The 'Godzilla' Trailer is Upon Us: VIDEO


"Kaiju", as we all now know thanks to Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, is a Japanese word that roughly translates to "ginormous city-flattening monster of ultimate mass destruction" (Google Translate is still a beta product). The creatures have been fodder for Ultraman, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, Voltron, and Evangelions for decades, but now the king kaiju himself is returning to the theaters next May in Godzilla.

You can watch the teaser trailer for what will hopefully be the first good Godzilla movie since at least the 70's AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Towleroad has become a mass of corporate promotion. I personally don't believe that Towleroad is serving the best interests of the gay community.

  2. I have fond memories of going to the drive-in as a kid/teen in the 70's and enjoying those cheesy Godzilla movies. Ridiculous, but fun. The trailer makes this version look pretty good, but often trailers are better than the film as we know. I'm glad too, they've foregone the Bwaah…Bwaah "Inception" style soundtrack

  3. The director made the interesting "Monsters" in which he created all the fx. This looks both serious and spectacular.

  4. Another Godzilla movie?! The last one in the 1990's, starring Matthew Broderick, was a bomb.
    This clip looks somewhat entertaining, but who are the stars in it? Give us more information.
    I'm simply surprised that they're doing old Fire-Mouth all over again.

  5. Jason, when did you give yourself a last name? Same troll, new name.

  7. The Matthew Broderick iteration will always hold a special place in my heart, but this looks thrilling.

  10. Does he or the movie have homosexual tendencies ?

  11. I personally believe that Jason Smets is pretentious as hell and for somebody that dislikes the site, he sure took time to type it into his url and then comment on it. Nobody forced you to come here you tool. And until there is a poll, you don't get to say what does or doesn't serve the best interests of the gay community.

  12. Finally! Something that can match up to the original Gojira film. Now this I'm definitely looking forward to.

  13. I'll see it - for sure.

  14. Crushed trains, smashed buildings, squished people, New York in smitherines - I can't get enough. This looks entertaining all right. So much better than meaningful dialogue.

    Suggestion: make it happen in Toronto with a close-up of Kiwi's expanded mouth as he falls on it with shattering teeth that explode like grenades. Comic relief and yet somehow very real.

  15. FYI, this new Godzilla will be set in San Francisco. It never made any sense why Godzilla was all the way in New York when Japan is closer to the West coast.

    And we have to remember that this is a blog, not a website. Andy and his editors can post whatever they want.

  16. i never thought i'd say this, but i am SOOOOO in!!!!

  17. Frankly, I like my Godzilla to have a bit of a Pokemon quality to it. Namely, it should have a heart, take out the bad guys, and can blow some kinda nuclear beam from its mouth (that is pretty much a Kamehameha). Ahh... those are the good old days.

  18. The Devlin/Emerich movie was unworthy of the name (hence why Toho christened the new monster "Zilla" - because they took the 'god' out). This movie looks like it will be taking itself seriously (like the original 'Gojira') which makes a nice change from the cheesiness that dominates Toho's efforts. I really hope it works.

  19. I like a good monster-thriller as much as anybody. But, really, we've got real monsters threatening to destroy our country in the Republican party, the NSA, the Pentagon - in short, in the persons doing their darndest to assemble a corporatist-paramilitary fascist state. I'd really like it if film-makers would turn their lenses on Washington where the destruction is really taking place.

  20. And I was sure gay marriage would be the end of America, bless Godzilla!

  21. The False Little Kiwi is making his presence known again. The real one is a gentleman. But this one - un-oh!

    Posted by: David Drom Canada | Dec 11, 2013 11:08:40 AM

  22. Y'all don't know nothin. The best of all the Kaiju movies was "Gorgo". Period.

  23. I like me some godzilla. But this trailer? ZZZzzzzzzzzzz.

  24. If there is going to be yet another Godzilla movie it seems like it should bring something fresh to the whole affair.
    I didn't see it here.
    Try harder, Godzilla!

    Posted by: Matt | Dec 11, 2013 1:03:31 PM

  25. The first one - the original Japanese version - is probably the best of the lot but the scenes that made it a decent movie were cut from the American version and replaced with drivel.
