“You are not fooling anybody when you say that what happened was a natural disaster. It was not an earthquake, it was not a typhoon, because what’s really happening is your hiding something out there!”
I’m sold. Bryan Cranston’s voice-over and the beast’s slow rise from the water just bought my IMAX ticket come May. Only an IMAX screen could present the massive-scale of what this new Godzilla is aiming for.
Roland Emmerich’s 1998 take on Godzilla left many fans of the original angry, but after the release of the teaser trailer that stoked Comic-Con and a cast headlined by Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, I think it’s safe to say that Gareth Edwards (the director of Monsters) will make Emmerich’s stab at the radioactive monster nothing more than a distant memory.
The film also stars David Strathairn, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins and Ken Watanabe.
Godzilla hits theaters and IMAX May 16th.
