Go-go, Godzilla! Japan’s mightiest monster blasts free in a new image revealed exclusively by Entertainment Weekly today.
We’re big fans of all things Godzilla in these parts, and have held our own in many geek arguments about Gareth Edwards’ 2014 take on the beast. Incoming director Michael Dougherty’s forthcoming sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, promises even more excitement as the Legendary Pictures Monsterverse introduces Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah.
Long-time fans of the original Japanese series of films will know these variously as Godzilla’s allies and enemies and the prospect of these creatures doing battle in a big budget Hollywood film is utterly delicious.
Dougherty has produced some interesting work (particularly 2007’s Trick ‘R’ Treat) and his new story sees the creatures under some kind of human control.
The very intriguing cast is led by Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown and Zhang Ziyi, it scheduled to be released on May 31, 2019 in 2D, 3D, and select IMAX theaters.
Bring on the monsters and let them fight, I say…
