A huge threat...
IGN reports that director Gareth Edwards screened twenty minutes of Godzilla in London and also participated in a Q&A. Five scenes from the film were shown, these include an incident at a power plant, an interrogation, a sequence in Hawaii, an action scene in and around a train and the "Halo jump" from the teaser.
Here are highlights of the Q&A:
- Edwards liked that the 1954 film was a serious take on a monster movie and that's what he wanted to do.
- The story is about man vs nature, and how man cannot defeat nature. It's also about a family that was "torn apart" by a natural disaster in Japan fifteen years ago.
- Gareth said he hadn't seen Breaking Bad when he hired Bryan Cranston. He wanted to work with him because of Malcolm in the Middle and an episode of Airwolf.
- Godzilla is 350 feet high, the biggest Godzilla yet. This was selected so he could be tall enough to be seen from anywhere in a city but small enough that he can still be obscured.
