Godzilla is definitely the year’s most anticipated movie for most people, but will it live up to the hype surrounding the movie? Of course it will, people have been waiting for a GOOD re-boot of Godzilla for ages. Godzilla is four years in the making and without a doubt is going to be the best Godzilla movie to date, visual wise that it, but does it story behind it, and characters to fall in love with then watch them die.
As the story opens in Japan, we find dedicated nuclear power plant manager Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) so caught up in his work that he forgets it’s his birthday. Sending his young son Ford off to school before reporting to the plant with his wife Sandra (Juliette Binoche), who works in the reactor, Joe begins to suspect that some suspiciously patterned seismic activity may be something more sinister than shifting tectonic plates He’s right, too, because when the plant goes into meltdown mode and Sandra gets caught on the wrong side of the containment door, a massive cover-up ensues.
15-years-later, Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) has become a bomb-disposal expert in the U.S. military. He’s just returned home to his wife Elle (Elizabeth Olsen) and their son Sam (Carson Bolde) when he gets word that Joe been arrested in Japan. Long estranged from his father, who wrote off as a conspiracy theorist for his failed efforts to prove the Japanese government was attempting to hide something in the disaster, Ford nevertheless ventures to Japan to get him out of jail, and reluctantly agrees to join him in venturing to their old home in the quarantined zone. Subsequently taken into custody, the pair end up in the very plant where Joe used to work, and where scientists Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Vivienne Graham (Sally Hawkins) are studying a massive cocoon-like structure that appears to feed on radiation. The situation turns critical when the events of the present begin to mirror the events of the past, and a terrifying winged-creature dubbed a “MUTO” is unleashed. Meanwhile, as the military attempts to devise a plan to destroy the beast, signals indicate that it had been calling out to something before it broke free, and the scientists learn that it has awoken a towering, godlike leviathan that has lied dormant for centuries, and may be mankind’s only hope for restoring the balance of nature.
The film remain to the origin of Godzilla and the film will contain two monsters in addition to Godzilla. Gareth Edward is on as director, he’s known for him work on Monster (2010) and In the Shadow of the Moon (2007). Godzilla is his biggest project thus far with a $160 million budget. Ever trailer that has been release is epic, I didn’t think we would get a full look at Godzilla in the trailers though. Godzilla without a doubt going to be one of the biggest movies of the summer, maybe even the year and hopefully there will be sequels in the future.
It opens this Friday May 16 and I’m going to see it on Saturday with my brother, I advice you to grab a friend or two because this movie should not be missed, but before what do you think of the trailer comment your thoughts and what are you most excited for to see in the movie?
-Have a good one.
