LONG LIVE "GODZILLA" IN KING OF THE MONSTERS TRAILER

 

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have just unleashed the first trailer of “Godzilla: King of the Monsters.”  Check it out below and watch the film in Philippine cinemas May 30, 2019.

 


 


About “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”

 

Following the global success of 2014’s “Godzilla” and 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island,” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse: “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.

 

The film was directed by Michael Dougherty (“Krampus”), and stars Oscar nominees Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “The Conjuring” films), and Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”) and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), both reprising their “Godzilla” roles; Kyle Chandler (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Manchester by the Sea”); Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) in her feature film debut; Bradley Whitford (“Get Out”); Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”); Charles Dance (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”); O’Shea Jackson Jr. (“Straight Outta Compton”); Aisha Hinds (“Star Trek Into Darkness”); and Golden Globe nominee Zhang Ziyi (“Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”).

 

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.

 

Dougherty directed from a script he wrote with Zach Shields.  The film was 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.

    BIGGEST, BADDEST MONSTERS BATTLE IT OUT IN GODZILLA II”

     

    With Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ “Godzilla II: King of the Monsters,” director/co-writer Michael Dougherty brings together some of the biggest, baddest monsters in big-screen history, realized without limits for the first time in the modern age, in an epic, globe-spanning battle royale for the future of the planet that links the fates of monsters and man.



     


    “Godzilla has always had a sense of mythic purpose,” says Dougherty, the lifelong fan at the helm of “Godzilla II: King of the Monsters.”  “Godzilla movies are big, they’re fun, but underneath all the monster mayhem and apocalyptic destruction, these movies are allegories.  That’s how the Japanese initially invented and portrayed the character, and I think it’s one of the reasons Godzilla has endured for as long as he has.”


    From his explosive 1954 awakening to his epic 2014 rebirth, Godzilla has always been more than a monster. A destroyer, a savior, an icon, a King, he has evolved and reinvented himself through decades of social, political and ecological change from a walking natural disaster to nature’s last, lone Samurai.  “These are popcorn movies,” the director continues, “but they are filled with metaphor.  And though the themes have changed over the years, they all leave you with the same warning: that if you push too hard against nature, nature’s going to push back.”

     

    In the aftermath of World War II, Japan’s The Toho Co., Ltd. assembled a team of Japanese filmmaking legends to create a new kind of monster.  Willed to life through a latex-and-bamboo monster suit, a meticulously engineered 1/25th scale model of Tokyo and masterful filmmaking, Godzilla roared onto the screen in Ishirō Honda’s genre-defining masterpiece “Gojira,” and has resonated and reverberated through the global cultural imagination ever since, cementing his place as one of the greatest, most resonant and original creations ever put to film.

     

    Godzilla’s global footprint kicked open the door for Toho to unleash a universe of gigantic creatures in a series of films that would launch the kaiju eiga genre and enthrall and entertain generations of fans.  But apart from Godzilla, none other has been realized on the big screen outside of Japan.

     

    Until now.

     

    With free rein to explore a Monsterverse filled with possibility, the writing team came back with a vision that surprised even its longtime shepherds.  “Mike and Zach found a way to bring Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah into this world that was so organic, it was as if they had always been there,” producer Alex Garcia relates.  “The story dovetailed perfectly with our far-reaching plans for where we want to take these films, but it’s a much bigger, more global adventure than anything we’d ever seen.”

     

    The quest to make Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah live again on the big screen fueled an epic collaboration that brought together a legion of creative collaborators—many propelled by their own connection to the seminal Toho creations—and kicked off a sprawling production that would open out the Monsterverse and bring the secret government agency Monarch into the light.

     

    “We followed in the footsteps of what Gareth and Jordan had done on ‘Godzilla’ and ‘Kong: Skull Island’ to establish and deepen this world as much as they could,” producer Zach Shields reveals.  “But there’s always more territory to discover with these ancient creatures and Monarch.  And, for us, exploring the secret world of Monarch was total wish fulfillment.  Like stepping behind the locked doors of Area 51, but for giant monsters, or Titans as they’re known at Monarch.  I mean, who wouldn’t want to know what an outfit like that is hiding.  And when you enter their labs and see how much money is being funneled into this operation, that tells you how seriously world powers and private interests are taking this threat.  The wolf is at the door, and Monarch is the thin, blue line.  After that, there’s only Godzilla.”

    MILLIE BOBBY BROWN LEADS CAST OF “GODZILLA II: KING OF THE MONSTERS” 




     

    To give the monster apocalypse “Godzilla II: King of the Monsters” a human face, writer-director Michael Dougherty enlisted an acclaimed, international, culturally diverse cast to bring to life the team of scientists, soldiers and civilians banding together against the monster horde, led by Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown, as Mark, Emma and Madison Russell, respectively.

     

    A sequel to the 2014 blockbuster “Godzilla,” the new film “King of the Monsters” 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.

     

    “I think it's a big old popcorn extravaganza,” cast member Kyle Chandler attests.  “Mike came in with a pretty stunning vision of a world overrun with 500-foot-tall monsters and a story that makes you care about what’s happening to the humans at their feet, and I’m very excited to see them mesh together.  My great expectation for the film is that people sitting in the theater will look up at this vast world and believe it could actually exist.”

     

    “This movie is a veritable cacophony of crazy, ancient super-species and people will feel the action and adventure and have that adrenaline rush,” adds his fellow castmate Vera Farmiga.  “But it’s also important to tell a story that resonates, and I think this is a story that does.  That’s why Godzilla is still such a powerful figure.  He shines a light on real things.  What’s not to love about an atomic-breathing, 800-megaton monster who makes us feel all too human?”  

     

    Taking on her first-ever feature film role, “Stranger Things” phenom Millie Bobby Brown knew she was jumping head-first into the deep end—a marathon shoot with a physically challenging role and a heavy visual effects component.  “But I accepted the challenge and loved it!” she says.  “The whole experience was very exciting.  The action scenes were super-fun—to watch and to do.  Just the scale of everything was so much bigger than anything I’m used to, and I never thought I’d be working with some of these actors.  If people think that just because I’m in the movie I didn’t still fangirl…  I was seriously fangirling,” she laughs.

     

    With Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga playing Brown’s estranged parents, the three didn’t have to work hard to develop a family bond.  “We had a great time,” Chandler says.  “With any film, the final results are important, but it's the process and the people and the friendships that stick with you.  We had a great cast and amazing crew on this.  I don’t think there was any time when we didn’t find the best in it.”  

     

    “It was very easy to snap into that closeness and feel the affection that these characters have,” says Farmiga.  “Millie was just a joy, constantly singing and dancing and teaching me Fortnite dance moves.”

     

    “I taught her how to dab. It’s hot,” Brown quips.  “And Kyle was amazing.  I watched every episode of ‘Friday Night Lights’ so I've been a fan since I was like seven.”
