Over the weekend, watching the trailer for Michael Dougherty's follow up to Gareth Edward's 2014 Godzilla (which I loved) literally brought tears to my eyes. It was as if every fantasy I imagined as a little boy sprang to life in less than three minutes.

One of my very earliest memories in all my life is watching Godzilla rise out of the ocean in ToHo's 1954 (Americanized in 1956 with Raymond Burr) masterpiece "Godzilla." I became a lifelong Godzilla fan, collecting toys and movies and playing video games of one of the most globally recognized icons in - a love that has never left me.

Godzilla has always been an allegory for humankind's folly - our narcissism in the face of nature. Originally intended to showcase the horrors of the atomic age through the lens of the Japanese people; the core of the story is intact here - we are guests on this planet, and at the mercy of natural forces more powerful than we can ever hope to be. Bow down before your King.

@wbpictures @legendary - please take my money!! And thrilled at the announcement of the brilliant @bearmccreary scoring next year's movie. And a brilliant cast including some of my favorites Kyle Chandler, @verafarmiga and @milliebobbybrown -- I cannot wait to be in the darkened theatre for this.
