The Hollywood version of Godzilla first introduced in 2014’s GODZILLA returns in GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS, and this time he’s brought some old friends. Which, unless you’re one of those people who goes out of their way to avoid trailers and other promotional materials, you already knew.
Picking up in the aftermath of the 2014 film, the world is still struggling with the sudden realization that humans share their home with giant monsters referred to as titans. But the general public doesn’t know everything, as the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – I mean Monarch – are keeping a lid on the fact that Godzilla and the insect like “Mutos” he fought in the previous film are just the tip of the monster iceberg. As returning scientist and character in charge of exposition Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabee) informs us, there are 17 different titans currently known to the secretive organization.
