The titans are coming and there are apparently 17 of them. The latest trailer of Godzilla: King of the Monsters dropped today, with director Michael Dougherty declaring it’s the final one before the film’s release. We get even more monsters, monsters fighting, and Bradley Whitford whispering, “Thank God-zilla.”
We learn even more about the world of the film, especially that these titans are moving like a pack and their alpha is, of course, King Ghidorah. And the only one who can stop him is our king, Godzilla, who emerges from the watery depths with a beautiful burst of his atomic breath. Like a beacon in the night, he will lead humanity into victory (hopefully).

But in this sea of monsters, it seems that Mothra may still be another ally to humanity, as she lets Millie Bobby Brown’s character, Madison Russell, touch her. In previous Godzilla films, Mothra has been an ally, helping Godzilla fight against monsters that threaten the human race. It looks like he’ll need all the help he can get, too, with Ghidorah kicking major kaiju ass with all three of his heads. It also looks like he can also shoot lightning bolts out of his body, which makes him even more scary. This trailer doubles down on the epic monster battles, which will level entire cities.
Here is the official plot synopsis from Warner Bros.:
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.
Millie Bobby Brown is making her feature film debut in Godzilla, starring as the daughter to scientist, Dr. Emma Russell, played by Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring). The rest of the cast is just as impressive, featuring Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street), Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Aisha Hinds (Star Trek Into Darkness), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton), and Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai), just to name a few.
