Check out Godzilla (2014) concept art!
The new Godzilla movie comes out tomorrow and Shock Till You Drop got some concept art from the book Godzilla: The Art of Destruction that show what Godzilla almost looked like. Director Gareth Edwards said that a lot of thought went into the creature's look. He said they "tried to sharpen and straighten his face and his body so it's less rounded. Because I find if something looks too round, you could get into Muppet territory — it could get too cutesy." They were also inspired by things like birds of prey, Komodo dragons and the Skeksis from The Dark Crystal (1982).
