Briefly: Director Michael Dougherty, in response to a fan, confirmed on Twitter that practical effects will be implemented in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

The information comes directly after Dougherty confirmed the involvement of creature artist Tom Woodruff Jr--Best known for bringing beasts to life via animatronics, suits and make-up. The extent of the practical effects use remains unknown, but given Hollywood's conservative nature with the technique(s) the movie is still expected to use a liberal amount of CG.

The more hands-on approach to bringing monsters to life was sorely missed in the 2014 Godzilla. The inclusion of practical effects work is much closer to the spirit of the franchise and its forefathers.

What do you think of practical effects being used in Godzilla: King of the Monsters? What techniques do you expect to be used? How will it be executed? Let us know in the comments below!

It works for me.

I'm not, nor have I ever been, married to one technique to bring any effects to the screen. To me, they are a means to an end. As long as it's seamless, and works in the context of the movie, scene, etc., I'm all for whatever is going to look good. Budget, time, and technical expertise generally drive what is going to be employed. Bringing Woodruff/ADI into the fold definitely means practical effects. That's their bread and butter, and they do it as well as anyone. I got turned on to their work with one of my favorite, and one of the best, IMO, B-monster movies, Tremors, and I've seen their names pop up in the special features of dozens of movies since. Really looking forward to what he/they bring to this project.

Holy crap we might be getting guys in rubber suits. Well, probably not entirely. But that Legendary is using practical effects in their next Godzilla movie is a promising sign that this will be good. As long as we see more of Godzilla than in their first movie, I'm happy.

^Highly doubt we'll get any suits. Woodruff's worked with them before, but that does not mean he'll use them. We're probably looking at animatronic puppetry at most--My guess anyway.

This should be very interesting.

I like this a lot. It's better than nothing.

Agreed on the suits, at least not in the traditional sense. Although ADI has utilized people inside alien suits, so there could be a person/persons inside a part of one or all of the monsters in a given scene. Certainly animatronics, as GMan indicated. I’m thinking they will still be predominantly CG characters though.

Really awesome to hear, they could possibly do large animatronics of the monsters like how Jurassic Park has the T-rex animatronic.
