Godzilla: King of the Monsters Trailer 2
The new Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer finally shows the world what we were all waiting for: monster fights with humans caught in the crossfire.
The new King of the Monsters trailer reveals several plot points for the sequel, as well as several key roles. There’s plenty to expect from this monster mash, especially since it will be the third film of Paramount’s MonsterVerse. The MonsterVerse includes 2014’s Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, and the eventual sequel for King of the Monsters, Godzilla vs. Kong, that is scheduled to follow up on May 22, 2020.
Trailer Shows More… Monsters!
Unlike the last official King of the Monsters trailer, this one does not try to be cryptic nor mysterious about the monsters we will be encountering in cinemas next summer. In fact, here’s a comprehensive list of the monsters any Godzilla fan will catch in the trailer, all brought to life through the power of CGI and performance capture.
Trapped in ice, King Ghidorah is unleashed and looks to take flight and bring certain destruction to anyone in its way.
The King of the Monsters trailer would have felt incomplete without some shots of the big ol’ lizard. We see him in several scenes taking on King Ghidorah, and at one point see him in a defeated state. Could King Ghidorah be too much for the King of Monsters?
Everyone’s favorite giant pterodactyl makes an appearance by breaking out of a volcano. The monster also looks to be taking flight in a few other scenes and will likely prove a huge challenge for Godzilla to face. Let’s hope he developed an atomic breath beam attack as seen in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993)!
A friendlier kaiju, Mothra graces the screen once more. Mothra looks to be on Godzilla’s side and will look to retain much of the original look of the more notable monsters in movie history. The trailer also suggests that Mothra will start out in their larvae form. This means it may be a little time before that little worm turns into the beautiful Mothra we all know.
Although the movie calls these mythical creatures titans, there are some that have yet to have been fully revealed in the trailer. This included a scene of trees that hid the shape of a rising beast, as well as scorpion-like beast scurrying out of the sand. Whether or not any more notable monsters will make their debut in the third fully Hollywood-produced Godzilla movie is up for debate. However, expect a lot more fighting and collateral damage, especially since the entire world is at stake at this point.
The scene-stealer from this trailer comes when Ken Watanabe (returning as Dr. Serizawa) responds to when a Senator asks “So you’d want us to make Godzilla our pet?”, to which he answers, “No, we would be his.”
Godzilla: King of the Monsters releases May 31, 2019, and will be directed by Michael Dougherty.
