Director Michael Dougherty and stars Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, O’Shea Jackson Jr, and Thomas Middleditch appeared at Comic-Con today to present some spectacular footage from Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Speaking of the many creatures that will appear in the movie, Dougherty said, “It’s like the Crown Jewels of Toho — Rodan, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and there might be a few more surprises.”

The director also revealed that we’ll hear classic Godzilla themes courtesy of composer Bear McCreary.

Mille Bobby Brown will be without superpowers this time around.

When asked about comparisons with Stranger Things, Brown joked, “Because Eleven has powers, it was a lot less terrifying. The Demogorgon was just a tiny bit taller than me. Godzilla and the other monsters are quite a bit larger.”

The film’s new trailer then screened, in which we glimpse the aforementioned monsters (called “titans” here). The plot seems to revolve around mass extinction kicking off on Earth thanks to mankind. The titans need to be coaxed out of hiding to save us, as they are “the only guarantee that life will go on.”

Mass destruction follows, the trailer ending with Charles Dance saying “long live the king” and Godzilla performing one of his trademark roars.
