Academy-nominee David Strathairn. Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston. Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche. Arthouse-Avengers Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, and Oscar-nominee Ken Watanabe…
The first trailer for Legendary’s 2014 monster movie keeps the gigantic nuclear dinosaur mostly hidden behind veils of smoke, but there’s no doubting he’s got a big footprint. Strathairn air-drops a military unit into a destroyed city, and while we get to meet the heroes tasked with fighting the beast, we witness the wreckage he created. The soldiers announce their presence on the way down with red smoke trails. It’s a noble, heroic mission that sadly reminds me of sprinkling fish food into a fish tank. Bon appetit, ‘zilla.
