AceShowbiz - Another glimpse of "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" has arrived in the form of a sneak-peek video. Shared by Millie Bobby Brown via her official Instagram account, the less-than-one-minute clip offers the first footage of the movie.
It features Brown's character Madison trying to contact Monarch, the monster-investigating unit introduced in 2014's "Godzilla", via radio. She seeks help, but the sound of chaos that she hears in response only scares her.
In the "Godzilla" sequel, the "Stranger Things" star plays the daughter of Dr. Emma Russell, portrayed by Vera Farmiga. Dr. Russell is described as a scientist working for the beastie-hunting organization Monarch.
Kyle Chandler is also added as a new cast member, playing Mark Russell, Emma's ex-husband and Madison's father. Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins return as Dr. Ishiro Serizawa and Dr. Vivienne Graham, respectively. Together, the three will embark on a rescue mission.
Michael Dougherty directs the movie and writes the script along with Zach Shields and Max Borenstein. Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull serve as producers.
The 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. When these ancient super-species-thought to be mere myths-rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.
Dougherty previously said that after the events in "Godzilla", people live with fear that there may be other similar creatures on the planet. "The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting," Dougherty explained to Entertainment Weekly. Godzilla hasn't been seen since that destructive finale, "but there's paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we're threatened by others like his kind."
The movie will head into theaters across the nation on May 31, 2019.
