The USA version of Godzilla was rebooted in 2014 and it didn't take long to hear that it would be getting a sequel. After a little bit of confusion, the sequel's title was set: Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
The sequel is a little less than a year away and today we are getting the first images from the film. Two of the key cast members will be Vera Farmiga who plays Dr. Emma Russell and Millie Bobby Brown who plays Dr.Russell's daughter Madison. According to director Michael Dougherty, the pair are kidnapped by "a mysterious organization, with their own plans for the creatures. Gee, we wonder who that might be. Farmiga says her character:
"… has figured out a way to communicate with the creatures and potentially control them using their bioacoustics on a sonar level. So she is like a DJ for the monsters."
Great. Dancing with kaiju.

Though Dougherty heaps some praise on the winged kaiju Rodan, going as far as to say:
"In a lot of ways he's more powerful than Godzilla. He's like this winged A-bomb."
We won't, unfortunately, see an official image of him today. We do get a shot of Godzilla releasing his atomic breath though:

Hopefully we'll see the other kaiju before Godzilla: King of the Monsters stomps into theaters May 31, 2019.
