Godzilla Extended Trailer

"It is going to send us back to the stone age!" He's coming. WB/Legendary has debuted a 3-min extended trailer for Gareth Edwards' Godzilla. This is basically the exact same footage they showed at CinemaCon (and likely the shame they'll show at WonderCon) which features an extended look at Bryan Cranston's character's storyline, as well as some extra shots of massive destruction. What I love about this trailer is that it takes almost 2 minutes until you realize all this death and destruction you're watching is coming from Godzilla - the giant King of Monsters finally traveling from Japan to America. Something woke him up and he doesn't care about anything in his way. They're selling this movie perfectly and I am so excited to see it.

Here's the new extended look trailer for Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube:

Godzilla, being directed by Gareth Edwards (of Monsters), comes from a screenplay written by Drew Pearce, Max Borenstein and Frank Darabont. The cast is lead by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, with Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe and Juliette Binoche. An epic rebirth to Toho's iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures are sending Godzilla stomping into theaters May 16th this summer. Viral site:

    You wrote this is a 4 minute extended trailer, but the video is only 2:31?
  • rickvanr
    Eye spy another monster that isn't Godzilla! This movie is going to be so much fun!
  • These trailers give me chills.
  • Brady
    It just gets better and better. This might overtake Days of Future Past as my most anticipated film of the summer.
  • Brian Sleider
    2:20 exactly head shot of another monster?
    • si1ver
      Godzilla vs Giant Xenomorph??
    • Ron
      Yeah...I know there were 'rumours' of more than one monster being in this movie but the more I see the trailers I beginning to believe there actually are! That or did a terrible job keeping Godzilla's size consistent through out the movie!
    • Justin R
      2:21 shows the other monster. Never watched the originals so don't know much about it but definitely see something standing by Godzilla.
  • Trey Wilson
  • Nadir Ahmed
    cant wait for this film, although there was some efffy special effects shots in this trailer, i hope they sort those out before the film comes out
    • Scopedog
      They will.
  • Xerxexx
    I am excited...just excited.
    • Scopedog
      Effin'-A. That looked....amazing. And deadly serious. Keeping the fingers crossed that the film lives up to the promise shown by the trailers/TV spots.
      • Xerxexx
        Both fingers crossed.
  • Carlo
    Yup, that's how you make a f*cking Godzilla movie.

    I want to see this film and this trailer but given the amount of stuff that was given away in the trailer for Captain America, Edge of tomorrow etc, I think I best refrain in case it ruins the film. Good to see that it's stoking people up though.

      I don't know where this bullshit keeps coming from about Trailers showing off too much of a movie. A movie is 2 hours long, a trailer is only two minutes! They show a lot of pretty CGI and everyone starts bitching as if the pretty CGI is all they go for the movie for. Right fuck the story and depth of these movies that aren't spoiled at all. The saddest thing ever was a quote by a Game Developer making Amazing Spiderman 2. He was talking about all the story they were putting into the game but he's like, "Now I know a lot of people just hate the story and wanna skip through it. Don't worry, none of that stuff is mandatory in here." Are you serious? Who are these knobs that are ruining it for the rest of us? Pushing for less story and more bullshit???

        The opening shot of the trailer for Cap 2 that I recently saw on TV showed the heli carrier stacking into the SHIELD building. That's a pretty fundamental 'spoiler' for the whole tension of 'will it take off' and 'will they manage to take it down'. I guess for those that have memories like goldfish, there's nothing wrong with trailers showing all the best bits but for some if you show a memorable shot, it has the potential to be...well remembered.
        • Andrew Geczy
          Yeah but you don't know why or who is taking out the helicarrier. Not to spoil anything but you end up rooting for that scene to happen by the end.
          • Payne by name
            I've seen the film so I am well aware that they play the whole 'will it take off, will they be able to stop it' scenario. The trailer shows one stacking into the tower and another showed another carrier hitting the water. Kind of tension killing don't you think? Or how about the elevator scene, where in the trailer they played the whole "before we start, does anyone want to get off" line with the obligatory kick up of the shield. Even the still for the Cap 2 thread on this site, shows cap in an elevator surrounded by defeated opponents. They spend 5 minutes building the scene in the film with Steve noticing the sweat on peoples neck etc but again kinda pointless because Marvel themselves ruined the payoff with a need to show off all the best bits in the trailer.

    Ok that does it for me, no more trailers as I’m sold!
    • Scopedog
      I just want to yell, "Dammit, people! You don't have to convince me any more I WILL see this!" May 16th can't get here fast enough....
  • The Dude
    what Godzilla bodypart is that at 2:16?
    • NathanDewey
      think that's the flying monster. i think i spotted it's head at 2:20. maybe.
      • MisterBeasley
        I believe that it is Gigan, who has the ability to fly.
  • Guest
    Definitely looks like Gigan's claw at the 2:16 mark.
  • MisterBeasley
    Definitely looks like Gigan's claw at the 2:16 mark..
    • Brian Sleider
      Not Gigan, Mutos.
  • ds NYC
    Except Godzilla isn't the one doing all the damage... IT'S THE MUTOSSSSSS! Excited for this.
    • ds NYC
      1:45 in the video shows everything.
  • Well It looks like they watched classic Godzilla and took some notes! I cant wait to see this!
  • lshannel
  • SkyNet300
