Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), the anticipated sequel for Godzilla (2014), is already completed, past its post-production, and ready for screening. Only that we will have to wait until next year to finally see it, since the release date has been pushed further to May 31, 2019 by the distributors in order not to compete with other big production releases of the pre-summer season. And until further notice that should be its final release date, since it’s already been shown in all the official posters of the movie.
Gareth Edwards, the director of Godzilla (2014), was supposed to also be in charge of the sequel but eventually he dropped out in order to direct Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016). Then the job got passed to Michael Dougherty, who debuted with a modest but interesting horror film in the old school style Trick ‘r Treat (2007) and continued with the positive surprise that was his dark creepy version of Krampus (2015). Now this is his first huge budget movie and rumors say it is going to be better and more spectacular than its predecessor. In fact, Dougherty rewrote the script together with his frequent co-writer Zach Shields and Max Borenstein, writer of Godzilla (2014) and Kong: Skull Island (2017).
Sally Hawkins and Ken Watanabe are the only main actors to reprise their roles in this sequel. Together with them, Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Aisha Hinds, Bradley Whitford, Charles Dance and Ziyi Zhang complete the main cast. The movie will be Rated PG-13 for sequences of monster action violence and destruction, and for some language.
The story for Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) follows the heroic efforts of the cryptozoological 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 superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance. And that means we are going to see monsters, plenty of monsters!
Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) is the second installment of the new planned trilogy based on the popular monster created by Tomoyuki Tanaka, Ishirō Honda and Eiji Tsubaraya first appearing in the classic Japanese kaiju film Godzilla (1954). It will be followed by Godzilla vs. Kong (2020), which is already filming with Adam Wingard on the director’s chair, and with Millie Bobby Brown reprising her role and co-starring Alexander Skarsgård. But let’s focus and remain the attention to what matters right now, and watch the trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019):
