Years of build-up have been leading to this moment. Godzilla vs. Kong. Finally we will witness two legends go head to head.
Re-imagined for a modern audience, ‘Godzilla‘ blasted onto our screens in 2014. The film itself was a bit of a slow burn receiving middling reviews. Three years later ‘Kong: Skull Island’ landed. A fun romp featuring Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson set in the same universe as Godzilla that also failed to capture the imagination of critics.
Two years on and Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment, the principle studios behind the franchise, must be seeing adequate box-office returns on the films to date as ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters‘ blasts into the cinema.
The story continues in 2021 as two legendary beasts go head to head in ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’. A grown up Kong, now comparable in size to his opponent, may prove to be mankind’s only line of defence against a fierce enemy.
Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) reprises her role as Madison Russell alongside Alexander Skarsgård (Tarzan) as Nathan Lind.
Godzilla vs. Kong is speculatively scheduled for a March 26th cinematic release in North America and the U.K; Covid restrictions allowing. Other regions should check IMdB for dates.
