Theblockbuster reboot features Kick Ass actor Aaron Johnson, Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston, Oscar winner Juliette Binoche and Elizabeth Olsen from Martha Marcy May Marlene. David Strathairn (Lincoln) and Ken Watanabe (Inception) also have key roles as well as Happy-Go-Lucky actress Sally Hawkins.
Speaking last year, Olsen said of the reboot: “It’s definitely not lighthearted. It’s kind of going back to its roots of the original Japanese film.” The new Godzilla movie is being helmed by British director Gareth Edwards, who made his name with 2010’s Monsters, an acclaimed sci-fi flick shot for just $500,000 (£308,000). Warner Bros has set a release date of May 16.
Godzilla began as an Japanese film franchise that ran for 28 pictures between 1954 and 2004. The giant monster has also starred in comic books, novels, TV series and video games. Independence Day director Roland Emmerich helmed a previous Hollywood remake in 1998, but it was poorly received.
