Fans of Japan’s OG massive lizard have a lot to look forward to in 2014. A new reboot for Godzilla is starting to gain some steam among future theatergoers who are ready to see Gareth Edwards take on the franchise. The hype for the film has started to begin in the form of a mysterious new website and two new viral videos.

This new site (M.U.T.O Research) offers anyone who discovers it the chance to dig around and search for any Easter Eggs that clue into what the new Godzilla offers. Among the various images and military codes that are lying around the home page of the site are two viral videos that provide some footage of some soldier’s calling for assistance and a single solider taking an epic leap into the ocean:

With all this new grainy footage and the website that accompanies the in-movie M.U.T.O. Research group lies some well hidden clues on the Godzilla reboot. The final image you’ll see below shows a few M.U.T.O. Research vehicles lying at the site of a huge crater. Could this be the work of that ginormous nuclear mega lizard?

TotalFilm.com who first discovered the above image, offered some background behind what it could possibly mean:

The image shows Turkmenistan’s infamous burning ‘Door to Hell’, which was first ignited by a Soviet gas company in 1971. They claimed the dangerous gases would burn off in a few days — yet miraculously, it has been burning ever since.

Normally accessible to the public, the image is associated with the notes that this remote destination was strangely placed on government lockdown, as the secretive group identified as M.U.T.O. established a heavily-guarded “restricted access area” for undisclosed purposes. This snapshot from a tourist shows emergency vehicles, armed troops and research crews being choppered to the scene.

So now the question remains – what is “M.U.T.O.” and what type of “research” are they really conducting? The upcoming reboot of Godzilla will be tearing theaters apart come May 16, 2014. Let these new images from the film hold you over until the new trailer releases:
