We’re getting more and more excited for Godzilla hitting the big screen around here, especially now that the second trailer has dropped. It actually reveals quite a bit about the movie, including where all the characters fit in.

Family Drama? In My Giant Monster Movie?

First of all, it pretty much gives away the entire opening of the movie. We see Bryan Cranston at a nuclear facility, as well as Juliette Binoche. Turns out, Binoche and Cranston are married nuclear scientists. Something goes wrong at said nuclear facility and Cranston is forced to lock his own wife into a tunnel full of radioactive steam. In case you were wondering, that is not a pleasant way to die, which explains why B-Cran is not doing very well emotionally in all the trailers.

Oh, and Kick-Ass, it turns out, is his son.

More Kaiju

As we noted before, there are going to be more kaiju in this movie than the plot summary has indicated. And we got an indication of that in the trailer. Check out this dose of ugly:


We’re not quite sure who that’s supposed to be, but we’re guessing it’s attached to that giant hook that slammed into the ground, meaning we might be getting our first look at Gigan.

You’re Gonna Hear Me Roar

Oh, and we also finally get a good look at the Big G’s face, not through blast doors or in little clips, but in all his roaring glory:


In short, we’re excited, and we can’t wait to see what Warner Brothers has in store for us on May 16th. Although, if they really wanted to make us happy, they could, oh, we don’t know, bring in the robots from Pacific Rim? You do own the property, Warners. Think about it. Gipsy Danger needs a foe.
