  • Perfect for anyone who loves a good monster flick

    "Godzilla fans will naturally love Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, which dives further into the lore of the MonsterVerse. But anyone who loves great monster flicks like Pacific Rim or Cloverfield will appreciate Monarch’s cinema-quality CGI and 300-foot titans. It’s also a must-watch for any fans who plan on seeing Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire next year. If you enjoy giant monsters who smash things, this one’s for you."

  • Great for MonsterVerse fans seeking a character-driven tale

    "Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is perfect for fans of the expanding MonsterVerse who want to dig deeper into what Titans mean for the world. For those who enjoy the typical action-packed monster film, there's a healthy dose of Titans and connections to Godzilla (2014) and Kong: Skull Island. However, it will also appeal to those interested in a character-driven story about family, trauma, and secrets. Those interested in understanding what a world post-Titans would look like and how citizens cope with that knowledge will be intrigued by this thoughtful MonsterVerse entry."
