Godzilla: King of the Monsters lives up to the title in new image

Godzilla: King of the Monsters Mike Dougherty

Hype is building for GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS, TRICK ' TREAT director Mike Dougherty's sequel to Gareth Edwards' 2014 GODZILLA. A couple weeks ago, Dougherty took to his Twitter account to announce that work has been completed on the film well ahead of its release date, and today the director shared an awesome new image from the film, one that shows the title character looking like a complete badass on a dark and stormy night, illuminated by a lightning strike.

A scaled down version of the image can be seen above. Click on Dougherty's tweet to see it slightly larger:

While I didn't like the pacing of GODZILLA '14 and was disappointed that Edwards chose to give Godzilla so little screentime, I have hope Dougherty is going to have more Godzilla in his Godzilla movie, and this new image gives me even more faith that Dougherty has made the sort of Godzilla movie I want to see.

Written by Dougherty, his KRAMPUS co-writer Zach Shields, and GODZILLA / KONG: SKULL ISLAND's Max Borenstein, 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.

The film stars Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Zhang Ziyi, Aisha Hinds, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Randy Havens, Jonathan Howard, Anthony Ramos, Bradley Whitford, and Elizabeth Ludlow, with Jason Liles, Richard Dorton, and Alex Maxson providing the motion capture performances for the three heads of King Ghidorah.

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS is set to reach theatres on May 31, 2019.
