Back on May 22nd, Godzilla: King of the Monsters writer/director Michael Dougherty shared a radar image of the fierce, 3-headed fiend King Ghidorah. It thrilled Kaiju and MUTO fans to no end, but there might have been an angle; perhaps Dougherty was preparing us for disappointment to follow.
Announced the Friday afternoon before a long holiday weekend, perhaps Legendary Pictures hoped fans wouldn’t notice—but we did: Godzilla: King of the Monsters is being delayed. Originally slated for a March 22, 2019 release date, we can now expect to see Godzilla: King of the Monsters on May 30, 2019.
It’ll be a while until we get a trailer, but here’s the gist of what we know so far:
Official Synopsis: 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.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, and Sally Hawkins. We’ll keep you posted on all Godzilla related news as details emerge. Stay tuned! In the meantime, check out the trailer and synopsis for 2014’s Godzilla below.
