‘Godzilla King of the Monsters’ new photos, poster feature the showdown with King Ghidorah

A new batch of images from Godzilla: King of the Monsters sees King Ghidorah coming right at the “king,” facing off with Godzilla.

Speaking to Total Film, who provided the images, King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty touched on how his film will up the madness of the monstrous shared universe that was started by Gared Edwards, fleshed out by Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ Kong: Skull Island, and will eventually culminate in 2020’s Godzilla vs. Kong.

“What I loved about Gareth’s approach was that it was very grounded and very real…It felt like something you would see if you looked out your window. And then Jordan [Vogt-Roberts] pushed that further, and brought a lot of colour and vibrancy into his frames…I wanted to continue that evolution. You know, portraying the creatures as very realistic, but at the same time embracing the colour that they could bring – especially when you had a three-headed dragon that shoots lightning. You sort of have to embrace a more fantastical element when you bring in a giant moth, or a giant bird born out of a volcano. You try to keep it as grounded as you can, so that it feels real. But at the same time, you’re talking about very fantastical creatures.”

King of the Monsters brings characters back from Godzilla (2014) – like Monarch scientist Ishiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe), while introducing new characters like Monarch researcher Emma Russell (Vera Farmiga) and her daughter Madison (Millie Bobby Brown), who’s already been confirmed to return in Godzilla vs. Kong.

The film also stars Kyle Chandler, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Ken Watanabe, and Zhang Ziyi.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is set to hit theaters on May 31, 2019.

Here is the official synopsis for Godzilla: King of the Monsters:

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.
