Godzilla debuts awesome new poster

Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla remake has released an excellent new poster online, featuring the titular beastie’s arrival in a major US city...

Bathed in the smoky orange glow of mass destruction, the new poster shows Godzilla marauding through an unspecified cityscape, creating havoc as he goes.

Gorgeous and terrifying in equal measure, it’s a brilliantly atmospheric teaser, and still manages to preserve a bit of mystique around the big bad himself...

Edwards’ remake will tell the tale of a soldier and his sweetheart separated amid the mayhem of the Godzilla event, as a panicked military tries to work out how to stop the giant lizard in his tracks.

Co-starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston, Godzilla will open in the UK on 16 May 2014.
