Actress Sally Hawkins has described working on Gozilla as “mind-blowing”.

Hawkins will play a scientist in the film and star alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen.

Speaking to Digital Spy Hawkins said, “I didn't actually get to play with Godzilla much. He is quite big and scaly and frightening. I think I saw his eye once on green screen through a window.

"It was a blast. I do mainly small British films so to be planted in Godzilla-land for a few months was amazing."

Godzilla is due for release in May 2014 but you can see Sally Hawkins in Blue Jasmine in theatres now.
