The first official trailer for the upcoming Godzilla remake was a bit of a disappointment, with the action mostly lost in "scattershot" visuals.
The latest trailer ditches those seemingly random images in favor of a more illustrative—and certainly more exciting—preview of the star-studded epic to come from director Gareth Edwards. Featuring even more destruction than before, as well as wrenching voice-overs from Bryan Cranston (“You’re lying!”) and Ken Watanabe, Godzilla is starting to look like a spectacularly wrought disaster flick. Here's hoping.
