Godzilla: King of the Monsters - Final Trailer - Now Playing In Theaters.
Five years after the existence of giant creatures known as "Titans" was exposed to the world, Dr. Emma Russell, a paleobiologist who works for the Titan-studying organization Monarch, and her daughter Madison witness the birth of a larva dubbed Mothra. Emma calms Mothra down with the "Orca", a device capable of emitting frequencies that can attract Titans or alter their behavior. A group of eco-terrorists, led by Alan Jonah, suddenly attack the base, slaughter everyone and kidnap Emma and Madison. Mothra flees and pupates under a waterfall. Monarch scientists Dr. Ishirō Serizawa and Dr. Vivienne Graham approach former employee Dr. Mark Russell, Emma's ex-husband and Madison's father, to help track them down. Mark is reluctant at first, due to his hatred for Godzilla (whom he blames for the death of Madison's brother Andrew), but he eventually agrees. The Monarch team follows Godzilla to Antarctica, where Jonah intends to free a three-headed Titan codenamed "Monster Zero". Emma frees and awakens Monster Zero, which kills several Monarch members, including Dr. Graham, before battling Godzilla and escaping. The team then learn that Emma was not kidnapped by the terrorists, but is secretly working with them. Emma contacts Monarch and argues that the Titans must be awakened in order to heal the Earth from the damages that humans have caused. From a Monarch bunker in Boston, Jonah and Emma use the Orca's signal remotely to awaken another Titan, Rodan, in Mexico. Monarch lures Rodan into fighting the approaching Monster Zero, but Monster Zero swiftly defeats Rodan before being ambushed by Godzilla, who severs his left head. During the fight, the Navy launches a prototype missile called the "Oxygen Destroyer", seemingly killing Godzilla. Completely unaffected, Monster Zero regrows his lost head and awakens all the other dormant Titans around the world, with Rodan submitting to his rule. Disillusioned, Madison disowns her mother.
