‘Godzilla’ Trailer: God Help Us All!
Subscribe to 96.1 The Eagle on
We’ve seen tantalizing glimpses of ‘Godzilla‘ in the previous two teaser trailers, but with the new film set to hit theaters in just over two months, it’s time for a full ‘Godzilla’ trailer and a really good look at the big lizard. That time is now as a new ‘Godzilla’ trailer has arrived that finally shows us the King of the Monsters in all his massive glory.
As heard in the audio teaser from yesterday, the trailer is scored with the voiceover of Bryan Cranston delivering a panicked and urgent message about what’s coming. It’s not an earthquake or typhoon or whatever – it’s Godzilla, people!
The second half of the trailer is a voiceover from Ken Watanabe talking about how in 1954, they awakened something. (Not so coincidentally, 1954 is when ‘Gojira’ was released in Japan.) And the nuclear tests in the Pacific Ocean weren’t actually tests, but they were actually attempts to kill Godzilla. Yeah, that didn’t work out so well.
We do get to see a brief glimpse of one of the other monsters in the movie:
(Is that you, Gigan?)
(And, you Rodan?)
And, at the end, our first full look at Godzilla as he unleashes his roar.
What’s slightly weird is that the poster showed us that Godzilla is almost double the size of the tallest building in San Francisco, so why does he look relatively shrimpy in between these two buildings above?
Starring Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Sally Hawkins, Juliette Binoche and David Strathairn, the official plot synopsis describes ‘Godzilla’ as such:
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.
‘Godzilla’ opens in theaters on May 16, 2014.
