8. Under the Skin

I didn’t love this film, but I enjoyed it. I love the style of this teaser, and its incorporation of the film’s amazing hypnotic score over the movie’s wicked visuals.

Perhaps not as cool as the Comic Con teaser or the Halo jump teaser trailer (both of which were released before 2014), but the first full trailer for Godzilla showcases destruction with Bryan Cranston’s intense voiceover conspiracy theory rant about the end of the world as we know it. We then go into a slow build, a very tense thrilling reveal of the big green monster — without showing to much.
