Production begins on ‘Godzilla’ reboot
The Hollywood reboot of ‘Godzilla’ has recently started shooting in Nanaimo, Canada. The film has rising star Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the lead role, with Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, and ‘Breaking Bad’ star Bryan Cranston starring alongside him. Gareth Edwards, (who directed the successful, low-budget horror ‘Monsters’ in 2010) is directing the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont, and Dave Callaham. Shot by multi-award winning Irish cinematographer Seamus McGarvey, the film is set to be released in May, 2014 and will also be presented in 3-D.

Online video contest for upcoming animated ‘Lego’ Movie
Lego fans worldwide registered to the Lego site, ReBrick, will have the opportunity to take part in the growing excitement for ‘The Lego Movie’ by creating a 15-30 second video clip based on its story, in the Lego ReBrick Movie Competition. The winning video could be featured in the film, the first-ever, full-length theatrical ‘Lego’ film. The fan-produced clips will relate to an exciting scene in the film, and using only Lego bricks and non-licensed Lego minifigures, contestants will select a character and set their action sequence in one of their favorite Lego worlds, such as Lego City, Space, Pirates, Western, and others. After building and recording their Lego designs, they will upload the video to YouTube, and bookmark it on the rebrick.com Building Challenge page, where it will be open for voting from the entire ReBrick membership. The 25 videos earning the most “Likes” will ultimately be reviewed for creativity, originality, theme and suitability for the film by a panel of judges. For more information on the rules and guidelines, visit rebrick.it/LEGOMovie.
