Today, Warner Brothers Pictures released a new international trailer for what will arguably be the biggest of summer blockbusters: Godzilla!
For those of you living under a rock for the last 60 years, Godzilla is an amphibious monster who emerges from the depths of the ocean after years of hibernation, only to meet a new world and the awakening of an ancient enemy.
Godzilla is back in the first full-length trailer for the upcoming reboot of the classic Japanese horror-film franchise, which began with the original 1954 movie.
Godzilla stars Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston as scientist Joe Brody and Martha Marcy May Marlene‘s Elizabeth Olsen as his daughter-in-law, Elle Brody. While the film’s teaser trailer gave a first look at the monster, the full-length trailer dives deeper into Godzilla’s harrowing backstory.
The remake from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros., which hits theaters on May 16, is not the Godzilla franchise’s first reboot. A 1998 film pulled in $379 million at the global box office, but was widely panned by critics.
Set in the United States, Godzilla also stars Juliette Binoche, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins.
