Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released the first trailer for director Gareth EdwardsGodzilla along with a new poster  If you want to see the titular kaiju, you’re going to be in for a bit of a disappointment, but you should be encouraged by the style Edwards is bringing to the movie.  There are some great-looking shots, especially the opening halo jump and the red smoke clouds following the paratroopers.  And when Godzilla is finally “revealed”, it’s in a stunning, smokey silhouette.  It’s an effective teaser trailer, and I don’t mind waiting to see more while the special effects team attempts to recreate one of cinema’s most memorable monsters.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer and check out the new poster.  The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Juliette BinocheDavid Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, and Sally Hawkins.  Godzilla opens in 3D on May 16, 2014.

An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
