Ahead of the 2014 reboot of Godzilla, the cast of the movie talked about the upcoming film.
Bryan Cranston went on ET Canada and described his experience.
“As a kid, Godzilla was my creature of choice, oh yeah,” he said. “I loved the absolute destructive nature of this beast.”
“They’re taking a very restrained approach to this. Much like ‘Jaws’ did, Steven Spielburg didn’t always show the beast. His essence is present and it’s there … and it’s creepy. So you know the tension will mount.”
Godzilla “doesn’t know how to express himself other than eating people, I don’t know,” said star Sally Hawkins.
The film opens May 16, 2014, in 3D and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, and Juliette Binoche, with David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston.
Taylor-Johnson recently spoke about his role.
“It was a physically demanding role,” Taylor-Johnson told Total Film. “I’m in helicopters. We’re on trucks and trains and we’re moving giant missiles… Things are crashing around us. You’re getting close to death. There’s a lot of stuff that’s made it really active.”
There’s also a comic book coming along with the film.
The comic will be called “Awakening” and will be written by Greg and Max Borenstein, who was the primary screenwriter for the movie. It will come out days before the film is released.
“Delve into an incredible mystery, generations in the making. At the dawn of the atomic age, humanity awakens lifeforms beyond imagination, unleashing monumental forces of nature. This explosive, larger-than-life adventure is the perfect way for fans to experience the new Godzilla before seeing it in theaters,” a description for the book reads, according to ScreenRant.
