Many have had their doubts, including myself, about a reboot of the beloved Japanese monster, but after watching this new teaser trailer, I'm officially excited in seeing this dark take on the ominous monster. Too bad we have to wait until May 16 of 2014 to view the final product.
The foreboding music is a great lead in with the military going in blind into a city under fire from a fire-breathing monster and the destruction is intense along with the mayhem on the characters faces. I'm glad they chose to focus on the character's emotions rather than featuring the destruction left by Godzilla. And what a great lead-in to Godzilla itself. This Godzilla is frightening and that's how it should be. Watch the great preview.
Release Date: May 16, 2014
