An acclaimed, international, culturally diverse cast brings new life to the monster apocalypse ‘Godzilla II: King of the Monsters’, led by Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown, as Mark, Emma and Madison Russell, respectively.
A sequel to the 2014 blockbuster “Godzilla,” the new film 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.
“My great expectation for the film is that people sitting in the theater will look up at this vast world and believe it could actually exist,” says Kyle. “Besides, what’s not to love about an atomic-breathing, 800-megaton monster who makes us feel all too human?” asks Vera.
Taking on her first-ever feature film role, ‘Stranger Things’ phenom Millie Bobby Brown knew she was jumping head-first into the deep end—a marathon shoot with a physically challenging role and a heavy visual effects component. “But I accepted the challenge and loved it,” she gushes. “The whole experience was very exciting. The action scenes were super-fun—to watch and to do. Just the scale of everything was so much bigger than anything I’m used to, and I never thought I’d be working with some of these actors. If people think that just because I’m in the movie, I didn’t still fangirl… I was seriously fangirling,” she laughs.
When talking about working together as a cast, Vera raves about Millie. “She was just a joy, constantly singing and dancing and teaching me Fortnite dance moves.”
“I taught her how to dab. It’s hot,” Millie quips. “And Kyle was amazing. I watched every episode of ‘Friday Night Lights’ so I’ve been a fan since I was, like, seven.”
‘Godzilla II: King of the Monsters’ is showing in Philippine cinemas this May 29, 2019, and is distributed in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures, a WarnerMedia Company.
