Aaron Taylor-Johnson has revealed he has been through the wringer for Godzilla.

The Kick-Ass star plays a Navy lieutenant whose journey home to his wife (Elizabeth Olsen) is blocked by the rampaging creature in Gareth Edwards' monster remake.

"It was a physically demanding role. I'm in helicopters. We're on trucks and trains and we're moving giant missiles. Things are crashing around us," he told Total Film.

"You're getting close to death. There's a lot of stuff that's made it really active.

"There are scenes in this where I've been more emotionally challenged than in any other drama," he added.

Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins and David Strathairn also star in Godzilla, which is slated to open in cinemas this summer.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
