|An extended look at Godzilla is exactly what I don't want|

Warner Bros. released an extended look at Godzilla over the weekend, which is now racing around film websites keen to share the latest trailer. I'm not going to be joining them.
It's not because I'm not interested in Godzilla - far from it. I love Godzilla and look forward to seeing what Gareth Edwards does with the iconic monster. But you know what? I can wait.
I've written about this before, but this banner on The Verge summed it up best when I saw it this morning:
"The best look at the monster yet"? That's exactly what I don't want. I want to see Godzilla fully for the first time in the cinema, where his colossal height will work best. The last trailer included a glimpse of a beast, which already spoiled another potential surprise, so now I'm ducking all videos and pictures as best as I can. But it does beg the question once more: why not save giving us the best look at Godzilla yet until the actual film? Size matters - sometimes, less is more.
Godzilla is out in UK cinemas on 15th May. The latest trailer is easy to find on YouTube.
