Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Trailer Ditches The Artsy Stuff And Goes For Destruction Porn
Godzilla King of Monsters (2019)

The latest trailer for Warner Bros., and Legendary’s Godzilla: King of Monsters was released. The trailer is out and out badass. There’s no getting around that. Godzilla is portrayed as the last savior of mankind as King Ghidora wages an all out war on humanity.

The trailer is far less sublime than the original announcement trailer from Comic-Con, which featured a remix of Claude Debussy’s “Clair de Lune”. This time around, we get a straightforward plot of humanity panicked and at the mercy of indomitable titans.

A Senate hearing indicates that the world ends up putting its life in the hands of Godzilla as its savior, as the skies boil and bubble with the flames of destruction, and the wind-swept of cities of old clamor desperately for safety through flight… and prayer. You can check out the trailer below courtesy of Movieclips trailers.

They don’t give too much away, but it’s pretty obvious that Godzilla gets a little help from his old friends Mothra and what appears to be Anguirus. There are also hints that Kamacuras and Kumonga make appearances, along with Megaguirus, but it’s tough to tell just from the snippets of clips where buildings are being destroyed, the earth is shattering, and dust, flames, fireballs, and explosions are erupting all over the place.

We also see Rodan going around creating fiery destruction, but it’s impossible to tell which side of the fight he lands on.

And speaking of the fights… we don’t get to see any actual fights.

But this is a good thing.

Godzilla King of the Monsters - Titans

The trailer leaves you with a lot of mouth-watering visuals and a cinematic spectacle for the kind of destruction and scope they’re aiming for by teasing so many awesome looking shots. In fact, we never see any of the monsters collide, just the destruction they leave in their wake. It makes you itch and beg to see what will happen when they finally do lock up, which is teased in the very last frame of the trailer as Godzilla charges at Ghidorah in the middle of the city.

Obviously, there appears to be a Dark Knight Rises element to this upcoming film, as we see that at one point Godzilla gets aced by Ghidorah and is in critical condition, and the scientists are trying to find ways to restore him. Eventually he makes a comeback for the final showdown, but it’s tough to tell if Godzilla will have help during the final battle or if he’ll go it alone.

Originally I thought this was going to be a art-house piece based on the first trailer they let loose, but the second trailer has definitely restored a lot of my confidence in Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of The Monsters. You can look for the film to drop in theaters in May, 2019.
