By now you should know that the teaser trailer for Gareth Edwards’ highly anticipated Godzilla arrives tomorrow, or in just a few hours to be exact. Now, while we wait, impatiently and full of excitement, thankfully we have three images to show you from the film, and thankfully these are all official!
The three images have been revealed by USA Today, and while the first two show just mere pathetic humans (Bryan Cranston & Aaron Taylor-Johnson), the final image shows the monster itself, Godzilla! This is the first proper look at the beast, and I reckon we won’t be seeing much more in tomorrows teaser trailer. So enjoy dear readers, enjoy!
Per USA Today:
In addition to the original movie, the Monsterland conceit of the 1968 Godzilla flick Destroy All Monsters also plays into (Gareth) Edwards’ film, with its exploration of mankind having to deal with a reality full of huge, deadly behemoths — the director teases that there is more than just Godzilla smashing around.
“I’ve just got a secret fantasy — well, it’s not very secret anymore — about living in a world where there’s fantastical things like giant creatures and what it would really be like and trying to take it seriously,” he says.
“And there’s no bigger or better icon than Godzilla.”
Gareth Edwards is directing the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont and Dave Callaham. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing with Mary Parent and Brian Rogers. Alex Garcia and Patricia Whitcher are serving as executive producers alongside Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, and Juliette Binoche are starring in the film, with David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston.
Slated to open on May 16, 2014, the film will be presented in 3D.
