                            'Godzilla: King of the Monsters': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and spectacular last promo footage before movie releases

'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' is all set to hit theatres on May 31, 2019, and we're all suffering through monster fever. Directed by Michael Dougherty, the film is a sequel to the 2014 'Godzilla' and is the 35th film in the 'Godzilla' franchise, the third film in Legendary's MonsterVerse, and the third 'Godzilla' film to be completely produced by a Hollywood studio.

The film marks the return of the king of monsters to the big screen and is one of our most anticipated films of the year. What excites us best about the film is that we get to see the monster is all his fellow kaiju glory — which includes Mothra, Rodan and other colossal Titans. As Godzilla races against time and hope, it is now time to choose a side — we have picked ours.

Release date

The movie is scheduled to hit theatres in the US on May 31, 2019.

Plot

Here is the official synopsis for the film: 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.

Chandler plays the role of Dr. Russell, an animal behavior and communication specialist who formerly worked for Monarch, and co-inventor of "the Orca", a machine that enables communication with the Titans but can also "potentially control them using their bioacoustics on a sonar level." The actor has starred in 'King Kong', 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', 'Super 8', 'Argo', 'The Wolf of Wall Street', and 'Game Night'. For his role in Netflix's 'Bloodline', he received his fourth and fifth Primetime Emmy Award nominations.

Expect lots of giant monster-on-giant monster fighting if the last promo footage before the movie releases is to be believed.

 



 

The story for 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' is set in the present day. It has now been a few years since the events of the 2014 film — this means that a substantial amount of time is left unaccounted for in the series. "This film roughly takes place in real time. So we are placing that first film in 2014 and we are saying this film takes place roughly five years after, so in 2019," director Michael Dougherty was reported saying. "It's not like the monsters are suddenly popping out of nowhere, they've always been here. They were here before we were. So the concept we're running with is that this world belonged to them."

Where to watch

You can watch the film in theatres starting May 31, 2019.
