Godzilla: King of Monsters Bring Us Rodan, Mothra, & a Bad Game of Thrones Joke

Godzilla: King of Monsters roared through a busy day of trailers at San Diego Comic on Saturday afternoon.

The film, a direct sequel to Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, is set for a May 2019 release. The plot finds the world dealing with the rise of “the titans” — who according Dr. Emma Russell (Vera Farmiga) —¬† who are rising in order to deal with the “infection” currently killing the Earth, humanity.

Those titans include: Mothra, Rodan, the three-headed King Ghidorah, and of course Godzilla.

The trailer features an epic, swelling score that punctuates the grandiose monster-driven action unleashed upon the earth.

The film stars Farmiga with Kyle Chandler, and Millie Bobby Brown playing her husband, and daughter respectively. Godzilla: King of Monsters also features: Bradley Whitford, Ziyi Zhang, Aisha Hinds, Charles Dance, and returning from the 2014 Godzilla — Ken Watanabe, and Sally Hawkins.

Sadly, Dance’s appearance gives us the line “Long live the King!” which is a really cheese ball, tongue-in-cheek Game of Thrones reference. Sadly, this takes you out of the trailer which was very serious, epic, and set up a lot of stakes.

The film is directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick r Treat, Krampus) and written Doughery, Zach Shields (Trick r Treat, Krampus), and Max Borenstein (Godzilla, Kong: Skull of Island)

While the trailer is impressive, let’s not get too excited. Godzilla movies have disappointed us in the past. Remember the over-hyped and underwhelming 1998 film starring Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno? Or even this film’s predecessor, starring Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Godzilla: King of Monsters hits theaters in May 2019.
