GODZILLA Special Effects Shot Featuring a Destroyed Subway Car

Godzilla Banner

Kudos to director Gareth Edwards for filming this shot for Legendary Pictures’ “Godzilla.” The green screen special effects scene is of a subway car presumably wrecked by the giant lizard.  In the original 1954 “Godzilla,” the monster rampages his way through Tokyo destroying a subway train in the process. This is a subtle homage to the first radioactive creature, and the havoc he was capable of reeking. (Notice the model’s detail and passengers.) Check out the pic!
