A while ago I wrote how much I was looking forward to the new Godzilla film, after having seen the teaser trailer.
Now Warner Bros. has released the first full official trailer, which still does the clever thing of showing only glimpses of the monster.
Ken Watanabe fills us in on the back-story: the Pacific nuclear tests of the 1950’s were really efforts to kill the giant lizard. Bryan Cranston is the scientist nobody believes, the only character who knows what’s really going on. “You’re hiding something out there … and it’s going to send us back to the Stone Age!”
It looks like Manhattan is going to get smashed up a lot, and the trailer promises yet another iconic movie shot of a destroyed Statue of Liberty Surely this lady has taken enough abuse, from Planet of the Apes to Cloverfield.
Godzilla smashes into cinemas in May.
