If you were hoping to get a good look at the kaiju in Gareth Edwards’ upcoming Godzilla, you might have to wait until well into the movie.

In the below Entertainment Tonight Canada interview with star Bryan Cranston, the actor compares the use of the monster to that of the shark in Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. Fellow stars Sally Hawkins and Aaron Taylor-Johnson also talk about their roles while footage from the film and behind-the-scenes shots are shown. Godzilla opens on May 16.

    He’s referring to a suspenseful build up, WE WILL NOT HAVE TO WAIT LONG USE YOUR FUCKING SKULL.

    I hope to God that ET was not showing some outtakes from the final scenes that I just saw. God I hate ET.

    Really? Because by comparing it to Jaws, they’re basically saying we won’t see Godzilla properly until the third act. The finale of Jaws where Brody is throwing out the meat into the water – the ‘we’re gonna need a bigger boat’ moment – is the first time we see the shark properly. That’s not to say they can’t effectively build up Godzilla’s appearance as they do in Jaws, and in fact, it might be more effective to just do the full appearance in the final act or whatever; It’d work better than the ’98 American Godzilla, whose presence on screen for almost the entire movie does not help it. Plus, a lot of the Japanese films only have Godzilla turning up halfway through.
