Who can’t wait to see these iconic giants battle it out? Godzilla vs. Kong ? Sell me a ticket now. Take my money! Please!
I have been a Godzilla fan since a small child (when that was, I refuse to say). When we were lucky the local station’s post-school afternoon movie was a monster flick. Godzilla was always my favorite. King Kong? Not so much. I’ve even left the newest remakes / sequels unwatched.
It’s been a long road to get Godzilla vs. Kong this far. The film was announced in October 2015 when Legendary announced plans for a shared cinematic universe between Godzilla and King Kong. The film’s writers started in March 2017, and Adam Wingard was announced as the director in May 2017. Shooting started in November 2018 in Hawaii, Australia, and Hong Kong, and ended in April 2019. After being delayed from a planned November 2020 release due to COVID, Godzilla vs. Kong is scheduled for simultaneous release in theaters and on HBO Fox on March 31, 2021.
The film stars Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González, Julian Dennison, Kyle Chandler, and Demián Bichir.
Some Godzilla vs. Kong facts I gleaned from the Wiki Page:
- It’s a sequel to Godzilla: King of Monsters and Kong: Skull Island,
- It is the fourth film in Legendary MonsterVerse,
- The film is also the 36th film in the Godzilla franchise,
- The 12th film in the franchise,
- It’s the fourth Godzilla film to be completely produced by a Hollywood studio.
The trailer looks fairly interesting – but most trailers do. It does seem more inspiring than the blurb put out by Warner Bros. and Legendary.

But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.
Can’t wait until March, or until someone “leaks a copy.”
