godzilla prehistoric movie

Humanity is just a speck of dust to the god-like monsters of the Godzilla franchise, including the King himself. In Legendary’s MonsterVerse franchise, the kaiju creatures have only emerged recently, but the long-dormant monsters are the kinds that can only have existed since the dawn of time.

godzilla king of the monsters rodan

Godzilla may be King of the Monsters, but he’s got a hell of an impressive kingdom. Once the superior monster wreaking havoc on the Earth in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 film Godzilla, the radioactive giant lizard is about to be joined by the Pandora’s box of creatures, including some of Toho’s most famous kaiju, Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.
