In March, Legendary Pictures announced it was partnering with Warner Bros to bring Godzilla back to the big screen.  While no director has been announced yet, producers are still targeting a 2012 release date to reboot the Japanese monster.

To promote the upcoming film at Comic-Con, Legendary gave out complimentary T-shirts with the new design of the giant lizard and hired Talking Dog Studios to create an AR application that simulated ”atomic breath” from the monster’s mouth and the iconic roar.  It’s difficult to describe, but the video below will give you an idea. Then be sure to scroll down to see the concept art.

Todd at TwitchFilm heard this is not necessarily related to the movie, but I can’t imagine what else it would be for, especially since the press release mentions the movie several times. Perhaps they’re hesitant to make anything official without a director on board?

This is a vast improvement over Roland Emmerich’s divergent design in 1998, and hopefully this time we’ll get a more convincing hero than Matthew Broderick.
