Godzilla might not be the only kaiju on the block these days, but he is the one everyone is waiting on. Next summer, the monster is slated to appear in a long-awaited sequel to his 2014 outing, and a brand-new trailer for the film surfaced not too long ago.
For fans lucky enough to attend Brazil’s CCPX, the comic convention went big this year with surprises. Not only did exclusive footage from Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Homecoming drop at the event, but Godzilla: King of the Monsters screened its second trailer to audiences there.
While the reel has not been made public yet, Godzilla fans have been quick to hit up social media with reactions. Not long ago, Steven Weintraub of Collider shared a firsthand reaction to the trailer, and his posts have fans feeling real good.

“Loaded with monsters & mayhem. Opens with [Millie Bobby Brown] calling for help on a radio and closes with what appears to be a massive battle between monsters in a city. Can't wait to see the fights,” Weintraub wrote.
Continuing, the reporter shared a few new details about all of the kaiju in the second trailer.
“The new [Godzilla: King of the Monsters] trailer has humanity wondering which of these creatures are here to hurt us and which are here to protect us. Ken Watanabe mentions we would be lucky if humanity is Godzilla's pet.”
Right now, fans are keeping a close eye on social media to see when this second trailer will go public. The new reel marks the second look fans have gotten at Godzilla: King of the Monsters ahead of its Summer 2019 debut. The film shared its first-look with fans earlier this year at San Diego Comic-Con, giving fans a taste of Godzilla’s long-awaited encounter with Rodan, Mothra, and even King Ghidorah.
