The audio teasers for the movie were released Monday, so it came as a real treat to fans when actual footage of director Gareth Edwards’ coming Godzilla reboot was shared on Tuesday. But for those who were upset that the massive monster’s face wasn’t shown, the creature in its entirety can be checked out on Empire magazine’s cover, the Telegraph wrote.
