Warner Bros. is gearing up for their summer blockbuster Godzilla: King of the Monsters with a final look at what’s in store for our favorite kaiju. The final trailer features some awesome action!
In the trailer, we get a proper introduction to the Titans Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. These three are moving together as a pack, causing panic and destruction, set to “Somewhere over the Rainbow.” So what’s humanity to do? Wake up Godzilla.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Michael Dougherty said this film takes place five years after 2014’s Godzilla. “It follows the mysterious scientific group known as Monarch as they attempt to understand why Godzilla and his kind are reappearing in our world.” Apparently there are at least seventeen Titans on Earth. Monarch has been keeping their existence a secret to avoid causing panic.
The trailer looks action packed with a lot of Millie Bobby Brown and Vera Farmiga. There’s also some cheesy lines courtesy of Bradley Whitford, but Kyle Chandler‘s serious demeanor balances that out. I have to wonder what is the connection between Brown and Godzilla?
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the cryptozoological 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 superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of Monsters debuts in theaters on May 31.
