There's nothing quite like a new Godzilla movie. At least that's what Warner Bros. would have you thinking when you experience the first full-length Gozilla trailer released outside the confines of a limited-access comic convention. What you'll see here is a story you've heard before - a giant monster attacks a city - but as it is with any top-shelf monster movie in our modern world as such, this one is bigger, more realistic, and more terrifying than any that've come before it.
What you're going to see in this trailer isn't necessarily safe for children. You're not going to be bringing your 5-year-old to see this Godzilla movie. This isn't the year 1998. Instead what WB wants you to suppose here is a scarier version of the monster that, by all means, was supposed to be scary in the first place.
What you'll be treated to first is a bunch of troops getting read to jump out of a plane to defeat the monster. If you'd not have known the title of the movie beforehand, this intro could very well have surprised you with its content. As it stands, this movie will be well prepared to suck in the massive amounts of Godzilla fans the world is already stocked with.
On that note - there's never going to be an end to Gozilla movies. This monster has stuck around for generations of filmgoers, and continues to spawn remakes and - in this case - reboots for massive profits. Even the 1998 USA-based Godzilla was a hit by today's standards. Critical review be trounced - this version will be a hit as well.
Staring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, and Elizabeth Olsen, this iteration of Godzilla will be released for the first time on May 16th. Prepare to be freaked out - at least moderately.
