Legendary Pictures is celebrating the release of their upcoming “Godzilla” film by returning to the roots with a nod of sorts to the original 1954 film. The film company has issued a new poster in black and white, which is the same format Toho’s 1954 “Godzilla” film was released in. This one-sheet showcases the true size and girth of the new and rebooted ‘King of the Monsters.’ Check this guy out!
