Looked nice, especially the beginning with the guys jumping and falling through the sky. But when Godzilla yelled... it kinda sounded weird, like an angry sheep.

FINALLY! Seems like I've been waiting ages.

EDIT : This is the trailer that was leaked a while ago. At least it's in better quality :)

this is going to be the 2001 of monsters-destroying-a-city movies! :P

anyway, i guess i'm glad that they aren't making it a found footage movie or anything, but it also seems to be taking itself more seriously than i might with a godzilla movie.

Needs more Matthew Broderick.

Movie definitely has loads of potential! Will be keeping my eye on this. Might be a perfect movie to see on a huge IMAX screen.

Is it just me or does Godzilla seem to be bigger than before? Thing is looking ENORMOUS!

Quality actors. Glad they didn't showed Godzilla completely. Looks fine.

I remember reading somewhere that the size is supposed to be the largest he's been to date. But this begs to be seen on IMAX.

Well it kinda looks like crap to this point

Bryan Cranston crying? Really?

If it's a movie that's all about the people then it's going to be awful. No one goes into a Godzilla movie caring what happens to the people. From the look of this trailer it looks like they're going to have a character that's a soldier, that's a big no no in the Godzilla universe.

I'm a little worried that Godzilla's head and neck are all one segment. Makes me think of Ferris Godzilla.

I don't understand why American movies need to do this with giant monsters. The Japanese handle Godzilla very well, made him a worldwide phenomenon doing what they do. They focus on Godzilla and other monsters and use the human characters to establish franchise history and to move the film along. This movie looks like the human characters are the main point of the story, that's a really bad sign.

The roar is better than what we heard previously. I don't know what that roar is for in that scene but it's done better than earlier teases.

That is cool to know!

And yeah, can't miss this one on IMAX. I'm already mad that I missed out on seeing Pacific Rim in IMAX...

There's going to be more than just one monster in it, so there's that. I think they're just focusing on the humans for the this trailer so as not save the money shots as the release date draws near.

As far as there being a soldier as one of the main characters, why is that a bad thing?

I hope that's why they included so many shots of people reacting to things.

What scares me is that the director is one of those touchy feely people and that could work for certain monsters, maybe even Kong, but not Godzilla.

As far as a soldier they're the the same as red shirts in Star Trek. I don't even watch Star Trek but I know that the guys in red shirts get killed fast, they're killing fodder.

The only exception in the Godzilla universe is if that soldier played a specific role earlier in the Godzilla franchise.

I'm a big Godzilla fan and just don't want another Ferris Godzilla.

Have you seen the newest Gamera movies? I think those are close to perfect how you can incorporate suitmation monsters, CGI, and character stories into a modern monster movie.

I'm not sure if you've ever read some of the Godzilla comics, but the one that comes to mind is The Half-Century War. It tells the story of a soldier and starting with his first encounter with Godzilla, chronicles five decades of his life and his obsession with trying to bring him down. I think it was a great story that while it had a strong human element, still managed to give Godzilla the proper recognition and respect it deserves.

I'm not sure how the story in the upcoming movie is going to play out, but the director and Legendary Pictures have been working very closely with Toho Co. in just about all aspects of the film--they even approved of the final creature design before production even began, I believe--so I seriously doubt it's going to be anything remotely close to what Roland Emmerich had done back in the '90s. I'm willing to give this the benefit of the doubt.

I didn't realize they even made newer Gamera movies. The only ones I've seen were the ones that were featured in the T.V. show Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Bryan Cranston? Juliette Binoche? Sally Hawkins? Elizabeth Olsen?

Not bad.

that 2001 monolith music was a nice creepy touch

Looks way better than expected, I'm intrigued.

Ha, I thought I was hearing things :D

I like it, seems pretty tense and it feels like it has a great atmosphere.

'2001' score at the beginning was great. Good cast. Still doesn't really have me totally hyped though.

#20 Edited by Legendaryscmt (12532 posts) -

The only thing I didn't like was that the ending shot was re-used from the earlier trailer, but beyond that was fantastic.

I was excited for this movie like two years ago when I heard they are making a Godzilla movie. May will be a busy month for movies with Amazing Spiderman 2 and Godzilla.

I'm sold.

Looks pretty hokey to me. Can't say I'm dying to see another monster film.

#25 Edited by Hexagon_777 (20018 posts) -

Thank you for posting the trailer. ^_^

#26 Posted by chernoalpha527 (88 posts) -

Im pretty damn excited to see the movie now, I have been following it for years and I never thought it would get released, but it was worth the wait great trailer. I really liked how dark the tone was and how well they established Godzilla as a huge indestructible force.

this looks like a movie I'll pay money to see :-)

This. One of the things that the director wanted was to evoke was the tone of the original 1954 movie, and I think he just might pull it off. I got a sense of dread and fear just when they revealed the ruins of the city. It almost feels like a horror movie, in a way.

Come to think of it, I wonder if this will give little kids bad dreams.

Awesome......i hope it will be good.

#32 Posted by punkpunker (3320 posts) -

OMG!!!! i wonder if the spec-ops team is to investigate a nuke storage facility and it just happened that godzilla is in the scene...

#33 Posted by EnoshimaJunko (189 posts) -

Cool! Although, its hard to tell if the movie's gonna be any good or not. Trailers are rarely indicative of a movie's quality. I just kinda hope that the roar is better. Wasn't into the roar in the trailer. Why not keep the roar that Godzilla has had for decades?

Side note: Why drop not-heavily-armed paratroopers through thunderclouds to fight Godzilla?
