LOS ANGELES – Godzilla lives.

A decade after his last cinematic appearance, the massive monster filled an IMAX screen at Hollywood’s TCL Chinese Theatre on Thursday.

The new film, titled simply “Godzilla,” brings the aquatic creature introduced 60 years ago out of Japan and into the United States, with Honolulu, Las Vegas and San Francisco among his destinations.

And he’s not the only monster in the mix. Two other Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms – MUTOs – threaten the planet.

The monsters feed on radiation, so nations with nuclear power are targets.

“Godzilla” opens in theatres on May 16, two years after the film was announced at Comic-Con.
