Cloverfield was the best Godzilla film ever released solely because it showed that if a giant alien/monster surfaced on the coast and started destroying major metropolitan cities, there’s nothing humanity could do about it. The notion that all Godzilla films are amicably resoled in the end is entirely too Disneyish. Short from dropping a nuclear device on the creature (which would consequently cause permanent radioactive fallout in heavy-populated urban areas), humans really don’t have a weapon that could take out something that colossal.
Forget an unlikely zombie apocalypse, preppers across the world should be getting equipment for a gargantuan alien reptile that has the ability to tear down buildings with a single swipe and spit out fire from its mandible. In the grand scheme of things, this is a more likely scenario than the dead reanimating with super-human powers that gives them the strength to tear through flesh with one bite.
Check out the official trailer for Godzilla released today, and props to stevemcawesome for the +100 news tip.
