Casual moviegoers may not recognize the name Gareth Edwards, but it's more than likely that this will change in the next couple of years. Not only is he at the helm of one of the upcoming "Star Wars" films, but he's the director of Legendary Pictures’ “Godzilla,” a movie that grossed nearly $500 million worldwide and will likely crack that number when all is said and done (the movie is teetering just on the edge of hitting $200 million at home as well).

The career of Gareth Edwards is one that would make a film school student envious. His first film, "Monsters," was a labor of love, made on a shoestring budget, with the VFX largely done a laptop. The result? A solid indie highlighting a director with a real sense of mood and craft. That effort found him leveraged into the blockbuster "Godzilla," and no matter what you thought of it, the movie was a huge smash, opening last weekend over $90 million at the box office. So what does Edwards do next? He's doing to Disneyland. Kinda.
