Well one thing to expect is total destruction, it is clear from the 2 and-a-half minute clip that this 'Godzilla' is more terrifying, more powerful and bigger than ever seen before, as it simply annihilates New York City.

As the carnage is shown, which includes a severely damaged Statue of Liberty, an angry voice is heard, pleading to an authority figure to reveal the truth about the great monster, and that voice belongs to 'Breaking Bad's' Bryan Cranston.

"I want to talk to somebody in charge. You're not fooling anybody when you say, that what happened was a natural disaster," he shouts referring to an obvious cover up. "You're lying! It was not an earthquake. It wasn't not a typhoon. Because what's really happening is that you're hiding something out there."

Summing up the obliteration of what fans can expect in the upcoming movie is Ken Watanabe, who portrays a Japanese official, as he warns, "The arrogance of man is thinking Nature is in our control, and not the other way around."

The new trailer also indicates that this is a totally different take on the Japanese monster story and the ability to shown in 3D will add a favourable edge upon its release.

The clip demonstrates how we are in a much more hi-tech age and therefore new concepts and methods will be utilized to try and subdue 'Godzilla', it also focuses on telling the story of the human lives and boosts an impressive ensemble cast to highlight its character-driven aspect.

Along with Bryan Cranston, who will play scientist 'Joe Brody', Aaron Taylor-Johnson stars as 'Lieutenant Ford Brody'. Other cast members include Elizabeth Olsen and Juliette Binoche, who play Brody's daughter and wife, Olsen will also play Johnson's girlfriend. Gareth Edwards, who rose to fame through his independent film 'Monsters', directed the 'Godzilla' reboot.
