Two For One Trailers: Enormous and Godzilla

Two trailers have come out somewhat recently about the attack of giant monsters, both of which deserve some attention: Enormous and Godzilla.  

There is obviously a difference in the quality of the trailers, but since one is a web series and the other a multi-million dollar blockbuster, it's best not to compare directly. Either way, they both look like great fun for different reasons.  

Enormous is a new web series from Youtube's Machinima adapted from a comic first published in 2012. Interestingly, the series and comic deals with the fallout after everything has collapsed, rather than during it, so we'll get to see a different picture of survival in this scenario. It brings to mind The Walking Dead expect with large, large monsters - ones probably moving a little faster than zombies. It's a powerful trailer and I think the series will be a good one.

Godzilla is understood without explanation, taking on the same plotline as most monster movies, however, this is a damn good trailer and I'm really looking forward to seeing the full film. Cranston's voice echoes through the images, and as always, brings some real gravitas into it all. Yet the best feature is the haunting music throughout the two and half minute trailer, which seems to originate straight from a nightmare. 

Both are worth checking out.

Enormous, adapted from the Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour comic, will premiere March 20 online, starring Steve Brand, Ceren Lee, Garret Coffey, Erica Gimpel, Charles Melton, and Billy Miller.

Godzilla is in theatres May 16 starring Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Sally Hawkins, Aaron Taylor Johnson and Ken Watanabe.
