Stomping its way into our theaters and hearts this month, comes the latest American adaptation of the classic Japanese monster film, Godzilla. When humanity is threatened by a destructive force of nature that not even Walter White can stop, our only hope comes in the form of Godzilla, a giant, over-weight lizard with a penchant for roaring and leaving Godzilla-shaped holes in the sides of buildings. The film opens nationwide May 16, but The A.V. Club has an opportunity for you to attend an early screening May 12, at 7:00 p.m. here in Chicago.
