Teaser for Godzilla Remake Leaked Online

Posted by Jeremy Kahn Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Back at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros gave eager fans a sneak tease at their upcoming reboot for Godzilla. Unlike the travesty that was shown in theaters back in '98, this one looks to recapture the roots of the world's most famous kaiju. Released as Gojira in Japan, Godzilla told the tale of nature striking back at mankind who abused their own power and authority. While the first movie was dark in tone, having to do with mankind facing the consequences of their actions, the many sequels after lost this darkness opting out for a more lighthearted romp. Eventually, the series become nothing more that a monster of the week type of movie with Godzilla facing a new threat every sequel. This all came to a climax with the final movie Godzilla Final Wars where Godzilla faces off against every monster he's ever gone up against, including the Americanized version of himself now re-named Zilla.

Now imagine a Pacific Rim cross over. 

The teaser shown at San Diego was done before any film work began on the film, thus it doesn't represent the final product. However, this doesn't stop the teaser from capturing the same tone as the Gojira we all know and love. It goes so far as to include elements from J. Robert Oppenheimer, contributor to the Manhattan Project.

Since places where the teaser video is being hosted seem to be taking it down, I've written up a description below of what can be found in the teaser.

The teaser pans over the wreckage of a destroyed city, most likely done by Godzilla. We see many people dead, as well as a few survivors. We eventually see a couple of skyscrapers, one with a huge hole in the center reminiscent of what was seen in the '98 movie. From there, we see the corpse of a monster which seems like it might be Anguirus. There have already been talks of more Kaiju appearing in this movie, and this shot seems to solidify this statement. As the trailer comes to a close, we finally get a glimpse of Godzilla, who lets out a loud roar.

Also of note is that this trailer plays a short sound bite of J. Robert Oppenheimer.  J. Robert Oppenheimer is often referred to as the "father of the atomic bomb", having played a major role in the Manhattan Project during WWII.

Disregarding the giant hole in the center of a building, which might be a tongue in cheek reference to the '98 movie, this does what it sets out to do. It captures the essence of what made the original Gojira such a timeless classic.
