    It always amazes me how people know a movie is bad after watching one trailer. As for me, this is the kind of move I want to succeed. I'll defer judgement.

    Aw, me too! I want me a series of big budget Godzillas. I hope this does that. The trailer is very promising.

    It was Godzilla and Lost in Space that disappointed me the most. I liked both movies and wished they'd been more successful so we'd have a series of movies every few years. LiS had a lot of potential, like Trek. A reboot would be fantastic!

    I'm not one to judge a movie based (much) on the trailer, but the trailer I saw for this movie (in front of the Hobbit) was one of the worst trailers I have ever seen. It was so incredibly dark that I had no idea what I was looking at or what was happening. How is that supposed to grab the viewer? From the 1:00 mark on, the vital parts of the trailer are dark and ill-defined. The rest is generic disaster movie stuff. I'll reserve judgment on the movie, but this trailer gets a F.

    Not to defend the thing at all costs or anything.. lol but... maybe your theater didn't have the brightness set right or something.

    I haven't seen Hobbit yet (going next week at christmas) but on youtube the brightness is perfect. Maybe it's just me... I like the color scheme on this film. Very moody... murky atmosphere, like something BIG is kickin up dust! ;) ..maybe they are showing little bits too fast for you on a bigger screen... I'll see for myself next week...

    Generic? Well, a movie of this type is going to have certain things in it... what can they do? Maybe it's a Godzilla fan thing, I don't know.. I'm extremely excited about seeing it next year. And to me this treaser just makes me want to see it more than ever.

    Wow - I never thought I'd find another soul that actually enjoyed LiS as I do (it's not the greatest, but IMO not the failure most remember it as). Maybe we should create a support group.. "Hi, my name is Jason, and I wish there had been more Lost in Space movies..." :)

    Its being made by the same company as Pacific Rim and there are rumours of a Pacific Rim/Godzilla combo sequel if the new Godzilla does well. So it should be along the same vein as Pacific Rim.

    I'm not sure if they should cross the streams...but if they can bring that feeling of massiveness to the new Godzilla, it could be quite a bit of fun.

    I was hoping that Godzilla would be the heroine and some frozen guardian of the world ready to awake when the Earth needs her, trailer looks okay, i am one of those people who enjoyed the 1997 version, i'll probably like this one too.

    @Jason

    I enjoyed Lost In Space too.

    Oh baby!! Now I am psyched for this.
    Edit: Ok, I wanted to add that yeah, there may be some big spoilery stuff in this trailer. Some that are very thinly veiled and others hidden pretty well. But for me, it's knowing those that makes this movie waaaaaay more interesting now. And I hope like hell this won't be tidied up in a single movie.

    Had to stop at about 1 minute. Too much story coming in... but damn. I had chills the whole minute I watched. Remember when they did another Apes reboot? Do we have that here? *smiles with confidence* :D

    THIS is what the 90's Godzilla should have been. Looks epic, and looks like it holds true to Godzilla's Japanese origin.

    It can't be any worse than the last attempt.

    Love the trailer, GZ looks bad ass and according to the poster huge. I am excited about the movie and plan on seeing it. The trailer does make you wonder (see 1:48 in to the trailer,) if there are other monsters for him to fight in sequels. Just my two cents.

    Yes, he did turn out to be a poor contender against the real thing:


    This one looks like it's going in the complete opposite direction:Instead of Goofy Godzilla, we're getting doomed, Snyder-esque CGI'ed, post-9/11 Godzilla of Steel, with Pacific Rim's belief that regular people are as somberly reverent fans of kaiju as they are. :(

    My understanding is that Goji-chan may battle several other kaiju in *this* film.

    My expectations are not too high (I wasn't a huge fan of Monsters), but I hope to be surprised.

    Well, don't get me wrong, but only the Japanese could do Serious Godzilla in the original first movie, because they lived it during the war.
    Here, the Americans want to be serious too, but seems like there's too much of an epic "2012" vibe going on with the brave human fighters and survivors, when we were really more on the monster's side. Especially if he was the one fighting other monsters.
