The first trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters was revealed during a Warner Bros. Pictures panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The sequel to Gareth Edwards' 2014 film Godzilla, the movie ditches the majority of the original's cast outside of Sally Hawkins and Ken Watanabe, who will reprise their roles from the previous entry in the series.
The dramatic new trailer for the forthcoming film introduces the impressive new cast, which features Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O'Shea Jackson Jr., and Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi.
Alongside showing the titular monster, the trailer also teases some of Godzilla's classic enemies from the original Japanese-produced Toho series. Not only does the trailer allude to the appearance of Mothra and Rodan, but it also offers a glimpse at the three-headed dragon King Ghidorah.
Fans of the Toho series of Godzilla films will instantly recognize the designs of the monsters, which new director Michael Dougherty appears to have remained pretty faithful to. Dougherty previously directed the 2015 comedy horror Krampus, as well as 2007 anthology horror film Trick 'r Treat.
Warner Bros. first officially teased Godzilla: King of the Monsters earlier this week with a brief scene of Millie Bobby Brown's character, Madison Russell, attempting to reach Monarch Sciences, a resistance-like group fighting for survival.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will hit theaters May 31, 2019.
