Godzilla battles the monsters and saves the mankind



A thrilling 3 D action film featuring a fully computer-generated Godzilla.

An impressive attempt to revive Godzilla who is shown battling the monsters and saving the mankind from a catastrophic destruction.

The world’s most revered monster is reborn as Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures unleash the epic action adventure, directed by Gareth Edwards.

In 1999, scientists detect siesmic activities the Janjira Nuclear Plant near Tokyo, Japan. Plant supervisor Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) sends his wife Sandra (Juliette Binoche) and a team into the core to look for damage.

There is a sudden explosion in the plant and a radiation leak. Sandra and her team are not able to escape, and the plant collapses into ruin. The disaster, attributed to an earthquake, results in the evacuation and quarantine of the Janjira area.

Fifteen years later, Joe’s son Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) living in San Francisco, United States, with wife Elle (Elizabeth Olsen) and son Sam (Carson Bolde) gets a call about his father being arrested for trespassing in the quarantined area, Ford travels to Japan to assist him. Intent on discovering the true cause of the catastrophe, Joe convinces his son to accompany him to Janjira for Sandra’s sake, where they discover no signs of radiation.

The father-son due is again arrested by local security and taken to a secret facility built within the power plant’s ruins. There is another explosion and in the chaos Joe Brody dies and then Ford joins a US Navy team to track the monster, using the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga (CVN-88) as a base of operations.

Aboard the Saratoga, they discover that the cause of tremours and damage was a MUTO (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism), an ancient creature from a much earlier time which feeds off radiation and radioactive material. As the earth’s radiation subsided it moved underground and put itself in a cryptobiotic state.

A larger creature, named “Godzilla” who fights the MUTO, is also discovered by the scientists. Now the Godzilla fights the MUTO couple and restores balance on earth.

Godzilla is a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe- inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless.

The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston.
