The promotion for the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters has been geared to inspire maximum awe and dread in filmgoers, and successfully so, with each new trailer and promo image getting fans just that little bit more hyped for the colossal clash to come.
The trend continues with a newly unveiled Japanese poster, which teases a fight between King Ghidorah and the Big G against a moody backdrop of smoke and flames. The two covers for the new issue of Total Film aren’t too bad either, both exhibiting the atomic-breathed lizard in all his ominous splendor. Interestingly, in the second of the two covers, you might notice that the army is firing missiles away from Godzilla, rather than at him, suggesting that the military is working with the Titan to fight a common enemy.

While director Michael Dougherty recently mentioned that the film will feature some brand new monsters, the four classic kaiju confirmed to make appearances are Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Mothra and Rodan. As Thomas Middleditch’s character mentioned in the trailer released last December, mankind is going to have to decide which of these creatures are here to protect us, and which are here to threaten us, though it’s already looking like a safe bet that the one with three heads isn’t here to make friends.
Meanwhile, the movie’s non-Titan cast hasn’t been nearly as prominent in the film’s promotion, though seeing how the likes of Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler and Zhang Ziyi are expected to return in 2020’s Godzilla vs. Kong, Godzilla: King of the Monsters would do well to get us invested in a few human characters when the film hits theaters on May 31st, 2019.
