“We really shook the pillars of Heaven, didn’t we?” – Jack Burton, Big Trouble in Little China
Sorry, Jack. But this is one monster that even your checks can’t cash!
The final trailer for Legendary’s upcoming kaiju film Godzilla: King of the Monsters has been released and this time it gives a much clearer picture of what the story will be about. If you don’t want to know and would rather go into the movie as blind as possible, I recommend you click away.
Seems like Earth is overrun with not a few titans but rather there are 17 in total. As with any situation like this, there are bound to be rivalries, so we’ve got Ghidorah leading one part of the pack while Godzilla is in charge of the other. In order to ensure the survival of the human race, people team up with the latter in order to help destroy the former. As one can expect, there will be a swath of destruction and no amount of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” can do a damn thing to allay insurance companies’ woes over how much they’re going to have to pay out.
“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.
