Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released the first Godzilla vs. Kong trailer and it does look epic in every possible way. The trailer is timely as the film is due to arrive in cinemas and HBO Max in March.
The trailer does reveal some telling moments in the storyline. We see Kong shackled and trapped, possibly by humans who intend to use him in nefarious ways. However, in his journey he crosses paths with Godzilla who intends to maintain his position at the top of the monster food chain.
Also seen in the trailer is Godzilla blasting Kong with his Atomic Breath. Kong is also seen brandishing an axe of sorts. The giant ape has also grown a fair bit since we last saw him in 2017’s Skull Island. For those keeping count, the last time these two monsters tangoed was in 1962. Almost 60 years and thanks to modern special effects their battle is going to be whole lot more epic.
Godzilla vs. Kong sees fearsome monsters Godzilla and King Kong square off in an epic battle for the ages. Humanity however is looking to wipe out both creatures and take back the planet once and for all.
Joining the two CGI monsters on screen are Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Brian Tyree Henry, and Jessica Henwick. Directed by Adam Wingard, Godzilla vs. Kong arrives 26 March 2021.
