In this episode, Matt Wallin, Jason Diamond and Mike Seymour look at the visual effects in the latest Godzilla: King of Monsters.
Godzilla is one of the most recognisable symbols of Japanese popular culture worldwide. In the sequel to Gareth Edwards 2014 Godzilla, the new film finds members of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch facing 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.
