Our first look: Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla 2014

The modern remake of the classic Japanese-based monster tale is a climax set to be released later this year and is even to be starring Kick Ass’s own Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

For those who aren’t familiar with the story of Godzilla, he’s known for being the King of Monsters – first notable for terrorising the people of Japan before later moving onto the Americans.

But this modern adaptation of Godzilla does have a reputation behind it and when dealing with such a highly reputable yet well-known story, there are always doubts into the production and whether it will be good enough.

Who can forget the original Godzilla film released in 1998, which happened to win Best Special Effects at the 26th Saturn Awards (as well as much more other accolades that are perhaps, rather disappointing to mention not forgetting the bad reviews).

The build-up for the audience to finally getting the chance see the creature was well played out, and who could forget the moment Godzilla appears out of the water as a huge round bulge chasing the helpless fisherman out of his spot?

Godzilla did a great job hiding though. One minute he wrecked the city, the next minute he was gone.

For anyone who has seen the trailer for the up-and-coming Godzilla film, producers have been very good at concealing the creature again (and he looks bigger and meaner than ever).

As the trailer finishes off, the chaos and destruction that plagues the whole of his playground is what we can assume that Godzilla has already been on a rampage.

But perhaps Godzilla doesn’t destroy as much as we think it did, and this is just a carefully thought-out teaser, just so we can see the power Godzilla is truly capable of bringing upon the earth (and get us buying tickets).

Either way, the famous Godzilla roar (or hair-raising screech) at the end of the trailer, is the perfect way to get film-fans tense prior to the release later this year.

Release date: 16 May 2014
