New Godzilla: King of the Monsters Trailer Surfaces

The big monster smackdown is getting closer, as Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released the second Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer. The sequel to Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla from 2014, King of the Monsters features the iconic Toho lizard facing off with some of his most famous foes. Directed by Michael Dougherty and releasing on May 31, 2019, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, and Bradley Whitford. Check out the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer below…

Every so often you feel like something was made just for you; I feel that way about this Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer. I didn’t much care for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, and King of the Monsters looks like it wants to fix my big problem with it by delivering some great monster action. Gareth Edwards being replaced by Michael Dougherty goes a long way towards assuaging my fears in this area too; Krampus is a great horror movie – and a great Christmas movie – that sacrifices neither action nor character development. And if you grew up watching Godzilla movies as I did, this Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer will make you smile as it unleashes some of Toho’s other big monsters. Seeing Rodan and Mothra rendered with beautiful modern effects is exciting, but nothing compares to the reveal of Ghidorah. His was always a marvelous design, and the improved visuals make him look every bit the terrifying threat he should be. I was also glad to see actors I didn’t know were in this movie (Charles Dance! CCH Pounder!). They’re continuing the notion that Godzilla is mankind’s protector, one of the more fascinating aspects of the 2014 film; I wonder what they’ll do with the others. Mothra was always the most benevolent of the Toho monsters, and Rodan – after their requisite initial fight – was a sort of sidekick for Godzilla; will they make them bad guys this time out? Or will they all team up to fight a greater enemy, a la Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster? It also seems the name given to the monsters has changed from MOTOs to Titans, which is a definite improvement. I’m all set for this one.
