Watch: New ‘Godzilla’ Extended Look Highlights Destruction and Emotion

In a summer full of potential blockbusters, including “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” Gareth Edwards’ “Godzilla” reboot has managed to roar into attention — and continues to with the new trailer that clocks in at two and a half minutes.

“What’s really happening is that you’re hiding something out there,” yells Bryan Cranston’s Joe Brody character. “And I have a right to know!”

The new extended look highlights the action and destruction, tsunami and all, while also showing the emotional component, revealing why Cranston’s character was so angry in the clips released before. In the trailer, he becomes separated from his wife in a nuclear power plant disaster.

Of course, there’s also a quick look at the iconic monster. “Godzilla” hits theaters May 16 and also stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Juliette Binoche, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watana be and Sally Hawkins.

    I pretty much ended my lifelong affair with giant monster movies after catching the murky PACIFIC RIM…but the last few GODZILLA trailers I’ve downloaded (included this new one) have whetted my curiosity, Matthew Broderick is nowhere to be seen – a good sign.

      I agree. This one looks better because they went down a darker road with it. Godzilla is better darker. Meaner. Not as a Disney film! The casting in this is better too. Cranston is great. Can’t wait to see this version.

    It just isn’t the same without the guy in the lizard suit and the bad English dubbing. Sigh…

    • Glenn C. says:

      That’s funny. I remember those versions. So obvious. Cheesy. On purpose. They didn’t have the high tech CG they have now.
