Yes, Godzilla is remake, but it looks to be a particularly epic one. The monster is still in Japan, but this time the U.S. government is trying to cover it up. Obviously, that doesn't go so well. It's got a lot of respected stars like Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe and Kick-Ass' Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
The plot centers around the titular beast against "malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence," whatever that means. Warner Bros. has released the first clip from the monster flick, and it features said creatures—they seem nice!
Godzilla hits theaters May 16.
