Godzilla - Military

This may be pure hype, but I have to say it brings a smile to my face to see the U.S. Air Force brush off a giant monster attack like it's nothing. Don't mess with the US military. In promotion of the new Godzilla, the Air & Space Magazine reached out to the USAF to ask them realistically about how they could handle/if they could handle an attack from the infamous giant radioactive lizard monster. The calm, cool responses from one Master Sergeant Jason Edwards of the USAF 18th Wing at Kadena Air Base are genius. The 18th Wing is the special mission group actually seen in the Godzilla movie, and it opens with their introduction.

Here's the full segment with clips from a couple of US Air Force reps addressing a potential Godzilla attack:

Thank you to AirSpaceMag.com for researching this and conducting the interviews - nice work! Now go see Godzilla in theaters next weekend, and find out if Hollywood believes we're ready for a giant monster attack.

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: MUTOresearch.net.

    I didn't know Darabont contributed to the script. Awesome.

      That is interesting to know. I just read he "re-worked" it to accomplish the terrify "force of nature" tone as opposed to a campy film with a cliche love story attached. Thank God. Godzilla needs to be horrifying in my humble opinion.

        Agreed. On a side note...could our air force take down Mecha Godzilla...food for thought.

          Well, I have 3 things to say about that Mecha Godzilla fight: 1. How pissed would Mecha be? 2. Refer to question #1 as it determines the outcome. 3. Do not talk about fight club.

    Humans wouldn't know what to do if Godzilla or a Kaiju were to attack, we would all die that is what would happen. The only reason we stand a single chance in hell in the movies is because.... Well it's A FUCKING MOVIE!!! and the audience needs a good story

    Bullcrap, the military couldn't stop Godzilla-all their stupid missiles would do jackshit against the King of the Monsters. Silly Americans.
