Godzilla 2012 from Legendary Pictures

When Warner Brothers affiliate Legendary Pictures - responsible for such critically acclaimed films as Inception, Where the Wild Things Are, The Dark Knight, 300, and Watchmen - wanted to use Augmented Reality to announce their latest film, they turned to Saskatchewan's Talking Dog Studios to provide them with the technology to do so.

This week, Legendary Pictures is at San Diego's Comic-Con International, the world's biggest comics and pop culture convention, celebrating the beginning of production on their next film: Godzilla. Persons attending the conference will receive a t-shirt with an image of the new Godzilla, and when they look at themselves in a webcam at the Legendary Pictures tradeshow booth, they'll see a superimposed animation of Godzilla's "atomic breath" shooting out into the air in front of them from Godzilla's mouth, complete with black smoke rising from the flames and the ground-shaking bellow of Godzilla's instantly recognizable roar.

This immersive experience was designed by Talking Dog Studios, of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, and was supervised by Larry Monte of California's Corporate Images. Talking Dog have been developing various AR applications for the past year, but owner Rob Bryanton sees this as a major step forward: "Augmented Reality is very open-ended, which is great because the possibilities are so wide, but it's something that is best experienced rather than described," says Bryanton. "With the Godzilla installation, we were able to quickly create something that our clients were immediately happy with, so we see this as a great recognition of the skillset that we've now developed".

Godzilla was released May 16th, 2014 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Cameron Adams, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Carson Bolde, Sally Hawkins, Juliette Binoche. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards.

    @Bawnianxyz the godzilla wasn't the only problem. The entire movie was. horrible acting, script, story, visuals.

    I don't know why people hated the 1998 american version....When the Japanese made Gojira, in the 50's, there weren't any other monsters and it was man vs giant lizard that breathed fire. So the American version to me was like making the first ever Godzilla, in their own image: big, lizard, destructive, and breathes fire. Know what I mean?

    Just hope they don't incorporate the ol' "oxygen destroyer" bit again :P

    I agree, you can have Godzilla as PG-13 and it still be badass. It's a monster destroying cities, that doesn't necessarily mean it has to be gory, just a lot of destruction. I want to know if he's going to fight another monster or just humans?

    Godzilla movie at Christmas time? Now THAT'S how you deck the halls! :P

    December 21st would be quite a fitting release date for this. Given the rep of the studio, then this can be worth keeping tabs on.

    Agreed, Moviefreak. Godzilla was never an R rated conception. Could be, but even Cloverfield wasn't R and it could have been. Bad economy =s fewer R films. That's how it is.

    Maybe Godzilla can teach Cloverfields monster a lesson ;)

    no make it pg-13 that way it can make more money and i wonder what new monster godzilla faces i hope it is either obsidius or krystalak that would be awsome

  25. the Narrator

    When it was first announced Legendary Pictures was doing this remake, I was like, "F*ck yeah!"... Now, I am like, "F*CK YEAH!!!". I too look forward to plot details and which director will take charge of this potentially massive project.

    I don't know. I'm a little skeptical. I personally don't want to see anything that resembles the Japanese films. Hopefully they do something very unique with the design of Godzilla. A lot of people didn't like Roland Emmerich's version, but one thing I did like was the unique take on the design for Godzilla, visually and story-wise.

    Now THAT'S Godzilla!! Holy crap. Awesome. Hope they keep this design and darkness. Can't wait for plot details!

    This looks like we Godzilla fans were expecting when 98 Godzilla disapointed us so bad with their take on a Godzilla look.
