‘Long live the King’

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a 2019 science fiction monster movie directed by Michael Dougherty (Krampus; Trick ‘r Treat) from a screenplay co-written with Max Borenstein and Zach Shields, based on characters created by Toho. The film is part of the MonsterVerse created by Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures that includes Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island (2017) and Godzilla vs. King Kong (2020).


Members of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

When these ancient super-species-thought to be mere myths-rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance…
