Godzilla: King of the Monsters Final Trailer Proves Ghidorah’s King
We knew that Godzilla: King of the Monsters was going to be loaded with monsters. The iconic trio of Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah have all been confirmed and seen in prior trailers. But what we didn’t know was that there appears to be more, many more Titans on the loose. And the Godzilla: King of the Monsters final trailer hints that King Ghidorah is leading them all.
The Godzilla: King of the Monsters final trailer opens up with an oil field erupting as a Titan emerges from the ground beneath it. Then, we see numerous other creatures appearing across the globe. Kyle Chandler’s Dr. Mark Russell asks “How many of these things are there?” He gets an answer he probably wasn’t expecting – “17, and counting.”
That’s right, it’s not just the well-known creatures that appear to be rising, but numerous others too. And it seems as though they’re being led. Bradley Whitford’s Dr. Stanton notes that “they’re moving like a pack, they’re hunting. They all respond directly to an alpha.” And with the mention of alpha, the Godzilla: King of the Monsters final trailer zooms in on a shot of King Ghidorah making his presence known atop the volcano we’ve seen before. “We stop this Ghidorah, we stop them all,” Stanton urges.
A lot of the remainder of the Godzilla: King of the Monsters final trailer then demonstrates King Ghidorah’s dominance over the other Titans. We see Ghidorah blasting a flying creature high above the clouds with electricity, sending it screaming back towards Earth with an immense thud.
At one point Ghidorah goes head to head with Rodan, making quick work of the aerial terror. Another shot sees the three-headed beast beaming energy at an incoming Mothra, with the latter seeming pretty overmatched.
Of course, there are quite a few shots of Godzilla going toe-to-toe with Ghidorah too. Godzilla seems bested quite a few times in the footage, but he’s got the power of the world’s military at his back this time as well. The movie’s final trailer wraps up with a downed Godzilla trying to regain his composure – and does so – blasting Ghidorah back with his iconic atomic ray.
The footage looks chaotic, yet awesome. And we don’t have much longer to wait. The movie flies into theaters on May 31st.
