After months of hype the blockbuster "Godzilla" had its European premiere in London on Sunday.
The film stars Bryan Cranston, who's best known as "Breaking Bad" anti-hero Walter White.
But with "Godzilla" he wanted to do something very different to the part that made him famous.
SOUNDBITE (English) Actor, Bryan Cranston, saying:
"At first I was thinking if I did another drama after "Breaking Bad" it would be compared to it. They would have that in the reviews, I think. But this genre's so completely different."
With their latest big budget film Legendary Pictures gave a British talent a chance to direct his first big budget movie.
It's been a fast rise to the top for Gareth Edwards, who won the Sci-Fi London competition in 2008 and followed that up with the low-budget "Monsters" in 2010.
SOUNDBITE (English) Director, Gareth Edwards, saying:
"As a little kid you grow up going, "Ah yeah, one day I want to make a big movie" and you dream like, "Oh, if you were in Leicester Square". I lived in London and you'd come to these things and you'd look and you'd think, "Ah yeah, one day. One day". I just didn't expect it ever to really happen."
The film sees Lieutenant Ford Brody join a task force fighting back against the monsters wreaking havoc on San Francisco.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays the young Lieutenant, and his wife's played by Elizabeth Olsen.
"Godzilla" will be in cinemas from May 15th.
