It’s good to see things going smoothly, at least for one day. Production began yesterday on Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.’ Godzilla reboot, and director Gareth Edwards has officially made the leap from small-budget independent filmmaking to big Hollywood directing. To commemorate this milestone in Edwards’ career, the 37-year-old British director made a special video on the set of Godzilla. Watch the video below:
You have to love how fast information travels these days. After only one day of shooting on the Godzilla production, there are already a small handful of leaked set photos surfacing on the Internet. It seems like the first day of shooting mainly took place at Vancouver International Airport in Canada. While there are no leaked images of Godzilla himself, or any members of the cast, the wrecked helicopter is a sign of the destruction this film will feature. Take a look at the leaked set photos courtesy of Godzilla-Movie.com and YVRShoots.com below:
The Godzilla reboot could be one of the biggest movies of summer 2014. It will also serve as the follow-up to Gareth Edwards’ directorial debut, 2010’s Monsters. Screenwriter and ex-Walking Dead showrunner Frank Darabont revised the final version of the screenplay, previously worked on by Max Borenstein, Dave Callaham, David S. Goyer, and Drew Pearce.
The film features an all-star cast of foreign, indie, and art-house actors including Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, and Bryan Cranston. According to the director, the reboot will be a realistic take on the original Japanese source material.
Godzilla will hit theaters everywhere on May 14, 2014, in 3D.
