Godzilla is such a misunderstood creature.
Yes, he’s bigger than a skyscraper. Yes, he looks like a people-eating monster. Yes, he breathes radioactive fire.
But deep within, he’s benevolent. He’s loving. He wants to help humanity.
At least, that’s what Dr. Ishiro Serizawa thinks. He and his fellow scientists within the crypto-zoological agency known as Monarch are studying Godzilla – and other titans – to determine which ones are good and which ones are bad.
Sadly, though, the U.S. government wants all titans destroyed… Godzilla included.
Many people agree with the government. Who can blame them? These mythical super-creatures destroyed cities and killed countless people when they unexpectedly rose to the surface. They lived undisturbed within the earth for millennia – and most people want them to go back.
The film Godzilla: King of the Monsters (PG-13) opens this weekend, starring Ken Watanabe (Godzilla) as Serizawa; Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring series) as his colleague, Emma Russell; and Kyle Chandler (Manchester by the Sea) as Russell’s ex-husband, Mark.
