The new trailer for “Godzilla: King of Monsters” shows Thomas Middleditch explaining to a congressional committee what’s at stake with the “Titans” ravaging the Earth. They have to determine which ones are here on the planet to protect us, and which are here to threaten humanity.
“So you’d want to make Godzilla our pet,” a senator asks in the trailer. “No, we would be his,” Ken Watanabe’s character solemnly responds.
Michael Dougherty’s film, a sequel to the 2014 “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” as part of a planned cinematic MonsterVerse from Warner Bros. and Legendary, locks all the world’s kaiju in a battle with Godzilla for global dominance. In the film and as seen in the new trailer, he’ll collide with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.
And the new trailer did not disappoint in teasing the film’s many massive battles, with some stunning, sweeping special effects on display.
“King of Monsters” also boasts an impressive cast: Millie Bobby Brown leads Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Sally Hawkins, Thomas Middleditch, Ken Watanabe, Bradley Whitford, Aisha Hinds, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Ziyi Zhang, Anthony Ramos and Charles Dance. Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers, Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing.
The next entry in the MonsterVerse will see Godzilla take on King Kong in “Godzilla vs. Kong,” which Adam Wingard is directing for a planned 2020 release. Alexander Skarsgard, Brian Tyree Henry, Eiza Gonzalez, Julian Dennison and Demian Bichir are already among the film’s cast.
Legendary Entertainment is releasing the film this summer on May 31, 2019 in 3-D and 2-D and on select IMAX screens. Watch the new look above.
