Film: GODZILLA (3D)
CAST: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston
Director: Gareth Edwards
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic ‘Godzilla’, this big screen adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
Director Gareth Edwards describes Godzilla as an anti-hero: “Godzilla is definitely a representation of the wrath of nature. The theme is man versus nature and Godzilla is certainly the nature side of it.
You can’t win that fight. Nature’s always going to win and that’s what the subtext of our movie is about. He’s the punishment we deserve.”
The sound designers used a 12-foot-high, 18-foot-wide speaker array to blast Godzilla’s roar at a hundred thousand watts, to get a good idea of his vocal power and strength.
According to Bryan Cranston, who plays Joe Brody, Gareth Edwards was inspired by 1975 blockbuster film Jaws in that “the film does not immediately show the beast, but rather build up to its appearance while still delivering an eerie and terrifying off-screen presence.”
