This is basically a version of Destroy All Monsters rather than a "true" Godzilla sequel. I hope that Mothra can get its own spin-off from this. Mothra is my second favorite Kaiju.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters: See Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga in first look | EW.com

Quote:
About five years have passed in Godzilla: King of the Monsters (out May 31, 2019) since the events depicted in 2014’s Godzilla. Which isn’t nearly enough time for people to stop freaking out about the discovery that they share the planet with a gargantuan lizard.

“The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting,” says director Michael Dougherty, whose previous credits include the horror movie Krampus. Godzilla hasn’t been seen since that destructive finale, “but there’s paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.”

King of the Monsters makes it enormously clear that there are other big beasts, notably the three-headed King Ghidorah, the giant insect Mothra, and another flying monster, Rodan, who in the original Japanese movies could create hurricane-force winds.


“Rodan’s been kind of a sidekick character, but I’ve always had a soft spot for him” says Dougherty. “In a lot of ways he’s more powerful than Godzilla. He’s like this winged A-bomb. I think we’ve done him justice.”
But let’s not forget Godzilla himself, who reveals he has the ability to exhale “atomic breath.” Can Dougherty expand on that description? “Not without giving away too much,” he laughs. “But it takes place at a very key moment and it’s a sort of call to arms.”
Hot damn. I can't wait. I hope the trailer lands next weekend.

Big G is looking kinda chubby. I know it takes extra bulk to support all that weight, but I'm thinking he needs to lay off whale snacks for a while. Too much blubber in your diet will do that.

Vera is great in anything she does. Lots of acting range.

That one image already looks better than most of the 2014 movie. The VFX are going to be somethin' else!

I still like the 2014 flick. Yeah, it had its problems. Most notably focusing on two very uninteresting leads. But Cranston and Watanabe were great, and I liked that the movie took its time to reveal the monsters.

A great movie? No. Not by a long shot. But it doesn't deserve the drubbing it sometimes gets.

I, too, like Gareth Edwards' Godzilla. It took its subject(s) seriously. The slow burn was great. I didn't expect much from AT-J and EO, but they did fine. The only part that sucked was the gratuitous, if brief, Vegas scene.

They were what spoiled the movie for me. Nothing against the actors. But the script never brought them to life. It seemed to me that the quality writing went into Cranston and Watanabe's role, then someone in the Marketing Department said, "What? Two old guys? Who cares if they're brilliant actors and have great character arcs? Throw in two pretty people! Quick!"
