Godzilla

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.

Ten...

...nine, eight...

...seven, six...

...five, four...

...three, two...

...one.

Dr. Serizawa?

Jerry Boyd. I'm warning you, it's a mess.

It's just a total mess.

Monarch sent me in this morning.

Took a look around,

but I told them we needed you.

They picked up a radiation pocket

out here last month.

They got excited, thinking

they had a uranium deposit.

They started stacking up

the heavy machinery and then...

Well, the valley floor...

...collapsed into a cavern below.

Just dropped away. Just gone.

Best guess right now is

about 40 miners went down with it.

This way.

When they first discovered this pocket, the

radiation levels were only half as strong.

It's almost as if contact

with the outside air...

...started catalyzing something.

Some kind of fossils, right?

I've been digging holes for 30 years,

I've never seen anything like it.

Oh, my God. Is it possible?

Is it him?

No.

This is much older.

Hey, guys. You gotta see this.

What is it?

Some kind of egg?

A dormant spore?

The bones are fossilized...

...but this formation seems to be

perfectly preserved.

This one looks broken.

It's like something...

...came out of it.

I'll get it. It's probably for me.

No, Takashi.

No. Takashi, just listen to me

for a second.

I'm asking for the meeting because

if I have to shut the reactor down...

...you're not gonna want to

read about it in a memo.

I've been following these tremors

since they started in the Philippines...

...and now they're in our own backyard.

No, no, no. Hayato says...

...l need to go through you about this.

Look, I'm just...

...trying to follow the protocols set forth

by the company. That's all. It's my job.

He's awake.

Oh, I know. He got up early.

What are we gonna do?

Get dressed. I'll figure it out.

"Okay?

"Okay

Later, Dad.

With all due respect, Takashi, and honor...

...respect and honor, with all of that...

...I'm an engineer. I don't like

unexplained frequency patterning...

...near a plant where I'm responsible.

I need a meeting. Make it happen.

Bye, Mom!

He made you a sign.

- What?

- Your birthday sign.

- He worked so hard.

- Oh, God.

I'm gonna come home early.

I'll take the car and pick him up...

...and we can get a proper cake. Okay?

Listen, I need to know...

...that it's not the sensors. Okay?

I can't be calling this meeting

and look like the American maniac.

So when we get there...

...don't even bother coming up.

Just grab a team and go down to Level 5.

You're not a maniac.

I mean, you are, just not about this.

Must be something we're not thinking of.

Happy birthday.

What? Is it--?

- Yes, it is. Ha, ha.

- Oh, I forgot all about it.

- Happy birthday.

- Thank you.

I should have a birthday more often.

Ha, ha.

JOE". What is this?

MAN". Seismic anomaly.

This graph is minutes.

X is minutes, not days. This is now.

Wait, hold on. Seismic activity?

Seismic?

You're talking about earthquakes?

No, earthquakes are random, jagged.

This is consistent, increasing.

This is a pattern.

All right. Let's make this quick.

Takashi. What the hell is going on?

Have you seen this?

Yeah. Maybe not such...

...good time for a meeting.

What's the source?

Where's the epicenter?

We don't know. But

it keeps getting stronger.

It's gotta be centered somewhere.

Hayato.

No one else is reporting it.

We are contacting every other plant

in the Kanto region.

Tokai, Fujiyama.

They're unaffected.

But my guess is these readings are just

aftershocks from the Philippine earthquake.

Are we at full function?

Yes, we are.

But perhaps we should be
