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. Legends collide as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.
I know it sounds like Eastenders‘ 1986 Dirty Den / Angie Watts Christmas divorce episode but this is one of my most anticipated movies of 2021, assuming it comes out in 2021. (I didn’t really enjoy Kong: Skull Island, but I’m a fan of almighty scraps where I don’t really mind which side wins. See also Alien vs Predator.)
Here’s the (rest of the) synopsis:
Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe.
The film stars Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González, Julian Dennison, with Kyle Chandler and Demián Bichir.
It’s directed Adam Wingard, from a screenplay by Eric Pearson (Thor: Ragnarok) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Kong: Skull Island). And it definitely isn’t a remake of 1962 movie King Kong vs Godzilla!
Godzilla vs Kong is out in the US on 26 March (on HBO Max and in cinemas). In the UK it’s out on 21 May, I think – at the time of writing, IMDB has that listed as 26 March too.
