If you watched the recently-released teaser trailer for the upcoming “Godzilla,” then you were probably pretty blown away by the sheer scale of the titular creature. Based on the few glimpses we’ve had of the beast, it looks like Japan’s “King of the Monsters” is getting a serious size upgrade for his second Hollywood outing.
According to this fan-made chart, the city-destroying star of director Gareth Edwards' “Godzilla” reboot is estimated to be more than three times bigger than the original version and the version seen in Roland Emmerich’s 1998 movie of the same name. Godzilla has starred in more than 30 movies since making his debut in the 1954 classic “Gojira” and has traditionally been depicted as being between 50 and 100 metres tall.
The monster seen in Edwards’ version, on the other hand, is likely 120 to 150 metres tall (or close to 500 feet). Some intrepid fans have speculated that the 2014 iteration of Godzilla is even bigger -- upwards of 250 metres, or more than 820 feet -- basing the monster’s height on certain real-life skyscrapers seen in the trailer.Read More »from Just how big is Godzilla, anyway?
