‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ Unveils a New Trailer and Poster

Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures just released a new full trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The sci-fi creature feature, which was previously referred to as Godzilla 2, was directed by Michael Dougherty from a script he co-wrote with Zach Shields.

Warner Bros Pictures is planning a May 31, 2019 theatrical release in 2D, 3D, and IMAX. The action adventure film’s earned a PG-13 rating from the MPAA for sequences of monster action violence and destruction, and for some language.

2014’s Godzilla rang up $93 million domestically over its first weekend in theaters. The much-anticipated rebirth of Godzilla films finished its theatrical run with a gross of $529 million. Warner Bros is currently working on the next film in the Godzilla franchise, Godzilla vs. Kong, which has a target release date of May 22, 2020.

The Plot:

“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.”
