Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Trailer Kicks Off A Titanic Invasion

Godzilla is back, and so are a few of his fellow MUTOs in the official Comic-Con trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters

The trailer sets up the premise of a veritable panoply of larger-than-life monsters all emerging from deep beneath the earth to let us puny members of humanity know the score. Fans of the old Godzilla movies will find a lot to recognize here, including the three-headed menace that is King Ghidorah.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters' trailer puts much of its focus on Millie Bobby Brown's character Madison, who seems to have some sort of link to the monsters, or at least a lot of empathy for them. She looks remarkably calm in the middle of the storm, essentially, even as all the adults around her lose their minds over the arrival of so many monsters at once. 

As established by an earlier teaser, Madison spends at least part of the movie trying to establish a connection with Monarch, the organization designed to monitor Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms that previously appeared in Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island.

As previously reported, the sequel to Gareth Edwards' 2014 Godzilla movie will show the mighty monster of the title doing battle with three other beasts of the deep: Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, who has been described in the movie's press releases as Godzilla's ultimate nemesis. 

As far as human beings are concerned, the Godzilla sequel features returning cast members Sally Hawkins and Ken Watanabe, who will be joined by Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Bradley Whitford, and Thomas Middleditch. The film is directed by Michael Dougherty, who previously directed the holiday-themed monster movie Krampus

With King of the Monsters, the Godzilla and King Kong series are getting one step closer to a crossover, with Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island already sharing a cinematic universe known as the MonsterVerse. A sequel to both movies, Godzilla vs. Kong, is expected in 2020, and will be directed by The Guest and You're Next director Adam Wingard.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be out in theaters on May 31, 2019.
