Sorry, “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” “Guardians Of The Galaxy,” “Edge Of Tomorrow,” “Transformers: Age Of Extinction,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” and whatever other summer blockbuster is coming around the corner—in terms of crafting genuine excitement, “Godzilla” has you beat. And you don’t need to look any further than this new trailer for Gareth Edwards‘ blockbuster debut.
Running two-and-a-half-minutes long, this new, extended look at the movie is simply hair-raising. For the new take on cinema’s most famous monster, Edwards has put together a movie that looks like it will bring the required spectacle, but underscored with an emotional current and genuine sense of dread and awe. Of course, ads are one thing and the finished product is another (see “Prometheus“), but we have our fingers crossed that Edwards has nailed it.
“Godzilla” stomps the Earth on May 16th.
