Godzilla meets the spirit of Judy Garland in the new TV spot for Godzilla: King of the Monsters (out May 31) which finds images of King Ghidorah, Mothra, Rodan, and, of course, ‘Zilla himself soundtracked by “Over the Rainbow,” the song first performed by Garland in The Wizard of Oz.
No news as to whether any of the sequences are set in Kansas.
About five years have passed in the film since the events depicted in 2014’s Godzilla, which isn’t nearly enough time for people to stop freaking out about the discovery that they share the planet with you-know-who.
“The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting,” director Michael Dougherty told EW last year. “Godzilla hasn’t been seen since that destructive finale, “but there’s paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.”
Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Ken Watanabe, and Sally Hawkins, among others.
