The monsters are coming and boy can we not wait! 2019 is almost here and some amazing movies are coming out next year. One of the most anticipated movies to come out next year is Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the sequel to 2014 movie Godzilla, which kicked off the Legendary Pictures “MonsterVerse”, which is also home to 2017’s Kong: Skull Island. We recently got the release of the second trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters which further introduced us to the other monsters that will be in the movie; Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah. The movie itself looks epic, but we haven’t really gotten a good look at the new monsters in the movie minus quick shots of them other than Godzilla…until now.
We finally have clear pictures of the monsters with the release of their character posters and man do they not disappoint! So without further ado, let us introduce you to the monsters that will be gracing our screens with their new character posters!
The monster that needs no introduction, the star of the movie, Godzilla. Originally introduced in Japan 1954, he is arguably one of the most famous pop culture monsters of all time. Sometimes he is considered a bad guy because he destroys cities, sometimes he is considered a good guy because he is protecting humans from other monsters. We are still a little unsure of his intentions in the series but it does tend to look like he will be more of a good guy moving forward. He is a giant sea monster that has been exposed to centuries of radiation. He tends to resemble a Komodo Dragon/lizard and is called “Gojira” because it is a conjunction of the words whale and gorilla in Japanese. His strengths are his strong skin, powerful tail, and the power of Atomic Breathe.
The next monster on the list is Mothra. Mothra was first introduced in Japan in 1961. Mothra is obviously a giant moth/monarch monster. According to the movies fake website, Monarch Sciences, it identifies the Yunnan rain forest as Mothra’s location and also states in its adult form to be capable of emitting beta-wave bio-luminescence that can be projected through the intricate patterns on its wings and weaponized into destructive and blinding ‘god rays’. Promotional material also revealed narrower wings, a wider wingspan, long praying mantis-like forearms and legs, and a body design more reminiscent of real-life moths. The markings on her wings are said to mark her as the “Queen of the Monsters”, and that they apparently link Mothra to Godzilla; the King of the Monsters.
The third monster on our list is Rodan. He was first introduced in Japan in 1956. The Japanese name Radon is a contraction of Pteranodon. The monster is considered prehistoric as it resembles a the Pteranodon which is closely related to the time of the dinosaurs. Viral marketing describes him as a titanic bird with the skeletal structure of a Pteranodon, with magma-like qualities serving as plate armor. The film’s promotional website, Monarch Sciences, identifies the fictional island of Isla De Mona (not related to the real life Isla de Mona as the island is shown to be near Mexico) as Rodan’s location and describes him as being 154 ft (46.9 m) tall with a wingspan of 871 ft (265.5 m). It is also stated to be powerful enough to level cities with thunderclaps generated by its wings. Sounds like he will be a villain in this movie.
Arguably the most anticipated monster to be coming to the big screen is King Ghidorah. King Ghidorah was firs introduced in Japan in 1964. This version of Ghidorah stands 521 ft (158.8 m) tall and is referred to as “Monster Zero” by Monarch. Ghidorah has a divergent frontal lobe density in each of its heads, rendering each head capable of independent thoughts. Its scales are capable of running bioelectrical currents through its body and its dermal layer is coated with aurum. It can generate “hurricane-force” winds due to hyper-tensile on the muscle tendons of the wings. Its body’s electro-receptor molecular biology can create electrical currents and localized storm systems as it travels. This results in the stratosphere being torn open by thunder and lightning as it takes flight. look for him to be the big bad monster of the movie.
Well movie lovers, there you have it! The 4 monsters that will be gracing the big screen cause mass amounts of destruction and chaos. The movie looks like it is going to be absolutely epic. The posters displaying the monsters are fantastic. The one specific color and how they are all different showing off a little bit about the monsters makes them even cooler.
