Following the global success of Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is coming to our screens this summer.
The next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse: Godzilla II: King of the Monsters, is an epic action-adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.
Directed by Michael Dougherty (Krampus) from a script he wrote with Zach Shields, the film stars Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton); Aisha Hinds (Star Trek Into Darkness); and Anthony Ramos (Monsters and Men).
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
The film is produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers, Thomas Tull, and Jon Jashni, with Zach Shields, Barry H. Waldman, Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers, and Alexandra Mendes and Jay Ashenfelter co-producing for Legendary.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters comes to UK cinemas 29th May 2019.
