First Trailer For Godzilla 2014 Movie

The first trailer for the upcoming 2014 Godzilla movie was released a week ago... and just in case you missed it... here it is:

Like any good trailer, you don't really get a clear look at the monster... you want to keep things a bit of a mystery... but that freeze frame above... that's the best look I've seen of the critter so far.

With all of the hype being thrown at this particular flick, it's going to have to be something special... and since I've been following the makings of this particular movie for a about four years now... I can only hope they don't let the King Of The Monsters down... because it really was once upon a time a wonderful franchise.... back in 1954 when the first Godzilla movie was released... and If you've only seen Godzilla movies that weren't dated 1954... you owe it to yourself to see the original. It blew me away... and yeah, while I am one for hyperbole, this original flick was well deserved of my cheering.

From what I can tell... THIS new Godzilla looks a lot like the rubber-suit worn original... except that this time there ain't no man in a lizard suit! It's better than the dinosaur-ification that we saw with the last two American remakes... those movies reminded me of Jurassic Park.

Godzilla 2014 will be released all over the world in May of 2014 - except in Japan who will have two wait two months until July 25, 2014.

Why would Japan, the birth place of Gojira (Godzilla) get screwed up the poophole having to wait two months... well... don't pity them too much... Japan will have re-releases of a whole lot of Godzilla movies starting in a couple of weeks in 2014... as a radioactive warm-up for Japanese audiences.

I'll assume the original Japanese version will be the first one released... and that they won't show the two American ones (which, I did enjoy, by the way).

By the way... this blog did post up some video footage of the movie being shot... way back in July of 2013... it wasn't anything spectacular...  but it was some, I assume, illegally obtained footage of a scene. You can see that HERE.

Cheers

PS: That photo of the model... that is a model showing the possible look of our once and future king, Godzilla, taken back in July of 2013... compare it to the video... pretty damn close, eh?
