Godzilla: King of the Monsters Trailer Shows Off its Stars

No, I don’t mean the humans. Yeah, they seem interesting enough but ultimately the humans should not be the point of any Godzilla movie featuring other monsters besides Godzilla. And they certainly aren’t the stars. When I say stars, I mean the bevvy of beautiful monsters this trailer shows off.

That’s right, we got our first looks at Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidora. Spoiler alert: they look fantastic.

Seriously, the shots of every monster we see are incredible. Mothra is outright beautiful in that waterfall shot. Rodan is a force of destruction leveling towns just flying over them. Godzilla is Godzilla. I had no complaints about his appearance the first time around and the shot of his atomic breath here was glorious. Then you have Ghidorah in the shadows, massive and imposing and full of lightning.

This is the best any of these characters have ever looked, with the possible exception of Godzilla. And that’s a matter of personal preference.

The trailer also sets up the reason all these monsters have been unleashed. Best guess, King Ghidorah is freed and starts wrecking havoc on Earth. The Titans hidden on Earth to protect it consist of the others. Humanity will spend some portion of the movie freeing them, as we can see here. Then it’s showtime, baby. Glorious, glorious big monster destruction. I’m hoping for a measure of gravitas to the destruction in this trailer. It looks like a lot of Earth will be obliterated beyond recovery.

One thing I hope we can agree on: how the hell would King Kong stand any chance against this kind of power? I’m still not remotely sold on the concept of Godzilla vs. King Kong.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters levels movie theaters everywhere on May 31, 2019.
