Godzilla tough for Taylor-Johnson

Aaron Taylor-Johnson stars in the Godzilla remake

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.

Making resources more readily available to the public will be a great use of your time. You're tired of seeing only the most privileged members of the community thrive. Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
