Godzilla clip prepares for battle, everything to know before the premiere

Fans have been waiting months for the epic return of ‘Godzilla,’ and the same fans have endured countless teaser-trailers, movie stills, and promotional pictures all leading up the premiere of Godzilla in theaters.
 
Godzilla is easily one of them most iconic monsters to have ever graced the big-screen, and this installment to the franchise has Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures teaming up for what looks like, Godzilla’s greatest film to date.
 
The film was directed by Gareth Edwards (“Monsters”) and stars a very impressive cast including Aaron Taylor-Johnson (“Kick-Ass”), Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai,” “Inception”), Elizabeth Olsen (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Oscar winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Cosmopolis”), and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), with Oscar nominee David Strathairn (“Good Night, and Good Luck.,” “The Bourne Legacy”) and Bryan Cranston (“Argo,” TV’s “Breaking Bad”).
 
The film is based on the screenplay by Max Borenstein, as the story is from David Callaham, and of course based on the character “Godzilla” owned and created by TOHO so very long ago. Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing with Mary Parent and Brian Rogers. Patricia Whitcher and Alex Garcia are serving as executive producers, alongside Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira. A short clip released from the studio preps audiences for the sheer size of the beast.
 

 
Behind the scenes the cast is equally impressive, the creative team includes Oscar-nominated director of photography Seamus McGarvey (“Anna Karenina,” “Atonement”); production designer Owen Paterson (“The Matrix” trilogy); editor Bob Ducsay (“Looper”); Oscar®-nominated costume designer Sharen Davis (“Dreamgirls,” “Ray,” “Django Unchained”); and Oscar®-winning visual effects supervisor Jim Rygiel (the “Lord of the Rings” films). The score is being created by Oscar®-nominated composer Alexandre Desplat (“Argo,” “The King’s Speech”).
 
The film will be released on May 16, 2014 in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters across the globe.
