Have always been a fan of Godzilla and its genre(even had the Destroy All Monsters Melee game for the GC), so I'm very exited for this.

Looks so awesome.

Now I can only pray for a Pacific Rim crossover in 2016 as well.

I remember seeing the one from '98 in the cinema with a friend of mine. I was like 7 years old at that time, and remember it fondly.

After seeing this teaser I linked it to him, and we decided to see this Godzilla-movie together as well.

Everyone knows the US military would make quick work of even a giant monster like Godzilla.

Possibly, but if it manages to get into a human city like New York, I don't know if they would be able to make quick work of it without causing major human casualties and tons of collateral damage(though collateral would probably be a given by then).

Got to say though, although I'm exited for the movie the trailer didn't really catch my attention much.

Never understood the appeal of Godzilla. And why are they going back to the fat rubber suit design, exactly?

And is Godzilla a he or a she anyway?

Then again an animal as big as Godzilla would be physically impossible anyway.

Because its a huge monster and causes tons of destruction.

Plus it kind of ties into the whole Hiroshima disaster, where radiation and its side effects were a huge concern for the Japanese people during the time Godzilla and the big monster genre got huge over there, and it slowly spilled into Western Media.

Godzilla's gender is usually never revealed, but when it is its usually a she.

As that article points out with the elephant versus giant mouse, that it is possible if the density and structure of the bones increases to be able to uphold the weigth and muscle tissues would probably also have gto change and adapt to work. such as the muscle fibers themselves being only thicker they'd instead have more of them.

If you want a comparison, look at gorilla and human bones. The gorilla bones are a lot denser. Our light bones actually makes us kinda unique among the larger apes.

The leaked trailer from ComicCon was more atmospheric, though this one does have that cool airdrop sequence.

Godzilla is one of the few Japanese things im willing to partake in. He looks really cool and pissed, but im expecting this to be PEOPLE RUNNING AWAY: The movie.

Have you ever seen the original Godzilla (or Gojira)? I'm not really much for most Godzilla/kaiju type movies (I did like Pacific Rim), but the first one's quite well-done.

Godzilla 2000 has been forgotten so easily.

Personally if it uses CG instead of Physical props as a godzilla movie it's already lost me. The technical marvels in the modern fx craft could make for something more amazing than another CG Godzilla flick.

It kinda goes hand in hand with liking dinosaurs and dragons for me. I just think giant reptilian powerhouses are pretty badass.

And yeah, the trailer was good. Revealed Godzilla at a respectable level.
