The king of all monsters gets a reboot with this production helmed by Gareth Edwards, who gained critical attention with his intimate twist on the giant-creature genre with his feature-film debut, MONSTERS. Frank Darabont (THE MIST) and Max Borenstein provide the script.
Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Sally Hawkins star in this science fiction reimagining of the 1954 Japanese film about the destruction caused by a giant monster. When a devastating event is covered up as a natural disaster, nuclear physicist Joe Brody (Cranston) realises something much more sinister is to blame. Scientists Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (Watanabe) and Dr. Vivienne Graham (Hawkins) reveal that in 1954 a powerful monster was awakened and though 'nuclear tests' were carried out in the Pacific Ocean to destroy it, the creature has now returned. With the US Armed Forces, including Joe's son Navy Lieutenant Ford Brody (Taylor-Johnson), called into action, humanity fights for its survival. The cast also includes Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche and David Strathairn.
