“Godzilla” is still the King of Monsters. In the least surprising news of the week, Deadline reports a sequel is already in the works. The film opened this weekend to $93 million so it would have been bigger news if Warner Bros and Legendary decided not to move forward on a sequel. Gareth Edwards made a giant leap from his breakout micro-budget alien invasion thriller “Monsters” to taking on the most famous movie monster of all time, but by all accounts did it very successfully, with the film earning $20Read More

With its release just weeks away, yet another trailer for Gareth Edwards‘ “Godzilla” – starring Aaron Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, and Bryan Cranston – has debuted. The latest trailer reveals not only a new flying monster but also a major tidbit about 45 seconds in when a character off the screen reveals to Johnson’s Ford Brody that Godzilla is in fact a “god” and not just the skyscraper-sized, classic Japanese monster we’ve all become familiar with in past reincarnations. If that is the case, then it putsRead More
The cast and crew of the “Godzilla” reboot speak for the first time and take us behind the scenes of the reboot that is sure to be incredible and epic. Director Gareth Edwards and producer Thomas Tull want you to imagine this being real, turning on CNN and seeing Godzilla in some shaky cell-phone footage, while the cast – Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen – talk about how the filmmakers tried to make a movie that even today’s cynical audience will still be surprised and impressed by.

On the biggest day of WonderCon 2014, movie studios brought their A game and their most exciting new footage to show off from upcoming tentpole pictures. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” continued to tell of the struggle between apes and humans, new YA franchise hopeful made its presence known a la “The Maze Runner” and there was even the very first footage anywhere shown of Matthew Vaughn’s latest comic book adaptation, “Secret Service,” which came close to winning the day, but that title has to belong to GarethRead More
“Godzilla” roars and stomps into town and Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen are forced apart in the newest :30 second TV spot for Gareth Edwards’ reboot of the classic Japanese monster movie. “Nature has an order” is the theme of the new spot, which seems to purport that when that order is thrown out of whack, you get giant dinosaur-like creatures roaming the cities and husbands and wives (not just Johnson and Olsen, but his parents – played by Bryan Cranston and Juliette Binoche – as well) are separated andRead More
More backstory, more destruction and more danger for Bryan Craston, Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen are showcased in the newest, longest look at Gareth Edwards’ reboot of classic monster movie “Godzilla.” It starts with a nuclear power plant meltdown, but “this is not a natural disaster” seems to indicate this is not where the monster is born, merely a stop on his path of rampage. And poor, poor Juliette Binoche appears to be an early victim. No solid plot details just yet, but this continues to look more awesome withRead More
Aaron Johnson
By this point we’ve already gotten used to seeing Bryan Cranston absolutely dominate all the trailers for Gareth Edwards’s “Godzilla.” But in a newly-released trailer, he joins Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as they take a back seat to the classic Japanese movie monster. While the past trailers have had us clueless as to which cast members had the leading roles in the film, this latest trailer suggests that the film will be more of an ensemble effort. Much like the previous trailers, however, we continue to be teased withRead More
While Bryan Cranston‘s presence in anything is always undeniably strong, we at Up and Comers are also paying close attention to his two young up-and-coming co-stars Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen. The two join forces with Cranston to take on the classic Japanese movie monster in the Gareth Edwards-directed “Godzilla” reboot – and a new trailer for it has debuted today! Just like the previous two trailers, this one continues to tease us with a visual spectacle as well as more of Cranston’s super intense monologue. While it’s uncertain atRead More
