Godzilla Official Teaser Trailer

First teased back in July of 2012 at San Diego Comic-Con with a buzzworthy poster and trailer – set to Oppenheimer’s eerie and now infamous recollection of 1945′s “Trinity” nuclear test – director Gareth Edwards’s 2014 Godzilla reboot has been blessed with its first “official” teaser trailer from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.

Set to premiere in theaters this Friday, December 13 with the debut of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the two-and-a-half-minute teaser provides a glimpse of the immense scale taken on by Edwards’s interpretation of Toho’s iconic beast. Starring the likes of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Sally Hawkins and Ken Watanabe, the film “pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.”

The highly anticipated Godzilla is due out on May 16, 2014.
