The first teaser for Gareth Edwards’ reboot of the Godzilla franchise has crashed in – and we like it.

Mean, moody and offering a brief glimpse of what the giant creature will look like, the promo certainly looks epic in scale.

With a cast that includes the likes of Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Ken Watanabe, there’s certainly enough acting chops on display.

And director Edwards built up an awful lot of goodwill with his stunning flick Monsters back in 2010, so we have high hopes.

After all, it has to be better than the Emmerich dud….doesn’t it?

Godzilla hits cinemas in May 2014.
