Apple’s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters trailer pits Kurt Russell against Godzilla

Apple has its fingers in many pies and now it’s getting into the monster business with an upcoming TV show. The company has released the first trailer for Monarch: Legacy of Monsters and while the title might not make it super clear, this is very much a Godzilla series.The show is based on Legendary’s Monsterverse and it ties into the studio’s recent Godzilla movies. It’s partially set in the wake of a battle between Godzilla and the Titans that destroyed much of San Francisco, but it takes place across several three generations. Real-life father and son Kurt Russell and Wyatt Russell play the same character, Army officer Lee Shaw, in different eras. Shaw encounters a pair of siblings who are exploring their family’s connection to the shadowy organization Monarch, which tracks Godzilla, King Kong and other giant beasts.The trailer doesn’t give a ton away about the show other than to provide looks at the iconic monster (including a shot that invokes the first T. rex encounter from Jurassic Park), some of the cast in action and a ruined San Francisco. But it does seem that Monarch: Legacy of Monsters will include much of the spectacle fans have enjoyed from the movies. You’ll be able to watch the first two installments of the 10-episode season on November 17, and a new one will arrive on Apple TV+ each week until January 12.This article originally appeared on Engadget at
