Having seen 2014’s Godzilla–which as far as I am concerned will go down in history as the first Godzilla film where Godzilla was almost a tertiary character in its own movie–I was hoping that Toho Co. Ltd, the original creators of the radioactive-firebreathing lizard, would do a much better job (and the less I say about the 1998 pseudo-Godzilla movie, the better)
Yet having seen the teaser trailer for their upcoming Godzilla: Resurgence, I am a bit concerned.
The trailer features a lot of people running away from something–a la Cloverfield–which the camera never shows. Things end with Godzilla’s distinctive roar.
What concerns me is that Godzilla movies are never about the civilians. In fact, their entire purpose is primarily to avoid being trampled by the monster, though it’s never about them.
Tomorrow is supposed to be the premiere of the new trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, where I’ll try to avoid comparing how Apocalypse looks to a Power Ranger villain (though probably not very hard).
