Filmmaker Gareth Edwards burst onto the film scene back in 2010 with his low-budget indie Monsters, a film that came with very little in the way of expectations. Just four years later, his follow-up is a movie centering on one of the most iconic figures in monster-movie lore and expectations are sky-high. My how times change.
Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche and Sally Hawkins, this latest iteration of Godzilla hopes to wash the bad taste left over in audience’s mouths from Roland Emmerich’s take on the titular monster back in 1998. Audiences are chomping at the bit for a quality, big-screen Godzilla adventure and if this latest trailer for Edwards’ film is any indication, we’ll be getting one in a few short months.
Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla hits theaters May 16th. Check out the latest trailer below.
