While leaked low quality versions of the Godzilla trailer have been circulating online for a couple months, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have just officially released the first full theatrical trailer for Godzilla in all its HD glory. The trailer will premiere in theaters with screenings of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which opens this weekend.
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. Gareth Edwards is directing the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont and Dave Callaham.
Godzilla is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 16, 2014.
