As promised earlier, the official trailer for the 2014 release of Godzilla was released less than an hour ago. The trailer itself is a wild ride and leaves you wanting more.
Though only brief images of the monster itself is seen in this trailer, the mass destruction and sounds affects say it all, accompanied by dramatic shots of the film’s stars.
The opening shot of the trailer shows an unidentified leader (David Strathairn) speaking to his troops whose job it is to take down the monster.
“I realize not all of you have had hands on experience,” he says. “Frankly, none of us have ever faced a situation quite like this one before. I would not be asking any one of you to take this leap if I did not have complete faith in your ability to succeed. Your courage will never be more needed than it is today.”
The film boasts an unbelievable cast, according to Hypable. Bryan Cranston, recently coming off of the hit series “Breaking Bad” makes everything better and having him in a lead role of a loved franchise is near perfect.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson is also part of the star-studded cast, an actor who is mostly known for his role in the Kick-Ass movies, as well as Elizabeth Olsen, who will be pairing up with Aaron in the upcoming “Avengers: The Age of Ultron.”
Other highly notable cast members include Juliette Binoche, of “Chocolat” fame, and Ken Watanabe from “Batman Begins” and “Inception.”
The film is being produced by Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros and is set for release on May 16, 2014.
In 1954, Gojira, the first movie in the Godzilla series, was released. 2014 will be the 60 year anniversary, making it a perfect time for the reboot.
