The first trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters premiered during the Warner Bros. Hall H presentation at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer really brought the house down and since then, fans have been eager to see more of the mayhem that director Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat; Krampus) has in store for the sequel to Gareth Edwards’ 2014 film.
Recently, it was announced that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) have given the official rating to Godzilla: King of the Monsters as well as the description for the rating. The film is officially rated PG-13 due to sequences of monster action violence and destruction, and for some language.
In response to the official PG-13 rating, Dougherty tweeted his enthusiastic response particularly for the rating description. You can check out Dougherty’s tweet down below:

Honestly, this rating description for Godzilla: King of the Monsters is pretty epic, so it’s easy to understand why Dougherty is so proud of what mayhem he’s brought to life in this new entry in the mythos of the character.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the third entry in Legendary Pictures’ MonsterVerse. The franchise began in 2014 and continued in 2017 with Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island. After Godzilla: King of the Monsters opens in theaters in 2019, two of the most iconic movie monsters will clash on the big screen once again in Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020. Adam Wingard is set to direct that epic crossover.
Directed by Michael Dougherty from a script by Dougherty, Max Borenstein and Zach Shields, the film stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Ken Watanabe, Zhang Ziyi, Anthony Ramos, Jonathan Howard, Aisha Hinds, Elizabeth Ludlow and Randy Havens.
