Godzilla scenes create Honolulu mayhem

HONOLULU (AP) - No one has seen Godzilla roaming the streets of Honolulu, but fictional evidence of the monster's destruction is all over Waikiki Beach.

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reported that foam cut to resemble broken concrete walls, a downed helicopter and other carnage were part of the scenery put in place by a Warner Bros/Legendary Pictures crew for the filming Wednesday of the latest Godzilla movie.

Movie-makers hired 225 extras. Many wore bandages, splints or neck braces that showed the injuries a monster can hand out.

Off-duty members of the Honolulu Fire Department and 30 Hawaii National Guardsmen were among the extras hired.

Filming began June 30 and is expected to end next week.

The cast includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston.
