2019 is full of spectacular blockbusters, but it is hard to see how these particular films can compete with Michael Dougherty’s Kaiju filled film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which is looking to contain all out destruction on epic proportions. Let’s face it, it wouldn’t be a proper monster movie without cities being destroyed, would it?
After the disappointment of the first film in 2014, which gave Godzilla roughly 11 minutes of screen time, it looks as though the sequel is going all out and I don’t think it’s going to disappoint. Check out the latest TV spot if you need persuading.
Now, it appears that we may be getting more Kaiju. So far we have, Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah. But from the new trailer, there may be 2 additional Kaiju, however their identities are currently unknown since we get an incredibly limited look at them. One looks to have an insect type body, with multiple legs rising from the ground. The other is slightly harder to see since this Kaiju is covered in rock. What is clear, is that both are rather large. Whether they’ll play a role in the film is a mystery, personally I believe these Kaiju will arrive at the end of the film, when the day is won, and Godzilla reigns triumphant. Some guesses allude to Kumonga and Anguirus. Although, they could be completely new Kaiju, similar to what the 2014 film did, but considering how the sequel has introduced fan favorites, it is likely we will see the arrival of more popular and recognizable monsters.
One of the coolest shots from the TV Spot was, without a doubt, the awesome shot of Rodan flying straight towards Ghidorah. Now that it going to be an epic fight.
King of the Monsters is directed by Dougherty and stars Millie Bobby Brown, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanbe and Bradley Whitford. The film is scheduled for May 31st 2019. Are you excited for the sequel? Let us know in the comments below.
