The Godzilla franchise stomps on next summer with a new film from Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus director Michael Dougherty. Godzilla: King of the Monsters finds Godzilla in a warm-up match of sorts, going against Mothra, Rodan, the three-headed King Ghidorah, and other monsters. This film, of course, is the lead-up to Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong movie in 2020.
Starring Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Ken Watanabe, and Zhang Ziyi, see the trailer below.
The epic action adventure pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters opens on May 31, 2019.
