The narrative picks up in 1999, when the Brody family, Americans contracted to work at the Janjira nuclear plant in Japan, drop off their son at school and head to work, only to be torn apart when a sudden earthquake causes the plant to collapse. Fifteen years later, Joe Brody convinces his son Ford, now a US Navy lieutenant, to help him investigate the Janjira collapse more closely, which brings them into the middle of a conspiracy involving the organisation known as MONARCH and the rekindling of an ancient conflict between giants that could threaten the safety of the world.

** Trailers heavily featured Bryan Cranston of ''Series/BreakingBad'' fame. His character is important in the beginning of the film, but [[spoiler: dies pretty quickly]].

** Trailers heavily featured Bryan Cranston of ''Series/BreakingBad'' fame. His character is important in the beginning of the film, but [[spoiler: dies pretty quickly]]. This however isn't the case in an earlier screenplay from 2012 where Joe was called "Nathan Brody" and he was Ford's stepfather.



* AdultFear: You child is on an evacuating vehicle when a giant monster suddenly rises from the ocean, and the Navy starts attacking it. Stenz is understandably worried when he realizes Godzilla's current location is nearing the Golden Gate Bridge.

*** All true, though traffic across the Oakland Bay Bridge is notoriously bad given that it carries three times the daily traffic that the Golden Gate Bridge does, and there are many times when a route from Oakland->Richmond Bridge->Golden Gate Bridge->SF is quicker than the Oakland->Bay Bridge->SF. If Sam had to be evacuated from western San Francisco, it will almost always be faster to go north first, especially if the goal is to leave the city as soon as possible rather than drive from the western side to the eastern side where the Bay Bridge is.

* RealityEnsues: When Ford [[spoiler: blows up Hokmuto and Femuto's nest, he is flung several feet into the air by the explosion which leaves him with a broken leg and, in the novelization, internal bleeding]].

* WindowsOfTheSoul: After Godzilla kills the male MUTO, a skyscraper falls on him, and he and Ford see each other eye-to-eye. Ford looks at Godzilla in awe while the look in Godzilla gives Ford a peaceful expression. In the novelization, it's elaborated that Ford is awestruck by the intelligence he sees in Godzilla's eyes.

''Godzilla'' is Creator/LegendaryPictures' 2014 ContinuityReboot to the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' franchise, and the second ''Godzilla'' movie produced in America, following the [[Film/{{Godzilla 1998}} 1998 remake]]. It is also the first ''Godzilla'' film to be made since ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' 10 years earlier, as well as the first ''Godzilla'' movie to receive an American theatrical release since ''Film/{{Godzilla 2000}}''. It's directed by Creator/GarethEdwards (''Film/{{Monsters|2010}}''). [[RevisitingTheRoots It takes a great deal of inspiration from]] [[Film/Godzilla1954 the original 1954 film]] over the {{Camp}} {{Toku}} movies of the late Showa era [[PopCulturalOsmosis that most Western audiences are familiar with]]. The film also shares several similarities with [[Film/{{Godzilla1994}} the unused 1994 script]] for the first American ''Godzilla'' movie to a lesser degree.
