A few years back, audiences were treated to the 2014 reboot Godzilla. While the movie may not have been as strong as it could have been (at least not in this writer’s opinion), it was well received enough (and it made enough money) to justify not only a sequel, but an entire mega-franchise that will eventually culminate in King Kong and Godzilla butting heads.
This year saw the release of the second entry in the franchise with Kong: Skull Island. It was another strong performing film that really helped lay the groundwork for what’s too come. However, as excited as we all are to see King Kong and Godzilla’s clashing on the big screen, we will get to see the Japanese kaiju take on another threat by itself first in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Director Mike Dougherty has been waist-deep in production for some time now (in fact, he’s nearly 70 days into production), and today, he took to Twitter to share a a new image from the set.
Have a look!

It’s hard to say for sure, but it looks like they’re shooting on a sound stage, and that they’re using a projection screen to show off Godzilla — perhaps as an in-depth eyeline for the actors. In having them react to more than just a dot or puppet, it may actually bring a stronger performance, especially for younger actors. But that’s all just speculation. Whatever it’s used for, it certainly makes for a fun set photo for him to show off.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters — while a standalone Godzilla movie — won’t only feature Godzilla in it. In addition to everyone’s favorite over-sized lizard, it’s also set to feature the likes of Mothra, Rodan, and the three-headed King Ghidorah.
Set to star in the film are Kyle Chandler, Sally Hawkins, Vera Farmiga, Stranger Thing’s Millie Bobby Brown, and Ken Watanabe.
