Watch Godzilla Destroy Our Planet In Thrilling New Trailer
The carnage. The chaos. The terror. That signature roar. It can only mean that Godzilla has returned, and that Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures has teed up another full trailer, this one crammed with action. Watch it here, now:
Amazingly, this full trailer still gets away with showing us precious little of the title monster. We get one great shot of him near the end of the clip. But Godzilla director Gareth Edwards spends more time showing us the aftermath that is caused by the creature's sheer size... and that, alone, is enough to send chills down our spines. Look at the way fighter jets crumble off his body, or the way fiery flares pale next to his towering frame. Humans are warned that they have no idea what to expect when this monster crawls from the depths of the ocean. We are about to find out.
This new clip follows what has been a busy week for the King of Monsters. Godzilla would be. Military members paratrooped down ON to Godzilla in an early poster for Gareth Edwards’ upcoming reboot. And Empire followed that up with a vintage, almost-Japanese-styled image from the cover of its latest magazine. Share in that shot below:
Of course, the early trailer for Godzilla was all about setting a mood. There’s an ominous tone of terror to this first clip, one that easily sells the scares Edwards has planned.
The Godzilla reboot will be in theaters on May 16. It has a spectacular cast, ranging from up-and-comers like Aaron Taylor Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, to grizzled veterans like Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn and Juliette Binoche… who, officially, would be the last person I’d expect to one day appear in a Godzilla movie. I’m taking it as a sign that Edwards has some truly special material in play here. We’ll find out when the summer blockbuster season rolls around.
