On the even of the trailer premiere (Tuesday 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT), Warner Bros. gave USA Today the first three images from Godzilla, one of which shares our first ever official look at the giant green monster!

Monsters‘ Gareth Edwards directs the all star cast including Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, Yuki Morita, and C.J. Adams.
“To me, he’s like a force of nature, like the wrath of God or vengeance for the way we’ve behaved,” Edwards told the mag. “If this really happened, it would be like Sept. 11.
“I want it to be epic. I want to get the hairs on the back of your neck up.“
They also confirm that the Monsterland conceit of the 1968 Godzilla flick Destroy All Monsters also plays into Edwards’ film, with its exploration of mankind having to deal with a reality full of huge, deadly behemoths — the director teases that there is more than just Godzilla smashing around.
In theaters May 16, 2014, an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
