We won’t see Godzilla vs. Kong in cinemas this year but fortunately we now have an official look at the two monsters. This latest image comes from a Playmates Toys packaging and it shows both Godzilla and King Kong engaging in battle.
A few takeaways from the image is that King Kong has certainly grown a fair bit since we last saw him on Skull Island. The Kaiju ape is now the same size as his opponent, the giant lizard, Godzilla. They’re also engaging in a fight on board an aircraft carrier, which basically puts humans in the crosshairs of this epic battle.
Although we have yet to see a trailer or teaser from the film, this latest image provides the best possible look at the upcoming film and it is no doubt intriguing. Plot details have been scarce other than the official synopsis that reads…
“In a new world where man and monster now coexist, Monarch must lead the way to a prosperous future alongside the Titans, keeping humanity in check. However, rival factions that want to manipulate the Titans for war begin to rise under the guise of a nefarious conspiracy, threatening to wipe out all life on the planet. Meanwhile, on Skull Island, strange seismic activity draws the attention of Godzilla and Kong alike.”
Godzilla vs. Kong stars Eiza González, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Alexander Skarsgård, Kyle Chandler and Lance Reddick. The film arrives in cinemas in May 2021.
