We knew yesterday that today would bring the first official trailer for the upcoming Godzilla reboot but what we didn’t know was how epic the trailer was going to be. Maybe it was the really crappy 90s version with Ferris Bueller that ruined our expectations, but our first look at Gareth Edwards’ epic new take on the story has us more excited than we thought possible.
Here’s the trailer we’ve all been waiting for, and it’s totally okay if you find yourself watching three or four times to totally take in it’s awesomeness.
In case you need it after the trailer, here’s Legendary’s official synopsis of Godzilla:
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
We don’t known much else about the movie, other than it boasts an incredible cast headlined by Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston, Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson and newcomer and soon-to-be- Avengers starlet Elizabeth Olsen.
Gareth Edwards has an enormous task ahead of him in getting Godzilla right for an American audience and so far from the looks of the trailer, he’s on the right path to doing exactly that.
