Decimated cities, flooded roadways and burning buildings are only just the beginnings of what’s to come in “Godzilla.”

The newly released international trailer features Bryan Cranston, who provides the voiceover throughout the beginning of the teaser, out to prove that “natural disasters” aren’t the cause of what looks like an apocalypse.

“Whatever it is they’re guarding so carefully, I need to be able to prove that it’s real,” he says.

It looks like no one will be spared in this action-packed film, with everyone’s family and friends on the run from the colossal lizard. Viewers can only catch glimpses of the creature — its gargantuan tail whips through a destroyed city and some flares in the dark lighting up a part of his body — but it’s just enough to prove that it will be larger than life.

“Godzilla” hits theaters May 16.
