Godzilla: King of the Monsters (ゴジラ キング・オブ・モンスターズ,   Gojira Kingu Obu Monsutāzu, lit. Godzilla: King of Monsters) is an upcoming 2019 American science fiction monster film produced by Legendary Pictures, and the third entry in the MonsterVerse. It will be released to American theaters on May 31, 2019.[1]

Description

"The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members 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."[2]

Development

Gareth Edwards stated that he wanted Godzilla to work as a standalone film with a definitive ending, and opposed suggestions that the ending should leave the film open for a sequel.[3] While Edwards wasn't against the possibility of future sequels, his main concern was delivering a satisfying experience with the current film; "I want a story that begins and ends, and you leave on a high. That's all we cared about when we were making this; just this film. If this film is good, the others can come, but let’s just pay attention to this and not get sidetracked by other things."[4]

On May 18th, 2014, after Godzilla's successful opening weekend, a sequel was officially given the green light from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. Edwards was confirmed to be directing the sequel but it was unknown if any of the previous cast would be returning. In a previous interview with Gareth Edwards, he said that if the film were to have a sequel that he would like to do a Destroy All Monsters-like film.[5]

On July 26, 2014, the official Legendary Twitter announced that Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah would be appearing in the sequel.[6]

A piece of "Classified Monarch Footage," a teaser for Godzilla 2, was shown at Comic-Con 2014. According to eye-witnesses, it looked like it was put together in the 1960's, with audio of John F. Kennedy talking about threats and dangers. Text comes on the screen saying that there was one more secret: "There were others." A pterodactyl-like shadow and "CODENAME: RODAN." An extreme close-up of a giant moth creature and "CODENAME: MOTHRA." Then a silhouette and quick cuts around a dragon-like shape figure and "CODENAME: GHIDORAH." Finally, "THREAT ASSESSMENT: CONFLICT INEVITABLE," followed by "LET THEM FIGHT."[7]

On Thursday, August 14, 2014, a release date of June 8, 2018 was set for Godzilla 2.[1] The four-year gap between Godzilla and Godzilla 2 was due in part to Gareth Edwards directing the film Star Wars: Rogue One and as a result being unavailable to begin work on Godzilla 2 until 2016.

On December 8, 2014, Toho announced production of a new Japanese Godzilla film for 2016. Despite being released between Legendary's Godzilla films, the new Toho film, Shin Godzilla, will be a standalone film not connected to Legendary's series, and will have no effect on the production of Godzilla 2.

On July 9, 2015, Legendary Pictures' spokesperson at Comic-Con, Barnaby Legg, told Dread Central that Legendary was aware of fans' complaints about Godzilla's lack of screentime in the 2014 film, and that the sequel would give fans "exactly what you're hoping for."[8]

In an interview with Collider conducted in early August 2015, writer Max Borenstein revealed that he is currently writing the script for the film, and promised that the sequel would do "bigger and even better things" than the first film. Borenstein also expressed his excitement for the film, and enthusiasm for working with Gareth Edwards once again.[9]

On October 14, 2015, Legendary Pictures officially announced production of a remake of King Kong vs. Godzilla titled Godzilla vs. Kong set for release in 2020. The film will follow both Godzilla 2 and Legendary's Kong: Skull Island.[10]

On May 10, 2016, an article revealed that the release dates of both Godzilla 2 and Godzilla vs. Kong had been changed to March 22, 2019 and May 29, 2020 respectively.[11] Only three days later, it was reported that Gareth Edwards had left the film in order to pursue other projects.[12]

On October 17, 2016, it was announced that Godzilla 2 will be shot at the Qingdao Movie Metropolis facility in China alongside Pacific Rim 2.[13]

On October 20, 2016, Variety reported that Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields, who had recently co-wrote Legendary's Christmas horror-comedy Krampus, would be stepping in as the new writers for Godzilla 2. In addition, sources indicated that Legendary was planning to set up a writer's room to further expand the Godzilla-Kong cinematic universe leading up to Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020.[14]

On December 14, 2016, in a press release announcing the hiring of new production executives, Legendary revealed the official titles for both Godzilla 2 and the Pacific Rim sequel. Godzilla 2's official title is Godzilla: King of the Monsters, while the Pacific Rim sequel's official title is Pacific Rim Uprising.[15]

On January 23rd, 2017, Variety reported that writer Michael Dougherty would also direct the film.[16] Four days later, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown would star in the film.[17] Variety reported on February 21st that Kyle Chandler had officially joined the cast and would be playing the father of Millie Bobby Brown's character. In the same article, Variety mentioned that of the previous film's stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, and Ken Watanabe, only Watanabe was expected to reprise his role.[18] On February 27, Variety reported that Vera Farmiga would also be starring in the film, and would be playing the mother of Millie Bobby Brown's character.[19] On March 27, Variety reported that Straight Outta Compton star O'Shea Jackson Jr. was in negotiations to join the film's cast.[20]

Issue #1036 of Production Weekly, published on March 30, 2017, revealed that the film's working title would be Fathom.[21]

On April 18, Deadline reported that Aisha Hinds had joined the film's cast. The article also stated that both O'Shea Jackson Jr. and Ken Watanabe were part of the cast as well.[22] On May 1, Deadline reported that Hamilton star Anthony Ramos had joined the film's cast, and would be playing a character named Cpl. Mendoza.[23] On May 18, Deadline reported that Charles Dance had joined the film's cast, and that Sally Hawkins would also be returning to reprise her role as Vivienne Graham from Godzilla.[24]

On May 20, 2017, director Michael Dougherty confirmed via Twitter that creature effects artist Tom Woodruff Jr. would be designing the monsters for the film.[25] On May 23, 2017, Dougherty confirmed via Twitter that practical monster effects would be used in the film.[26] The next day, Dougherty announced on Twitter that Randy Havens had joined the film's cast.[27] On May 31, Variety confirmed that Thomas Middleditch had joined the cast.[28] On June 2, Variety reported that Bradley Whitford had joined the film's cast.[29]

On June 8, 2017, The Tracking Board reported that Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi had joined the cast of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and would be playing a prominent member of Monarch.[30] On July 10, 2017, Deadline reported that The Walking Dead star Elizabeth Ludlow had joined the film's cast.[31]

On June 21, a Monarch timeline video was uploaded to the Kong: Skull Island Twitter account.[32] Another one was uploaded on June 25.[33] Another one, revealing that Monarch set up a base around Isla de Mona in 1991, was uploaded on July 5.[34]

On July 12, another timeline video was uploaded.[35] Three of the entries on the timeline appear to hint at the discoveries of Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah, with a year and brief description given for each.

1991; ISLA DE MONA - A covert Monarch team establishes a quarantine zone around the island's dormant volcano, under the guise of 'environmental research'. Over the coming years, what began as a small scientific outpost will expand to become a full containment facility around the mouth of the volcano.
2009; TEMPLE OF THE MOTH - Mythographic studies of Chinese temples leads Monarch to the high-altitude jungles of the Yunnan province. Dr. Emma Russell and her team follow a mysterious bio-acoustic signature to a previously undiscovered megalithic temple, within which lies a gigantic cocoon. A quickening heartbeat is detected inside.
2016; MONSTER ZERO - When Monarch discover an extraordinary superspecies sealed beneath the Antarctic ice sheet, Dr. Vivienne Graham leads the effort to build a covert containment and research facility around the dormant creature. Her classified field notes contain a mysterious footnote: "The devil has three heads."

On April 26, 2018, TheWrap reported that Jason Liles, who had recently portrayed the giant gorilla George through motion capture in the film Rampage, would be acting as one of King Ghidorah's motion capture actors in the film.[36] The same day, Empire explained that Liles would specifically be portraying King Ghidorah's middle head, with Alan Maxson and Richard Dorton playing the other two heads and additional motion capture actors performing as the monster's body.[37] On May 23, 2018, the movie's release date was pushed back to May 31, 2019.[1]

On July 7, Michael Dougherty confirmed that Godzilla: King of the Monsters would be featured in Warner Bros.' Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con.[38] Vera Farmiga offered some details about her character Dr. Emma Russell in a July 10 interview with Metro US: "I play a paleobiologist. She has figured out a way to communicate with the creatures and potentially control them using their bioacoustics on a sonar level. So she is like a DJ for the monsters.”[39] Entertainment Weekly published a first-look article on the film on July 13, including two stills, one showing Dr. Emma Russel and her daughter Madison in an icy chamber and another depicting Godzilla firing his atomic breath into the sky, and some basic plot details from Dougherty.[40] Dougherty revealed that the story would take place five years after Godzilla. Godzilla has not appeared since battling the MUTOs in San Francisco, but the prospect of his return and the potential emergence of other giant monsters has filled the world with terror. When Dr. Russell and her daughter Madison are kidnapped by a "mysterious organization" seeking to control the monsters, and her ex-husband Mark, along with Drs. Ishiro Serizawa and Vivienne Graham, try to rescue them. He also described the still of Godzilla firing his atomic breath into the sky as a "call to arms."

@MonarchSciences, a Twitter account Legendary previously used to promote Kong: Skull Island, deleted all of its Tweets and began posting again on July 18.[41] The account soon added a link to a new site where visitors could view Monarch outposts around the globe, as well as information on Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. The previously-dormant @GodzillaMovie Twitter Tweeted a short video of Madison Russell attempting to contact Monarch. Godzillamovie.com was also updated with a poster for the film.

On July 21, a presentation for the film was held in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con. Director Michael Dougherty and cast members Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Thomas Middleditch, and O'Shea Jackson Jr. were present for a panel on the film. During the panel, Dougherty confirmed that composer Bear McCreary, whose past work includes 10 Cloverfield Lane and Colossal, would be scoring the film and would incorporate the main theme from the original Godzilla and the other monsters' classic motifs into his score.[42] The film's first official trailer was also screened for the first time during the panel, and was subsequently uploaded to Warner Bros.' YouTube channel.

On August 23, Alex Maxson Tweeted an announcement from his agency Coolwaters Productions, clarifying the motion capture roles of its clients in the film. The announcement reiterated the fact that Maxson would be portraying King Ghidorah's right head, with Jason Liles playing the center head and Richard Dorton playing the left head. It also revealed that Liles would also be portraying Rodan in the film, while TJ Storm would be reprising his role as Godzilla from the previous film.[43]

On September 6, a listing appeared on Amazon for an official graphic novel prequel to Godzilla: King of the Monsters to be released on April 16, 2019. It will be written by Arvid Nelson, who previously wrote all four issues of Skull Island: The Birth of Kong, and illustrated by Drew Johnson.[44] On October 14, MonsterVerse Mythology Manager George Tew announced via Twitter that he would be part of a Legendary Comics panel called "Godzilla: Secrets of the MonsterVerse" held at Los Angeles Comic Con on October 26. This panel, also attended by SVP of Creative Strategy Barnaby Legg, SVP of Comics Robert Napton, and illustrator of the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters tie-in graphic novel Drew Johnson, will explore the history of Monarch in both the films of the MonsterVerse and its tie-in comics Godzilla: Awakening and Skull Island: The Birth of Kong. The panel will also discuss Legendary Comics' upcoming work with Godzilla in 2019, and reveal previously unseen information about Monarch. The first 500 fans in attendance will also receive an exclusive signed Godzilla poster.[45]

On October 23, Dougherty confirmed via Twitter that King Ghidorah will have his iconic cackling roars, reiterating what he has said in previous interviews.[46] On October 25, Legendary Comics revealed the official title of the film's graphic novel prequel, Godzilla: Aftershock, and released a teaser image and plot description for it. It revealed that the graphic novel will pick up after the events of Godzilla, and will introduce characters from the sequel such as Dr. Emma Russel. Godzilla: Aftershock will also feature Godzilla battling against a new original monster. During the "Godzilla: Secrets of the MonsterVerse" panel held at Los Angeles Comic Con on October 27, new photographs related to the film and Godzilla: Aftershock were revealed, including a cave painting depicting a battle between Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah. In addition, a teaser trailer for Godzilla: Aftershock was screened, revealing the design of Godzilla's new opponent, which has been stated to be a relative of the MUTOs from the previous film.

@MonarchSciences began posting new images of potential Titan sightings on November 26. On December 1, a major presentation for the film was held at Tokyo Comic Con. Michael Dougherty commented on concept art and storyboards for the film before showing teaser footage for the second trailer. A portion of Bear McCreary's rendition of Godzilla's Theme played during the panel. Afterwards, a two-meter statue of Godzilla's updated design was revealed, as well as Tamashii Nations' S.H. MonsterArts figures for Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, the first public look at their full designs.

The second trailer premiered on December 9 at Comic Con Experience in São Paulo, Brazil, and debuted online the following day.

In an interview published by Empire on March 20, Dougherty discussed Rodan's role in the movie, describing him as "a bit of a rogue" and explaining that it is not known where his loyalties lie.[47] Dougherty further discussed Rodan's role in an interview with Toho Kingdom's Chris Mirjahangir published on March 21. When asked whether or not he and Godzilla would be allies, Dougherty replied that Rodan is the wildcard and that he thinks his loyalties can sometimes falter.[48]

On March 21, multiple news outlets published articles detailing visits they had made to the film's set back in 2017, revealing several new details about the film such as the names of new Titans, character specifics, and more.[49]

Warner Bros. screened a five-minute clip from the film at WonderCon in Anaheim, California, on April 2; it also played before IMAX screenings of Shazam! on its opening weekend of April 4-7.[50]

On April 12, Toho announced that the rock band [ALEXANDROS] would be performing the theme song "Pray" for the Japanese release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The band's lead vocalist and guitarist, Yohei Kawakami, describes himself as a big Godzilla fan and had previously written an "unofficial" theme song for Shin Godzilla titled "kaiju," which he submitted to Toho in 2016 to no avail. However, Toho contacted the band with an offer to perform the Japanese theme song for Godzilla: King of the Monsters in the winter of 2018. Kawakami describes the song as a "magnificent rock ballad" which was written after the band had viewed a preview of the film. Michael Dougherty approved of the song, saying it "complements the dramatic ending perfectly."[51]

Warner Bros. premiered the third and final trailer on April 23. On May 7, Monarch Sciences updated with detailed information on the film's human characters. On May 9, the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California set up a giant inflatable Godzilla head on its roof, with rubble surrounding him to suggest he was bursting out of the structure. A blue light radiated from Godzilla's mouth at night, mimicking the film's "call to arms" scene. An advance screening was held at the theater the following day.

OKAY! So I have a theory that the egg mentioned at the end of this movie is actually a Godzilla egg, purely because it lines up with Minilla and Godzilla Junior's origins, although I'm not exactly 100% confident on this it would possibly make sense!

Yeah.....About that.....

Abaddon and Sargon seem to actually be one and the same. Which makes sense, cuz Revelation 9:2-11. [1] They're both the name and nickname of the scorpion Titan of Wyoming. Look at ANY legitimate map pics and you won't find ANY Sargons on it. The name Sargon seems to be a double reference to Mathayus the Scorpion King from The Mummy Returns and Sargon from The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior (who also murdered Mathayus's father, with scorpions).

As for Amhuluk, yes, he's the Russian dragon, named after a lake dragon of Oregonian folklore. Don't ask me how in the world THAT happens. With a minimal death toll. [2]

Plus even without Ghidorah they still would have been responsible for the deaths of millions from the more malicious monsters they released. They should have left it alone.

I saw the movie last week and it was absolutely fantastic! The story, pacing, music, and monster action was some of the best I've seen in a Godzilla movie. Go see it! It's really really good. I don't know how they're gonna top it for Godzilla vs Kong, but I'm interested to see where that post credits scene goes

Warning, spoilers ahead.

Pros: This movie was much better than the 2014 one. It had much more interesting characters and a good balance of screen time for kaiju and humans. The action was great and so were the kaiju designs. Serizawa had a good character arc but I would have liked to get to know his backstory more. Emma Russel also had a good redemption arc, altough I couldn't really root for her after she caused the deaths of millions. The Orca was also an interesting and creative plot point.

Cons: The Oxygen Destroyer felt very sudden and had no buildup. I feel like they just put it in there to have Godzilla be weak so the other monsters could wreak havoc uninterrupted. Speaking of the other monsters I would have liked them to get a little bit more screen time.

Overall, a great film close to being a perfect Godzilla movie but nowhere near the spot of best film of 2019.

8.5/10

Yeah. As much as I don't wanna find any dust-sized flaws in it, I kinda wish we got a bit more screen time for Mothra and Rodan. That way we could see what else they can possibly do.

As for the Oxygen Destroyer/nuke hybrid, I don't recall them explaining what it does exactly. Good thing it retained its scary, destructive aspects, with some new bits.

To me, it felt like Infinity War. There was so much going on and I was still processing that I was actually watching it. It's up there with some of my top favorite Godzilla films.

I pretty much agree with you here. To be honest, though, I actually really liked the 2014 film. But I agree that this was a massive improvement.

I don't mind that the Oxygen Destroyer was in the movie, but I do wish it had a little more buildup. It would have also been nice to have a montage sequence showing the other Titans wreaking havoc across the globe.

Also, another thing that's been bugging me lately. I've been rewatching some scenes from classic Godzilla movies, and I do kind of understand people when they say that they cut away from the fights a little too much.

Don't get me wrong, what we saw in the film was fantastic, but in the original movies, they knew when to pull away from the human action for more than two minutes and just let the monsters run loose on the screen. I feel like this movie doesn't do that as much as I wanted it too.

I can't help but shake the feeling that Michael Dougherty really, REALLY wanted to have a movie like that, but somebody stopped him in the development process and told him they needed to focus on the human characters more.

I'm still holding out for an extended Dougherty Cut with all sorts of extra kaiju action.

In terms of writing and acting, this movie isn't really anywhere near the spot for Best Movie of 2019. However, with that said, it can certainly take the spot for the most enjoyable. Had a great blast with this film, especially watching it with three other friends, and the monster scenes made it worth watching.

King of the monsters is one of the best Godzilla films ever, along with one of the best films ever. And also, everything the critics have criticized it for are wrong. It was not boring; I was pretty much out of my seat the whole time. Also, the human characters I felt had plenty of impact in the film.

My thoughts on Godzilla: King of the Monsters 9.5\10

I loved this movie. Whatever the youtubers and critics who have on this movie say is wrong. It's not boring (at least to me) and it's not a slow plot. It almost feels like the fastest 2 hours of my life. My only 2 problems are: 1. The

(My tablet has a as keyboard so it posted my comment as I was typing. My review is continued) 1. The Oxygen Destroyed feels rushed with no buildup whatsoever. 2. We don't need another Burning Godzilla. 1. The Oxygen Destroyer is way too out of the window weapon done it'll kill all the Monsters on no it's here. There needs to be buildup to a major plot point like that.

2. Burning Godzilla now has basically happened 3 times. We could've just had Mothra and Godzilla work together I stead of Mothra dying in every single movie with her in it.

I've gotta admit that the Oxygen Destroyer was SUPER different this time. Like the original and its nuclear counterparts got together and had an even scarier baby that could glow green!

And Fire Godzilla seems to be more of a condensed, non-fatal, weaponized version of Burning Godzilla. Whereas BG's temperature kept skyrocketing to globally catastrophic levels and lead to his demise, FG seems to be completely different. He was able to control it, weaponize it via intense body heat and Mothra-enhanced Nuclear Pulses, and prevent himself from dying, in the process. Unlike BG, whose Heat Wave Nuclear Pulses didn't do jack-squat for him and his temperature and energy levels kept rising, despite Destoroyah having absorbed some of BG's energy.
