Godzilla: King of the Monsters does not come out until the end of May, but hype is climbing for the monstrous sequel. The folks at Warner Bros. Pictures seem confidant they have a hit on hand, and a brand-new TV spot has only lent evidence to such an argument.
So, long live the king. If Godzilla is about to get taken out, then fans know he will not go down without a fight.
Recently, social media lit up with posts about a new Godzilla TV spot, and it did not take long of the reel to surface online. The promo hit up Reddit after a fan known as /tbrack25 posted the footage after it seemed to air during March Madness.
The reel is short as expected, but it packs plenty of action. It begins with a short introduction and then Godzilla letting out a roar. Several other beasts are shown before fans are told there at 17 total monsters out there at the moment.
The clip continues to show various shots of Godzilla in battle with King Ghidorah, a three-headed dragon from Toho's classic Gozilla catalog. At one point, the promo appears to show the newcomer being put in a chokehold by Godzilla, and the King of the Monsters finished out the TV spot by letting off some stunning atomic breath.
As the premiere date for this sequel looms, more and more footage is finding its way to fans. This past weekend, lucky fans at WonderCon were treated to a special look at Godzilla: King of the Monsters at a panel. A piece of super-exclusive footage was screened for fans, and descriptions of the reel have since hit the Internet. So, if you want to learn more about the sequel's epic story, you can check out those details here.
