This week, the world’s most revered monster is reborn as Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures unleash the epic action adventure ‘Godzilla.’ From director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless. ‘Godzilla’ stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson as US Navy Lieutenant Ford Brody, Ken Watanabe as Dr. Ichiro Serizawa, Elizabeth Olsen as Elle Brody, Juliette Binoche as Sandra “Sandy” Brody, Sally Hawkins as Dr. Vivienne Graham, David Strathairn as US Navy Admiral Stenz, and Bryan Cranston as Joseph “Joe” Brody. ‘Godzilla’ opens on May 15th in the UK and May 16th in the US.
I understand you got your first taste of the level of realism Gareth Edwards wanted to bring to ‘Godzilla’ when you first saw the evocative teaser piece he’d made. What were those initial conversations with him like about you joining this huge movie?
Elizabeth Olsen: Gareth’s approach to ‘Godzilla’ is what hooked me, and how it reflected some of the imagery of disasters we’ve seen around the world. What my character Elle deals with in this film taps into what it’s like for the people caught in these kinds of events, and the lengths you’d go to in order to save the ones you love. And the teaser he showed me, I was hooked! I freaked out when I saw it.
I grew up watching ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Lord of the Rings,’ I love those films and I had a brother who’s a comicbook and sci-fi fanatic – who shoved things down my throat growing up (laughs). And I enjoy it and I love that stuff, so I love being a part of something that is fun to watch and is a crazy experience, you know? Then when I met Gareth, and he said it was character driven, I just thought I was in great hands and I was. I love how it connects the different countries really well and I think it has a really great smaller story to it all, that represents the repeats of generations, and family, and the importance of family – it’s not just about monsters.

The synopsis given for ‘The True American’ is as follows: ‘The True American’ meticulously reconstructs two lives that collided in horrific fashion. In the charged, angry days after 9/11, self-styled “American Terrorist” Mark Stroman murdered two immigrants in Texas, while a third man survived being shot in the head during Stroman’s spree: Raisuddin Bhuiyan, a Bangladesh Air Force veteran, was working at a Dallas-area convenience store as he established himself in America.
