And the best entrance in a trailer goes to... Godzilla! The highly mysterious production (the cast and crew unveiled the best teaser at this year's Comic Con) delivers one of the best trailers of the year. And this has to be one of the best introductory trailers of recent memory. The previous reboot of Godzilla (1998) starring Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno and Hank Azaria is much maligned but I always have fond memories of the film. It was one of the first DVDs I ever bought.
This new reimagining of the legendary Godzilla is much more serious and has amped the visuals and tone of the film. Director Gareth Edwards has previously helmed Monsters (2010), a small film which was widely praised for delivering big thrills. It will be definitely exciting to see how he handles this big-scale (pun intended) movie. Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston, the monster movie is set to release May 16, 2014. Spider-Man, Godzilla, Maleficent and a whole slew of X-Men, it's going to be one crowded May next year.
