But then, last time the mighty Godzilla visited America in 1998, the results weren't pretty. However, with Gareth Edwards, director of 2010's amazing low-budget creature feature Monsters, there is potential.

From the somewhat abstract design of this poster, it looks a lot closer to the Godzilla we grew up with. Toho put the irradiated dinosaur's film series on moratorium back in 2004 after Godzilla: Final Wars, so next year will mark both the 60th anniversary of the original film and ten years since he's been onscreen.
There have been distorted photos of a teaser that played at the convention last year:
Hopefully, we'll get some kind of legitimate look at what the Big G will actually look like this weekend.
