PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.
It's revealed that Ghidorah can regenerate his heads after Godzilla bites his left head off, which makes sense as he is said to have inspired the legends of the Greek Hydra. Godzilla kills the middle head by incinerating it with his nuclear pulses in his Burning Form, just like how Hercules slew the Hydra by burning off its heads so they couldn't regenerate. And even after Godzilla vaporizes the rest of his body, the center head is shown still alive and struggling in Godzilla's jaws, just like how the mythical Hydra had one immortal head that lived even after Hercules severed it and forced him to bury it beneath a rock.
I made us breakfast... It's, uh, eggs, toast and what was once bacon.
Dr. Emma Russell: And which do you recommend?
Madison Russell: The toast and eggs.
Dr. Emma Russell: Thank you.
The monsters are stopped by transmitting the Alpha Call over the loudspeakers at Fenway Park in Boston. Allowing for the speed of sound, it should have been hours before many of them heard it, but they all stopped at once.
The Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures logos appear in a Babylonian carving of monsters.
During their appearance, Godzilla's stomping and roar is heard.
