Right from the beginning of this trailer it’s clear that one thing no city (or insurance company) wants is a Godzilla, as they are not conducive to peaceful living and not having enormous holes smacked through buildings. It may be 60 years since Godzilla first started causing havoc, but in this new big budget Hollywood flick he’s certainly not lost his destructive powers (and Aaron Johnson has lost his hotness either).
Here’s the synopsis: ‘An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
Gareth Edwards directs “Godzilla,” which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” “Inception”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Cosmopolis”), and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck.,” “The Bourne Legacy”) and Bryan Cranston (“Argo,” TV’s “Breaking Bad”).’
The film, which is looking pretty cool, is due out in May.
