With the hype snowballing for “Godzilla,” fans have been craving more and more information about the film. Now, Legendary Pictures has released over 20 new images from the kaiju film and some of them will have you doing a double take. Check them out!
“Godzilla” director Gareth Edwards is currently on a press junket promoting the film and recently announced his top three favorite movie monsters. Here is his rundown.
1.) Obviously, number one is Godzilla. That goes without saying.
2.) I’m not sure if it counts as a monster movie, but I think one of the greatest films ever made was “Jaws.” And if it’s not a monster movie, I don’t know what it is.
3.) It’s a tough one, but I think I would probably say, somewhere between Ridley Scott’s “Alien,” and James Cameron’s “Aliens.” I just think the design of that creature is just phenomenal. Like H.R. Giger no one’s come close to something that unique or something that big a step forward in terms of creature design.
Do you agree? Or, do you have a different top 3? Let us know!
