First ‘Godzilla’ Trailer Is Everything You Hoped For And Then Some


The excitement for the upcoming rebirth of Godzilla on the big screen has built from a whimper, to a deafening roar in what feels like six months or less. As soon as the teaser poster began to make its way online people began to realize this new breed of monster was going to be a distant departure from the creature that chased Matthew Broderick through Manhattan in the late 90s. No, Godzilla has been fully reimagined, and this time he looks more badass than ever before.

It’s still far too early to tell just how good Godzilla will turn out to be, but so far Gareth Edwards and crew have done a fine job of placing our butts at the edge of our seats. The tone and look of this film is exactly what the realm of monster films has been needing, and as long as the full feature makes good on the promises made in this clip I think it’s safe to say Legendary Pictures has another massive success on their hands. Comment below and let us know if you agree.

Directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters), the updated version of Godzilla will begin its path of destruction in summer 2014. Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, Yuki Morita, and C.J. Adams round out the cast. You can view the trailer below.

Godzilla hits theaters May 16.

    Honestly i think this will be a hit.It looks great already. A very underrated cast led by Johnson and Cranston should make this more than just a monster movie.
