Independence Day isn’t the only movie that’s enjoyed a ‘resurgence’ as of late. Most recently, Godzilla has joined to club with Godzilla: Resurgence
And I honestly think that you see more of Godzilla in the trailer than you do in the entirety of Gareth Edwards’ 2014 eponymously named movie.
That being said, as much as I wanted to see more of the big lizard, having done so I recall the adage ‘Be careful of what you ask for, you just might get it’ because this version of Toho Co.’s venerable kaiju looks a bit…weird.
Check out the scrawny arms and dissicated-looking skin. He shares some visual cues with a tyrannosaur, though looks oddly zombified and more than a bit terrifying.
Which is interesting because traditionally Godzilla has never looked particularly scary. Its (which has been at various times male and female, I think) primarily claim to fame were its humongous size, Japanese city-crushing tendencies, and radioactive breath.
Visually? Always interesting, though honestly never evoked a reaction one way or another.
This most recent version? Monstrous.
I also like that it still seems to still be a guy in a rubber suit. Sure, technically speaking you can do less with a more practical Godzilla, but there’s one thing it its favor: It’s actually there.
