GODZILLA Trailer. GODZILLA Stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston | Collider
Gonna steal jd's thunder on this one, looks spectacular. I hope it's not just a good trailer... Cloverfield had a great one too.
I'm in for Jupiter Ascending. I think it looks pretty good, and I still like the Wachowskis.
yer gonna do it Brownie...
Do it right...
My thoughts...it certainly looks like a journey to fort kickass. I think that Edwards is bringing that cool 'humanity detached from the face of something that cannot be fathomed by our tiny brains' quality that Monsters had. Looks heavy. And Godzilla looks pretty damned skippy(that still was misrepresentative). VERY excited for this one.
And why the Cloverfield hate. I actually dig that movie and think it's probably gonna be close in spirit to what this Godzilla flick is going to shoot for.
As for Jupiter Ascending, I have yet to see a Wachowski flick I did not like, but this one looks a little more mainstream than I was expecting. I guess when you have Tatum/Kunis as the leads the studios want something a little more palatable for the masses. Mind you, I am likely reading too much into a 2 minute trailer, so we shall see.

Spot on analysis.Quote:
But for now, this first official trailer for the film is pure tease, and smartly handled. In particular, I love the way it starts. What I want most from this film is some sense of the awe we would feel if giant monsters suddenly woke up and started roaming the Earth, and it feels like they may have nailed that. Edwards wasn't the immediate choice to helm this film if you're just going by box-office accomplishments, but anyone who saw "Monsters" knows that he's very good at finding quiet moments even amidst chaos and mayhem.
Wisely, this first trailer focuses on the human beings who are going to be the focus of the film, and the hardest part of making a Godzilla movie is figuring out what the balance is supposed to be between humans and monster action. As much as I loved the Godzilla films when I was a kid, when I see them these days while my kids watch and re-watch them, I am struck by how little time is actually spent with the giant monsters. Even so, that shot from above as they're plummeting towards him makes me feel awe towards the character for the first time as an adult. Finally, he looks the way he looked in my imagination as a kid, majestic and terrifying, a primal force of nature unleashed.
Ultimately, if they get the human story right and they make it genuinely compelling while also offering us a very real glimpse of what it would look like to live in a world like this, then the sky's the limit for how big the film can be. We have to be able to relate to it, and he's certainly got a cast that is capable of that. Here's hoping the script came together during the shoot and that Edwards is able to bring the tone of that sensational earlier sizzle reel for the film to the actual feature.
Jupiter Ascending trailer was a little random. It's hard to tell what to expect from the movie. Maybe that means that the movie is not as direct and mainstream jerseydevil suspects; or maybe it just means the trailer itself lacks structure.
Godzilla looks great, I think, but instead of the dramatic lack of music that doesn't quite work, they should have busted out into the Godzilla march song. Go ahead and use the roar, use the song. Not every single thing has to be re-done. In fact, either of those sounds always make my heart skip a beat in joyous anticipation.
Saw the Godzilla trailer and am not impressed. I DEMAND more Rubber Suit Godzilla stomping through model towns and less crappy American Actors. Also, I demand new young, hot Mothra twins. MONKEY HAS SPOKEN!
