Trailer For Gareth Edward's Godzilla Reboot Drops Along With New Stills, Synopsis, And Poster; The King of the Monsters Is Back

In recent years, disaster films have taken the back seat to the likes of superhero movies and teen book adaptions as the major summer blockbusters Hollywood studios have taken interest in, specifically the sub-genre of monster films. While now and then we've seen a film with a monster at the heart of it's premise such as Cloverfield and Super 8, but only recently were the famed kaiju monsters brought back to the big screen brilliantly by director Guillermo del Toro in this year's Pacific Rim. Well now we'll finally get to see the most well known kaiju of all make his grand reemergence in the upcoming Godzilla reboot from director Gareth Edwards (Monsters), and we now have the first trailer, poster, and stills from the film.

Below is the official trailer for Gareth Edward's Godzilla reboot:
As we can see from the trailer, Edwards has definitely set up a much darker and serious tone than the last on screen incarnation we saw of the character back in Roland Emmerich's (White House Down) 1998 Godzilla film. Edwards has decided to move the focus to the military side of the battle against Godzilla, which is something we have yet to see before in previous incarnations. While we don't get any actual lines from the film's starring players, we do know that the film has a pretty impressive ensemble of talent on board including Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Elizabeth Olsen (Oldboy), David Strathairn (The Bourne Ultimatum), Ken Wantanabe (Inception), and lead Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass).
Expectation are pretty high as we approach the release of the Godzilla reboot, as Edward's has been attached to the project for a while, and Warner Bros. is hoping for it to hit bigger than Pacific Rim did in the American box office. While Pacific Rim was able to revive people's interest in the kaiju creatures, the pressure now lies on Godzilla to keep the trend going and bring an all out revival of the famed monster genre. It's worth noting that WB owns both the Pacific Rim and Godzilla properties, and del Toro has expressed his interest in having the two crossover in a future film, so it's always in the realm of possibility.
Most details regarding the film have been shrouded in mystery since it's announcement, and we still have yet to see a full look of the design they've gone with, although the trailer does give us a much better look at what we can expect from the final product. Another key aspect that has been kept under wraps up until this point is whether Godzilla would solely be facing off against the American military in the film, or would there be other kaiju around for him to fight? Well it seems it'll be the later, as has been indicated by a new synopsis that's made it's way online, although it's still unknown what are the specific monsters we can expect to see.
So here's the all new poster for the film, which still doesn't show much of Godzilla, but does give us a better idea of his massive size in comparison to the city:
And the new synopsis and stills:

“An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence”
