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.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM - this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into the grown-up superhero Shazam.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face 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. When these ancient superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.
As seen on the Monarch Sciences website, Monarch Outpost 56, where Rodan is contained homages 1956, when Rodan (1956) was released. See more »
The fictional Isla de Mara, geographically placed at the border between Texas and Tamaulipas, is too far North to exhibit the kind of tightly-packed, colonial Spanish architecture shown in the film. This type of urban layout and construction is more appropriate to colonial towns in Central and Southern Mexico. (To wit, street-level scenes were in fact shot in the preserved historical district of Santo Domingo in Mexico City.) See more »

SPOILER: Part of the closing credits are a montage of Monarch records alongside news records covering the aftermath of the Titans' rising. Near the end of the credits, there are various records focusing on Skull Island, Kong's home; this leads into Godzilla vs. Kong (2020). See more »
Attention: extreme stupid story inside. I rate 4 but only because of the special effects department, the plot itself is an absolute disastrous generic numbs*it. I could almost feel how some of my poor brain cells committed suicide... And why a skilled actress like Vera Farmiga plays in such a movie is beyond my understanding. I guess money rules. For kids only and if you really enjoy those shallow and numb action blockbuster movies a la Emmerich.
