Godzilla is fast approaching theaters at long last, and fans are ready to greet the kaiju with open arms. After a lengthy wait, the monster will show up in Godzilla: King of the Monsters by the month’s end, and the film has dropped its first clip to keep fans hyped.
So, buckle up. To say this clip is intense would be putting things lightly, and Godzilla knows it.
The clip, which can be found above, is a short one at under a minute. Fans are brought into a scene midway as Monarch appears to be on high alert. With a special team stuck in an underwater base, a group of scientists are seen scrambling. It is then Dr. Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler) steps in to calm everyone and deescalate the situation by asking for all weapons to be lowered.
After the base’s shields are raised, Russell and Dr. Ishiro Serizawa came face to face with Godzilla. It is noted that the kaiju is lighting up in a sort of intimidation display, and a younger scientist can be heard saying he is thoroughly intimidated before the clips ends.
The suspenseful footage gets at the heart of Godzilla as mankind is seen living in awe (and fear) of the behemoth. Treated as a god of old, there is no end to Godzilla’s might, and this foreboding scene makes it clear the kaiju is on a mission. And if humanity is lucky, this mission won’t leave San Francisco in disarray once more.

When these ancient superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance."
