What might be the most unexpected but cool thing revealed in this trailer is that this new film might actually be serving as a sequel to the original 1954 film. I was under the assumption that this was a reboot to help wash away the stench of the 1998 crapfest that starred Matthew Broderick, but I like that there appears to be some direct correlation between the original film and this one.
I think Godzilla looks pretty great and I’m really excited to see what director Gareth Evans does with the material. From what I see in this new trailer, I’m pretty optimistic that we’re in store for something big and awesome. The cast looks great, Godzilla himself looks superb and the visuals look fantastic. I’m very much looking forward to seeing Godzilla towering over everyone when he invades theaters on May 16.
What are your thoughts on the new trailer? Do you think Godzilla is going to be a crowd pleaser?
