Godzilla - Opens May 16, 2014 - Courage Trailer

Some of my earliest memories revolve around being ill and staying home from school. In these instances, my mother would come home from work with a special treat to help raise my spirits, typically a vanilla milkshake from Burger King. I also remember being home sick once during a Godzilla movie marathon, on the couch, vanilla shake clutched between my hands.

I love Godzilla, always have, always will. I may not by the most objective source, then, but I think the new American-made Godzilla film looks absolutely fantastic. The tone and mood of the film have the gravitas that the genre has long needed. Take a look at the latest trailer, embedded below.

Godzilla releases on May 16, 2014.
