Watch: ‘Godzilla’ First Clip Sets Up Monstrous Fight

Each reveal of the bigger Godzilla shows a badder monster.

The first clip from Warner Bros. and Legendary’s “Godzilla” reboot promises destruction from two fronts. The teaser not only shows the iconic scaly green lizard in its colossal glory but another flying reptile.

Gareth Edwards’ adventure, starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, pits the Japanese monster against other predators, who are bolstered by scientific meddling to stop the lizard.

“The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in our control and not the other way around,” Ken Watanabe’s Dr. Ichiro Serizawa warns in the clip. “Let them fight.”

Like in the clip, the titular monster doesn’t rear its ugly head until late in the movie.

“[If] you throw everything you can at the screen, you’ve got nowhere else to go,” Edwards told Vulture about the pacing of the film. “It’s kind of like cinematic foreplay.”

The action unfolds in theaters on May 16.
