It's different, it's a different set of circumstances than you're used to seeing."
Darabont goes on to explain that, while there's an updated allegory for the new take on Godzilla, he's hesitant to explain what he considers it to be because he doesn't want to alter the interpretation of moviegoers. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
