Godzilla: first teaser trailer now taken down
Update: the trailer has now gone....
SORRY: looks like the trailer has now been taken down.
Update: according to Bleeding Cool, this is the proof-of-concept trailer first shown at Comic Con two years ago.
Just when you thought it was safe to pack up on a Friday and nip down the pub for a cheeky pint, along comes the first trailer for Gareth Edwards' Godzilla. And believe us when we say: we don't mind postponing that Friday evening pint at all for this.
Cut to the ominous sound of J Robert Oppenheimer's "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds" quote from the Bhagavad Gita - uttered in horror at the destructive power of the nuclear bomb - the trailer provides a stunning look at the film's tone and scale, and also our first clear look at what Godzilla looks like. And we really like what we see and hear so far. He may not be a man in a suit anymore, but he's definitely akin to the Gojira we loved from the original Japanese movies.
Godzilla's out in the summer of 2014. Until then, enjoy the fabulous first trailer.
