The New Godzilla Trailer Has Stomped Online
'It's going to send us back to the Stone Age!'

25 February 2014  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Warner Bros / Legendary Pictures

Get ready for a sense of building dread in the latest Godzilla trailer. This generous snippet sees Bryan Cranston as a man on the verge as he pleads with person or persons unknown to address the scale of the threat that mankind faces. And if the One Who Knocks is worried, the rest of us should really be running for our lives. Check it out below. 

There's a better look here than previously at characters including Cranston's physicist Joe Brody; his son Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Ford's wife (Elizabeth Olsen) and son (Carson Bolde); and scientist Ken Watanabe. You'll also get a brief glimpse of Juliette Binoche as Cranston's wife, and while we don't see her face, we're pretty sure there's some voiceover from Sally Hawkins' scientist.

This trailer also reveals a little more about the locations we expect to be monster-plagued in Gareth Edwards' film, including Hawaii (specifically Oahu), San Francisco (the much-trashed Golden Gate Bridge gets it in the neck again) and Las Vegas (that Statue of Liberty is part of the New York New York casino, so we hope that averts any flashbacks to the 1998 film).

There's a nice nod to the original Toho film in Watanabe's line that "In 1954, we awakened something", since that's the year that the original Godzilla was released. And there's more of that creepy, unnerving choral music that distinguished the teaser, so colour us thoroughly wigged out and watching the sky nervously.

Godzilla hits screens on May 16, and is all over the new issue of Empire, which hits newsagents on Thursday. Check out our subscribers cover here (and hear Godzilla roar) and look out for more from that in the next few days.

markmcclenaghan: exactly! I thought more people would've commented about that! I dunno, it might not be the actual music from 2001, but it certainly bares a deliberate resemblance. This just looks and feels like the greatest film ever made! What a trailer! I'm flabbergasted! Cranston channels Heisenberg in his voiceover, also!

RE: THIS MOVIE WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH TRISTAR'S GARBAGE!!!
L: MrAwesomeness360 "flashbacks to the 1998 film" Uh, no, there won't be any flash backs to that waste of film that everybody wants to forget, there are going to be flashback of 1954 instead, because this movie will be connected to the original 1954 "Gojira" film. Whoever wrote this article needs to either pay more attention or needs to watch the original film before writing the article...with all due respect. y the same token, perhaps you should read the article properly before rant More

The World Ends. Godzilla Begins...
There are other monsters in the film - the toy catalogues refer to them as "Muto's" - one being some kind of multi-limbed spider like creature, the other a flying one (looking vaguely like Rodan in the trailer - queue fan boy melt down). The nods to the 1954 original are nice and show reverence and care, unlike the 1998 abomination. Can't wait! More
