This latest batch of images gives us time to speculate on the origins surrounding Godzilla in the new flick from Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers. Japan is “officially” under quarantine, and we’ve got the shots and more!
Below you’ll find images of the Japanese quarantine zone (New Westminster), the most interesting of which is a single sign for a nuclear power plant named Janjira. A while back screenwriter Frank Darabont stated that the new film would be dealing with a contemporary event. Is it possible that event is the tragic Tsunami that hit Japan a couple of years ago? Could it have been the reason Janjira melted down? Did this meltdown cause the disaster which finds the city in these images in shambles? Is it also the genesis for Godzilla? Just spitballing here, but if that’s the route chosen to go in, it kind of makes sense. We shall see.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Richard T. Jones, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, Patrick Sabongui, Yuki Morita, Brian Markinson, Juliette Binoche, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, C.J. Adams, and Ken Watanabe star.
Gareth Edwards is directing the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont, and Dave Callaham. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing with Mary Parent and Brian Rogers. Alex Garcia and Patricia Whitcher are serving as executive producers alongside Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.
A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, Godzilla will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd. Legendary Pictures is a division of Legendary Entertainment.
Slated to open on May 16, 2014, the film is expected to be presented in 3D.
