Hellooooo, Badass Bryan Cranston

Just when you thought the "boom" made popular by 2010's Inception had finally expired in popularity, it comes back in the second trailer for Godzilla , this summer's epic blockbuster remake. The trailer, much like the first teaser, features sprawling landscapes being destroyed by the film's namesake, and little footage of the actual beast. Bryan Cranston narrates the two and half minute spot, beginning: "You are not fooling anyone when you say that what happened was a natural disaster. You're lying. It was not an earthquake, it was not a typhoon, because what's really happening, is that you're hiding something out there... And it is going to send us back to the stone age!"

Luckily, the story, which was last interpreted for screen in Roland Emmerich's 1998 version, appears to be far from stone age technology. Director Gareth Edwards, who became a success with his film Monsters (ha!) will focus on the film's human characters, rather than the CGI monsters which terrorizes their lives in the modern day reboot. The film stars Kick-Ass' Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain and Ken Watanabe.

Godzilla is set to be released in U.S. theatres May 16. Watch the new trailer below:
