The 2014 reboot “Godzilla” will get an accompanying book called the “The Art of Destruction” along with a comic book, according to reports.
A press release from Insight Editions, Legendary Pictures, Toho Co., Ltd., and Warner Bros. Consumer Products said that “The Art of Destruction” will be a behind-the-scenes look at making the film, which is slated for release May 16, 2014. The book will be released at the same time as the movie.
“The book is a visually stunning volume that delves into the making of the new Godzilla film, showcases its incredible production art, and includes interviews with its director, key crew members, and cast,” the press release reads for the book.
The movie is starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Silent House”), David Strathairn (“Lincoln”), Ken Watanabe (“Inception”), Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”) and Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient”).
Cranston recently elaborated on his experiences working on the film.
“As a kid, Godzilla was my creature of choice, oh yeah,” he told ET Canada. “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.”
Taylor-Johnson also recently described his role in the film, saying it was “physically demanding.”
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.”
The “Godzilla” comic book– “Awakening”–will release a few days before the movie.
“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.
