Here's Our First Real Look at GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS

Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, we have our first look at Godzilla: King of Monsters and it looks like monster fans are going to be in for a real treat when next May rolls around.

The movie, which is directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick 'r Treat, Krampus), picks up about five years after the events of the first movie-the same as the two movies themselves by the time King of the Monsters is released-at a time when the world is still understandably shocked over the insanity of actual giant monsters showing up and wreaking havoc.

The new story 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.

Dougherty also reveals that Godzilla has the ability to exhale "atomic breath", although the director remained somewhat hush-hush on the details.

"Rodan's been kind of a sidekick character, but I've always had a soft spot for him" he said. "In a lot of ways he's more powerful than Godzilla". Farmiga plays Dr. Emma Russell, a scientist working for Monarch, while Brown plays her daughter. Michael Dougherty went into some detail about one of those monsters, Rodan, calling him a "winged A-bomb". The pair are kidnapped by what Dougherty describes as "a mysterious organization, with their own plans for the creatures".

The upcoming film stars Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, and Millie Bobby Brown, while also seeing the return of Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins from the 2014 film. Yes folks, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a "Coach Taylor Has to Save His Family" monster movie. Speaking of which, does Dougherty set up that face-off in his film? It hits theaters May 31, 2019.
