    Godzilla returns in toho's new film "ALWAYS 2" during a two minute dream sequence. As you can see in the pictures, this Godzilla is 100% CGI. Looks like TOHO is testing out how well they can pull off a CGI Godzilla.

    Final Wars may have been the last "man in suit" G flick.

    For those curious to what this "Always 2" film is, here is a review (note it is NOT Kaiju related in anyway, besides this dream sequence ;) ):

    I have to admit, I like it. You gotta give Toho credit for sticking with the man in a suit for as long as they did. We've probably seen the best FX work that'll ever be done on that scale but let's face it the realities of the world dictated going CGI.

    It'll be interesting to see if Godzilla 3D will still be made and it that'll be CGI or not.
