Release the Titans! This newest trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters really upped its game when it comes to spectacle. If the prospect of a disaster movie with giant monsters fighting amidst crumbling cities and possible worldwide destruction doesn’t sound entertaining, then I’m not sure what else this newest trailer can do for you.
We got to see most of these monsters before in the previous trailer, but now we get to see much more of all the beasts in action than before. You have King Ghidorah wrecking the place, a lengthy look at Rodan flying over a city and decimating it, and some beautiful shots of the possible-ally Mothra in action. Did I forget someone? The best is saved for last, of course. We get hero shots of Godzilla left and right, with him rising out of the water to declare his alpha status and blasting some monsters with his atomic breath. Watch out! Humanity’s best chance to outlive the other Titans is here and we all know it now.
Talk about a setting a tone though. This trailer has just brought all the destruction with it, while a version of “Over the Rainbow” plays in the background. It was beautiful and haunting to watch all these monsters fight for their right to claim this world with that piece of music behind it. It was strangely appropriate and with the musical beats timed to the hits it that really drove it home.
The last 30 seconds of this trailer is so bombastic and overwhelming that you may have to watch it a few times to pick up on everything that is going on. This has been billed as the pay-per-view of monster battles and I hope it can deliver on everything this trailer promises. If you weren’t excited for Godzilla: King of the Monsters before or were on the fence, then I think this trailer will sell you.
Look for all the epic monster brawls to come from Godzilla: King of the Monsters on May 31, 2019
