New trailer for Godzilla teases an epic-scale monster movie!

Feb. 25, 2014by: Paul Shirey

The GODZILLA trailer you've been waiting for is here!

Well, at least a kickass GODZILLA trailer at that. If you're hoping for a full reveal, well, you'll still have to hold out as Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are holding the giant lizard close to the chest, but we still get to see more than we have so far. The scale and size of the film looks beyond epic with a sense of dread and destruction to match the hype of what is one of the most anticipated flicks of 2014.

Check it out:

Here's the synopsis:

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.

I love what director Gareth Edwards has done here. For all the complaints about doing GODZILLA justice, I feel like this is the one to finally nail it. It's still early on and I love that they aren't giving it all away. It's a satisfying show, for sure, but I'm left hungry for more. That's the way you do it.

GODZILLA, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, Juliette Binoche, and Ken Watanabe stomps into theaters on May 16, 2014.

I keep forgetting that Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe are in this! Godzilla looks incredible from what we can see, but the human cast looks good as well. I have high hopes for this!

The last shot of that trailer looks so great. And this movie doesn't appear campy at all. It captures the sheer panic and fear like no other big monster movie.

A couple of quick peeks at the other monster(s).....

Looks really amazing! I love the way the planes are just falling out of the sky. I thought they were going to go with the premise that we thought Godzilla was dangerous for us until we got a look at the others (then he'd actually save us by being more bad-assed), but this looks a little more like uncontrolled chaos with us in the middle.

And Cranston's line about sending us back to the stone age was really cool! That's what is needed....a sense of real danger.

Looks great. They proved to me they did not fuck up the design of Godzilla which is something they needed to show. I will be there at the opening.

Sign me the f*ck up! This looks phenomenal for a summer blockbuster! I really hope Godzilla can make a little more money than Pacific Rim, because that was an awesome movie that underperformed at the box office. I think Pacific Rim only made 400 million at the worldwide box office, I hope Godzilla can make over 500 (if it's good).

Built-in box office? Godzilla 98 flopped hard, as did the few previous Godzilla movies. Clearly it's a name brand, but it still needs to be a quality film with great word of mouth to really connect with domestic audiences, I'd say. And everything we've seen so far indicates real quality and things are looking awesome, so here's hoping.

Nice try Gyro, but no.....as bad as it was, Godzilla 98 didn't "flop hard." In fact, it was an overwhelming success at the box office. It had a budget of $130 million and made $379 million.

Des, "flopped hard" might have been too strong a statement. But it certainly underperformed big time, especially domestically. It was supposed to be the movie of the year and it grossed a paltry $130 million domestic. It was FAR from an overwhelming financial success, but thanks for the chuckle.

Godzilla is our friend... At least I hope so and so does my little boy. He was most pissed off when then killed him at the end of Emmerich's foul up!

Amazing trailer! I'm definitively going to see this one in the theaters.

PS: by the way, why don't you guys upload the videos to YouTube on 1080p as well? I always have to go and search other channels for the Full HD version of the trailers.

Best trailer of 2014 Award here we come.
Regardless the sheer panic in Bryan Cranston's face is incredible. I love that break in his voice near the beginning. There's an actor that can do menace and fear with equal badassness.

did the CGI not look finished?

in certain shots like the Statue of liberty and other shots of city wide destruction?
I mean I'm definitely not saying the trailer looks bad because it TOTALLY doesn't but some of the FX looked unfinished to me.
I cross my fingers this is GREAT (not good and NOT just "better than the 1998 one")
"History shows again and again, that nature points out... the ARROGANCE OF MEN.... GO GO GODZILLA!!!"

I'm inclined to agree with you here. There are still several months to release; noticed similarly unfinished CGI in the Transformers Age of Extinction teaser.

Looks good

The trailer makes it seem like they took some queu's from Cloverfield, but thats not necessarily a bad thing. And Bryan Cranston looks like he is flexing his acting chops here big time.

Statue of Liberty

FYI - there's the Vegas replica, but there is also a large-scale replica in Tokyo Bay. Establishing shots before also look like Tokyo. Might not be Tokyo, but definitely not Lady Liberty Not New York.

Okay, that could make sense. I thought it would have to be by the ocean, but if the government creates (or makes stronger) monsters who challenge Godzilla and they are in the desert, I could see him going to where they are.

Well . . . the Statue in Vegas has a huge casino directly behind it, you wouldn't be able to see a faraway skyline on the horizon. But this shot has mountains. Weird.

It looks like there's the Golden Gate bridge in the trailer. IS Godzilla crushing San Francisco or Oakland? What is the skyline there? This is obviously not the real lady liberty statue. Cloverfield already got that one.

Oops you guys are right, wasnt paying attention to the background when I first saw the trailer, funny thing since I live in Vegas. It looks big for the Vegas version though. And the the direction its facing is off too, probably why I didnt notice at first. Oh well I admit my mistake.

They said a big part of the movie would take place in San Francisco. They need an ocean city for him to arrive at, but I have the feeling that the government created (or enhanced) monsters he fights will live in the desert, meaning it would be possible he'd head toward Vegas......I suppose......

I'm neutral on this for now because Roland Emmerich's Godzilla looked awesome from the trailers, but it was the usual Roland Emmerich movie...crap. So I don't want to give this a thumbs up until I see it.

He's fighting some spider like creature in this film. I'm pretty sure the origin story will be breezed over just for the sake of establishing what kind of continuity we're dealing with here.

The point of the origin story is that they knew about his existence and are trying to find ways to destroy him. In the process they create things even more dangerous to us, and he's the only way to stop them.
