Legendary Pictures has gone kaiju-crazy. With a Godzilla remake in the works, for ComicCon they’ve set up The Godzilla Experience, an interactive environment and brief adventure which will have you imagining what it’s like to flee a giant monster. None of the imagery is based on the NEW Godzilla, but for fans of the old one it’s enough to bring a tear to your eye with an original prop from the 1954 original, an actual costume from Godzilla Millenium, a DNA swirl of the existing comics, a Tokyo street scene set up rich in detail and a swirling double helix made from Godzilla comics. FUN! Download the Godzilla Experience app and there are Easter Eggs to get more content.
To get in you must pick up a ticket from the Legendary booth and then go to J and Tony Gwynn way. Look for the building with the monster damage, and get in line. For fans of old Radioactive Breath, it’s a must do.
If you were as impressed as I was by the set-up, here’s an interview with head design man Barnaby Legg. For all our joking around the amount of hard work and imagination that goes into these “Brigadoon style” exhibits is amazing sometimes.
