We know there'll be a giant monster smashing stuff, but when it comes to the human characters, the actual plot of Godzilla remains pretty much a mystery. In the following vid, director Gareth Edwards takes Empire through the trailer and reveals a few tasty tidbits (Bryan Cranston plays Aaron Taylor Johnson's father for example) about what we can expect..without spoiling anything outright. Be sure to have a watch, there's some great stuff here.

An epic rebirth to Toho's iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world's most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Gareth Edwards directs Godzilla, which stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai, Inception), Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Oscar® winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Cosmopolis), and Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), with Oscar® nominee David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck., The Bourne Legacy) and Bryan Cranston (Argo, TV's Breaking Bad).

Pasto - 2/28/2014, 8:53 AM
Can someone upload the Empire trailer in this thread? That'd be great.
JoeMomma29 - 2/28/2014, 8:59 AM

MercwithMouth - 2/28/2014, 9:01 AM
Pasto, are you on spring break or something? You're here more than herpes outbreaks at Gusto's lately.
Intruuder - 2/28/2014, 9:02 AM
Batz knows my testicles!
Intruuder - 2/28/2014, 9:03 AM
I meant Remy & Sage! My bitches.
Intruuder - 2/28/2014, 9:05 AM
Gusto I suggest you remove your dentures before you suck :)
MercwithMouth - 2/28/2014, 9:06 AM

Try battery acid... Probably the only thing capable cleaning that junkreational area of yours...
JoeMomma29 - 2/28/2014, 9:08 AM

Intruuder - 2/28/2014, 9:11 AM
Gusto- I heard you give the best gumming in Detroit! Hell in the country.....
MercwithMouth - 2/28/2014, 9:11 AM
Fool me once...shame on you

Fool me twice...shame on me

Fool me 3 times...no more Gusto.
MercwithMouth - 2/28/2014, 9:13 AM
Hmmm, knows Gusto is from Detroit, knows Sage and Remy...

I think we just need an opinion on Man of Steel, and gentlemen, we can welcome back the patron saint of MS trolls.
JoeMomma29 - 2/28/2014, 9:13 AM
I am just waiting to see who is going to break out the big ball pics.
BackwardGalaxy - 2/28/2014, 9:14 AM
I want to watch movies with this guy.
batz11 - 2/28/2014, 9:14 AM
Sorry to derail the convo, you weirdos ;) tentacles meant tentacles...but I'm am mighty good with testicles too...
JoeMomma29 - 2/28/2014, 9:15 AM
@ Merc

We all know Gusto is from Detroit they keep asking him to leave because he is bringing down the value of the city.
MercwithMouth - 2/28/2014, 9:18 AM
As long as they don't send him north! Give him to Alabama, he'll fit in there.
MrDonut - 2/28/2014, 9:25 AM
Film looks cool, has a very epic feel to it. Still, anyone else think Gareth Edwards would be a good choice for Justice League?
Intruuder - 2/28/2014, 9:28 AM

Plz don't post of yucky girls on the thread! If you wanna put sexy pics it has to be of Chris Hemsworth with his sexy long blonde hair............... Sorry I just jizzed myself😳
MercwithMouth - 2/28/2014, 9:28 AM
Lol, at least you spelled eh right.
TheIronStomach - 2/28/2014, 9:31 AM
He basically just confirmed Rodan. 3 of them in fact, kind of like Toho's original 'Rodan' film where there was 2, one is killed and the other interacts with Godzilla and other Toho beasties
Intruuder - 2/28/2014, 9:35 AM
@Sid He's so dreamy! When I watch Thor I get 8=> i get so light headed when I watch him...,...
BestAtWhatIDo - 2/28/2014, 9:37 AM
I hope that idea about the original "Gojira" film existing in the world of this movie isn't just the pitch for the film's tone, and it DOES in fact exist and get referenced. That'd be a really cool world-building detail. My sense from what Edwards said is that this Godzilla wasn't created by the atom bombs; he was just awakened and pissed off by them. It's been mentioned in these threads before, but nuclear paranoia is outdated - a good update would be related to climate change, Godzilla's habitat disturbed or something. Keep the political angle, don't go all Robocop on us with a pointless remake!
