White, blue, red, all iconic colors and respective to different levels of power when it comes to Godzilla's most powerful weapon - his Atomic Breath. It seems, in this month's release of Shin-Gojira or Godzilla: Resurgence for us Westerners, Godzilla's famous iconic Atomic Breath will be given an upgrade along with the King of Monster's overall look. Fans in Japan attending the TOHO Shinjuku Cinema were privilege to an exclusive 30-second promo clip for the film and at the end of the clip, attendees account seeing Godzilla's atomic energy being emitted as purple or violet in color.
To the average reader this isn't Earth shattering news, but for those hard core Godzilla fanatics out there, the drastic change in atomic energy color means a lot. This could essentially prove to be the most powerful atomic breath ever witnessed. What this entails could include some of the most powerful and awesome carnage ever witnessed in a Godzilla movie. We already know Shin-Gojira will be the current largest Godzilla ever to be unleashed on the silver screen - even trumping Legendary's Godzilla from 2014!
Our friends over at Gormaru Island have recalled and summed up attendee accounts:
Several audiences and fans from Japan have taken to social media, all informing the same interesting piece of information-That Shin Godzilla's atomic energy has been reported to be purple(a few others have said violet, but majority state it to be purple).
This specific detail has been seen at the end of the promo. So far this seems to be limited only to TOHO Shinjuku Cinema. The sightings had began since the beginning of July. It's unknown if Shin Godzilla's atomic breath will be permanently purple, or if it's just some sort of state of his Atomic Breath(As in, in fun theory, if his oral weapon is complete or incomplete).
But for now as it stands, reportedly purple is the new blue, at least for Shin Godzilla.
Until we see some new footage ourselves it's difficult to say for sure, but with enough mentions of this sudden alteration of atomic energy color - we're willing to bet this is legitimate.
What do you think of Godzilla's new purple/violet atomic breath? Compared to previous incarnations, how much of an impact do you think this will have on the film's plot and/or Godzilla's overall power? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section!
