The First Full Godzilla: Minus One Trailer Is Here!

A few months ago, a whole bunch of exciting news about the next Japanese Godzilla movie dropped. We learned that it’s called Godzilla: Minus One and that it’s set to hit US theaters on December 1, and we also got a teaser for the film. It was a great day for Godzilla fans, but it was just the beginning. Toho has since released a few images showing off the big G’s redesign, and now, we finally have our first real trailer for Godzilla: Minus One.

Admittedly, this trailer is still pretty short, so it doesn’t show us too much. But the little bit we do see confirms everything the teaser led us to believe. It’s just about indisputable now that this isn’t going to be another fun kaiju romp like we’ve been getting from the MonsterVerse for the past several years. Rather, Godzilla: Minus One is going to take Godzilla back to his dark roots, and from the looks of it, this movie might even go darker than the original film.

For starters, this trailer doesn’t focus on Godzilla himself. Rather, it’s more about people’s reactions to the monster, so I can’t imagine anybody thinking this is going to be fun. Sure, seeing a kaiju stomp through a city is usually a blast and a half, but when we realize just how many people’s lives the creature ruins, the story immediately takes on a much more grim and somber tone.

On top of that, the very last shot of the Godzilla: Minus One trailer seems to show the monster with burn marks all over his body, and I find that super intriguing. Sure, we’ve seen Godzilla get hurt before, but this looks different. It’s usually another monster that injures him, but as far as we can tell, there’s not another kaiju in sight here.

So what’s going on here? Was it human beings who did that to him? And if so, could that be why he’s so angry and violent? Or is there something more going on here than meets the eye? We simply don’t know, but I can tell you one thing–I can’t wait to find out. 

Godzilla: Minus One hits US theaters on December 1.
