Trailer Review - Godzilla (2014) (2)

1st Official Trailer
Watch It Here

Person of Interest: Everybody, save for David Strathairn, return from the teaser trailer. Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe are given the heavy duty of narrating the plot and its conflict. Poor Elizabeth Olsen, she still doesn't have any importance yet. I was most certainly right about Juliette Binoche being a dead meat scientist, as evident by Cranston's shattered demeanor.

Scene Pop: Hooray, we finally get to see Godzilla's face! And, it's fine!

Briggs Breakdown: 6 BRAM music stings, 4 fired-off flares, raining jets, mass hysteria, colossal road of destruction in Las Vegas (and its ugly Statue of Liberty), some weird glowing thingy, and a callback to the first American Godzilla remake.

Effective?: Still yes. I wish the BRAMs weren't it in, though. Stupid action trailer cliche.

Check it Out?: This film is can now be safely labeled as a hot ticket. I'm still a bit concerned that Godzilla may not appear at all, given his still lack of full presence and might, but I do hope that this is corrected once it hits theaters.
