Bryan Cranston Faces Terror And Loss In Chilling Godzilla Extended Look
Heads or tails? This extended look at Godzilla offers a little bit of both. And by a little bit, I mean we get just a few seconds of the monster, while the rest of the two and a half minute video focuses on disaster and a pretty brilliant demonstration of Bryan Cranston's acting abilities. And we're filled in a bit on the story.
The video begins with Bryan Cranston working in some kind of facility. The datedness of his attire and the equipment indicate that we're looking at something that happened in the past. Terrifying circumstances ensue when something goes wrong and Cranston's character has to seal off a part of the facility before his wife has time to get out. Here's what total devastation looks like.
Devastation is a relative term, of course, as we later see a horrific tsunami tear through a resort.
Points to the dog for breaking his own leash.
Back to Cranston, he appears to be remorseful over what happened to his wife, and certain that they're "hiding something out there." And he's really mad about it.
Maybe it's Breaking Bad pre-withdrawal, but I may actually be a little bit more excited to see Cranston in something new than I am to see Godzilla start tearing things up. But there is that. The beast makes an appearance in the video near the end, first with a swish of its tail...
And then with a roar...
Warner Bros. describes Godzilla as "a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless."
Directed by Gareth Edwards, Godzilla arrives in theaters May 16. In addition to Cranston, the cast includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins and David Strathairn.
