At the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend there were many television shows and films getting a welcome media push or reveal. Being one of the largest celebrations of pop culture it totally makes sense, right? However there were some upcoming projects that fared better than others. Personally I thought the Aquaman trailer showed some potential as well as Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. For myself though the two trailers that really blew me away were for Glass and of course Godzilla: King of the Monsters!
Godzilla: King of the Monsters hits theaters next May and is directed by Michael Dougherty. Who you Saturday Frights fans might know as the Director of both Trick ‘r Treat as well as Krampus. Obviously this is a follow up of 2014’s successful Godzilla which was directed by Gareth Edwards. That film was not just a box office hit but allowed Legendary to plant their flag for the MonsterVerse. A series of shared universe films featuring not just characters from the iconic Godzilla franchise but King Kong too.
The link between these films in the MonsterVerse comes by the way of the Monarch Agency. A secret multinational organization determined to locate and study M.U.T.O.S – which if you are interested stands for massive unidentified terrestrial organisms. And to get back to the subject of Godzilla: King of the Monsters…it certainly appears that they have found more than a few!
While obviously this could all be considered one giant SPOILER, the awesomeness of the new trailer means it has to be shared. Furthermore with the plot of the upcoming film basically unknown, beyond speculating, what we have left is to get really excited over the monsters that will be featured in the movie. For example you have Mothra, who in my opinion looks a bit larger in size this go around.
The skies look like they will be exceptionally more dangerous in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, thanks to the inclusion of the mighty Rodan.
While we know that Godzilla will stand as guardian to the Earth itself…which is demonstrated in the trailer as well as in the 2014 movie. The question is where will the rest of the monsters stand?
The main threat in the film will most assuredly be the deadly and truly frightening King Ghidorah, although I have a hunch we are going to see more monsters in the near future.
It’s a long wait until the May 31st debut of the film in 2019 but with a cast featuring Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Charles Dance, Bradley Whitford, Ziyi Zhang, Ken Watanabe, Vera Farmiga, and Millie Bobby Brown it will be well worth the wait.
Now then, prepare yourself for the epicness of the Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer. Though a small word of warning there is one moment of salty language used in it.
