It was all about going big at the San Diego Comic Con on Saturday and Warner Bros delivered with the release of first ever trailer for the new version of monster movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters. While fans of the enormous monsters will have to wait another two years for the crossover event Godzilla vs. Kong, the former is headed back into theaters for a sequel before his matchup with the giant ape.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be the third in Legendary's surprisingly well done MonsterVerse that so far comprises the aforementioned 2014 Godzilla, and 2017's Kong: Skull Island. We see Godzilla's atomic breath that looks as attractive as it must be destructive.

Perhaps the single most breathtaking shot comes next as Mothra spreads its handsome, nearly luminescent wings and begins to take flight - there's a poetry to this moment that has not been seen in a monster movie since perhaps the original Mothra was first hatched in 1961. On the left side we see printed "Outpost 32". Perhaps he thinks awakening Rodan from her slumber by igniting that volcano isn't such a good idea?

The trailer sets up the premise of a veritable panoply of larger-than-life monsters all emerging from deep beneath the earth to let us puny members of humanity know the score.

Although 2015's 'Godzilla' had some moments where it excelled and some where it definitely lacked, the one thing pretty much everyone can agree upon was that its trailer - which used music from Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" to brilliant effect - was the best thing about it. "Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history", reads the film's official synopsis. And will the human race survive this titanic jockeying for supremacy? Unfortunately, King of the Monsters won't be out until May 31st, 2019 so like Godzilla himself, we will have to lay in wait to see how it all turns out.
