A single computer would have taken 450 years to create ‘Godzilla’, say filmmakers

NEW DELHI: Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, the newest iteration of the famed movie monster, is the tallest version to ever grace the screen coming in at 355 feet with a tail that spans 550 feet.

It took 50,000 polygons to create the 3D model of thrashing purveyor of doom, which should explain the incredible amount of data that he is made of: it would take a single computer 445 years to render the monster.

That means that one computer would have had to start work in 1569 to complete the film in time for its release.

The film has several other impressive statistics that bode well for the upcoming film’s visual effects.

According to The Creators Project, the $160-million blockbuster had 762 visual effects crewmembers working on its 960 shots. Four of those CGI artists were specifically tasked with creating Godzilla’s scales, and it took them six months to do so.

The filmmakers were also keen on making Godzilla’s bark as big as his bite. His roar was recorded through a speaker array blasting 100,000 watts of sound in order to make it feel more real. The sound reverberates over three miles.

The film stars Bryan Cranston in his first leading gig since Breaking Bad’s finale.

The Movie Bit has made a video compiling all the statistics from both the production of the feature, as well as the nitty-gritty measurements of what this monster would look like if it were actually real.

Godzilla may only have 60 teeth, but each canine is about 4-feet-long and 2-feet wide—about the size of a thin (and Hattori Hanzo-sharp) boogie board. It would take 90,000 tons of water to fill the monster to its brim.

The Monster's Stats: 

Height: 355ft (108.2m) Godzilla’s towering height in the 2014 film—the tallest onscreen incarnation ever

Tail: 550ft 4in (167.74m) Total length of Godzilla’s spiked tail

Volume: 89,724 m3 Godzilla’s total volume in the 2014 film

Volume: 90,000 tons Godzilla’s volume if filled with water

Teeth: 1.73ft (53cm) Depth of Godzilla’s canine teeth at their widest point

Teeth: 3.51ft (1.07m)  Length from the root to the tips of Godzilla’s canine teeth

Teeth: 60 Teeth in Godzilla’s mouth

Roar: 3 miles (4.83km) Approximate distance Godzilla’s roar reverberates. (100,000W Power of the 12-foot-high, 18-foot-wide speaker array from which the sound designers blasted Godzilla’s roar to record the sound in a “real world” context)

Feet: 58ft (17.66m) Total width of Godzilla’s feet across the widest point

Feet: 60ft (18.18m) Length of Godzilla’s footprint from toe to heel

Fins: 89 Dorsal fins spiking down Godzilla’s back from his head to the tip of his tail

Previous releases continue to rule box office as new releases fail

This has been another week of disappointments. Two new releases in Ajay Devgn starrer Baadshaho and Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh mangal Saavdhan, have failed to meet the expectations. Though the films opened with poor response, both got the advantage of Saturday being a Bakra Eid holiday.
