Okay! So... First off, no footage is available, yet. May not ever be. You know where to point the finger.
Update - 2013.07.21: We at least have video of the panel for you! Check it out, here.
They started off the panel by showing last year's footage, again. Crowd is please, blah blah, blah. Gareth Edwards comes up on stage, followed by Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Bryan Cranston.
Cranston was the clown, today. He had a lot of fun up on stage. King Kong appeared to be a wimp to him, so Godzilla was his favorite monster growing up. He was initially worried about taking a role in such an iconic film, but after watching Monsters, he was convinced that Edwards could balance the character and action.
If you checked out the interviews with Edwards from Friday, you'll recall that it took Gareth and crew over a year to develop a human story with relatable characters and an interesting story. This isn't to be a Godzilla movie with people in it, it's a movie about people with Godzilla in it. They worked very hard to make the story unfold through the events in the film and not just have mindless destruction. That said, Cranston always enjoyed the unapologetic scope of destruction in Godzilla films. Here's hoping for some of that in this one!
Elizabeth Olsen will play a nurse and mother in the film. She loved working on the movie because it felt very much like an independent flick, a sentiment which we'd previously heard from Aaron Taylor-Johnson. She was always filming with very little downtime.
They just wrapped up shooting a couple days ago and are now working on editing and effects. Long year ahead, guys! They loved shooting in Vancouver because the Canadians were so nice. Bryan Cranston interjected with an impression of a friendly, Canadian Godzilla to the amusement of the crowd.
When Edwards first went to Canada, the border agents Googled him, and when the realized he was directing the new Godzilla film, they got excited and said, "Don't f*ck it up, man!" Again, the audience erupted. They also apparently took the time to give the director some pointers. Thanks, Canada!
After this, they announced that they had something to show Hall H. Bryan Cranston got up and began removing his pants to hooting and cheering. We love you Bryan! Can't wait to see it! -The film! Can't wait to see you in this film... call me!
I'm going to try and piece this together from multiple sources, so bear with me. This might be entirely accurate.
- The Legendary and WB logos flash before revealing a flooded city.
- Cranston removes his radiation suit. A clip of Olsen crying...
- Paratroopers jumping from a plane, missiles, and a giant monster - that isn't Godzilla!
- A four-legged, insectoid creature with wings is battling with the military.
- It tears apart a plane at an airport and the fusalage is thrown aside where it explodes on the scaley foor of Godzilla!
- He's massive, and dwarfs the insect.
- Apparently, he cruses the beast in an instant and roars.
- View looking up, but you can't see all of the king behind the dust and smoke.
- Another roar and the 2014 logo comes in.
There you have it! Best I've got for now. I pieced this together from ComingSoon.net's liveblog of the even as well as posts from attendees. This may be innaccurate, but I will try to keep you informed of any corrections. I'll post the transcript of the liveblog from ComingSoon.net and a few more images after the break.
No reveal just yet, folks! No word on what's going on with that Bandai figure, either. For now, just enjoy this image from last year.
Update - 2013.07.21: Updated to clarify the events of the panel now that the footage is online.
