This morning marked the release of the first Godzilla trailer we’ve seen since Comic-Con and now that we can see the thing in high definition and not via grainy phone cameras, the film looks even more spectacular than ever before. Gareth Edwards’ film is still months away from release, as the summer 2014 date is looming but not yet rapidly approaching. Still, the first look at the film has fans excited that the 1998 Roland Emmerich version will be erased from our minds.
You can take a look at the new HD trailer here, but some stills have been released that show just how massive Godzilla will be both literally and figuratively.
The film not only includes the very capable Gareth Edwards as director but a cast that includes Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston as well as Kick-Ass and now Avengers 2 star Aaron Johnson.
So far from what we’ve seen out of the Godzilla reboot, the classic movie monster will finally get the modern justice it deserves after the abomination that was the 1998 version starring Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno and Han Azaria among others. While the cast seemed alright for that version, everything else about the movies was botched terribly and as a result it has gone down as one of the most disappointing movies of the last half century.
Edwards and company are looking to reverse Godzilla‘s fortune and so far so spectacularly good.
