Trailer Shows Mankind Summoning Courage To Stop 'Godzilla' From Destroying Our Stuff

We don't come to Monster Island and smash up your shit. 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.

Monsters Collide In Latest 'Godzilla' Trailer

"Let them fight." 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.


Giant 'Pacific Rim' Monster Attacks The Heck Out Of San Francisco

Oakland just got sh*ttier. As if life in San Francisco weren't difficult enough with the high rents and modern times inciting the slow extermination of the city's bohemian roots and culture. Now they've got to worry about giant kaiju climbing from the ocean and trashing the place. If it's not one thing, it's another. The new viral clip for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim shows a giant monster destroying the Golden Gate Bridge and fighting jets via crappy news footage. And while we don't get a great peek at the monster or the giant mechanized robot suits that will be used to slay these Godzillas, it's enough to get everyone excited. Those monsters started this and mankind will finish it. That was our best bridge.


Elizabeth Olsen FREAKS OUT In 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' Trailer

She does a flawless Mischa Barton. Elizabeth Olsen made a big splash at this past year's Sundance Film Festival with her appearance in Martha Marcy May Marlene. Now, those of us who have trouble breathing in high altitudes can see what all the hub-bub was about. In this trailer, the newly-discovered credible Olsen seems really solid in the role of a girl who returns to her family after spending time with a cult. And John Hawkes is effortlessly creepy as the cult leader. I bet he watches his people poop. Seems like the type. The film hits theaters on October 7th and Cannes before that. I have to say, Olsen nails this role of a confused girl freaking out for no apparent reason. It's a flawless Mischa Barton impression.


Elizabeth Olsen Has A Crappy Vacation In 'Silent House' Trailer

Rest and relaxation my foot. After a few breakout hits at Sundance, everyone wants Elizabeth Olsen these days. So much so that she's being stalked all over the place. In this trailer for Silent House, her dad is completely Facebook stalking her and then to make matters worse there's someone or something inside her summer house trying to attack her. This horror film is drawing rave reviews which means it must have a gimmick. Shot on the cheap as one continuous take, Silent House is a horror tale told in real time. Which means the viewer is essentially front row center as the main character spends the film trying to escape while more and more terrifying mysteries are brought into light. The film was sold to Lionsgate for $2 million after building good buzz at Sundance. That may not seem like a lot of profit in movie terms but keep in mind, they didn't need to hire an editor.


'Godzilla' Really Upsets Bryan Cranston In The Latest Trailer

They really got off on the wrong foot. 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.


Dakota Fanning And Elizabeth Olsen Make A Pact To Lose Their Virginity (Not With Each Other) In 'Very Good Girls'

Am I the only person who wasn't part of a virginity-losing pact in high school? Even though this film seems to technically be about a teen sex pact, I really don't think you can call it a "romp." It's more of a thinkpiece. In fact, it seems as though there's very little fun about it, as Elizabeth Olsen seems to be channeling her morose Martha Marcy May Marlene character, and Dakota Fanning seems to be channeling that same character as well. The trailer for Very Good Girls seems to be soundtracked by something of a female Elliott Smith, and there's lots of running, crying and straight faces. It could still very well be a great film, but if you're looking for a female version of American Pie (and isn't that all we're really looking for in this life?), then keep browsing, Buster.
