Movie Info & Cast
Our favorite giant atomic lizard is back and he’s not alone! The sequel to 2014’s Godzilla picks up with the Monarch organization faced with not one but four giant kaiju. Godzilla is joined by classic Japanese movie monsters Rodan, Mothra, and the three-headed King Ghidorah.
As the crypto-zoological agency Monarch seeks to understand and control the monsters, another agency surfaces with its own ideas for the godlike beasts. Dr. Emma Russell (Vera Farmiga) and her daughter Madison (Millie Bobby Brown) are caught in the middle. They scramble to survive as Godzilla’s battle with his fellow monsters shakes the Earth to its core.

Did You Know?
- The film has the same kaiju lineup as Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964) (Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster).
- This movie states that Ghidorah is a fairly recent discovery thus Monarch has had little time to study him. Except that the post-credit scene in Kong: Skull Island (2017), set in 1973, shows that Monarch knows about him along with Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra. However, this was simply a cave painting that offered a physical description of Ghidorah and not much else, Ghidorah himself was discovered by Monarch in 2016 frozen in ice.

- Madison Russell: Hello? Is anyone there? I'm trying to reach... I'm tryin' to reach MONARCH.
Atom User Reviews
Critics are dumb, this movie is easy to follow and is a true Godzilla movie. Just what we wanted.
Movie knocked me out edge of your seat
King of the Monsters delivers what its genre requires. Truly awesome monster scenes fill the screen, often imbued with emotional resonance by music cues.
Easily the most satisfying of his Hollywood-produced adventures and a respectable cousin to the long string of Japanese ones, the sequel to Gareth Edwards' admirably serious but dullish 2014 film is the first to suggest any promise for what Legendary is calling its MonsterVerse — a franchise in which the Japanese kaiju world meshes with that of Hollywood's favorite oversized ape, King Kong.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is as narratively incomprehensible as it is visually, with an even-more-talented roster of overqualified actors tasked with carrying the film’s insipid story and trying to make their characters’ bizarre decisions seem halfway plausible.
