Godzilla may be the “King of Monsters” but he isn’t one of them as demonstrated by the latest movie trailer released in Asia.
Dr. Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) tells Lieutenant Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) they can’t kill the true monsters known as Mutos but something can. Ford assumes that he means another monster.
“No, a god,” Dr. Vivienne Graham (Sally Hawkins) corrects him about Godzilla.
The trailer features the first full shot of a Muto walking on all fours but don’t expect this relatively small daikaiju (giant monster) to slug it out on the ground with Godzilla. It’s long legs make it look about as study as a Landstrider from Dark Crystal. Fortunately, they can literally fly circles around Godzilla. Let’s hope this King doesn’t climb any skyscrapers.
Godzilla hits theaters May 16.
