Will Godzilla Use Suitmation In Addition To CGI


From Godzilla-movies.com

There's been a rumor in circulation since February that TOHO, the license holders for the Godzilla franchise may potentially require that Legendary Pictures, the studio behind the 2014 Godzilla reboot, use some suitmation at some point throughout the film in addition to CGI effects.

Since Gareth Edwards' Godzilla is based on the TOHO original, unlike the 1998 TriStar Godzilla film, it is possible TOHO wishes to keep certain aspects of the iconic Godzilla films alive in this new remake. However, this rumor is unconfirmed at this point and there is no official word on Gareth Edwards' intentions of using a man in a suit in his 2014 Godzilla reboot.

Suitmation is rarely used in today's films with the over abundance of cutting edge special effects, but some movie-goers will argue that having a physical actor in a suit adds a more "realistic" feel to overall film. It ultimately depends on if this rumor is in fact true and if Director Gareth Edwards decides he wishes to continue this tradition of Godzilla movie making.
