Rodan Soars In New Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Trailer

by Erik Amaya

Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters. And while it defines Godzilla’s role in the special effects extravaganza, all we can focus on is Rodan, who comes to wondrous life in his few scenes.

There is a human component as well, with Millie Bobbie Brown apparently bonding with Godzilla, Monarch making itself known to the world and Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) announcing his plan to prop up Godzilla as the defender of the human race. But none of that really matters as Kaiju like King Ghidorah and Mothra make their Hollywood debuts.
I wonder if Mothra’s minders, the tiny twins who sing to her, will make the leap to big budget studio tentpoles or be cast aside as too much hokum.
Nonetheless, the monster action looks spectacular here as Godzilla becomes less of a lumbering menace and more heroic. Also, Rodan’s barrel roll later in the trailer illustrates how much fun these monster movies can be. Well, at least we’re hoping it will be fun.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters hits theaters on May 31st.
