GODZILLA promo movie poster from Legendary Pictures

Movie news on the street is that Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures have commenced with actual production of the Gareth Edwards film, Godzilla, starring David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, and Juliette Binoche.
