Godzilla is now less than a month away and we’re seeing TV spots, posters, and all manner of promotional material drop almost daily at this point, sometimes even more frequently than that. We wouldn’t want to stop talking about director Gareth Edwards’ upcoming reboot, you might forget about it after all, so today’s installment of Godzilla-related news comes with a fantastic commercial with some impressive new footage, and an interview where Edwards shares some of his hopes for the film.
The early portion of this video focus on the character side of the film, showing what they’ve lost and what they have to lose. Bryan Cranston’s Joe Brody loses his wife, Juliette Binoche, in what appears to be an accident at a nuclear facility. So he has that going on. Joe’s son, Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and his wife, Elle (Elizabeth Olsen), have each other, as well as a young child. When a giant lizard comes calling, you start to consider the possibility that all of this can be ripped away from you in a matter of moments.
