Godzilla Reboot Minimizes Green Screen

Think the upcoming “Godzilla” reboot at Warner Bros. Pictures will be just another green screen heavy, mostly CG animated summer blockbuster? Think again.

Talking with Total Film (via Digital Spy), actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson says director Gareth Edwards is trying to film as much practically as possible:

“The Godzilla crew is such a small group of people that it feels more like an independent movie than anything I’ve ever worked on.

I’ve hardly done any green screen stuff for it, he’s [Edwards] really clever at doing the special effects. We’ll shoot everything raw on location, on the streets, and he’s going to put it all around us.”

He also briefly talked about his training for the role:

“There’s an etiquette for guys in the military, so there was training for that, how to hold guns and how to run and to talk to other officers. I love all that.”

After wowing the Comic Con crowds last year with a proof of concept reel, the film is back in San Diego next weekend where more footage is expected to be shown off.
