Gareth Edwards must be loving the strong reaction to what just might be the most amazing trailer of the year. I was waiting all day yesterday to catch the Godzilla trailer, and even though I was expecting it to be amazing, I never dreamed of it being quite as jaw dropping as it was. It was the kind of trailer that makes you hit the repeat button instantly, the kind of trailer that sends shivers up your spine, the kind of trailer that makes you jump around insanely crying out “I have to see this now!”
Warner Brothers have done a tremendous job putting this stunning trailer together, and I can’t stop watching it! Now comes Japanese trailer which has blink and you’ll miss it extra footage (non of Godzilla himself, thankfully) and a new TV spot. I feel Warners have really outdone themselves not to reveal Godzilla properly in the trailer, and I hope they continue to keep the beast hidden until the film is released. So check out the new vids below, its nothing really new, but hell it is still just, just mind blowing!
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.
