The previous promos for Warner Bros. upcoming Godzilla movie have shown us a planet under attack from giant beasts that mankind believed to be nothing more than myths. And we already know the only hope for survival will require them to work with a former foe to save them from total annihilation. However, the film’s final trailer might be the most terrifying look at the movie yet. While trying to stave off attacks from Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah is scary enough, they’re far more menacing when they are working together. And it will all lead to the greatest battle the world has ever known, a fight that will truly determine who is the King of the Monsters. Did he say there are 17 of these god-like beasts? We heard that correct, right? And they are all working together as a “pack” hellbent on destroying everyone and everything as they reclaim their title as titans of the world? And their King is the three-headed Ghidorah, the “alpha” they are all following and which the monster Godzilla must defeat to stop them all, in what looks like it could be the best looking film in franchise history?
Especially because it’s always way more fun when Godzilla is on our side. Sure, some buildings and cities are going to be destroyed, but at least they’ll be destroyed for a good reason—survival.
Long live the King.
Directed by Michael Dougherty (Krampus), and starring Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Charles Dance, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, and David Strathairn, Godzilla: King of the Monsters comes to mankind’s rescue just in time for summer, on May 31.
