      Yep. Also there are supposedly 2 other giant monsters, which you can catch glimpses of in the trailer.

        Saw the trailer last night in front of 300: Rise of an Empire. Looks sweet!

          This looks pretty cool, the silliness of the Broderick movie kind of killed the that cgi monster movie. Rodan is for sure one of the monsters, not for sure what the tentacle/sucker creature might be. Hope there is a ton of mayhem.

          The back of a Godzilla toy states..."Goijara" was last spotted in 1954, when the U.S. Navy encountered him and attempted to kill him with an atomic blast in the Pacific Ocean. Since then, the giant creature has been living in the deep ocean until a threat to his survival from an ancient foe forces him to appear.

            I'm going to spoiler tag this, but I don't think it's actually a spoiler.

              It looks awesome but the trailer made a fatal error by showing the monster at the end. Movies of this nature are much more effective in building atmosphere and tension with what you don't see. Jaws is an excellent example of this, as it's not until two thirds into the movie that the shark is finally revealed and audiences were terrified. By showing the monster in the advance trailer, the producers of Godzilla are wasting the opportunity to build tension and keep audiences in the dark.

                I never really though of Godzilla as that kind of movie though. It's not really about tension as much as sheer overwhelming power and destruction. It's pretty hard for a gigantic monster to be ominous, unless you're going for the whole "Cloverfield" thing, which probably isn't a good thing to aim for since that was a pretty terrible movie.

                Edit: I just thought of something. Godzilla movies aren't really "Horror" or "Suspense" movies like a Jaws type movie is. They are more "Disaster" movies.

                  Always enjoyed the Godzilla movies of old. I look forward to this new one.

                    Not sure if I will see this at the theatre or not. I loved the old dubbed Godzilla movies as a kid (and the original Ultraman series was awesome too! - have them on DVD). The Matthew Broderick one was terrible and same as Godzilla 2000 (?). They need to stick to what works best, and if that means a guy in a rubber suit (even if you can see the zipper line up the back like in some of those Japanese monster movies/series), then so be it.

                      I liked Godzilla 2000! Better than the MB version, any way.

                        I never actually saw Godzilla 2000 maybe I'll have to check it out. The MB version was pretty terrible. That said if this had been called / branded as anything other than Godzilla I'd still be very interested in it.

                          I'm with you on this one Dan! Looks bad ass regardless of the name. I like Godzilla 2000 definitely better the US version, but it still didn't quite have the same feel as the older ones I grew up on. Haven't seen any since though.

                            I recently saw this on on-demand. Didn't think I would enjoy that much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Not sure why exactly, but the team behind the picture balanced everything nicely. Much better tone than "Pacific Rim." And I must admit: I liked that Godzilla was sort of not in it that much. Not sure why on that either, except to say that, as we all know, sometimes the villains are more interesting than the hero.

                            A future film should tackle global warming and the environment by bringing back the Smog Monster. Be neat to see an allegorical approach, showcasing the political battle currently going on in that arena. Imagine an O'Reilly-type character saying something like: "So the liberals say this 'smog monster' boogeyman is going to come and get us...we've had dealings with other beasts, but seriously, a smog monster?...show me the proof, Mrs. President, show me the proof...and that's your memo for tonight...".
