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.
Interestingly, while previous reports had pegged the sequel's title as Godzilla: King Of The Monsters, the official press release never actually refers to the film by any title, meaning that it might be changing before its theatrical release in 2019.
Michael Dougherty is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Zach Shields. The film stars newcomers Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, and Zhang Ziyi. Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins will be reprising their roles from Gareth Edwards' Godzilla.
Godzilla 2 hits theaters on March 22nd, 2019.
