Two years ago, Warner Bros debuted a teaser trailer for their big screen reboot of Godzilla, a bleak look at a destroyed world set to a quote from J. Robert Oppenheimer that took the audience at San Diego Comic-Con by storm. That footage was screened once again this year at their Hall H panel, but was never officially released….until now.
The below video comes from a YouTube account named “Akira Watanabe,” named after the special effects artist who worked on many Toho films (including the original Godzilla), and under the cleverly disguised name of “Fatman trailer.” The video was also uploaded three weeks ago and just now made public, which we think means WB has been planning to release it for some time. Enough from us though, enjoy the amazing trailer below!
Opening in theaters and IMAX on May 16, 2014, the Gareth Edwards-directed film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston and Sally Hawkins.
UPDATE: Unfortunately it looks like it was an actual leak and Warner Bros. Pictures is pulling the video from sites.
