When asked straight-up if Ghidorah is from space, Garcia was at first emphatic, then nebulous, and finally, immensely intriguing.
His immediate response to whether or not Ghidorah is from space was “No” but he almost instantly begins to backpedal admitting “They don’t really know” and finally stating “He’s not part of the natural order.”
So, what does it all mean? Check out the deep dive at the top of the article from one of our favorite UK film critics/academics Mr. H. He dissects Garcia’s comments in order to gleam the maximum information revealed. Give it a spin above, followed by the synopsis and trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters below.
Members of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch 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.
Directed by Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus‘ Michael Dougherty, who co-wrote the film with Zach Shields, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, and Zhang Ziyi.
This film has been rated PG-13 for sequences of monster action violence and destruction, and for some language. Look for Godzilla: King of the Monsters to demolish US box offices beginning May 31st.
