You only need to get into about 30 seconds of this new Godzilla trailer to realize that it’s already better than the Matthew Broderick version.
Once again the big guy with the distinct growl and nuclear upbringing gets to wreak havoc on the planet. We get a decent look at the 2014 version and he looks quite fearsome. Also, it seems Heisenberg (Bryan Cranston) will be tasked with trying to save humanity.
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
Gareth Edwards directs “Godzilla,” which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” “Inception”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Cosmopolis”), and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck.,” “The Bourne Legacy”) and Bryan Cranston (“Argo,” TV’s “Breaking Bad”).
Godzilla will be in theaters May 16. That’s not soon enough. Watch the full trailer below. Check out some film stills on the flip.
