I was so happy to hear that Gareth Edwards would be directing the newest incarnation of ‘Godzilla’. His film ‘Monsters’ was a great demo reel for him being able to give an interesting new take on the giant monster genre. It’s a film I urge people to check out if this new ‘Godzilla’ film looks appealing. I’m still not sure of North American audiences want an updated ‘Godzilla’ film, or even a ‘Godzilla’ film at all, but this looks impressive. It’s nice to see a Godzilla film on a much larger scale than the 90’s film. The opening sequence in the trailer with troops halo-jumping into a devastated Los Angeles and Godzilla emerging from the smoke is such a cool shot. There is also a rumor that there will be other monsters in this film, which I’m down for. ‘Godzilla’ might just end up being a decent summer-blockbuster after all.
