Bryan Cranston may have played a monster of certain proportions on "Breaking Bad," but nothing could prepare even Walter White for the horror being unleashed in "Godzilla."

A new trailer released Tuesday for the coming summer blockbuster — aptly dubbed OMGODZILLA by one Facebook commenter — reveals the scale of the destruction brought on by the iconic beast. As we see a flaming airliner on the ground, a skyline being toppled in the distance, and a battered Statue of Liberty, we hear from Joe Brody, the scientist played by Cranston.

"You are not fooling anybody when you say that what happened was a natural disaster," Brody says. "You're lying! It was not an earthquake. It wasn't a typhoon. Because what's really happening is that you're hiding something out there. And it is gonna send us back to the Stone Age."

And Godzilla, which was apparently "awakened" by nuclear strikes aimed at destroying it, is off to a good start on Brody's prediction. Against the backdrop of devastated cities across the country, much of the trailer's footage showcases military efforts to stop the monster: ships are tossed about on giant waves and fighter planes drop out of the sky.

"The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in our control. And not the other way around," says Ken Watanabe's scientist character, Daisuke Serizawa.

We'll see if old Heisenberg can cook up a plan to stop this thing when "Godzilla" hits theaters on May 16.
