After nearly six decades, the King of Monsters will once again fight the Protector of Skull Island in Godzilla vs Kong, the fourth film from Legendary’s MonsterVerse. Originally scheduled to be released in November, the ongoing pandemic postponed the release date. With HBO Max up and running alongside theaters opening up across the globe, the much-anticipated movie is finally set to release on March 26, 2021.
Godzilla vs Kong Trailer
Check out the first official trailer for Godzilla vs Kong below:
Ahead of its theatrical release, Godzilla vs Kong has managed to keep its plot under tight wraps that has fuelled skyrocketing expectations from the movie. Leveraging on the palpable excitement, Legendary Pictures recently released the first photos from the movie that might be able to shed some light on the premise of this epic clash.
In a recently released clip, a gigantic metallic collar can be seen around Kong’s neck. While nothing about the plot is confirmed, we can only speculate that Kong has been caught by humans and made much more powerful (and angrier) through various inhumane experiments to have a fighting chance against the King of Monsters.
Unlike the previous movies where Godzilla and Kong were shown to be insatiable monsters filled with hatred, Legendary Pictures’ MonsterVerse has made them much more sympathetic. As the two iconic monsters face each other once again, the role of humanity cannot be understated. As Godzilla has been portrayed as more of a hero by saving the world multiple times, we are hoping that the human race might become his likely ally. But with Kong in chains, the plot hints at Monarch playing a significant role in setting the platform for this epic fight.
Godzilla vs Kong is set to release on March 26th, 2021 in select theaters and HBO Max exclusively.
