Ahead of the release of Godzilla vs Kong, we spoke to director Adam Wingard about the challenge of making the human storyline as compelling as the titan battle, as well as the Blair Witch trick he used to bring the battles to life.
“On that movie, I used to always have an airhorn on hand. I called it my ‘scare’ horn. If I needed a big jolt from an actor, I’d give them a little buzz with that thing, and it was really effective. So this was like the big monster version of that,” he explained.
