Both started out acting in small independent films that put them on the map as serious dramatic talents, but Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olson are taking a different tack with their new movie, where their main co-star is a gargantuan prehistoric sea monster.

In director Gareth Edward's remake of Godzilla, which hits screens in Singapore tomorrow, the pair play a married couple who get caught up in an epic battle between Godzilla and other monsters.

It is a warm-up to their appearance in another big action blockbuster out later this year, the comic book-inspired Avengers: Age Of Ultron, where they play twins with super powers.

Speaking to reporters in New York, they tell Life! that their roles in such projects are just as challenging as acting in more character-driven stories, if not more so.
