HEISENBERG vs GODZILLA: New Trailer released; Richmond-shot movie comes out May 16

A new trailer for Godzilla was released on Tuesday, three months ahead of its official release date, schedule for May 16, 2014.

The movie – which, of course, shows the cinematic legend-slash-Japanese monster tearing up New York City's cabs, buildings, and subway system – was filmed in Richmond, B.C. and elsewhere in Vancouver in 2013, at the city's Convention Centre, BC Place, and at Cypress Mountain, as well as on Vancouver Island and in Coquitlam. From June to July, Godzilla was also filmed in Hawaii and on Honolulu's Waikiki Beach.

There was a first trailer released on YouTube in December, but Tuesday's clip shows more of the plot, not just scared faces and a platoon of soldiers parachuting (for some reason) down on top of the monster's body. In the 2014 film, Godzilla and his new war path is the result of testing and nuclear bombing in the South Pacific, done during the 1940's and/or 50's.

The movie stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, and Juliette Binoche.
