Godzilla Trailer Released

Narrating the nearly two and a half minute clip is David Strathairn, who plays the soldiers’ commander. “I realize not all of you have had hands-on experience, and frankly, none of us have ever faced a situation quite like this one before,” he says in voiceover. “But I would not be asking any one of you to take this leap, if I did not have complete faith in your ability to succeed. Your courage will never be more needed than it is today.”

As the soldiers descend upon the city, including Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), the monster wreaks havoc on the subways and the metropolis’ skyscrapers. A fearful Elle Brody (Elizabeth Olsen) holds her younger brother tight, as her father Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) tries to figure out what to do. As the trailer comes to a close, Godzilla rises to his full height in the center of the city and releases a piercing scream.

Also starring in the Godzilla reboot are Oscar winner Juliette Binoche, Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe and Victor Rasuk. The original story written by Dave Callaham was adapted for the feature by Max Borenstein.

Godzilla is slated to hit theaters May 16, 2014.
