Many fans eagerly awaited the release of Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla in 2014, hoping to see a return to form and a possible new franchise built around the atomic monster first created by Toho Studios in 1954. While the film quickly turned a profit with an opening weekend of close to $100 million, many detractors found Edwards’ film to be too focused on the stories of human characters (that the audience had a hard time connecting to) and most importantly, a movie too light on the kaiju action monsters lovers expected. If this is how you felt about Edwards’ version, save your money and fly as fast as you can from (on the back of Rodan perhaps) the follow-up film Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Set to a haunting instrumental version of the song Judy Garland made famous way back in 1939 in The Wizard of Oz, the latest trailer for the upcoming Godzilla sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, is guaranteed to send kaiju fans “Over the Rainbow”.
The brief clip jams more monsters than you can shake a stick at in the exactly one minute long teaser, giving viewers generous shots of Rodan, Mothra, Ghidorah, and of course, the biggest star in Hollywood, Godzilla.
The film is directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat, Krampus) and stars Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel, The Conjuring), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Bradley Whitford (Get Out); Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street), and O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton). Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins (who appeared in Gareth Edwards franchise starter in 2014) will also return to the film, reprising their roles from the previous monster mash. read more
