Movie Trailer #2: Godzilla (2014)
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Director(s): Gareth Edwards
Writer(s): Max Borenstein
They tried to kill it in 1954 but the atomic bomb only made it stronger and angrier. Meet Godzilla. With this latest trailer for Warner Bros & Legendary Pictures’ much anticipated movie, it is made clear again (at least from the point of view of humans) that the radioactive dinosaur has come ashore to even the score against humanity. And once again, with the creature getting limited screen time (I actually hope it never gets fully featured in a trailer), the focus is on the plight of humans and our inability to come to a consensus on what Godzilla is and more importantly how to stop it from destroying everything we’ve built. Also missing still is how the other creatures hinted at in the first trailer are involved (baby Godzillas, perhaps?). Watch below in the embedded player to get your science-fiction action/adventure juices flowing.
Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Victor Rasuk, and Ken Watanabe.
The first trailer can be found here: Godzilla Movie Trailer #1.
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.
