Godzilla 2014 Film to Use Suitmation?

With the filming of Gareth Edward's Godzilla 2014 film reboot currently ongoing, there have been some information that they might use suitmation, or actual suit actors under the suit, in addition to computer generated effects, as per TOHO's directive.

According to, there have been a rumor that TOHO, the license holders for the Godzilla franchise may potentially require that Legendary Pictures to use some suitmation, similar as to how the original Japanese Godzilla films were done. So far, there's no official confirmation on this as of writing.

Directed by Britsh indie director Gareth Edwards (Monsters), Godzilla opens May 16th, 2014. The film stars Aaron-Taylor Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, and Ken Watanabe. It is said to "return the character to its epic roots with a gritty, realistic actioner."

    I hope Toho really makes Legendary use a suit actor for Godzilla or a combination of both cgi and suit. It makes Godzilla authentic and preserves the legacy of previous ones, not counting that 1998 crapfest. I hope this movie can deliver for it's 60th anniversary movie.

    for me it would be a mixed bag, having seen the original film by tristar with CGI godzilla in it with everything else live action, i think tristar did good with the CGI at the time, had it been done in today's technical genius CG godzilla would have been awesome. the CG program godzilla was animated on at the time was through microsoft with a unknown program and provided by sony pictures imageworks. if the rumor is true that TOHO has given the orders to the director that they want suitmation like in the original films under them and not columbia tristar than we go for suitmation, but I would say with CGI having come along as far as it has when it was introduced in 1995 with toy story, CGI godzilla could work again in a fantastic way in comparison to tri star's attempt in 1998 at CGI zilla in collaboration with microsoft and sony pictures imageworks.
