With just a couple more weeks standing between us and a nationwide release, genre news has been dominated by Godzilla: King of the Monsters. While today is no exception, the Godzilla news we’re sharing isn’t specifically tied to Legendary’s MonsterVerse; it has to do with the originators of Godzilla: Toho Studios.
The Japanese cinematic powerhouse and gatekeeper of all things officially Godzilla has just launched their first English Language website, one that will serve as a repository for the iconic kaiju’s vast legacy. While it’s rather bare at the moment, Toho promises frequent updates until it becomes a singular hub and a trusted resource. Start poking around for yourself, HERE.
“Fans have been longing for a universe that celebrates the all-mighty king of monsters and Godzilla.com delivers the most exciting news and stories about upcoming events, new merchandise and special releases as we commemorate the 65th anniversary of Godzilla.”
“Godzilla.com will be continuously updated as a source of news for upcoming Godzilla films including movie trailers and key art, events, fan content, new product news, and all future announcements. It will also be a resource for Godzilla’s complete filmography including rare videos, wallpaper and much more destructive content including updates on epic Godzilla toys, apparel and lifestyle products.”
Of course, it can’t be a coincidence that Toho is launching their Godzilla website in the immediate lead-up to King of the Monsters. Check out the synopsis and trailer for one of 2019’s most hotly anticipated releases 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.
