Director Talks A More ‘Realistic’ Godzilla
So far the footage screened for Godzilla at this year’s Comic-Con has shown a take on the movie unlike anything we’ve ever seen. With much strong support behind this picture, there is a building buzz surrounding the Godzilla reboot and director, Gareth Edwards, aims to keep it coming.
When talking to Total Film, Edwards said: “I’ve always been interested in Godzilla and the ideas around him. I really wanted to see another Godzilla film and jumped at the opportunity. My main idea was to imagine ‘If this really happened, what would it be like?’ I want to take a grounded, realistic approach to a Godzilla film.”
What will really makes or breaks this film is the visual effects and creature design. It needs to be done right and to that Edwards gave a semi-personal revealing answer: “I’ve never worked this hard, this long and been this emotionally involved in something that’s lasted only a few seconds since the time I lost my virginity! But the reaction has been amazing and I can’t wait for the fans to see our final product.”
Certainly the name of Godzilla alone will cause movie-goers to flock to the theaters. Toho’s Godzilla franchise is one of the most recognized film creatures worldwide. This destructive green creature as appeared in a series of books, television programs, video games and more than 25 films. With legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni producing, along with Roy Lee, Dan Lin and Brian Rogers, we expect a feature that is sure to not disappoint.
