Godzilla King of Monsters Comic Con Trailer

“Godzilla: King of the Monsters” Delivers Awe-Inspiring Comic Con Trailer

With no big presence for Marvel or Disney, Warner Bros. took command of the Hall H stage at San Diego Comic Con this weekend. While they unveiled several strong trailers, most people (myself included) think the trailer for next summer's Godzilla: King of the Monsters was indeed the best.

Starring a murderer's row of talent from the best TV shows of the last decade, the sequel to 2014's Godzilla looks like it's taking everything to the next level. While that film had also had great trailers and some truly magnificent set pieces (including the famous HALO Jump), it had little in the way of connective tissue. This follow-up from Michael Dougherty (Trick 'r Treat) will hopefully correct that, and it looks like Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) will be our anchor.

Set to a version of Debussy's "Clair de Lune" that fades beautifully into the Godzilla theme, this is already on my list for the most anticipated films of next summer.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters unfortunately doesn't open until May 31, 2019.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
