“GODZILLA” Concept Teaser is reminded of Hindu Scripture
The immortal classic GOJIRA saw the King of the Monsters born out of the devastation of atomic attack on Japan. As we greatly anticipate the upcoming iteration from Gareth Edwards and seeming rebirth of the most iconic of movie monsters, the initial, fantastic concept teaser shown at SDCC in 2012 is reminiscent of those roots, recalling theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer’s words about witnessing the first detonation of a nuclear device in 1945.
[UPDATE] Sorry guys, despite the clip being non-leak, strong HD, it seems it’s being taken down everywhere. Will repost if put online properly.
Given those ominous words, with the first of Godzilla’s immense roars preceding “Now I am become death, destroyer of worlds,” and the large scale, sweeping looks at devastation, the GODZILLA trailer certainly feels something grand could be upon us. We sure hope so.
GODZILLA, directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston, opens May 16, 2014.
