It was just yesterday that we received word that Gareth Edwards‘ (Monsters) new take on Godzilla had begun filming in Vancouver.  Today, we get a video greeting from the man himself that is short but certainly sweet—sweet in the sense that Gareth’s a good chap—plus, a batch of tantalizing photos from the set.

Hit the jump to check ‘em out.  Starring Aaron Taylor-JohnsonElizabeth OlsenJuliette BinocheDavid Strathairn,  Bryan Crantson and Ken Watanabe, with a script from Max BorensteinFrank Darabont, and Dave CallahamGodzilla opens in 3D on May 16, 2014.

While details on plot are firmly hush-hush, based on the film’s brief appearance at Comic-Con last year, this is going to be a realistic take on big G—I would say you don’t have to go far for a good example of what to expect with this by looking at Edwards’ previous flick Monsters.

The set photos reveal (unsurprisingly) a slew of military vehicles, including a majorly thrashed helicopter, as well as an airport terminal location, which, as you will see in the video, appears to be in Japan.

While never the biggest Godzilla fan, I can say Edwards is a smart, economical choice as the man to re-imagine the radioactive monster, and with the above cast… man… I think we’re likely to get the best-acted giant monster movie ever.  Or, at least, the best since the 2006 Korean hit The Host.  Check out the photos and chime in with your thoughts below.
