Ever wanted to see Godzilla beat up King Ghidorah set to LL Cool J’s “Mama Said Knock You Out”? Well, Warner Bros. seems to think you might want to see that just hours before the launch of Godzilla: King of the Monsters hits theaters.
This short mini-trailer is big on brawls and even bigger on monsters. In one minute, we get more footage of Godzilla beating on Rodan and King Ghidorah than every trailer that came before it. There’s even some Mothra thrown in for good measure. However, If you want to be as unspoiled as possible for the movie, maybe avoid this one.
For anyone else interested, check out the short trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters below:
See, that’s why we warned you before as this one-minute trailer gives a few glimpses of nearly every big fight scene, which could basically be considered a spoiler. Then again, you might just really want to see a bunch of big monster fights scored against some LL Cool J. It’s apparent from many early reactions to the completed film that Godzilla: King of the Monsters is really all about the kaijus. This trailer certainly keeps that aspect front-and-center.
“That’s something that we’re also trying to bring to this film, a mythological, almost biblical, backdrop to these creatures.” Director Michael Dougherty explained in an interview with comicbook.com. “I mean, it’s called Godzilla, so in some ways we’re putting the God back in Godzilla. You know, the idea that these creatures were once worshiped by some ancient civilization. I really loved that about the old movies, you know, that Mothra was this deity. It really opened up the mythology. So, if Mothra existed thousands of years ago, and Godzilla existed thousands of years ago, and Mothra was worshiped by some ancient civilization as was Kong, then it would make sense that the other creatures probably had some contact with human beings at some point too.”
Godzilla: King of the Monsters follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Also, if you haven’t seen any of them already, Godzilla: King of the Monsters certainly has had one of the best poster marketing sprees of any blockbuster in many a moon. Check out just a little sample of the best ones below:
