Before landing its current release date, the newest MonsterVerse installment has been delayed several times and was originally scheduled for a 2020 release. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, it is set to hit theaters and HBO Max simultaneously next week on March 31.
The epic action-adventure Godzilla vs. Kong will pit two of the greatest icons in motion picture history against one another — the fearsome Godzilla and the mighty Kong — with humanity caught in the balance.
This film officially marks the 36th time that Godzilla has been adapted into the big screen as well as the 12th film in the King Kong franchise. It’s also interesting to note that this will be the second film adaptation centering around the showdown between the two incredible monsters with the first one being 1962’s Japanese film King Kong vs. Godzilla.
The film stars Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Rebecca Hall (Christine), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta), Shun Oguri (Gintama), Eiza González (Baby Driver), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2), Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street) and Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight). Among the cast, only Brown and Chandler have both starred in Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Godzilla vs. Kong is the fourth installment in Warner Bros.’ Pictures and Legendary’s Monsterverse. It is directed by Adam Wingard from a script written by Oscar nominee Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean, Deja Vu, Shrek). The film is produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Eric McLeod and Brian Rogers, with Kenji Okuhira, Yoshimitsu Banno, Jon Jashni and Thomas Tull serving as executive producers. Jay Ashenfelter, Jen Conroy and Tamara Kent are co-producers.
The most recent film in Legendary’s MonsterVerse, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, hit theaters last summer. It ended with Godzilla taking his rightful place as the ruler of all Titans. Unfortunately, the movie was a financial disappointment, grossing only $385.9 million against a budget estimated to be as high as $200 million.
