Going back to the roots of the beast, Toho’s version is the slow, methodical, and deadly creature that he was originally known to be. However, the difference now is that Toho no longer has to rely on dressing up someone in a rubber suit and crushing miniatures to destroy Tokyo. The above video, reported by imag, shows the VFX that goes into making Godzilla in 2016.
While there are obvious things that would require CGI, like the monster and the destruction he causes, it’s the smaller things that really impress me, like the dust clouds surrounding Godzilla or even the hues of the skyline. I understand that CGI has its critics, but when it’s done WELL, it adds to a movie in amazing ways.
Now that you have taken a look at how the film was made, check out the final product in the trailer below.
