Cool new international trailer for Godzilla has lots of new footage

03.18.2014by:

Recently, director Gareth Edwards showed off some footage from GODZILLA at SXSW, which blew the crowd away, promptly continuing the build-up of anticipation for the revamp of the famous Kaiju. While today's new international trailer doesn't give us the full reveal we're all waiting for, it's got a ton of new footage to help whet your appetite, while still driving you a little mad with anxiety over waiting to see the hulking lizard in all his glory. It's a great marketing move by Warner Bros. and Legendary, as it keeps us insanely interested without ever letting the cat (lizard) out of the bag completely.

Take a look:

Reactions from the footage shown at SXSW and the overall look and feel of the film has left most people feeling more than optimistic about the new adpatation, as Edwards has displayed a keen eye in bringing this bad boy to life. With last year's PACIFIC RIM in the can, GODZILLA this year, and JURASSIC WORLD next year, it appears that the monster movie genre is alive and well, which is a win for all of us if they keep churning them out like this.

GODZILLA smashes into theaters on May 16, 2014.

Cranston is seriously bringing it here. His fear, his plight, I feel it man.

The only complaint I have

Is the CGI, which looks hit or miss in that trailer. Other than that, can't wait

CANT FREAKIN WAIT

I am trying to contain my excitement and lower my expectations before May 16 (just so they don't go through the roof), but WB keeps giving us these ridiculous trailers. This just looks crazy. This is #1 on my most anticipated list for the year. On a side note, I hadn't seen Monsters so I watched it the other day on Netflix just to see what Gareth Edwards can do, and I was totally not expecting it to be as good as it was. Great movie, especially as low-budget as it was. I can't wait to see

I really like the weight they're giving the subject material, and it doesn't feel like a forced "DARK AND GRITTY!" take on it. There seems to be a gravity and a consequence to the havoc and Cranston does seem like the ideal actor to lead the audience in to it as he's caught in the middle of everything. Cannot wait.

I think Cranston and Watanabe are the keys to this. They appear to have solid dialogue and be bringing it like they think it'll win them an Oscar. There simply has never been a "monster movie" with great acting, but so far this appears to be the exception. Then you add to it exceptional CGI and a film that manages to tweak the backstory to give us something slightly new, and you have the ingredients for something really special.

Totally agree Des, I think the tone they're aiming for and the delivery Cranston and Watanabe give in the trailer indicates that just the right balance has been struck. As far as monster movies with good acting go, I'd say Jaws counts. There really should be creature features that play more like Jaws or Jurassic Park, as it seems every creature feature has to be a schlocky affair. Yes, monster movies do have their roots in B-picture fare, but to see a well-acted, well made, impactful, enjoyable

Well, the original film in 1958 was dark and gritty, especially the original Japanese version. I'd say they are really going back to form here. ;)

ok meatbat get it right you troll dipstick

Godzilla in this movie isn"t created by nukes, they used nukes to try and kill him decades ago according to this movies time line, that didn't work out, they did for awhile manage to contain him and several other mega critters called mutors but as you can see in the trailer all hell breaks lose, things get even worse in sequel as Edwards has said the next one will be ala destroy all monsters epic! In this flic Godzilla is assumed to be the last of an ancient mega amphibian species not a recent

In this flic Godzilla is assumed to be the last of an ancient mega amphibian species not a recent mutation like the 98 farce. the flying thing is a insect with long hooked front arms so kinda a gigan/mothra amalgamation by way of megaguirus.

Looks really good.

I think what I really like about this is the scale of the thing, definitely down to Gareth Edwards Direction and a positive use of CGI.

No, it's not Rodan. It's a brand new monster that has several of it's species in this film. Some are ground based (smaller, appearing to be spider or scorpion-like), some are airborne.

I just do not understand what all the hype is about. This is basically a remake of Godzilla 1998. Bryan Crantson replaces Broderick. Ken Watanbe replaces Jean Reno. Our Nukes created Godzilla etc. Godzilla shows up and fucks shit up, we send in our army. Godzilla fucks up our army for about 90% of movie until they eventually kill him in the end. The new "Godzilla" director intelligently chose to use the original looking Godzilla which has made everyone think this is a masterpiece. I'm not here

I'm not here just to sling hate, Just here telling how I observed each and every trailer and fans reactions. I really do want to like this. If I am missing something. Please inform me.

I don't see anything that looks like the 1998 film, like at all. This feels more like a continuation of the 1958 film if anything. You're obviously not a Godzilla fan otherwise you'd see things from the other 27 films in this one.

Hmmm, so you don't know what the hype is about, but you literally have EVERY plot point of this film wrong.

Here's a thought.....learn about the actual film, then decide if you think it'll be worthwhile.

Winged creature

That flying creature looks a lot like Mothra. Could it be?

I don't get why everyone wants a retread of Toho monsters. Mothra is TERRIBLE at fighting Godzilla. He literally has no ability to do anything but fly around and wave his wings really fast. Rodan is slightly worse than Mothra. Neither monster would be cool to watch in a fight, since if they ever touch the ground, they literally have no offensive or defensive capabilities.

Cranston had me sold from jump

Not usually into big disaster flicks but I was interested because of Cranston...now I just want to see this because it's going to be a blast. I like how it seems to be grounded in reality and I think there will be a real sense of danger for characters that are fleshed out. If I'm emotionally invested in the characters and on the edge of my seat worrying if they live or die then I can really get into this kind of flick. Godzilla needs to tread carefully!
