    I am so very psyched for this version
    a) because it ties in with the 50's original
    b) it's affiliated with TOHO
    c) it has Bryan Cranston
    d) it doesn't have Matthew Broderick or Hank Azaria (and I like Hank).

    It flat out looks amazing, and I believe Gareth is carrying on the spirit of the originals, and going for "what if this actually happened"? As fantastical as the possibility sounds...

    That, and the little snippet looks at the God Lizard look flat out unreal. I have been so looking forward to seeing this with my Son. He is a total Godzilla nut at 11 y.o. I showed him the teaser trailer and now this one, and his head exploded 5 times.

    Meh. Cranston is great, but between the Inception BRRAAAWWRWRRMRMRMMM horn and what I'm guessing is gonna be the actual Godzilla reveal more than two thirds way through the movie, I'm not particular interested.

    I'm fairly annoyed with the trend of "don't tell you jack" movie trailers. I do want to see this movie.

    It looks cool, but I'm more excited about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which is due out the same month IIRC.

    Not understanding the negatives...I mean, what of it being CGI? CGI CAN be used to good effect and add "realism" when the tech is respective of the subject matter and not just a highlight reel like Lucas used it for...what is your alternative if you're gonna make a Godzilla movie and strive for that "plausibility / realism"??? Stop motion / Harryhausen? Awesome but dated by todays standards. Guy in a rubber suit and miniature skyscrapers? Please.

    This movie is gonna be epic.

    I added a link to the video in your quote, it is a classic.

    My main fear of this new movie is that it won't be cheesy enough, or at all.

    A giant radioactive monster the size of a skyscraper eating and destroying anything on its path?

    Are you kidding me? It should be a man card violation to not to like this! :D

    I never saw the big guy eat anything...

    Destroy, sure...

    I must have missed that one.

    I'd like to see another Mothra too, especially if it features the Twins...

    I think this may be the greatest Godzilla movie ever BECAUSE of the special effects. The originals were super cheesy and fake, the one from 85 was much of the same SFX, the one from the 90's used what they had at the time, but in retrospect is also somewhat comical. The new trailers have me stoked, and I usually don't like movies that have no plot but a wicked special effects budget...

    Maybe he didn't completely eat it but I remember him taking a bite off of a helicopter. :p
