The new teaser for the Godzilla reboot features Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) demanding answers for an apocalyptic future in a desperate, threatening voice.
Cranston plays Joseph 'Joe' Brody, who is a nuclear physicist. Joseph's son is Lieutenant Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and wife is Elle Brody (Juliette Binoche). The teaser is more of a sound clip with the "2.25.14 10:00 AM PST" on the screen. Cranston is heard spewing his concern about something (Godzilla) that threatens to wreak apocalytpic consequences at someone. The actor works an effective mix of agitation, fear, and anger in his vocal delivery.
"You are not fooling anybody when you say that what happened 15 years ago was a natural disaster alright, it was not an earthquake, it wasn't a typhoon okay," he says. "You're lying because what's really happening is that you're hiding something out there, I'm right aren't I?"
His voice chokes with rage as he screams, "I deserve answers."
The monologuing ends with him warning us that the end is nigh.
"You see, there it is again, this is what caused everything in the first place. Don't you see that?!" he asks. "It's going to send us back to the stoneage. You have no idea what's coming."
The 2014 reboot is being directed by Gareth Edwards and also stars Elizabeth Olsen as Ford's wife and David Straitharn as Adm. Stenz.
The film will hit theaters on May 16.
