The official art and making of book for Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Following the global success of Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures' and Legendary Pictures' cinematic Monsterverse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. 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 super-species--thought to be mere myths--rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance.

The Art of Godzilla: King of the Monsters is an in-depth behind the scenes look at the epic movie. Packed with concept art, on-set photography, and insight from key members of the production--including director Michael Dougherty--this beautiful book tells the story of how Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah were brought to terrifying life.
