It still amazes me that every single new shot that I see, I love it. I don´t know if I´m more hyped by the creatures or the human story, because, guys, the performances here are going to be not just great for a monster movie but for a dramatic movie. And in fact I´m not surprised, I´m satisfied. Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins and even the little showed David Strathairn are GREAT actors. Besides, they have been directed by Gareth Edwards, who has shown a special interest for characters, the human drama, in the beautiful movie "Monsters". Let add some more: the soundtrack is by Alexandre Desplat, another excellent composer.
I would continue and continue just for remember another time what a great opportunity these people have to bring us a real masterpiece, just as it sounds. Serious, dramatic, intense, thrilling and chilling.
Not since Avatar I have been so excited for a movie, and I really expect that Godzilla doesn´t expect me like that movie did. There´s too much potential mixed with passion. It would be another missed great opportunity!

If you look closely at the trailer, at 22 seconds you can see one of the Mutos in the background.

It just keeps getting better and better!
After watching the WonderCon footage, I´m really REALLY hyped...even more than when the movie was first anounced!!
The tone of the movie is so fitting, it looks like an awesome movie....the drama, the suspention, the characters....and it happens to have the "KING OF MONSTERS" in it...
I hope this movie forfills our expectation and gets to be recognized (cough<oscar>cough)
I mean it has everything to win, best actor, best supporting actor, best special effects, best script, and best director (He is even almost new!)
I know im getting overboard and prizes (specially oscars) are not important at all, but I´m really rooting for this movie and makes me feel like a child again!

That very last cut where the camera pans up amongst the flames and wreckage to a huge arm, body, and tail...AWESOME!!!

I fully agree with you. I'm super hyped and have had the childlike hope that Godzilla will take home the big awards. But if it's a good movie and blows me away (I have very little doubt that it will), I'd be perfectly happy.
