A new poster has debuted for Godzilla, which reveals the epic scale of this iconic monster as it will appear in director Gareth Edwards' upcoming American reboot of the franchise. This is the first official reveal of Godzilla's backside, and as we've suspected all along, this version of the Japanese behemoth will be closer to the original than the 1998 version that seemed to upset a lot of fans. Take a look as the massive monster makes his way through an unprepared San Francisco, with15 paratroopers launching their attack.

<strong><em>Godzilla</em></strong> Poster

The original Godzilla stood somewhere between 164 ft to 328 ft. If we're to believe this new poster, Godzilla has nearly tripled in size to be a whopping 1312 feet. That is bigger than any of the monsters or jaegers seen in last summer's Pacific Rim. This certainly explains the level of devastation we witnessed in the first trailer. Though, it should be noted that the marketers may have merely taken creative license with Godzilla, and he won't actually be that tall on screen. Its the same thing they do with Tom Cruise.

About his monster, director Gareth Edwards has this to say,

"[Godzilla is] a force of nature, like the wrath of God or vengeance for the way we've behaved".

Is he too big? Too small? Just the right size to terrorize a new audience?
