Extended Godzilla Trailer Hits The Web
Raze the red lanterns

If you’re among those eagerly awaiting the return of Godzilla to our screens via the filmmaking hand of Gareth Edwards, chances are you’ve already seen the trailer. But now Warners has put an extended version online for your viewing use. 

This expanded version of the promo, which had audiences applauding at CinemaCon a couple of weeks ago, ramps up the emotional beats while also allowing for a few more shots of the big guy doing his destructive thing.

Once again we kick off in flashback, with physicist Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) facing a horrific situation that impacts his family. The authorities attempt to spin it as a natural disaster, but Brody suspects the truth and is trying to warn the world before we all get sent – in his words – back to the stone age.

Of course, few people listen and then the roaring, the stomping, the screaming and the running start. We’ll also meet Joe’ s soldier son Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), his wife (Elizabeth Olsen) and their son (Carson Bolde), plus a variety of other characters impacted by the big G including Ken Watanabe’s scientist and Davis Strathairn’s military leader.

With Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Victor Rasuk and Akira Takarada among the cast, Godzilla will menace our cinemas on May 16. For expert insight into the new film from Gareth Edwards, check out our exclusive trailer breakdown. Gamera, meanwhile, has just realised he missed Mother’s Day and is scrambling to arrange flowers and/or time travel so he can get back in his mum’s good graces.

Requires convincing
Of all the actors deserving of a lucrative blockbuster billing, Mr. Cranston would be the go-to guy thanks to Breaking Bad and yeah, Malcolm in the Middle was pretty swish. Additionally, a decent cast (Olsen, Taylor-Johnson, Binoche) and Gareth Edwards a viable directing choice after Monsters. Of course it will be fun, but call me fussy, will it have any more to it than good old populist spectator cinema? The jury's out for now, but fairly optimistic. And yes, 2-D for me please. More

3D is over rated
However, I'm really looking forward to this. More

This trailer has convinced me to go see it on big screen..mightily impressed... Visuals look great.. I'd watch cranston open a paper bag.. I suspect cranston is in more than the beginning... He's the guy trying to tell everyone something bad this way comes whilst also trying to build a relationship with his son.. However 2d for me not 3d.hate 3d with a passion. More

I will probably burn in hell for this but...
And I'm honestly not trying to be negative for here sake of it but I suspect Bryan Cranston is only in the beginning. If this is the case the fact that he, or his voice is in nearly every scen of the trailer might mean they are trying to overcompensate for something by him being a big selling point. Secondly Empires continued presumption that this is going to be great is a gamble, the directors done monsters, yes, but that wasn't as good as most people think it was and its a big leap to a blockb More
