‘Godzilla’ Behind-the-Scenes Footage Revealed Through Canadian News Report
Now that the latest ‘Godzilla‘ remake has its cast all squared away, production has finally begun! Director Gareth Edwards even released a video announcing it, but he didn’t reveal any neat behind-the-scenes footage other than a boring airport shot. Thankfully we’ve got a backup. Canadian news channel CTV got a look at some of the chaos and destruction we’ll get to see once the flick hits theaters on May 16, 2014.
There has still yet to be a sighting of the iconic reptilian monolith, but as far as behind-the-scene production video for ‘Godzilla,’ we’re starting to get our fill. Edwards’ remake began filming in Vancouver last week, and has set up shop in the small community of Nanaimo, where CTV news (via THR) got an early glimpse.
Seen in the footage below are a ton of military personnel (consisting mainly of locals), ravaged jets, heavy firepower, and lots and lots of destruction. CTV points out that the reason for shooting in Nanaimo was its railroad — the crew was looking for a location to turn into a railroad crossing. What do you think this might mean for the film?
‘Godzilla’ stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe, and filming is expected to hit more Vancouver/Canadian locations in the coming weeks. For your behind-the-scenes look at ‘Godzilla,’ check out the news segment below.
