New Godzilla Trailer

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

There’s a new Godzilla trailer out:


  • I’m a Godzilla fan from way back in my youth.
  • This is directed by Gareth Edwards, whose Monsters I loved.
  • It has a script by Frank Darabont, AKA “The Only Guy Who Can Make Great Films From Stephen King’s Novels.”
  • Holy shit does Zilla look big.
  • If you need something to fill the time between now and May 2014, may I suggest Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack? Despite the cheesy title, this is actually the best Godzilla film since the original Gojira
  • Mood: Cautious Optimism.

    Roger Ebert Reviews Monsters

    He liked it.

    Just like Howard and I liked it.

    If it seems like I’m pimping Monsters a lot, it’s only because I am. It’s the sort of independent film that doesn’t have enough of an ad budget for people to hear about it without word of mouth. So I try to do my part to encourage people to see it if it’s playing in their area. Consider that a recommendation, and remember it for Hugo and Nebula voting.

    Over at Locus Online.

    Read the review, but the short version is that we really liked it. Here’s the short trailer:

    The problem with that trailer is that it makers you think the movie is something from the “BOO shock” school of horror films, and it really isn’t.

    And here’s an interview with director Gareth Edwards:

    If it’s playing anywhere near you I would encourage you to see it.
