The sequel to Legendary’s GODZILLA (2014) will feature King Ghidorah, Mothra, and Rodan in some capacity, alongside brand new creations. It is now scheduled for a May 31st, 2019 tentpole release. Only studio-confirmed attributes of G:KOTM will be posted on this page.
Official Synopsis: The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological 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 super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Directed by: Michael Dougherty
Filming for G:KOTM commenced on June 19th, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia (USA). Click here for the full press release from Legendary.
LEGENDARY confirmed to SKREEONK.com on February 22nd, 2017 that the title of the film will be GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS, and not KING OF MONSTERS as previously stated in their initial press release:
We reached out to the press department to get the official word for you guys so we can all know once and for all, as the incorrect title is still in use within the press:
The title is confirmed to be GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS, and not KING OF MONSTERS as previously released.
Sheana Knighton of Principal Communications Group, swiftly responded to us on behalf of Legendary’s Press division:
Thank you for checking – the correct title is Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

It seems the initial press release included a typo, and the film will indeed share the full title with the U.S. release of the 1954 classic Gojira, known in the states as (you guessed it) Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The initial confusion sprung from their announcement using the title KING OF MONSTERS without the “The”. Confusion over the title is still, unfortunately, very prevalent. We’re still seeing it used as recently as today by reputable sources such as Variety, Empire, and JoBlo, and frequently visited sites like IMDB still have the wrong title listed. We felt it’d be helpful to ask and get official confirmation from the studio – Still seeing a lot of articles, friends, and sources using the wrong title – including us recently! Either way, we’re happy to have official confirmation of the title now.
We’ve updated our own site accordingly and hopefully this will help other sites retain the correct title as well. Thanks for following us here at Skreeonk.com!
