First Look: Godzilla roars back into movie theaters

What: “Godzilla”

Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston

Writer: Max Borenstein

Director: Gareth Edwards

The story: Godzilla battles giant monsters to protect Earth in this 60th anniversary celebration of the beloved creature.

The buzz: Japanese fans already are complaining that this Godzilla is too fat. But it would take a lot more than an extra chin or two to keep this one from at least being better than that 1998 monstrosity starring Matthew Broderick.
