I didn't see a previous forum topic anywhere on this, and I used the search but...it never seems to work.
Anyways, the trailer from Comic-Con popped up on the YouTubes, but copyright claims have taken them down left and right. However, someone has it uploaded onto Vimeo, so check it out while it's still available!
What do you guys think? As someone who grew up loving Godzilla movies (to the point that I had an unhealthy obsession with Kaiju films as well as Kaiju toys as an adolescent), I don't know how to feel about this trailer.
On the one hand, it's cool to see someone bringing it back to the tone of the original Gojira, trying to take the material as seriously as possible.
On the other hand, that's not the majority of Godzilla that I know. Part of the reason we love Godzilla is because he gets to wreck the shit out of things, and eventually, Kaiju movies featuring Godzilla became more about these ultimate power matches against other creatures. It's one of the things that my inner child wants to see on-screen. However, how does one take pure bliss in the destruction on-screen when...ya know, there's a massive amount of dead people laying around like they are in this trailer?
It's a bit of a conundrum for my brain. Nonetheless, the film is directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters) and stars Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass). It comes out in seven months.
