The 'Godzilla' Remake Gets A Poster... Let The Weird & Wonderful Tie In Marketing Begin!!!!!!


As a long-time fan of the Godzilla movies and cousin to the biggest Godzilla fan ever (what up James West!) I for one am looking forward to the new Godzilla movie directed by Gareth Edwards (who directed the criminally under viewed 'Monsters'), mostly due to the amazing cast that will appear in the movie (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olson, Brian Cranston, and Ken Watanabe just to name a few). A few days ago the first image of the actual Godzilla monster (above) was leaked due to a licensing convention in San Paolo, Brazil. It is the 1st time we see exactly what the monster looks like, and it looks like they have chosen to give him more human like facial features (as opposed to the over saturated CGI of the 90's version) and I am sold but, the key point is that the reveal was at a licensing expo, so that means product tie-ins. I don't know exactly what we will see in the future, but one item certainly has my attention. Godzilla Sake anyone???

Check out more after the jump...



Japanese artist Ito Shigeaki and liquor company Choujugura teamed up to create a Godzilla shaped sake bottle to help bring the monster to your liquor cabinet. It is filled with Shochu, which is apparently a liquor that is stronger than wine and sake. Fitting that the beast is filled with such a strong drink. The bottle opts for the older look of the King of All Monsters... but, this opens up the possibility of tons of cool merchandise tie ins we may see in the future. They only made 3,000 of these special bottles, so click here to order your own now.

  1. Monsters was one of the greatest surprises I have encountered in a movie theatre in a long time. Even more so when I learned how it was made on the cheep.
