While by now everyone knows about the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters movie that’s scheduled to be released next May, fans have eagerly awaited more information. Thankfully, it looks like we don’t have to wait too much longer, since the official trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters went live today.
The synopsis on the website reads as follows: “Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that 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.”
So along with Godzilla, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, it’s now confirmed that the fan-favorite kaiju, Mothra, will be a part of the story. Along with this new bit of info (unless it’s not new and I someone spaced out on it somewhere along the way), comes a brand new image featuring Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown. Incidentally, she has some manner of connection to Godzilla and perhaps monsters in general.
As far as I can tell, there’s not much else on the website, but as we get closer to May 31st, new info will assuredly drop. That said, the question I’m thinking about is how King Kong is going to fit into all this and how the giant ape could stand a chance against the likes of Godzilla and King Ghidorah.
And don’t forget, if you’re at San Diego Comic Con this week, you can try and grab a sneak peak of the trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters at the Warner Brothers Theatrical panel this Saturday, July 21st, at 10:30am.
