Directed by Michael Dougherty, best-known for his work as a writer on films like X-Men: Apocalypse, Godzilla: King of the Monster is the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic “MonsterVerse”.
“The mass extinction we feared has already begun and we are the cause, we are the infection,” says scientist Dr. Emma Russell in the trailer (played by Vera Farmiga). “But like all living organisms, the Earth’s released a fever to fight this infection. Its original and rightful rulers, the Titans. For thousands of years these creatures have remained in hiding around the world, and unless all the Titans are found, our planet will perish and so will we. They are the only guarantee that life will carry on.”
Release is set for 31 May 2019.
