WATCH: First Trailer For ‘Godzilla Vs. Kong’ Released
The first trailer for the highly anticipated monster film Godzilla vs. Kong was released online this week. Godzilla vs. Kong will be directed by Adam Wingard and is the fourth film in the Legendary Entertainment MonsterVerse franchise. The film will finally see the two iconic monsters Godzilla and King Kong fight each other to determine who is the true king of the monsters. The movie was originally supposed to be released in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic caused Godzilla vs. Kong to be delayed to 2021 like many other highly anticipated films. Luckily for the fans, Godzilla vs. Kong will premiere simultaneously in theaters and on the HBO Max streaming service.
The trailer opens with people running from an unseen monster’s path of destruction in a city with the main character of the film Peter Lind (Alexander Skarsgård) saying that using Kong is their only chance to stop what is coming. After showing Kong being chained up to a ship, the trailer then cuts to a young girl named Jia (Kaylee Hottle), who is said to be the only human whom Kong can communicate with. The character Ilene Andrews (Rebecca Hall) states that she knew the two had a bond and made a promise to protect her when she had no one to watch over her and believes that Kong did the same in a way. Godzilla is soon seen swimming through the ocean and attacking military aircraft vehicles. As Kong roars down at the ocean where Godzilla is hiding, the giant monster leaps out of the water and attacks the ape. The music starts to pick up as the two giants continue to fight. Returning character Mark Russell (Kyle Chandler) appears points out that Godzilla is out there hurting people and no one knows why. The trailer cuts to Russell’s daughter Madison (Millie Bobby Brown) driving a van and reasoning that something is provoking Godzilla that the humans are unaware of. An unseen character is then heard saying that the myths are real and these two monsters are the last creatures standing from a previous war. The trailer then closes on a final shot of Kong attacking Godzilla while avoiding his infamous atomic breath, promising that one of the titans will fall.
Godzilla vs. Kong will be released both in theaters and on HBO Max on March 26, where fans can finally see which of these two iconic kaiju will come out on top.
