The must see second trailer for the hotly-anticipated “Godzilla” has arrived. As previously teased and debated by geeks in blogs since the announcement of the Gareth Edwards directed monster flick, there might be more than one monster destroying the city!
For those of you who missed the teasers posted yesterday February 25, the full second trailer also features Bryan Cranston’s dialogue while the footage of a destroyed city is displayed:
“You’re not fooling anybody when you say that what happened was a natural disaster,” “You’re lying! You’re hiding something out there! It was not an earthquake, it wasn’t a typhoon. This is what caused everything in the first place. Don’t you see that! And it is going to send us back to the stone age. You have no idea what’s coming!”
The two and a half minute clip offers glimpses at the monsters with partially visible shots for the first time. The body count runs high in this trailer as we are shown how the beast destroys fighter jets and demolishes buildings. The new clip also offers the back-story of the titular monster with Ken Watanabe explaining how the creature was awakened in 1954.
“An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence”
Cranston and Watanabe are supported by Aaron Johnson who portrays his on-screen son Ford, and Elizabeth Olsen is Ford’s wife. They are also joined by Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins and David Strathairn. The monster flick is set to be released on May 16.
Speaking with io9.com back in July last year, Edwards teased the idea of multiple monsters:
“I’d like to see a Godzilla movie where there are other creatures. And I’m the director of the film, so make of that what you will.”
