Over the past few months Legendary Studios has been releasing more tantalizing glimpses of 'Godzilla' in various trailers. And now two new trailer have emerged that show even more of what's in store for audiences on May 16, 2014.
On April 6, 2014 Variety.com leaked the trailer entitled 'First Look.'
In it, we see just why Bryan Cranston's character is so invested in finding the titanic lizard, as it cost him someone dear.
Other shots include Godzilla attacking the Golden Gate bridge, swinging his massive tail over lantern lights in Chinatown (a particularly gorgeous shot), and more scenes showing just how much carnage the beast is capable of.
In another clip entitled 'Courage' (released April 4, via Cinema Blend) we see more sequences involving Aaron Taylor Johnson, who plays Cranston's son, and serves in a military capacity. And we get a few more shots showing just how massive and threatening this interpretation of Godzilla truly is.
'Godzilla' is a movie that is as beautiful as it is terrifying. It looks like it might be the most frightening giant monster movie ever made, and the chaos in store is more traumatizing than any 'kaiju' movie like it before.
Director Gareth Edwards proved he had a knack for mixing human interest story with giant creature carnage in the wonderful 2010 film 'Monsters', and seems uniquely qualified to elevate the genre even further here.
So take a look at the clips and tell us if you're as excited as we are.
Godzilla opens nationwide on May 16, 2014.
