It’s been an outstanding week for Godzilla fans. First, we got a monster-packed new trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Then, we got a very fun fan-made remix trailer that looked at the upcoming movie through an old-school kaiju lens. And now, the movie’s supporting cast of “Titans” have their very own stunning character posters.

First up, the three-headed dragon, Ghidorah:

(You’ll notice a theme here, in that each image makes you hope you’re never on any kind of aircraft when and if a giant monster war ever breaks out.)

Next up, the giant beak and claws of prehistoric menace Rodan:

And, finally, my personal favorite, buggy badass Mothra—looking rather “death from above!” here:

Nice little (hopefully deliberate) detail on these:

- On King Ghidorah’s the fighter jets are heading horizontally to the kaiju, possibly on attack vectors. Because he’s an enemy.

- On Rodan’s they’re carriers / personnel helicopters heading away from Rodan trying to avoid him, since he’s a neutral / wildcard kaiju.

- On Mothra’s poster they’re attack helicopters almost looking like they’re escorting / protecting Mothra, since she’s the closest thing to a good kaiju.

Or I’m just over-analyzing.
