Toho Thinks Godzilla (2014) Is Fantastic: New Images & Plot Details



We get a couple of new images and some details for Godzilla from the latest issue of Total Film magazine.

There is a promo picture featuring Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as well as a pic of director Gareth Edwards on set (see below).

Spoiler warning.

Details in the article include that half way through the movie, Godzilla makes his way from Japan to Hawaii to San Francisco.

It's stated that the Hawaii sequence is when the audience will get their first frontal look at Godzilla and features 300 extras all said to be wounded.

Total Film also gives us a nice run-down of the plot:

There is a pre-title sequence set in 1954, and then the movie jumps to 1999 where disaster occurs at a Japanese nuclear power plant which is home to Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston ) and Sandra Brody (Juliette Binoche ). What exactly caused the disaster remains a mystery, and then the movie jumps forward 15 more years ahead with Joe Brody still searching for answers leading him to meeting scientists Watanabe and Sally Hawkins as well as military commander David Straitharn. It's said that Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) now becomes the principal player in the movie (presently in Hawaii), who is Joe Brody's estranged son and wants to get back to his kid and wife (Elizabeth Olsen) - both who are in San Francisco when Godzilla arrives in Hawaii.

It's also said that Godzilla stands at 350 ft. tall because "it's as big as you can go while still allowing him to stand behind skyscrapers."

And regarding if Godzilla is a good guy or bad guy?

"Is Godzilla good or bad?" Edwards questioned with a smile. "Is a hurricane good or bad? Godzilla is a force of nature and anything else in the movie represents our abuse of nature. Godzilla comes in to put things right."

Edwards also let it be known that Toho saw the film.

"They saw it yesterday and I got an e-mail saying they thought it was fantastic!" he said. "So that was a relief."




"Godzilla" opens May 16, 2014 in 3D starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. The screenplay is by Max Borenstein and Dave Callaham.


An epic rebirth to Toho's iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world's most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
