Synopsis: In 1999, the Janjira nuclear plant was mysteriously destroyed with most hands lost including supervisor Joe Brody's colleague and wife, Sandra. Years later, Joe's son, Ford, a US Navy ordnance disposal officer, must go to Japan to help his estranged father who obsessively searches for the truth of the incident. In doing so, father and son discover the disaster's secret cause on the wreck's very grounds. This enables them to witness the reawakening of a terrible threat to all of Humanity, which is made all the worse with a second secret revival elsewhere. Against this cataclysm, the only hope for the world may be Godzilla, but the challenge for the King of the Monsters will be great even as Humanity struggles to understand the destructive ally they have.

- Now, Joe--

Do it!

Now. Wind it down.


Sandra, are you there?

We're turning back.

Let's go.

Oh, my God.

Joe, are you there?

Joe, there's been a breach.

We're heading back to the containment seal.

Listen. You need to get out of there.

If there's been a reactor breach,

you won't last five minutes...

...with or without the suits.

Do you hear me?

I hear you. We're coming!

I'll meet them there myself.

Put the safety doors on manual override.

I cannot do that!

Keep the doors open.

My wife is still in there!

Come on...

...let's go!

Tell me this door's...

...on manual.

Yeah. But we are starting to breach!

I'm here.

Soon as they're through, I'll seal it.

Sandra, can you...

...hear me? I'm at the door.


Sandra, I'm waiting for you.

I'm at the checkpoint.

But you have to run as fast as you can.

I am!

Kenji. Kenji...

...we need to go!


Close the door!

Seal the corridor

or the whole city will be exposed.


- Joe? Joe, can you hear me?

- Yes.

- Are you there?

- Sandra, I'm here. Can you hear me?


Joe, it's too late. We're not coming.

No, don't say that! Don't you say that!

Run as hard as you can, honey.

Joe, you have to close the door.

You have to live for our son.

- Joe, seal the door! Now!

- Oh, my God.

Five seconds! Four seconds!

I'm sorry.

Take care of Ford.

Be a good father.

I Will.

We didn't make it.

Let's go out!

Hurry! Come on! Ford!

On your feet!

You got family waiting for you?

I hope so.

How long you been away?

Fourteen months.

Take it slow.

It's the one thing they

don't train you for.

All right! Let's go!

- I can't tell you.

- Can I see it?

Don't let him see.

Whoa. Oh, my God.

- It's a welcome home cake.

- Look at that.
