Yes my friends, things are about to get big in theaters everywhere as today is the day that “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” opens. I’ve run quite a few posts relating to the film and some of the other Godzilla news over the last few months and the movie items can be examined by clicking HERE). There was also the announcement about an Official Website and a Book Store Takeover which can be examined by clicking the highlighted text. Once you’ve done all that we can continue to the Official Theatrical Poster, some premise and casting information. I’ve even included some of the other posters that I found just before release so enjoy.
Premise: 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 (thanks Wiki)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m excited for this one for sure because as you might have noticed in the final trailer, Godzilla IS actually a major part of the film. That’s a sarcastic comment to the fact that he was barely in the previous installment that we got in 2014 but I digress. My original plan was to see this one on the opening day in the local theater but I forgot that I would be dealing with a few different conventions on the same date so it looks like the fastest I can catch this will be either on Monday or Wednesday of the coming week. I’m not too worried about spoilers since I will be pretty much offline during the conventions outside of sending tweets and Instagram posts out to the cyberverse more than checking to see what everyone’s status is on Facebook. So what about you folks? Are you seeing this film nice and early or are you still trying to find the time to see “Avengers: Endgame”? I am stoked that the film is heading closer to being the highest grossing film of all time and as you read this is now under $100 million dollars away from doing so but enough on that since this post is all hail the King Of The Monsters, Godzilla. Chime in your opinions but please should you see it no spoilers. You can do those when I post my own film review and add your notions to the mix. See you next time.
