OMG. Or rather, OMG-zilla. I am so excited for this movie that I can barely type this part of the article because I am distracted by the trailer I have on perpetual loop. Godzilla will be the surprise hit of the summer. There. I said it. When I first read about the cast that began populating this monster movie reboot, it gave me hope. It gave me hope that had once been dashed by the 1998 Roland Emmerich monstrosity that killed Godzilla on and off-screen. Early photos and buzz really began to get people chatting that we may have something here, but when the trailer dropped, the die was cast. Look out, superhero movies this summer. Bryan Cranston is angry, Ken Watanabe is worried and Aaron Taylor-Johnson is terrified as we get glimpses of the massive beast tearing through cities. But the real star of these teasers is the tone. The film looks epic, but also eerily scary. Add an air of mystery and we have the most anticipated movie of the summer that will surprise at the box office. Speaking of adding:
(Legendary Monster) + (All-Star Cast)
(Dean Devlin + Roland Emmerich)
(Gritty Realism) - (Matthew Broderick)
