A new trailer for Vancouver-filmed Godzilla was released today ahead of its theatrical release on May 16, 2014.
The goose bump inducing, bone chilling trailer features Bryan Cranston’s character Joe Brody going full-on Walter White, freaking out much more than he did in Breaking Bad over the imminent destruction of the planet.
“What’s really happening is that you’re hiding something out there. It is going to send us back to the Stone Age! You have no idea what’s coming,” said Bryan’s character dramatically.
The new full-length trailer, not to be confused for last year’s teaser trailer, shows Godzilla‘s utterly massive scale and path of destruction across the Pacific from Asia to San Francisco to Las Vegas. It also reveals more of the plot, including the origins of the 1940s and 1950s South Pacific nuclear tests which apparently awoken the monster and led to subsequent ‘test’ attempts to kill it.
The monstrously epic film is by British director Gareth Edwards and is inspired by Ishiro Honda’s original 1954 classic film rather than Roland Emmerich’s 1998 New York City flick starring Matthew Broderick. Edwards’ new take on the legendary monster stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche and Sally Hawkins.
The big budget production was filmed almost entirely in B.C., including at the Vancouver Convention Centre, BC Place Stadium, city street in downtown, Richmond, Coquitlam, New Westminster, Cypress Mountain, and Vancouver Island.
