With theatres having opened up slowly, two of the most enormous movie monsters are set to be at loggerheads as the trailer for Gozilla vs Kong came out.
Godzilla vs. Kong arrives in both theaters and the HBO Max streaming service on March 26. Godzilla and his origins have been explored in two previous movies, while Kong: Skull Island is the only film in the current Monsterverse to explore Kong's backstory.
Legendary is offering a little taste, a little amuse-bouche, ahead of the (hopefully hearty) appetizer that is the full Godzilla vs. Kong trailer, which is hitting the web this Sunday. However, unexpectedly, they find their path being blocked by an enraged Godzilla and soon an epic clash breaks out.
"However, despite the hopeful news for kaiju fans, FandomWire stresses that "'In-Development' means teams connected to Warner Bros. and Legendary are prepping and writing the following project", which "does not guarantee [the project will] make it to air". Kong roars toward the underwater depths, and Godzilla arises to start wrecking everything, climbing aboard the ship and squaring off with Kong before the King rocks him with a haymaker - all to the tune of Chris Classic's hip-hop anthem "Here We Go".
On the other hand, Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler) announces in Godzilla vs Kong trailer that "Godzilla's out there hurting people and we don't know why".
"Godzilla vs. Kong" trailer is finally here and it promises a fierce battle between two of cinema's most iconic monsters. However, the biggest stars are arguably Godzilla and King themselves, and the recently unveiled trailer teases a series of epic throwdowns. Trading original director Edwards for Trick 'r Treat's Michael Dougherty, the film diverged from the first film dramatically with a more bombastic and colorful approach to monster battles.
The 44-year-old actor walks onto the ship's deck where he gets to see the giant ape, and tells someone off-screen: 'We need Kong.
Kong: Skull Island featured an even bigger cast than Godzilla, including the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, and Toby Kebbell.
