Godzilla Towers Over TCL Chinese Theatre’s Historic Forecourt


With the roar over the anticipated film, Godzilla, coming to theaters, a monstrous 20 ft. plus sculpture of Godzilla was unveiled at the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX Forecourt in Hollywood Friday, May 9th.

The sculpture was unveiled from behind a massive curtain at 10 a.m. at the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX in the historic forecourt.

For the hardcore fans, or wandering folks around Hollywood Blvd., the towering Godzilla sculpture will open to the public, posing for photos until May 19.

Godzilla, originally released in 1954 in Japan by film producer, Toho, is based on a monster mutated by nuclear radiation who terrorized a city that brought back the horrors of World War II.

The legendary film has been recreated more than 20 times in different languages and countries, including the American productions filmed in 1956, 1985, 1998, and the anticipated 2014 summer film.

Stars including Aaron Taylor-Johnson from Kick-Ass, Academy Award nominated David Strathairn from the Bourne Ultimatum, and Bryan Cranston from the hit television show “Breaking Bad” are set to star in the Sci-Fi flick.

Presale tickets for the film at the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX have already broken records, where the movie sneak peak opens Thursday, May 15 at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Godzilla opens Friday, May 16 nationwide.
