I am unbelievably excited to be able to share the newly released official trailer for the upcoming monster flick Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The follow-up to 2014’s Godzilla from Legendary Pictures is due to come out May 31, 2019. As a huge fan of Godzilla and kaiju films in general, I am stoked to see the big screen return of some of Big G’s most notorious foes and allies, including Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah! Check out the fantastic new trailer after the break.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the cryptozoological 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 superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Ah now for the one thing everyone loathes...writing about themselves!
Well for starters, my name is Chuck, and I am a south Jersey transplant living in Amish country. I’ve been a horror fan since 5th grade, about 16 years ago. My horror fandom started when I got my hands on a copy of Jay Anson’s novel The Amityville Horror. The book terrified me, and I knew I just had to watch the movie. An older cousin of mine had a copy of it, and that was the genesis of my obsession with the genre.
Over the years I have expressed my horror fandom in many ways. Since about 2005 I have been regularly attending horror conventions. These have been great ways to amass collectibles, movies, and to meet some of my favorite celebrities. My best friend Mike and I used to run our own horror blog years ago, and we also dabbled in script writing. I am looking forward to going back to writing about horror, something I’ve always loved.
When I’m not working (I work at PNC Bank), my non-horror interests are studying theology and economics, watching Japanese tokusatsu, and doing play-by-play commentary for professional wrestling. I’m also a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society and singing in a Barbershop quartet. Oh, and I’m probably the biggest fan of the Golden Girls you’ll ever meet.
My top 5 horror flicks (definitely subject to change):
1. Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
2. Basket Case (1982)
3. Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
4. The Beyond (1981)
5. Dawn of the Dead (1978)
