Godzilla: King of Monsters Director Mike Dougherty Interview
With Godzilla: King of Monsters now playing in theaters around the world, Collider recently sat down with director Mike Dougherty for an extended interview in the Collider studio. During the wide-ranging conversation, Dougherty went into great detail about the making of the sequel, how he landed the job, why Mothra was such a daunting creature to include, how the writer’s room impacted Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs Kong, how he designed the massive action set pieces, what he learned from the test screening process, deleted scenes, what surprised him about the process of making his first big budget movie, and so much more.
As most of you know from the trailers, Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the sequel to the 2014 film and stars Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Bradley Whitford, Ken Watanabe, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Thomas Middleditch, Sally Hawkins, Mothra, the three-headed beast King Ghidorah, and the titanic Pteranodon Rodan.
