A History of American Godzilla Trailers

By Andrew Bridgman / February 26, 2014

Godzilla (2014)

Highlights:
  • Bryan Cranston narrating the SHIT out of a montage of destruction and horror
  • Ken Wantanabe narrating the SHIT out of a montage of mystery and ominous imagery
  • What appears to be a mix of epic destruction, multiple kaiju battling, AND an American-ized Godzilla creature that doesn't look like the T-Rex iguana nightmare from the Matthew Broderick film

 

Godzilla (1998)

Highlights:
  • Pretty nice of them to not actually show their shitty, horribly-designed monster
  • (referring, of course, to Matthew Broderick)
  • Yeah, Hank Azaria's panicked laughter - that's what we want audiences to remember!

 

Godzilla, King of the Monsters! (1956)

Highlights:
  •  Wow, that narrator sure does like overexplaining what Godzilla is and what he's capable of, huh?
  • I know he would less than 2 months old when this film was released in theaters, but why couldn't Bryan Cranston have narrated this too?
