It’s been taken down by Warner already, but for a time this morning on YouTube there was the first real trailer from Gareth Edwards’ reboot of the monster smashing franchise. Luckily someone grabbed it first, so here it is! –
Apart from the dark tone and the fact that the destruction looks very real, the most comforting aspect of this trailer is the sign that the monster itself is going to reflect the original design rather than the terrible Americanised interpetation from the 1998 version. Pacific Rim really reminded me why I love monster movies so much, so Godzilla can’t return soon enough.
