Did Latest Trailer for GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS Include New Monster “Fake Outs”?

We know for a fact that when Godzilla rises from the depths for Godzilla: King of the Monsters this May, he’ll be battling Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. We’ve also been told to expect new monsters, but whether these will be reimaginings of classic Toho characters or original creatures created by Legendary remains to be seen.

In the second trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, we saw a couple of these potential new arrivals: The first showed its claws while emerging from an oil field and the second seemed to be an entire mountain coming to life. There’s a theory gaining traction today, however, that suggests these two unknown behemoths are actually just “place holders”, essentially fake-outs created by the studio to keep us from guessing the actual identities of the additional kaiju.

In the video above, Mr.H explains that there’s actually a precedent for Legendary doing just this. When footage from 2014’s Godzilla was screened at San DiegoComic-Con, it included images of a huge, segmented monster with at least ten appendages(dubbed “Vishnu”). But this beast wasn’t part of the film, nor was he ever intended to be. Legendary admitted that it was a ruse only meant only to reveal that Godzilla would battle other MUTOs.

Give Mr. H’s video a spin and let us know if you agree. You can also check out the trailer and synopsis for Godzilla: King of the Monstersbelow.

Synopsis:
Members of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch 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 super-species-thought to be mere myths-rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.”

We know for certain that Godzilla will be going toe-to-toe with Ghidorah, Mothra, and Rodan when Godzilla: King of the Monsters smashes into US theaters on May 31st, but Legendary has been teasing the appearances of other kaiju (aka MUTOs aka “Titans”); whether these turn out to be characters from Toho’s Godzilla franchise of if these will be original monsters remains to be seen.

There’s a theory making the rounds that one “new” monster we’ll see is actually another version of Godzilla himself: Burning Godzilla! Burning Godzilla is basically Godzilla in melt-down mode; he has only appeared once (in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah) and this berserker Godzilla has additional fiery powers.

So, was Burning Godzilla teased in the latest trailer for King of the Monsters? Check out Mr. H’s breakdown video above. If you missed the latest trailer, you can check it out at the bottom of the article.

New GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS Trailer Recreated Using Toho GODZILLA Clips

On Monday, the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer came and pretty much blew everyone away. While we’re still not 100% clear on the plot – something for which I’m eternally grateful for – there is no doubt that the visuals are proving to be everything we could’ve possibly hoped for. Massive destruction, kaiju fights with heft and weight behind them, and gorgeous visuals that will probably make it one of the most beautiful films of the year, all littered the screen of this gargantuan trailer.

However, we can’t forget that Godzilla‘s roots stem from more than half a century of cinema history, all thanks to the Japanese studio Toho. And that history has been recognized and appreciated by YouTuber Gorizard, who took the audio from the latest trailer and set it against Showa Toho Godzilla film clips, essentially creating a remix that bridged the new with the old, the modern with the classic. It’s a testament to the longevity of the franchise and a reminder that the awe and love we feel today is the same felt by generations before us. Long live the King, indeed!

Michael Dougherty Says the Approach to ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Was “No Holding Back”

As if the trailers haven’t already made it abundantly clear, Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters is set to be a full-on explosion of monster mayhem, featuring Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Mothra and Rodan all in one film. Whereas the 2014 film it’s a sequel to held back a bit on the real good stuff, Dougherty promises his movie does not.

We have a lot of monsters,” Dougherty told Total Film, pointing out the obvious. “I think Gareth [Edwards] had a lot of fun playing cat-and-mouse and I love the slow-build he created. But we definitely take the gloves off for this film. No holding back.”

New ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Trailer Smashes Its Way Into the Internet

If your holiday wishes include a massive prehistoric water lizard smashing its way through a giant moth and a three-headed monster, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have got you covered! A new trailer launched today for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which features the clearest images of Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidora that we’ve seen since the project was first announced. Fans of the film’s impressive ensemble cast will be pleased by new shots featuring Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga Charles Dance, and Sally Hawkins. You can watch the entire trailer below:

Co-written and directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat, Krampus), the film appears to be much more heavily focused on Godzilla and his rival monsters than on the human characters, marking a departure from the previous entry which will likely please most longtime Godzilla fans who just want to see a good old fashioned monster mash. The official synopsis for the new trailer also appears to confirm the film’s focus on its legendary creatures:

“Following the global success of Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological 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 super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.”

Godzilla: King of the Monsters will hit theaters on May 31st, 2019. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on this exciting project as they break!
