We already got one great Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer last summer, one that held back on a lot of Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah visuals in a way that still managed to satisfy. I figured that would also be the tactic of today’s new trailer. Boy, was I wrong. Check it out:
That is a much more generous dosage of monster action than expected, and I am here for it. Rodan looks cool, we don’t don’t have a perfect Mothra shot yet, but what we have here is plenty. And then there’s Ghidorah. My man steals the trailer just like he’s probably going to steal the film. And everything ending on that major climactic clash? No one’s playing coy here. We’re getting a monster brawl movie, and that’s that.
I’m so excited for this one. I love the idea that people are wising up to Godzilla’s role as our protector, which was my favorite part of 2014 movie. And, of course, I love this thick and burly Godzilla design. I absolutely cannot wait to see him fight Ghidorah and bro-down with Mothra. And I definitely hope he flat-out steps on Rodan, that punk.
