Opening this weekend is director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla.  Produced by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, the film is a new take on the classic monster and it’s loaded with an awesome cast led by Aaron Taylor-JohnsonElizabeth OlsenBryan CranstonKen WatanabeSally HawkinsJuliette Binoche, and David Strathairn.  For more on the film, watch a featurette on the new Godzilla roar, check out new images, watch 5 clips along with 11 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, or click here for all of our previous coverage.

At last weekend’s New York City press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.  They talked about their favorite moments from shooting Godzilla, going to Japan to promote the movie and the country’s culture that embraces its mythology, their reaction to seeing the finished film for the first time, the positive reviews, and more.  Of course with Olsen and Taylor-Johnson currently working on Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, they also talked about working with Whedon, the set photos, singing multi-picture deals with Marvel, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

    This interview wasn’t very fun to watch. Normally you get to see a lot of the actor’s personality and what it would be like to work with them on set, but everything they said just made them look like observers on every movie they’ve ever worked on.

    i hope they get better with time.

    Lizzy Olsen is the best. Didn’t know Aaron Taylor-Johnson was so awkward.


    number of times they said “like”: over 9000!
