Until this point, Godzilla trailers have mostly been a lot of Bryan Cranston yelling but that doesn’t put butts in seats in Asia. So for the Godzilla trailer released in Asia, the marketing department gives the people what they want — giant monsters and the inference that they are going to fight. And more Ken Watanabe (he’s like the Bryan Cranston of Asia).

This is our first real look at Godzilla‘s opponent, MUTO (outside of toy form), which appears to be some kind of pterodactyl with radioactive hook arms. Which means it was either conceived by a six-year old or a really high person.

Could you fight NOT in the center of a major city, please?

When watching the most recent Godzilla trailer, you might have noticed some monster parts that didn’t look familiar. Turns out that, yes, Godzilla will feature a second monster. Pictures of the film’s toy-line have arrived online that feature the giant monster bat thing that Godzilla will inevitably pick up and throw into skyscrapers as if people don’t live and store all of their shit there. Can’t you two go fight in a giant field or something?

Sadly, there are no Juliette Binoche action figures so thank god you didn’t sell off your Dan in Real Life playset. I highly recommend you peruse the Godzilla licensed product guide. This thing is packed with treasure. Like this sweet baby.

Can I put this image on my checks?

If you’ve been watching the last few Godzilla trailers, you know that Bryan Cranston seems to hate the crap out of the giant monster. The latest, extended trailer fills in the gaps to explain the Cranston-Godzilla beef. You see, it seems that Godzilla forced Cranston to have to kill his own wife. Talk about bad first impressions. That would cheese me off too.

Team Cranston! Even though he’s being a bit of a hypocrite here.

This being the first trailer for Gareth Edwards‘s Godzilla, we see very little of the monster. We do, however, see mankind rallying to deal with the giant nuclear lizard threat. That effort somehow involves sky-diving at the monster while unarmed. I’m not sure how that subdues the beast.

Beyond that, we’re also treated to Godzilla‘s path of destruction and shocked reaction shots from Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and the only Japanese actor in Hollywood’s rolodex, Ken Watanabe.

David Goyer just got an awesome assignment. The Dark Knight Rises and Man Of Steel writer will pen Legendary Pictures‘ new version of Godzilla. Plot details are under wraps but I imagine lots of screaming and running. And maybe there will be other monsters for Big G to chest-bump.

Monsters director Gareth Edwards is also attached which could be really good news. He could be just the director to help us get inside the head of Godzilla and see what makes him tick. He must have dreams. Dreams that don’t involve throwing buildings and orphanages. (Deadline)

Directors McG and Gareth Edwards

Left: Gareth Edwards - Right: Beelzebub

Good news for people who love terrifying monsters: McG is back. Oh, and so is Monsters director Gareth Edwards.

McG is set to direct Ouija, a film based on the supernatural-themed board game produced by Hasbro. If you think that’s a stupid idea, don’t mention it to Universal Pictures. It’s the studio’s second boardgame-based production, with Battleship already well under way.

If that’s not your style, perhaps Gareth Edwards can interest you in a reboot of the Godzilla franchise. The director is reportedly on board to write and direct the project for Warner Bros.

While these projects might not be the most original in the world, they do allow me to point out that Hollywood is all out of ideas, which marks the 214th time I’ve done so since I began working for ScreenJunkies back in June of 2009. That fact might make it seem like I’m not very original, myself. But as the rapper once said, don’t hate the player, hate the game…the game of Ouija. (Source: Latino Review 1 and 2)

We didn't post the first trailer because, y'know, too much typing. Also, there wasn't much to be shown. But this time around, we have a sliiiightly more substantial look. And don't worry it doesn't include spoilers, so you should be in good shape if you want to walk into the theater without knowing too much. I'm all for preserving the mystery and watching through fresh eyes. It's rare that you get the opportunity, and Monsters is said to be an awesome giant monster movie with focus on character. Suck on that, Starship Troopers 2: Hero Of The Federation. Take a stroll through the infected hellhole of Mexico after the jump...
