The last film did have a director who seems to make 2 good scenes (sometimes 1) per movie. He made Monsters and (was sort of fired) from Rogue One.
The last GodIlla film had an amazing Godzilla entrance at the airport ... Then it cut away. It also had the second most Mortal Kombat death scene in Godzilla history with his death breath into the mouth of the MUTO.
This film is being directed by the same guy who made Trick R Treat (best horror film most people haven't seen) and Krampus. It's the set up for Godzilla Vs King Kong which is out next year.
This one seems to have a better budget. Multiple monsters and a proper focus on destruction.
