Godzilla: King of the Monsters has just released yet another teaser for the upcoming sequel that features the roar of one of the creatures in the film. This teaser is one of many recently unveiled glimpses of what to expect from Godzilla’s next outing, the follow-up to his titular Warner Bros. reboot in 2014.
The Godzilla franchise is always evolving, but this particular incarnation of the character seems to be taking cues from the early Godzilla movies. In King of the Monsters, classic foes like Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah have all been teased on the movie’s site, a viral marketing page for “Monarch Sciences.” The first teaser trailer features star Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) trying to reach out to Monarch via HAM radio before the signal is filled with screams of the dying. It appears that Monarch will be the focus of the new film, a resistance of sorts for the humans fighting for survival in a world plagued by giant creatures like Godzilla.
On the Twitter page for Monarch Sciences, a new video teased the distorted roar of one of the creatures in the new film. The video is short, showing a meter displaying the rising sound as the creature roars louder. It is unclear which monster in particular is being teased but it is likely to be one of the three confirmed villains in the film, given that it differs from Godzilla’s signature scream. Other teasers on the Twitter feed include a “Godzilla Tracker” and an announcement about activity regarding a “Monster Zero” in Antarctica.

The first Godzilla in the “MonsterVerse” was received generally well upon release, with audiences praising the balance of both grit and truth to form. The human cast was strongly led by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor Johnson, and King of Monsters also features a powerful cast including Brown, Ken Watanabe (who will reprise his role from the first film) and Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights).
King of the Monsters is expected to not only elevate the franchise but expand the films' universe before Godzilla faces off against King Kong in 2020, connecting the two properties in Warner Bros.’ MonsterVerse. Hopefully, this latest teaser is just one of many still on the way as Comic-Con unfolds, and we can get an even closer look at what the creatures in Godzilla: King of the Monsters will look like.
