Doubtful. Some are still gonna skreeonk. Can't wait for the inevitable "this is poop, they skreeonked up Gareth's vision" rants that are likely to ensue.

We could probably unlock the Godzilla 2 speculation thread soon.

Now the questions remains whether we'll get footage or not.

Not really Godzilla per-se, but I thought this was interesting: Legendary is teaming with a Japanese studio called Sunrise for a live-action Gundam movie. It's kind of interesting to me because the MonsterVerse is pretty Legendary's main thing at the moment, and it's kind of neat to consider maybe they've found their niche in re-introducing Japanese works to the masses. Also, I sure can't wait for all the Godzilla/Gundam crossover speculation! (/s)

How insightful of you to predict people will say something they've already been saying based on the known stylistic differences of the two directors.

That's way more impressive than predicting a delay in release shortly before one is officially announced.

I hope the film will be good. There's zero evidence it will be of course, and plenty of circumstantial evidence suggesting it won't, but have a gander at my post history over the last couple years and you'll get an idea of my opinion. I have high hopes and low expectations.

Or you could just presume I'm an absolute hater cuz that's easier.

The pessimist in my said "sure they'll be at Hall H, but will they actually show anything, maybe it's just a discussion panel with cast and crew".

Then logic stepped in. You don't take up time at Hall H and not show something, especially for Godzilla. We're on our way folks, fun times ahead.

They will definitely show footage, the question is whether it will be released publicly. In the case that it isn't, we will at the very least be getting detailed descriptions of the footage that we know are legitimate as opposed to reading the supposed reactions from test screenings. I'm not suggesting the test screenings didn't happen (they did), I am though saying that the descriptions of those could easily be people spewing crap.

We'd basically get the rundown on how the G14 marketing started. Footage at Comic Con not released to the public, first trailer only gets released in December.

Let's hope it doesn't come to that. ^^'

Here's a thought guys...you guys remember the cloudy red title card used in the trailers for Godzilla 2014? I was thinking...it'd be cool if for Godzilla: KOTM, they did that, but it was blue. Or maybe yellow cause of King Ghidorah. Here, all this is is a fan made title card for the movie and I slapped a blue tint on to give you a hint of what I mean:

Even if the footage they show isn't released publicly, as long as we get a full detailed description of what was shown, I'm good.

My memory isn't perfect, but the G14 teaser took months and months to appear for public eyes. However, the panel the following year was up fairly quickly IIRC.

Gold would be better but yeah, nice idea.

True, but Kong came out in March while KOTM is now coming out right at the end of May.

We'll see what happens, but personally speaking I just don't want to wait more of a half-a-year for one official trailer.

You'll probably have to. But I was talking about G14's Oppenheimer teaser, and then the G14 panel.

It's dated July 21, 2013 on YT, and that's actually the last day that SDCC '13 ran that year.

They made Kong: Skull Island's teaser public. We can only hope.
btw, Chris Hardwick is so cringey.
