One of my earliest and biggest childhood fascinations was always Godzilla. Next to Star Wars, Toho's iconic movie monster has occupied a special place in my imagination for as long as I can remember, even as ridiculously awful as some of the movies were.
An effort by a non-Japanese studio to "reboot" the legendary city-stomper on the big screen has apparently been underway for several years, and is finally set to hit theatres next year (2014). A previous attempt at the end of the last century was, to put it very mildly, less than successful. And so a degree of wariness is highly understandable. But I have to say, after watching the following teaser trailer, I am damned excited by the direction they appear to be taking.
If you're at all interested in seeing this movie, I strongly recommend going to see it in the theatre. While there are many cases where I don't think there's necessarily enough of a distinction to justify the extra ticket price, in this case it is definitely worth it to see Godzilla on the biggest screen you can, and for a very specific reason. Being able to not only hear, but also to feel his distinctive roar as it reverberates through the building really does add a whole other dimension to the experience, and makes the whole thing that much more awe-inspiring.
