Sure, you’ve probably already watched that new Godzilla trailer a few dozen times, but why not have director Gareth Edwards himself walk you through all the monstrous insanity?

Edwards (Monsters) did a 10+ minute sit-down with Empire to break down all the little nods, teases and easter eggs embedded in the debut trailer for his Godzilla reboot. From what we think we saw to what we’re sure we saw, he sets the record straight. It's a good thing, too, because Edwards' interpretation looks to throw some nice twists into the classic mythology.

Considering how long we’ve been hearing about this thing with little to no actual footage, it’s great that Edwards took the time to break down the eagerly anticipated trailer. It’s a fascinating peek into his imagining of the classic monster and the effect it would have on the modern-day world. Seriously, this looks like it could be one of the biggest (pun intended) sci-fi flicks of the year.

Settle in for some city-smashing fun and enjoy.

The new Godzilla opens May 16. Do you like Edwards’ take on the franchise?
