Godzilla: King of the Monsters is set to give fans a good old-fashioned summer smackdown as some of cinema's greatest creatures collide in what looks set to become one of this year's biggest blockbusters.
The upcoming film is the long-awaited sequel to 2014's Godzilla and will see the legendary movie monster square off against three of his most iconic foes: Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah. Moreover, it will also serve as the third film in Legendary's MonsterVerse and (presumably) lay some groundwork for next year's heavily-anticipated Godzilla vs. Kong.
Taking all that into account, it's easy to see why it's destined for success. That being said, in order for it to truly succeed, it is vital that it doesn't fall victim to some of the pitfalls of its predecessor.
While it's true that the 2014 reboot received praise for its impressive visuals and strong direction, a lot of that praise centred on the fact that a Hollywood production managed to stay true to the character's Toho origins (unlike the heavily-criticised 1998 film) and, thus, overlooked the fact that the film was far from perfect.
