Director Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat; Krampus) is currently shooting Godzilla: King of the Monsters, set for release on May 31, 2019 by Warner Bros.
Entertainment Weekly previously released the first two official images from the movie. The shot above is clearly radioactive Godzilla breathing fire while the one below shows Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring) and Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) looking anxious, as well they might.
We had the first teaser featuring Millie Bobby Brown, released to tie-in with Comic-Con, then an extended version with a Godzilla timeline.
Now, here’s the first Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer:
The Legendary sequel, which takes place five years after the events in the first film, has Dr. Emma Russell (Farmiga) as a scientist working for the monster-hunting organisation Monarch, with her daughter Madison (Brown) in tow. Monarch members have to face a battery of huge monsters, including the aforementioned Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.
Meanwhile, there are plans for Godzilla to eventually meet King Kong in Godzilla vs Kong, with a release date of May 29, 2020, already set.
