The spectacular new trailer for the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters is here. The movie is the sequel to 2014’s Godzilla and it sees the legendary monster joined by several other giant creatures, including the fearsome three-headed King Ghidorah.
While the first trailer only gave us fleeting glimpses of the new monsters, this latest one puts the emphasis on the epic action that the movie looks set to deliver. We see Ghidorah emerging from a volcano, the winged Rodan doing battle with jet fighters, and the moth-like Mothra swooping into battle. There’s also a few humans in there, including Stranger Things star Millie Bobbie Brown, The Conjuring’s Vera Farmiga, and Game Night’s Kyle Chandler. But really, this one is about the monsters. Check it out above.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is directed by Michael Dougherty, whose previous credits include the Christmas monster movie Krampus. It also stars Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Ken Watanabe (Inception), O’Shea Jackson Jr (Straight Outta Compton), and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones). It hits theaters on May 31, 2019.
It’s the latest entry in Legendary Pictures’ so-called MonsterVerse, following Godzilla and last year’s Kong: Skull Island. The fourth movie in the series will be Godzilla vs Kong, which is now in production and scheduled for a May 2020 release. The cast includes Alexander Skarsgård (Hold the Dark), Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta), and Demián Bichir (Alien Covenant).
