Warner Bros. and Legendary are releasing teases and trailers and clips for Godzilla like it’s the most anticipated monster movie of the year or something.

This new clip makes a strong case for the Gareth Edwards-directed reboot. It features Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and military man Admiral Stenz (David Strathairn) discussing their plan of attack: sic the scientist’s “alpha predator” on the titular beast.

“The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in their control, and not the other way around. Let them fight,” Serizawa says.

And then we see Monster No. 2 in all of its scaly, winged glory. Is it Rodan? A Muto called Hokmuto? Take a look and speculate for yourself:

Godzilla hits theaters May 16.
