Godzilla Sends Giant Missiles To Vancouver

By Brent McKnight | 8 years ago

Well, this has to be the eeriest thing you’d ever see rolling through your back yard, especially when you take into consideration North Korean threats to nuke as much of the West Coast of the United States as possible. This video, however, is not nearly as sinister as it appears on the surface. The footage of a train hauling missiles through Vancouver, British Columbia, is a product of Hollywood’s latest attempt to make a Godzilla movie.

The best part about this clip is how cavalier the people filming are about watching a collection of giant weapons roll past their home. They’re more concerned with the baying of the family dog, and their only response is a calm, “It’s got a big missile on it again.” So it doesn’t appear that this is the first time they’ve witnessed such a scenario.

Helmed by Monsters director Gareth Edwards, Godzilla, a reboot of everyone’s favorite Japanese giant-monster franchise, recently began filming in Canada. He’s one of a new generation of indie filmmakers tapped by Hollywood to command big-budget potential blockbusters. This group includes Jurassic Park IV director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed).

Scheduled to stomp into theaters on May 16, 2014, the film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, and Bryan Cranston. In a nod to the source material, reports recently revealed that Akira Takarada, star of the original film, as well as numerous sequels and spin-offs, will have a cameo in the new version.
