"Godzilla" reboot trailer pits man against monster

Ominous music, serious dialogue, big-budget special effects and a certain monster await those watching the newly-released teaser trailer for "Godzilla."

The teaser, released Tuesday, is the first look we’ve gotten at the reboot from British director Gareth Edwards and starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Sally Hawkins, Juliette Binoche and Ken Watanabe.

It opens with a military leader speaking to his troops as they are about to jump out of a plane into a disaster-ravaged city.

"Frankly, none of us have ever faced a situation quite like this one before," he warns them.

On the ground, there's chaos, destruction and a lot of scared-looking people. And finally, at the end of the trailer, the camera pans up to show the creature causing it all.  

"Godzilla" opens in theaters on May 16.
