The trailers for the new Godzilla movie have been amazing, but the marketing campaign isn’t the clearest. What’s there to know besides the fact that awesome-looking monsters are going to destroy things for our entertainment?
For the true movie lover? Plenty. Here are the connections they aren’t advertising.
There’s a Monster Universe.
Godzilla – King of the Monsters is a sequel to Kong – Skull Island. Sort of.
For unknown reasons, Warner Brothers is not advertising the new movie as a sequel to Godzilla (2014), the first movie in the Monsterverse. Kong – Skull Island is the second movie in the Monsterverse. It features a cut-scene at the end of the credits where the main characters are told Kong is not the only monster, and then shown archival footage of ancient cave drawings of Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, and a battle between King Ghidorah and Godzilla.
The ultimate Godzilla movie is coming next year.
A fourth Monsterverse movie, Godzilla vs. Kong, has been announced for 2020. I know. I can’t wait either.
