Amid the plethora of shared universes at the moment (Marvel, DC et al), there's one that promises to roar louder than most: the Warner Bros. MonsterVerse, which will eventually pit giant lizard Godzilla against rampaging oversized gorilla King Kong.
The newly unveiled teaser for Godzilla: King of the Monsters offers our latest look at the franchise that began with 2014's Godzilla and continued with 2017's Kong: Skull Island. Although we won't see the two beasties go head to head until 2020's Godzilla vs. Kong, this latest entry will no doubt set up the battle nicely.
Intriguingly, the movie offers the first plum movie role to talented young actress Millie Bobby Brown, who's secured a strong global following off the back of her role as Eleven in Netflix smash Stranger Things. Brown is the focus of this new teaser, one that withholds pretty much any information while also generating a fair amount of unease.
In the teaser, Brown's character Madison attempts to contact Monarch, the mysterious government agency assigned with keeping tabs on MUTOs (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism). Where she is and why she's doing it remains unclear at this stage, but her broadcast is interrupted by that iconic screeching roar signalling something big...
Monarch featured in both Godzilla and also the seventies-set Kong: Skull Island, although whether their motivations are for good or evil remains to be seen. Directed by Michael Dougherty, who helmed creepy festive comedy-horror Krampus in 2015, Godzilla: King of the Monsters co-stars Vera Farmiga, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, Bradley Whitford, Kyle Chandler and O'Shea Jackson Jr.
The movie roars into life on May 2019 so tweet us @Cineworld if you think it'll be the most gigantic movie in the series so far. The full trailer is rumoured to be making its debut during this week's San Diego Comic-Con, so stay tuned to the blog for all the latest information.
