Japanese fans are deeply interested in how America is going to bring their national monster to the screen. Godzilla hits cinemas on May 15, 2014.
When clear pictures of the creature hit the Internet this week, the response was probably not what studio execs were hoping for. Some Japanese fans are apparently calling this incarnation of Godzilla “fat”.
The pictures, released by Warner Legendary through the Los Angeles Times, were immediately picked up by fan sites here in Japan. While some commenters said this Godzilla looked stronger than his ancestor, others were not as impressed. Source
“He’s so fat, I laughed.”
“Where’s his neck?”
“He’s gone and supersized himself!”
“I’m not surprised. A spare tire is expected in middle age.”
“Gee, even Godzilla has metabolic syndrome these days…”
Well he does look fat doesn’t it?
