Just on the horizon, the release of Godzilla reboot is rapidly approaching and just to keep us on edge as we wait for its release comes more footage from the movie to keep us biting our nails!
We watched in horror as we were teased parts of the monster and its sheer size and the destruction it was capable of, we got to know some of the characters in more detail but now, we get to see Godzilla in full, getting ready for battle. This battle also signals a complete twist to our expectations of the film’s plot.
We were expecting a typical “humanity vs monster” situation when we learned the government were covering up strange happenings across the globe as “natural disasters”. Joe Brody (played by Bryan Cranston) was suspicious about this and urged the authorities to tell everyone what was really going on. What we weren’t expecting was that there is another underlying issue teased in this new trailer.
In the 48-second clip, we see a doctor and a military official of some sort discussing whether to let Godzilla fight what appears to be giant, pterodactyl-like winged creatures that are apparently terrorizing the world, also. Godzilla, who is referred to as “the alpha predator” in the clip, is seen rising to it’s feet in the middle of New York City as the threatening sky creatures approach.
This suggests that there is a lot more to this film than we first thought! Instead of making a crappy sequel where Godzilla returns to face some other monster, it appears that that whole situation will be dealt with in this movie! Not only will humanity have to try and survive the arrival of the skyscrapingly tall Godzilla, but they will also have to deal with something just as dangerous. Or will they?
All of these questions will be answered as Godzilla hits UK cinemas on May 15 and US cinemas May 16. The movie will also star the likes of David Strathairn, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins and was directed by Gareth Edwards.
