Warner Bros. recently screened 'Godzilla,' the Gareth Edwards-directed reboot of the Toho classic, for select members of the press (insert self-congratulatory back pat). Though the rest of the world still has to wait until the beast stomps into theaters on May 16, the studio released a hefty photo gallery of 29 images (including some behind-the-scenes moments) from the film, in addition to teasing some bits about the future of the franchise.
One of our most anticipated films of the year is Gareth Edwards' take on 'Godzilla,' which stars 'Breaking Bad''s Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, and will hopefully avoid the pitfalls of the previous American version. Now there's a behind-the-scenes look, and it offers Cranston a chance to get goofy.
It's that time of the year: time for top 10 lists, time to start gearing up for awards season, and picking the contenders and ensuring we shout their names in all caps from behind our laptops, and a time for critics to champion our favorite movies and performances -- which is why I think it's time to take a look back at my favorite female-centric (and gender politic-centric) films and female performances of 2013.
