Rocket News 24 has posted some concept illustrations of different monsters that were under consideration to be used in Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures' Godzilla of last year.
It is questionable whether inclusion of these monsters would have made for a better movie (I gave the movie a B+), but they are interesting to see.
Before showing the monsters, Rocket News 24 wrote:
Godzilla, the gargantuan dinosaur-like creature that has starred in roughly 30 movies to date, has to be one of the most famous characters to ever come out of Japan. Since its first appearance on the screen in 1954, Godzilla has captured the fascination of fans around the world and has become one of the most recognizable symbols of Japan. Yes, there just seems to be something about Godzilla that we can’t get enough of, and even if you’re not a hard-core kaiju fan, we’re guessing that many of you saw the Hollywood movie that was released last year.
Now, the monster action in that movie was certainly spectacular to look at, but don’t you think it would be interesting to see some ideas for monsters that didn’t appear in the film? Well, that’s exactly what we’re sharing with you here today!To see them, go here.
