Japanese fans of Godzilla say the newly unveiled monster, set to star in a Hollywood reboot of the postwar classic, is too fat and has been "super-sized" by a country used to large portions. The latest version of the giant beast will hit 3-D screens in the United States on May 16 and in Japan two months later, in the year the huge Japanese lizard marks its 60th anniversary. Abe said the 1998 Hollywood version was more "like a fast-moving dinosaur" instead of a big-footed monster.However the new version was more promising, said Abe. Godzilla dates back to 1954's "Godzilla, King of the Monsters," the first of a series of groundbreaking monster flicks made by Tokyo's Toho studios.
