Before Godzilla stomps his way to San Diego Comic-Con Entertainment Weekly have debuted our first official look at the upcoming sequel, King of the Monsters!

Revealing Godzilla's mighty atomic breath in an exclusive movie still (below), EW also caught up with director Michael Dougherty, below are excerpts of their interview:

The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting,” says director Michael Dougherty, whose previous credits include the horror movie Krampus. 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.

He goes on to mention Rodan's involvement and the other monsters:

Rodan’s been kind of a sidekick character, but I’ve always had a soft spot for him” says Dougherty. “In a lot of ways he’s more powerful than Godzilla. He’s like this winged A-bomb. I think we’ve done him justice.” But let’s not forget Godzilla himself, who reveals he has the ability to exhale “atomic breath.” Can Dougherty expand on that description? “Not without giving away too much,” he laughs. “But it takes place at a very key moment and it’s a sort of call to arms.

I've waited 4 years for this moment.


MemberTitanosaurusJul-12-2018 6:41 PM

That looks amazing.

I Meme Everything

The updated design of Godzilla looks so cool.

Sci-Fi King25

MemberGiganJul-12-2018 7:07 PM

Dorsal spines and Atomic Breath are big improvements from 2014. Really hyped for Rodan too. 


(Also did Godzilla fatter?)

AdminGodzillaJul-12-2018 7:12 PM

Now THAT looks like an atomic ray.

Can I get a second pair of eyes to confirm that tubby's spines are bigger and/or redesigned a bit? That's one adjustment I thought would really improve the design and it looks like a shade of Millennium Godzilla spines made it in there.


ModeratorGiganJul-12-2018 7:25 PM

When nobody understands that his chest his puffed out cause he is exhaling lol. He isn't tubby.

The Legend of Brian

MemberBaragonJul-12-2018 7:26 PM

I think you're right Gman. I did some tinkering to the image with what I could atm and it definitely seems like they're bigger.

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaJul-12-2018 7:34 PM

Yeah, I've seen some blown up high-res photos just now and it appears there's some MireGoji added into tub's back plates. Good call.

I also dig the spiral around the beam.

Solid shot. Looks like Dougherty's been watching some Shiny G.


MemberTitanosaurusJul-12-2018 7:38 PM

Can't wait for the marketing and merchandise for this film. Especially the toy models of that design. Hope it doesn't disappoint. (Nobody jinx it or quote me on this.)


MemberBaragonJul-12-2018 7:45 PM

Hope Rodan and Ghidorah survive this. I was scared Dougherty might mess up Godzilla's bottom jaw like shin but the breath looks good so far. DON'T MESS WITH HIS MOUTH IT'S PERFECT! Nice dorsal plates!

The Legend of Brian

MemberBaragonJul-12-2018 7:46 PM

Exactly. Hell I do not mind Dougherty borrowing from Shin, it's the highest form of flattery and Godzilla looks badass in this pose. This alone has convinced me the movie will at least look good, which is fair since it's the same cinematographer. Definitely a bit of a tub, but let's be honest, Shin is THICC.


MemberTitanosaurusJul-12-2018 8:03 PM

I'm looking forward to seeing how Rodan will be portrayed.


MemberTitanosaurusJul-12-2018 8:12 PM

Yes! Yes! Yes!


MemberTitanosaurusJul-12-2018 8:16 PM

But judging by the stormy background, that begs the question: Does he get more powerful with more electricity? In other words, does electricity enhance his own abilities? And on that note, has he gained more since the last time we saw him? So many questions, yet so much more anticipation and excitement. Let's just wait and see.

The Hooded Figure

MemberTitanosaurusJul-12-2018 9:30 PM

All the more to looking forward to this film.

Sci-Fi King25

MemberGiganJul-12-2018 9:57 PM

Anyone else think it kind of looks like the Heisei Godzilla with the size, larger dorsal spines, rounded tail, and even a small spiral around the Atomic Breath?


MemberTitanosaurusJul-12-2018 10:39 PM



btw, What is that object in front of Godzilla? Is it a submarine?

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaJul-12-2018 11:24 PM



MemberTitanosaurusJul-13-2018 4:42 AM

Holy ****! It's better than last time. It's back. Godzilla has a proper Atomic Breath again! No more thin lasers like in Shin and the anime. Furthermore this doesn't look like the weak blast from 2014. This is a full powered blast. I can't wait to see this in battle! I love it! I love that the spines are bigger! I just hope the eyes and teeth are bigger too. But thankfully Godzilla's signature weapon has been given justice. The King has returned!


MemberMothra LarvaeJul-13-2018 8:04 AM

Love this image! Especially because you know he's likely firing his breath at a certain prehistoric postdoctoral ;)


MemberMothra LarvaeJul-13-2018 8:05 AM

*Pterodactyl oops

Im Durp

MemberBaragonJul-13-2018 8:52 AM

Well I like the small changes they made. Would have been nice to slim him down a bit but overall an improvement. So excited for the upcoming comic con.


Glad to know there's another Rodan fan, I knew I liked something about Dougherty


ModeratorGiganJul-14-2018 9:12 AM

His stomach is being puffed out from his beam. It isn't his actual size lol, why does nobody recognize this.


MemberTitanosaurusJul-14-2018 9:45 AM

also, his head is looking straight up, so that might make his belly look bigger than 2014. if anything his stomach is the same as 2014.


MemberTitanosaurusJul-14-2018 2:34 PM

Well I see someone (probably the head admin) changed the website and not only used this image as a background, but also did a complete 180-360 on where the links are. Nice job.


AdminSpaceGodzillaJul-15-2018 7:14 AM

Haha thanks! Still got a few things to add before the update is 100% complete, but I'm glad you like it so far!


MemberTitanosaurusJul-15-2018 6:55 PM

Chris You're very welcome for the compliment.


MemberMothra LarvaeJul-16-2018 5:11 PM

HOLY ****! GODZILLA BACK! We better get a trailer through Comic Con. Been waiting four years! Can't wait any longer!
