For what it's worth (I watched the first few minutes to check the
video was getting the right thing, and will watch it all with the boys
this evening) the CGI footage is not from _WWD_.

Although it will look strangely familiar to lovers of _When Dinosaurs
Roamed America_ ...

Still, who cares?  They -- finally -- have a _T. rex_ fighting a
_Triceratops_.  Which is what it's all about, right?

That would be because of --

        Carpenter, K.  1998.  A dinosaur paleontologist's view of
        Godzilla.  In Lees, J. D. & Cerasini, M. (eds) The Official
        Godzilla Compendium. Random House (New York),
        pp. 102-106. [T4]

And then there is also --

        Christiansen, Per (2000): Godzilla from a zoological
        perspective.  Mathematical Geology 32 (2): 231-245.
