Trailer Park Tuesdays - Godzilla
This week Trailer Park Tuesdays goes BIG.
As in, Big G.
Usually I like to share and spread the word about lesser known movies that will see upcoming release. Well, not today, as today's trailer is for a BIG blockbuster-type movie that'll be out next year (May 16th, to be exact), one that I'm sure doesn't need any additional hype from me and will most likely land on almost everybody's radar (even if you don't see it, you'll still be aware of it, but seriously, after watching this trailer, how could you not want to see this?).
This is the teaser trailer for Godzilla and it premiered today on the interwebs and will be attached to this weekend's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. After this summer's Pacific Rim (which did pretty good business and, more importantly, I really liked), hopefully America is ready to embrace the kaiju that started it all. Just go ahead and forget about the cinematic trashfire that was Godzilla '98; this will be nothing like that. Go ahead, take a look:
Damn. That looks good.
Despite being over 2 minutes long, this is still a teaser trailer, doing what a good teaser does, doling out just enough information to entice while still remaining vague on most fronts. I like it.
I also really like the somber tone. Seems appropriate for a giant-lizard-stomping-the-shit-out-of-a-city movie. Also, that music in the trailer? It's from 2001: A Space Odyssey. [perfect]
Godzilla stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron-Taylor Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, and a whole bunch of running, screaming people. The Big G hits theaters May 16th. I'll be there.
