Long live the king in new Godzilla: King of the Monsters poster
Legendary Pictures has released a fiery new poster for the upcoming monster blockbuster epic Godzilla: King of the Monsters highlighting the titular monster in all of his fire-breathing glory, which can be viewed in full below!
The Godzilla sequel stars Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Conjuring films), Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street, Manchester by the Sea), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Bradley Whitford (Get Out), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton), Aisha Hinds (Star Trek Into Darkness), and Zhang Ziyi (Memoirs of a Geisha, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai) and Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), both reprise their Godzilla roles.
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.
Michael Dougherty directs from a script he co-wrote with Zach Shields. The film is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull, with Barry H. Waldman, Zach Shields, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers and Alexandra Mendes co-producing for Legendary.
A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the sequel is set to stomp into theaters on May 31.
