Recently we got a good look at the new kaiju being featured in the upcoming sequel “Godzilla: King of the Monsters.” However, that good look came in the form of toys so that doesn’t really count. Along with that look we heard a rumor that a new trailer for the film would be coming out […]
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!

After debuting at Brazil Comic Con, the brand spankin’ new trailer for Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters is here and oh boy is it something special. Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah are on full display in the movie’s second trailer, which suggests some more plot details and poses one hell of a question: will humanity become Godzilla’s pet?
Tiny humans are stuck in the middle of a war between massive Titans in Dougherty’s sequel to the 2014 movie, which looks to be an action-packed, visionary blast of blockbuster entertainment. The trailer ends with Godzilla and the three-headed Ghidorah squaring off, which is surely only the beginning of what promises to be an unforgettable monster fight.
This is going to be one of the best Godzilla movies of all time, yeah? Giving Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat, Krampus) a handful of monsters and a ton of money to play with has clearly proven to be one of the smartest, coolest choices made in Hollywood in recent years.
The sequel takes place five years after the events in the first film…
“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.”
Zhang Ziyi, Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Bradley Whitford, Ken Watanabe, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance and Aisha Hinds star.
Dougherty directed from a script he wrote with Zach Shields.
We’ve profiled artist Christopher Shy‘s watercolor-style movie posters several times here on BD, and that’s simply because he continues to blow our minds with his jaw-dropping art. There is truly nobody who does movie poster art quite like Shy does; he’s the guy who whipped up that Godzilla: King of the Monsters SDCC art, easily this year’s best poster.
On a Godzilla-related note, Shy has just completed a wave of Kaiju movie posters, including ones for Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla, Shin Godzilla and War of the Gargantuas!
Currently available through Shy’s Art of Ronin online shop, you can grab two different versions of Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla, the Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah art from the aforementioned Godzilla: King of the Monsters poster, and Shy’s poster for Shin Godzilla. From what we understand, the War of the Gargantuas artwork will also be available soon.
I don’t know about you, but I’m dying to see more of ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ and I absolutely cannot wait until next year. Well, thankfully we’re getting a little somethin’ somethin’ out of Japan this weekend as director Mike Dougherty has given us a better look at the upcoming monsters Godzilla will be […]
A new tweet not only shares a fresh look at the Michael Dougherty-directed Godzilla: King of the Monsters, but also reveals that new footage will be shown at the Tokyo Comic Con Dec. 1. You can watch the first trailer below.
