'Godzilla' Sequel Unveils First Look at the King of Monsters

Director Mike Dougherty shares a new set photo featuring what looks like a cockpit with a projection of the titular creature on a screen behind it.

AceShowbiz - As filming on "Godzilla" sequel is currently underway, a new photo from the Atlanta, Georgia set has made its way out online via Twitter. Director Mike Dougherty has taken to the micro-blogging site to share the pic which offers the first look at the titular monster in the upcoming sequel titled "Godzilla: King of Monsters".

"Day 69, @GodzillaMovie," the 42-year-old filmmaker writes alongside the photo which shows what looks like the cockpit of a plane with a projection of the titular creature on a screen behind it. Judging from its sturdy build and visible lack of neck in this shot, it seems like the massive creature is wearing some kind of armor.

"Godzilla: King of Monsters" is set for a March 22, 2019 release in the United States. Dougherty is directing the follow-up to the 2014 monster film from a script he co-wrote with Zach Shields and Max Borenstein. It's being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull, with Shields, Barry H. Waldman, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers and Alexandra Mendes co-producing for Legendary.

The upcoming sci-fi, action flick reportedly has a family, played by Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown, at its core. Zhang Ziyi, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Sally Hawkins, Bradley Whitford, Charles Dance, Aisha Hinds, Thomas Middleditch and Elizabeth Ludlow are among the supporting cast members.

It 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.
