The first teaser trailer for next year's Godzilla has a minute-and-a-half to wash the taste of the last Americanized Godzilla movie.
Luckily, this glimpse does exactly that, moodily showing off some truly massive devastation and finally revealing the great beast himself.
No matter how many standout human actors appear in next year's remake, the star of Godzilla is the the irradiated reptile himself.
Though lucky fans at Comic-Con got a sense the beast's new look, Legendary Pictures has kept the new Godzilla's appearance secret, showing off naught but teasing looks so far.
That changes today, with a close-up of Godzilla's face making the rounds online and assuring fans burned by the 1998 effort that this Godzilla will get the basics right.
Before he became the new Batman in 2015's Man of Steel sequel, you might remember that Ben Affleck was on quite a tear as a director. You might recall that his last movie, Argo, was a commercial success and a critical smash, winning Best Picture at the Oscars.
If you need to refresh your memory on Argo, then you're in luck, because this December 3rd, Warner Bros. is rolling out an Extended Edition Blu-ray that's chock full of insightful special features.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are utilizing San Diego Comic-Con to push next year's Godzilla remake in a huge way via an ostensibly viral marketing effort that now includes a piece of concept art and a real attraction in proximity to the San Diego Convention Center.
"Basically, for all you Godzilla fans, something very big is headed to San Diego," director Gareth Edwards says in his latest bite-sized update from the set of the Godzilla remake from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.
With the film's viral effort ramping up in anticipation of Comic-Con, there are some goodies from the mystery-building marketing effort. More importantly, perhaps, an official listing for the film's Hall H panel hasrevealed that the title character isn't just facing off with humanity; in next summer's Godzilla, the beast will fight other Toho-style monsters.
You can't really separate the titular beast from his origins as a uniquely Japanese metaphor, and some unofficial images from the set of next year's Godzilla indicate that the remake won't try to completely remove Gojira from his native country.
As of today, the second crack at an Americanized Godzilla remake is now one year away from its May 16, 2014 release date.
Rather than dropping a teaser trailer or some such hype-building, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have instead brought us a tiny new glimpse behind the scenes of this new Godzilla.
How can you tell Godzilla has been to town? Because most of the town will be a smoldering heap of rubble.
A new official image from the set of the new Godzilla remake has stomped online, and though the enormous lizard is nowhere to be seen, the signs of him are everywhere, in smoke, an overturned car, and general devastation.
Principal photography on Godzilla is now under way.
A week from now, it is most likely that director Ben Affleck’s Argo, which will be available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning February 19th, will have won Best Picture at the 2013 Academy Awards.
While the filmmaker was shockingly snubbed of a Best Director Oscar nomination, he and the film have gone on to win almost every award imaginable including Best Picture and Best Director at the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice Awards, as well as Outstanding Cast Performance at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and Outstanding Directorial Achievement at the DGA Awards. Affleck previously won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay along with Matt Damon for co-writing Good Will Hunting, and Argo marks his third directorial effort following the critically acclaimed Gone Baby Gone, and The Town.
