Meet Empire's Godzilla Subscriber Cover
UPDATE: He is monster, hear him roar!

24 February 2014  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Exclusive

You know what's cooler than our new Godzilla subscribers cover? No, we can't think of anything either. Like a penguin in a blender, it's black and white and red all over, and gives you some idea of the mayhem we can expect from Gareth Edward's monster movie.

As you might guess from that Rising Sun-esque background, the film has one foot in Godzilla's traditional Japanese stomping ground, but this monster has a passport and will travel - as those choppers might suggest.

The film boasts an accomplished human cast, including Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and David Straithairn, but it's the main man himself who required most care and attention from the director.

"Trying to get the face right was the main thing," says Edwards. "I guess he's got more of a bear's face, or a dog's. We also used eagle. There's a lot of nobility in an eagle. It made him feel very majestic and noble." Edwards also used London-based motion-capture facility The Imaginarium and its head, one Andy Serkis, on certain sequences to "control the souls" (as Edwards puts it) of his creations.

Godzilla hits screens on May 16, but you can pick up the new issue of Empire this Thursday (February 27) on newsstands. If you're a subscriber, of course, you don't have to worry about tracking one down on Thursday because you'll get this dishy cover any day now. And as if that weren't enough, keep your eyes peeled for more Godzilla goodness in the next few days...

UPDATE: You can now hear Godzilla's roar thanks to this handy SoundCloud file. Be sure to turn your speakers all the way up to 11...

RE: Meet Empire's Godzilla Subscriber Cover
I'd have that on my wall. Interesting that the only two recent subscriber covers that I think were worthwhile were both a bit Japanese: this and The Wolverine. More

So that's what happens when your broadband plays up just as you're posting a comment(!) Why the fuck isn't there a way to delete you comments, surely needed in case of situations like this?!? Apols! More

Wow...is that it?
I normally just comment on film reviews but I had to say how lame this is as an "exclusive cover". It looks so cheap. More

Makes a change from "Avengers spin-off no. 37" or "X Men: Wolverine's Second Cousin" I guess. More
