The official Teaser Trailer for Godzilla has been released! Check it out here:
Watch this quick!
It’s likely going to be taken down quickly. But we thought we’d start a page and try valiantly to keep it updated.
This is a teaser trailer that was featured at Comic-con 2012 for the upcoming film Godzilla directed by Gareth Edwards.
Gareth Edwards directed the low budget, but fascinating Monsters, which told the story of a journalist escorting an American tourist through an area in Mexico infected by an alien invasion which has caused mutations of wild life and plants.
Alot of the charm of Monsters was seeing how the filmmakers tried hinting at the presence of giant monsters invading Mexico without actually showing too much of them. Obviously this was a result of the low budget.
I suspect he won’t be working with a limited budget for this film and he also won’t be hinting at a giant monster.
This is Godzilla after all. The ultimate giant monster.
As for this teaser trailer, there’s a lot going on here. Some images reminiscent of 9/11 and other natural disasters. There’s the evocative 2001: A Space Odyssey sound effect. But the perfect and ominous touch for the trailer is the J. Robert Oppenheimer quote where he describes his feelings after seeing the effects of the Atomic bomb, his creation, after detonation.
Then a brief glimpse of the massive creature followed by the classic Godzilla scream.
It’s going to take alot to get the bad taste of the 1998 american remake version of Godzilla out of our collective mouths. But I think Gareth Edwards is the man to do it.
Godzilla stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche. Ken Watanabe and David Strathairn. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards. Godzilla is scheduled for release May 16, 2014.
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.
