Directed By: Gareth Edwards
Release Date: May 16, 2014
Gareth Edwards attempts to collectively wipe away any memory of Matthew Broderick's Godzilla film with one that celebrates the ToHo feel. Keeping true to his promise of delivering stellar creature features, Edwards' version is keeping mum on the plot, but promises to mire the cast and Godzilla in its gritty roots. The original teaser trailer has already 12-million-plus views since being uploaded early last December.
While we'll have to wait awhile to learn more about the picture, the film does have a strong ensemble cast in the form of Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Lieutenant Ford, Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston as Ford's stepfather, Elizabeth Olsen as Ford's wife, and a supporting cast involving Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, Sally Hawkins, and Juliette Binoche.
