Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Director
Michael Dougherty
Certificate
12A
Running Time
131 mins

The 35th (count ’em!) Godzilla film and a direct sequel to Gareth Edwards’ 2014 reboot, this 65th anniversary flick is part two of a projected trilogy that will conclude with next year’s franchise-uniting monster smackdown Godzilla vs Kong. Excited yet? Oh, please yourselves.

This bridging episode has our boy making something of a mess as he takes on fellow big beasts Mothra, Rodan, and – ulp! – the three-headed King Ghidorah. Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Charles Dance and Sally Hawkins are among those assuming puny human duties.
