The Official “GODZILLA” Trailer is HereMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
While its teaser was an evocative, mood-setting piece of work, the official trailer for the highly anticipated return of GODZILLA is a meatier thing featuring more from the ensemble cast, an even grander sense of scale and another brief look at the monster itself.
“In 1954, we awakened something,” says Ken Watanabe, revealing a sense of history and the context of nuclear threat imbued within Gareth Edwards’ new vision of Godzilla. From there, it’s an atmospheric and explosive look at the kind of damage caused by Godzilla (cities destroyed, tidal waves, planes dropping from the sky) and by trying to stop Godzilla. That’s not to mention a serious set of bones, as well as an illuminating close-up of the creatures’s skin/texture.
GODZILLA 2014 is officially described as a film that pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer for a look at any of the other towering monsters at hand.
Juliette Binoche, Bryan Cranston, Sally Hawkins, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairin, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Ken Watanabe star. GODZILLA is out May 16th.
