsis is: A giant radioactive monster called Godzilla appears to wreak destruction on mankind. The movie stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston. There is still no word on whether this is a native 3D film or a conversion.
The cinematographer was Seamus McGarvey (Marvels: The Avengers) and it was shot on the ARRI ALEXA. Likely it's a conversion, and I believe this since in the trivia for the movie on IMDB it says "For the 1950s scenes, cinematographer Seamus McGarvey wanted "a peeled look with muted colors and diffused highlights." To achieve this, he shot those scenes with vintage 1960s camera lenses and additionally had the shades of black in those scenes digitally tinted in magenta." For now you can enjoy the trailer below as we work to find this native or conversion information out.
The way this trailer opens is absolutely stunning. LOVE IT! The paratroopers going into battle over music (Lux Aeterna (1966) by György Ligeti) that was used at the beginning of 2001: A Space Odyssey is absolutely chilling, and visually breathtaking. Edwards did an excellent job with his Monsters movie, writing, directing and doing the VFX for it, and it looks like we're getting a great film with his Godzilla. Apparently you can also check it out on the big screen in front of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug this weekend.
The expected release of this mega movie is May 16th, 2014 in 3D with Dolby Atmos.
