Before you ask, no I don't know why this has been remade (again), and why the poster looks Red Tails-inspired. But we're supposed to really like this re-imagining, if you will, of GODZILLA because it has a really great cast (including Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe) and has updated special effects. So, with that disclaimer, lets enjoy it for what it is--a suspense-filled remake of a classic with eye-catching photography and (possibly) a nuanced story judging by its military undertones in the trailer.
Juliette Binoche, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins (who I'm loving more every day), Aaron Taylor-Johnson and David Strathairn are also part of the cast. Gareth Edwards is making his second feature film debut here, collaborating with writers Max Borenstein, David Callaham and Frank Darabont.
