The first trailer for Godzilla starring Bryan Cranston has just been released!

Gojira, the first movie in the Godzilla series, was released in 1954. 2014 will mark the 60 year anniversary for that, and it’s the perfect time to reboot the franchise. The last time the monster was on screen was in 2004 with the release of Godzilla: Final Wars.

Check out the Godzilla trailer below:

“I realize not all of you have had hands on experience,” says an unidentified leader who is speaking to his troops who are tasked with taking down the monster. “Frankly, none of us have ever faced a situation quite like this one before. I would not be asking any one of you to take this leap if I did not have complete faith in your ability to succeed. Your courage will never be more needed than it is today.”

The trailer relies heavily on silence and standard but epic trailer sound effects to emphasize how big of a monster Godzilla is.

This rendition of the Godzilla story boasts an unbelievable cast. Coming off an incredible run as the infamous Walter White on Breaking Bad, this will be Bryan Cranston’s first major role, and we couldn’t be more excited. Cranston makes everything he does better, and having him in a lead role in a franchise we already love couldn’t be more perfect.

Godzilla also stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson who is perhaps most famous for his titular role in the Kick-Ass movies. Also starring is Elizabeth Olsen. Taylor-Johnson and Olsen will of course be teaming up once again as the brother-sister duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: The Age of Ultron.

The film is being produced by Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy) conceptualized the story while Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son) heads up the screenwriting team.

Godzilla will hit theaters on May 16, 2014.

To celebrate today’s trailer release, three images have also been released (via USA Today):

What do you think of the ‘Godzilla’ trailer?

  • PabloRuiz7

    So this looks absolutely amazing

  • Ultron

    Oooo I got chills! I thought this movie would be dumb but now I definitely think I’ll have to see it. Plus I can see how Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will work out!

    • 7Starrchasers

      Hahah I was thinking about that too!!! And such a good job with the trailer!

      • Ultron

        It might be kind of weird for them to go from kissing and stuff to being brother and sister though!

        • HBT

          I feel like I say this all the time but Quick and Scar are just a little bit tooo close for siblings imo. (I’m reading the super old original X Men so maybe they’ve changed since then)

          • Ultron

            Well hopefully they aren’t portrayed that way in the movie o.o

          • 7Starrchasers

            Hahah i’ve always thought that too! But I think that wouldn’t play well on screen so hopefully they’ll be a like a normal pair of siblings….but I guess actors do this all the time!

    What a great trailer! I love the whole suspense of it and the quiet. This movie wasn’t even on my radar, but now I can’t wait to see it.

    • Crystal Disbrow

      Same here, had no idea about it, now I can’t wait to see it.

      When the teaser was released, someone on the Hypable comments recommended ‘Monsters’ (2010) to me. It was a movie made by this director with a teeny tiny budget. Don’t watch it if you want CGI destruction but I really recommend it to anyone who wants a beautiful, interesting character-driven story =)

    This trailer is already better than the last movie that came out around 2000.

    • HBT

      Nostalgia! I do love that song Come With Me from it.

  • shabs

    I was kind if dreading this movie but the trailer changed my mind. Looks pretty promising!

    Loved Monsters, so I’m more than excited to see what Gareth Edwards can do with like 20,000 times the budget.

    With original Godzilla vocals!
