"The great thing with a project like 'Godzilla' is that when you’re doing a movie like this that involves a monster that’s so beloved, you suddenly get access to the greatest visual artists out there working today. So I was very lucky in terms of that," director Gareth Edwards told Bloody Disgusting last summer. "...in terms of designing 'Godzilla,' we spent about an entire year just working on that aspect alone. You never quite feel like you have enough time but I wouldn’t change a single thing with the design. I’m so incredibly happy with it."

And that's not all he has to be happy with. He's got a much better cast than this kind of thing usually gets, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche and Sally Hawkins all featuring, but moreover, this just looks very promising. The first trailer was pretty damn solid, and this new one—well, we'll let you tell us what you think below.

"Godzilla" rises from the deep on May 16th. Watch below.
