This is without a doubt one of the films I am looking forward to seeing this year. Directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters), this latest take on the iconic Kaiju behemoth, seemingly follows the original storyline of Godzilla as the radioactive result of human endeavor. This is great for several reasons because if you’ve ever watched the 1954 black and white film, then you already know how emotionally impactful that film was in comparison to what came after. This trailer lays it out so beautifully, I’m speechless. Enjoy!

Godzilla stars Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, and David Strathairn. Godzilla opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 16th.

An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
