When you’re dealing with a big budget iteration of a property involving a ginormous monster, you’re gonna have to utilize a significant amount of visual effects. However, as seen in a new exclusive clip from the bonus features found on the Godzilla Blu-ray, director Gareth Edwards made sure that even though his titular character would be created in a computer, the film would be grounded in reality. This clip sees Edwards discussing the importance of shooting on location in Hawaii and how they used a lot of real-world locations in concert with the VFX to create the illusion of the monster’s destruction. I think they did a bang-up job and I’m very much looking forward to seeing what other Godzilla goodness is in store for us in the sequel—after Edwards directs a little something called Star Wars first, that is.
