In the first teaser trailer, we only got to see the shadow and outline of Godzilla, which gave us an idea of how big he actually was. In this new trailer, however, we finally see some quick albeit detailed shots of the monster that reveal what he truly looks like.

Although this trailer does not reveal too much about character relationships, we do get an idea of the overall storyline of the film. Of course, major cities are being attacked and it is a race against time to defeat Godzilla and save the human race.

Godzilla stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, and David Strathairn.

Are you looking forward to Godzilla being in theaters on May 16, 2014? What do you think of this extended trailer? Godzilla was actually filmed here in Vancouver, BC and my dad was a crew member on the film! I am quite proud of the work that has been done and the film looks like it is going to be one action-packed adventure!
