Millie Bobby Brown out bad-asses Godzilla in the second trailer for “Godzilla: King of the Monsters.” When all is said and done, there’s no question who the biggest star is in this production.
Brown, 14, took leave from her hit Neflix show “Stranger Things” to jump into an even stranger role as Madison Russell.
She may play the 14-year-old daughter of Emma (Vera Farmiga) and Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler), but she’s become America’s new young-teen sex symbol.
Madison is kidnapped along with her mother, and has a connection to Mothra, one of Godzilla’s arch-enemies.
Godzilla turns out to be the one who is camera shy. The monster only appears in fleeting glimpses. It will be interesting to see how he appears.
The monster has been done so poorly in previous films, the campy amphibian has become a cult classic.
But there are plenty of glimpses of Godzilla’s foes, including the three-headed King Ghidorah, and the CGI looks spot on.
Humans in this movie are reduced to mere spectators, as the monsters battle it out and stomp out civilization in the process.
“Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” isa sequel to 2014’s “Godzilla” from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ MonsterVerse, It hits theaters May 31.
Millie Bobbie Brown will be reprising her “Stranger Things” character “Eleven,” in the third season. But don’t expect to see it until sometime next year.
Netflix’s vice president of original programming Cindy Holland says season three would be released sometime in the summer 2019. She said the delay will be “worth the wait,” according to RadioTimes.
The first trailer, released at San Diego Comic Con, shows Millie deliver a full-on sense of urgency to the picture.
After two seasons dealing with monsters on “Stranger Things,” –and being a bit of a monster herself– she’s got that fierce, foreboding look down. Brown has a way of exuding intensity on-screen that is riveting.
“Godzilla: King of the Monsters” is a sequel to the 2014, Gareth Edwards reboot of the classic 1954 Japanese science fiction kaiju film. Back then, the special effects were hokey, which helped elevate Godzilla to cult classic status.
Today, modern CGI can make on-screen monsters all too real. In fact, Godzilla and his/her Monster movie knockoff cousins, Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah get rather favorable treatment.
The giant, fire-breathing lizards are called Titans, and they’re waking from a deep slumber to reclaim the earth from errant humans, who have despoiled the planet. They’re “the original and rightful” rulers.
Michael Dougherty directs and co-wrote the sequel. Amazingly, it’s the 35th film in the Godzilla franchise.
Brown scored a major breakout in “Stranger Things.” She received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
She was only 13 at the time, becoming one of the youngest Emmy Award nominees in history.
She’s also the youngest person ever to feature on TIME 100 list of the 100 most influential people. Millie Bobby Brown is also totally socially conscious. She’s the youngest person to be appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
Her previous roles include her 2013 acting debut as a guest star in the ABC fantasy drama “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland,” a spin-off of “Once Upon a Time.” In 2014, she starred in the BBC America paranormal drama-thriller series “Intruders.”
This past January, she was cast to star and produce the film adaptation of “Enola Holmes Mysteries.”
