The new Godzilla Resurgence trailer is full of gravitas, pathos, and splosions


You'll cry, and you'll kaboom

I wasn't that much of a fan of Gareth Edwards' 2014 Godzilla. While well-shot, the story was so-so and focused too much on Aaron Taylor-Johnson's bland lead character. It didn't help that Blandy McBlanderson was surrounded by a mostly forgettable group of generic supporting characters. (What a waste of Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, and Ken Watanabe.)

The new Japanese Godzilla film, Godzilla Resurgence/Shin Gojira, looks like the sort of movie I was looking for, though. Co-directed by Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (Gamera, Attack on Titan), the first trailer for Godzilla Resurgence was promising. This new trailer also makes the movie look pretty splendid, mixing melancholy, military strikes, and giant monsters. Give it a watch.

I think I have something in my eye... it's a bread crumb. How'd that get there?

Here's a synopsis for Godzilla Resurgence:

A cause unknown, an accident has occurred in the tunnels of the Tokyo Bay Aqua Line, causing an emergency cabinet meeting to convene. Immediately afterwards, a huge creature appears, destroying town after town with its landing reaching the capital. The mysterious giant organism named Godzilla.

Godzilla Resurgence hits Japanese theaters on July 29th. When we get details on the international release, we'll be sure to share them with you.
