A Little Godzilla Background…
For those of you who are hesitant about the upcoming Godzilla, let me give you a little background on the director.
This will be Gareth Edwards’ first big budget film. Previously he’d worked in special effects and directed a few television series.
That may sound like a potential disaster, but Monsters turned out brilliant. While ‘alien invasion’ is the theme, the story centers on the two characters as they trek through the infected area of Mexico, trying to return to the USA. It’s a slow-paced, thoughtful film about survival and the human heart.
And knowing what Edwards brought to Monsters, I am not one bit worried that he will create an amazing Godzilla film.
After all, it’s been fifty years since the last great Godzilla movie – we’re due!
