The rebooted Godzilla will be stomping into cinemas in May 2014.
The movie, which is directed by Brit Gareth Edwards who made the sublime no-budget sci-fi thriller Monsters, "returns the creature to its epic roots with a gritty, realistic actioner," Warner Bros said.
Edwards directs from a screenplay by David Callaham (The Expendables films), David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy) and Max Borenstein (upcoming The Seventh Son).
The first of more than 25 Godzilla films was released in 1954 with the most recent American big screen version - Godzilla - directed by Roland Emmerich in 1998.
Warner Brothers release the movie worldwide on May 16 2014.
