The final official trailer for Godzilla II: King of the Monsters has been released, showcasing a great deal of the upcoming monster fest.
This thing looks suitably epic, as our titular overgrown lizard once again comes out ready to brawl to save our sorry asses. Godzilla faces the three-headed King Ghidorah in this chapter, which also sees the rise of a number of other god-sized monsters, including Mothra and Rodan. The big new trailer offers up a lot of footage, if maybe even a little too much. Still, it’s got this writer well and truly hyped to grab some popcorn, a choc top, and an epic-sized sugar drink to see these titans clash on the big screen.
Among the humans in this creature feature are Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, O’Shea Jackson Jr and Zhang Ziyi, with Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat, Krampus) directing from a screenplay he wrote with Zach Shields (Krampus).
Godzilla II: King of the Monsters will be hitting Australia cinemas on May 30 and opens in the US on May 31.
