This new Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer is over-the-top and cornball yet incredibly enjoyable. While maintaining the somber look and feel of Gareth Edwards’ 2014 GODZILLA, the new film seems to be fully embracing the approach of Toho’s 1960s films, which portrayed the radioactive monsters as the protector of humanity.
