Principal photography for Gareth Edward's Godzilla remake began in British Columbia on Monday, and local news coverage and a set video previewed more of the set. The crew is currently shooting in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, an area chosen due to its railways.

Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. confirmed on Monday that actor Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai, Letters to Iwo Jima, Memoirs of a Geisha) joined the film's cast.
