After the success of the adaptation of the most famous kaiju in cinema, Godzilla, in 2014, it immediately suggested the production of a sequel. In Godzilla almost 600 million dollars were raised, so Warner Bros and Legendary Entertainment promoted a sequel, Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters, whose premiere is scheduled for May 31 , and which will lead to a third installment (scheduled for 2020 ) with which this trilogy will conclude.
What we know about ‘Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters’
The success of the Godzilla remake in 2014 was based on a brutal photograph, master shots thanks to good direction, and a good dose of action. The new movie wants to repeat the formula, although instead of the director of the first part, Gareth Edwards (who would later sign for Star Wars in Rogue One), the sequel is directed by Michael Dougherty.
In this second installment, humanity is threatened by the fight between three monsters that believed themselves to be myths, and that emerge to the surface to fight in memorable battles with which they intend to compete for supremacy.

The synopsis offered by the producer and some merchandising toys anticipate that the monster Godzilla is going to face the mutant pterosaur Rodan, the giant moth Mothra, and Ghidorah, a three-headed dragon. To save his humanity , the Monarch crypto-zoological agency will have to face these three beasts.
At the Monarch agency, actors Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins reprise their roles as scientists, but the rest of the cast is new. In fact, the casting of the previous film was very weak, so this time it will be tested with new faces : Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven in Stranger Things), Kyle Chandler (who already appeared in Peter Jackson’s King Kong),Vera Farmiga (the exorcist Lorrain in The Warren Files) and Charles Dance , better known as Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones.
Godzilla 2 trailer release and release date
Japanese monster fans have been most anxious for weeks, and no wonder. On December 10, Warner Bros. released the first trailer for the film, a 2 minute and 25 second preview in which you can see action, a lot of tension, and a succulent display of special effects .
Since then, the film already has an extensive promotional campaign that includes several trailers, posters and images that reveal some details of the film.

The new movie is part of the so-called Monsterverse (or Monstroverse) , the universe of monsters orchestrated by Legendary and Warner that includes the movie King Kong: Skull Island (2017) starring Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson. The icing on the cake is expected in the third installment of the saga, when Godzilla is expected to face King Kong.
Godzilla 2 was originally scheduled to be released on June 8, 2018, but it was delayed a year and, although its release was scheduled for March 22, 2019, the premiere of movies like Captain Marvel made the date rethink the producers, which finally opted for May 31. It will be the only blockbuster to be released that day, although it will compete for a month with The Avengers: Endgame. There is less left to know who will be the true King of the Monsters.
