Okay, we already know that the big event will be when Godzilla fights against King Kong in Godzilla vs Kong. But that doesn’t mean Godzilla: King of the Monsters will just be a mere warm-up. If the first released trailer can be used as an indication, the film will be the ultimate Hollywood monster film ever. At least so far.
For those who have problems with the film Godzilla (2014) because of too little displaying the monster in action, this time there’s no need to worry. Godzilla will be faced with, not just one or two, but three legendary Kaiju monsters imported directly from Japan. They are a goth moth named Mothra, a giant pterodactile named Rodan, and a three-headed dragon known as Godzilla’s arch enemy, King Ghidora.
All these monsters turned out to have existed on earth long before humans existed. This latest trailer is not shy to show all these monsters from the start. “Our planet will be destroyed,” said Vera Farmiga. “So are we.”
As we saw in the previous film, the existence of just one monster has brought various kinds of calamities. Especially four monsters. There is not a single human defense mechanism that can overcome them. However, Godzilla will of course come back to save us right? The trailer closes with Godzilla who shoots blue rays into the sky.
This film is the third film from Warner Bros’s MonsterVerse franchise that starts with Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, then continues with Kong: Jordan Island’s Skull Vogt-Roberts. The climax, the two iconic monsters will be reunited in Godzilla vs Kong in 2020. But how their meeting mechanism is still a mystery, given the timeline of both of which are far different.
