New International Godzilla Trailer
Resistance is futile

There are those of you out there keen to see as little of Godzilla as possible in the run-up to release, particularly in the case of the monster himself (even Empire's awesome cover was accused by some of being a spoiler). That being the case, think carefully about whether you want to watch this latest trailer. Where previous promos have been all about building the dread and keeping the threat as offscreen as possible, this one's all-out war, with new footage offering glimpses of what look like significant action sequences. It only lasts a minute and a half, but still, we warned ya.

And we saw the wild beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war...

So yes. Nothing there to disabuse us of the notion that this is going to be the event movie of the year. Although dare we mischievously point out that Godzilla doesn't seem to have damaged the Statue of Liberty quite as badly as the Cloverfield beast did? And this one's the much smaller replica in Vegas!

Monsters' Gareth Edwards, like you need telling, is the director, with a cast including Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and David Strathairn. Godzilla rises up from the depths, many stories high, his head in the sky, on May 16.

THAT WAS DA SHIT!!!!
Roll on May 15th! The inevitable sequel should see Godzilla (course he'll survive!) take on mommy-Cloverfield! It's well documented that the creature in Cloverfield was just a baby looking for its mother... The 2014 Godzilla taking on that creature would be incredible popcorn. More
