This teaser trailer for Gareth Edwards' Godzilla was first shown at Comic Con and not a lot of people saw it outside of that convention. Now the teaser has appeared on the eve of an all new full trailer we hear is coming soon.
This is the first time I've seen this and it really blew me away. If you've seen Monsters you'll know that Edwards has a talent for grand scale and small human story. I hope that bleeds through on his first big budget reboot.
Here's the trailer!

Elizabeth Olsen is currently going from strength to strength. AFter appearing in indie darlings such as Martha, Marcy, May, Marlene and Kill Your Darlings, she’s hooked upcoming roles in big blockbusters Godzilla and The Avengers; Age Of Ultron. Another of her upcoming films is In Secret in which she plays a young woman forced into a marriage that provides her with no sexual satisfaction whatsoever. Tom Felon plays her loveless husband who makes the big mistake of introducing Olsen to his childhood friend, played by Oscar Isaac. Isaac and Olsen embark on a passionate affair and are soon plotting the murder of Felton’s character. Unfortunately, Felton’s mother (Jessica Lange) becomes increasingly suspicious and Olsen is swamped by guilt.
It looks like a pretty good period thriller with some strong performances. Unfortunately, this trailer gives away a hell of a lot of plot and the sexless marriage parts »

Oldboy arrived in theaters this Holiday weekend, bringing one of Elizabeth Olsen's best performances to the big screen. The in-demand actress has quite a 2014 lined-up, and while doing press for her Spike Lee directed remake, she teased two of her bigger projects, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Godzilla.
As production heats up on Avengers 2, Olsen hasn't been shy about sharing character details. She had previously called Scarlet Witch a 'messed up lady'. She now continues that thought, sharing more with AICN.
"I never read these comics before, not Scarlet Witch. She's nuts, she's crazy. She has more things wrong with her than any character I've ever played. She can tell you where an object has been, she can tell you what your future is, she can connect with the dead and people from other universes, and she's the only person in this universe who's capable of doing that. She's unbelievable; it's so cool. »
Ain't It Cool News chatted with Oldboy star Elizabeth Olsen about her next two films in which she co-stars opposite Aaron Taylor-Johnson - Godzilla and Avengers: Age of Ultron . She talked a bit about her character in Godzilla , for which we should see the trailer soon. "It.s Aaron Taylor-Johnson's film, but the ensemble, we all are somehow connected to Aaron's character," she said, "He's the root, and I play his wife and I'm the person who holds down the San Francisco prospective of it all. I'm a nurse and I work trying take care of this chaos. 'Godzilla' is just so deserving of a good American remake, and I really hope we did it and I really feel like we did." In the spring, she'll also play Scarlet Witch alongside Taylor-Johnson's »
AICN caught up with Elizabeth Olsen and asked her about her spate of upcoming movie roles -- some of which, as we well know here on Cbm, are pretty big to say the least. The Scarlet Witch stuff has been covered before, but Olsen also discusses her part in the upcoming Godzilla remake. We already knew that she'd be playing the wife of Aaron Taylor Johnson's main protagonist, but here she reveals a little bit more about both his character and her own. When asked what we can expect from the movie and if it'll be simply a case of "actors running away and pointing at something in the sky for two hours", she responds: "I do that once. It’s Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s film, but the ensemble, we all are somehow connected to Aaron’s character. He’s the root, and I play his wife and I'm the »
(Cbr) Earlier in the week, Marvel finally made it official: Elizabeth Olsen has joined the cast of "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" as the Scarlet Witch, opposite her "Godzilla" co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson as her on-screen brother Quicksilver. With the cat officially out of the bag, and with Olsen making press rounds for "Oldboy", the actress is freely discussing her reasons for joining Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. “I just love Scarlet Witch. I love her,” she told Moviefone. “It’s so funny because I’m often thinking about all these psychologically damaged people, but when you talk about Scarlet Witch … she is a messed-up »

Now that she's finally confirmed in the role of the Scarlet Witch alongside Godzilla co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen has spoken about joining the line-up of Earth's Mightiest Heroes for Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron, revealing that we'll find a "psychologically damaged" and "messed up" Wanda Maximoff when the hotly-anticipated sequel arrives in 2015.
"I hung out with Mr. Whedon recently," Olsen tells MovieFone. "I'm really excited about this movie. I'm so excited about Scarlet Witch. I have had so much fun reading all about her and I am like learning new words that I had to look up on Wikipedia. I'm really enjoying it... I just love Scarlet Witch. I love her. It's so funny because I'm often talking about all these psychologically damaged people, but when you talk about Scarlet Witch... She is a messed up lady. She has got more shit to deal »

Further to our first report August 2013, Marvel Studios have finally confirmed actress Elizabeth Olsen ("Godzilla") as Marvel Comics' mutant the 'Scarlet Witch', in writer/director Joss Whedon's currently prepping 3D sequel, "The Avengers: Age of Ultron".
"I'm feeling really excited about Scarlet Witch because she's really complicated," said Olsen.
As Sneak Peek first reported May 2012 about the Scarlet Witch appearing in "The Avengers 2", the character and her brother 'Quicksilver' were part of the 'second generation' of Marvel's "The Avengers" comic book team. »

In casting news that will come as a surprise to no one, Marvel Studios has finally decided to confirm that the Godzilla duo of Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass 2) and Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) will join Earth's Mightiest Heroes as brother and sister Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Both had been heavily rumoured for months before Samuel L. Jackson confirmed Olsen's involvement back in October, and Olsen admitting she was set to reunite with her Godzilla co-star earlier this month. Quite why it's taken Marvel so long to confirm their casting is anyone's guess.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron will see writer-director Joss Whedon reuniting with Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), while James Spader (The Blacklist) is set to play »

While everyone is still focused on the upcoming film from Legendary Pictures, a tidbit of news has come our way that is too tasty to ignore. Website Godzilla Fans Universe recently spoke with the executive producer of Godzilla 2014, Yoshimitsu Banno (who also co-wrote and directed the aforementioned 1970s flick), and the man dropped a pretty crazy bombshell.
"I am planning the sequel of Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster now," says Banno. "A new character named Midora will appear as a green saving monster in the sequel. Midora will help battle Hedorah. The new Hedorah comes out from the toxic sludge contaminated by the radioactive waste from an accident at a nuclear power plant. I wish to realize this film with »

For the uninitiated, Spike Lee's new remake of "Oldboy" will be an eye-opener. Based on an operatic, hyper-bleak South Korean thriller of the same name (and both, ostensibly, based on an original Japanese comic book), "Oldboy" follows the exploits of one man (Josh Brolin), who is mysteriously imprisoned for two decades and just-as-mysteriously released to try and seek retribution for his imprisonment and untangle the mystery of why he was locked away in the first place.
Aiding him on this bloody existential journey is a young woman played by Elizabeth Olsen, from the similarly twisty American independent features "Silent House" and "Martha Marcy May Marlene" (she also provided a brief role in this year's Beat Generation drama "Kill Your Darlings"). Olsen's character has an equally mysterious past but just might be the kind of woman who can find her own kind of peace along with Brolin.

Over the summer, word surfaced that Marvel was courting Aaron Taylor-Johnson and then Elizabeth Olsen to join their Cinematic Universe. Joss Whedon’s hugely anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron was in need of a Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, and they were the two in contention for the parts.
For months, it’s been expected that they had joined the project, and all that was left was the crossing and dotting of ts and is. Now it looks like we weren’t wrong, with the studio officially confirming the two for the sibling roles.
It won’t be the first time that Taylor-Johnson and Olsen will be starring alongside each other, with both appearing in Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, due out in May 2014. (Another reason to look forward to Edwards’ similarly anticipated blockbuster, as if we needed one.)
James Spader was the first new cast member for the sequel to be officially »

Elizabeth Olsen has maintained a steady stream of work since her indie hit, Martha Marcy May Marlene, but with films like Godzilla and The Avengers: Age of Ultron on the way, Olsen is going to hit a whole new level and she’s about to begin that progression up with the highly anticipated remake of Oldboy. Olsen steps in as Marie Sebastian, a volunteer nurse who comes face to face with Josh Brolin’s Joe Doucett shortly after wrapping up his 20-year stint in solitary confinement. Even though Joe is understandably rattled and rather off-putting, he strikes a cord with Marie and she agrees to help him assimilate. The thing is, in order to do that, she’ll have to dive into the vicious mystery that’s been plaguing him for the past 20 years of his life. While in New York City ahead of Oldboy’s November 27th release, Collider »

We've already known for awhile that Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen have been cast in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron. But today Marvel made it official with a press release announcing that they will be playing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, respectively. Johnson and Olsen are both great actors, and I think they are going to be fantastic in the movie! I wonder how many films they signed on for.
Here's the press release:
Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen have officially joined the Avengers family as the brother-sister duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the highly-anticipated sequel to 2012's smash-hit "Marvel's The Avengers"! "Avengers: Age of Ultron" arrives in theaters May 1, 2015.
Taylor-Johnson broke out with his roles as Dave Lizewski in the "Kick-Ass" franchise and with his portrayal of a young John Lennon in "Nowhere Boy," for which he won an Empire Award for Best Newcomer. »

The world may have known the casting of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver for awhile, but nothing is set in stone until the almighty gods of superhero movies give the final say. Now, it’s set in stone — Marvel confirms Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass) will be playing super-powered twins Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.
No word yet on how they will be brought into the mega Marvel Cinematic Universe fold, but the addition of the Scarlet Witch seems to suggest the introduction of magic to the alien and tech-dominated McU. »

This will come as little surprise to anyone who has followed recent casting news, saw Elizabeth Olsen on The Daily Show or listened to Samuel L. Jackson. Marvel, however, has clearly waited until all the contractual letters have been dotted and crossed to make the official announcement that the actress will be playing Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.Her casting (well, confirmation) is accompanied by Marvel announcing Aaron Taylor-Johnson as her brother, Quicksilver, even though his participation has been official for a few weeks now. It’ll mark the second time the pair share the screen, after they briefly crop up as a husband and wife in Gareth Edwards’ new Godzilla.In case you’re not sure who the characters are, they’re Pietro (Quicksilver) and Wanda (Scarlet Witch), the twin children of Magneto and his gypsy wife, Magda.
