One of the most common complaints about the 2014 Godzilla was that it didn’t feature enough Godzilla. I personally didn’t have a problem with how often he was on screen considering that in some of the older movies he appeared far less. But I guess people today expect more monster for their buck. And it seems that the sequel will more than give them what they want. As director and co-writer Michael Dougherty said to ‘Total Film’:

“We have a lot of monsters. I think Gareth Edwards had a lot of fun playing cat-and-mouse and I love the slow-build he created. But we definitely take the gloves off for this film. No holding back.”

The new story, clearly inspired by 1965’s Ghidorah The Three Headed Monster….

follows the heroic efforts of the cryptozoological 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 superspecies, 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 is written by Dougherty, Max Borenstein and Zach Shields, and also stars Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, Ziyi Zhang, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Ken Watanabe.

The release date is May 31, 2019.


About Dr Lenera 3144 Articles
I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
