Yeah, that's pretty much correct. Simple story, great visuals and fun action. And the story isn't Rampage-level dumb nor is it falling apart like BvS.

For the folks that have seen KOTM. When I looked closely at the final trailer (Somewhere Over the Rainbow) it looked like there was a scene in which Ghidorah is bringing Godzilla to the upper atmosphere but it looked to me liked Godzilla whiped him with his tail and then Ghidorah dropped him. Maybe what I saw was not that scene, but does Ghidorah purposely drop Godzilla or does Godzilla do something that causes Ghidorah to drop him?

The tail slap is from when they fight on the ground.

Ghidorah purposefully drops Godzilla, he doesn't let go because Godzilla fights him or anything. It's because Godzilla is already unconscious by the time they reach the upper atmosphere, because Ghidorah strangled him with his tails.

Sorry if this has already been asked, but does Mothra get a epic entrance in Boston?
And also how much of Mothra on Rodan action to we actually get?

Yes Mothra dives bombs towards Ghidorah
about 2 mins worths but it's fast paced and exciting

Mothra literally explodes out of the sky, punching a hole in the clouds accompanied by a ray of light. It's pretty epic.

After Mothra gets intercepted by Rodan and they face each other, most of the fighting is done in the background. But we get a close-up uninterrupted action sequence when Mothra struggles against Rodan trying to kill her, leading up to the stinger scene.

Hi guys, newbie here.

A question for Vandarker: How does Godzilla scale next to Ghidorah? 'Cause from the concept arts and SHMA figures, Ghidorah really towered over Godzilla (like it's not even close), but in the trailers they're kinda comparable size-wise/body mass.

Thank you!

Ghidorah's a little taller but not by much
And they're pretty even in strength was a slight edge towards Ghidorah on land and Godzilla in the ocean

Ghidorah has an edge over Godzilla with his rapid healing ability.

He doesn't tower over Godzilla. Ghidorah is bigger but not much of a drastic size difference. But when he strikes a pose he looks much bigger cause he's taller and has those humongous wings.

There were two preview screenings in my country, once in regular format, once in 4D screen X.

Would you care to elaborate? Would you explain the Godzilla Mexico battle, how does he fight in the water?

How much of rodan do we see in Washington DC

King Ghidorah chases after the Argo but before he can get them Godzilla jumps out of the ocean and tackles Ghidorah kinda brief but Godzilla does bite of one the necks before the Oxygen. Destroyer hits
Pretty much what you saw in the Comic Con trailer it's very brief shame though

Pretty much how a crocodile would snatch its prey and try to hold it down underwater. In this case Godzilla is the crocodile and Ghidorah is the prey, and the fight itself, brief as it is, is mostly thrashing, struggling and water splashing. Ghidorah tries to escape from Godzilla's clutches and he snaps at the fleeing Argo, but Godzilla is able to suppress him. At one point Godzilla bites down on Ghidorah's neck and uses both hands to tear one of his heads off.

Ghidorah's movements are slightly restricted underwater while Godzilla is faster. On the land it's the opposite. Ghidorah is much faster than Godzilla which allows him to evade Godzilla's attacks and get more hits on him. In the Boston battle the two are pretty even.

We only see Rodan briefly attacking the air force led by the Argo when they try to attack Ghidorah.

No, at least from what we can see onscreen. The fight is largely underwater and physical struggling.
