The first trailer for the forthcoming movie on the 60-year-old Japanese lizard conveys a gripping, apocalyptic atmosphere.
Warner Bros chose to kick off the promotion of 'Godzilla' with this dramatic trailer, with stylized images alternately evoking fury, fear and silence.
Gareth Edwards directed the feature, in which scientists and military personnel must put an end to the panic and chaos caused by the monster they created in their labs.
The director, known for directing 'Monsters' (2010), seems to have given more priority to drama and atmosphere than to pure action.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson stars as a soldier sent on a deadly mission against the monster.
Elizabeth Olsen, who will play a twin sister to Taylor-Johnson's character in 'The Avengers 2', plays his wife in 'Godzilla'. Juliette Binoche, Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe also appear in the trailer.
'Godzilla' will arrive in cinemas on 15 May, 2014.
