Legendary Entertainment and Warner Bros. just dropped a trailer for Godzilla vs Kong, a movie set to release on March 26, 2021, in both theaters and on HBO Max.
Grab a small bag of popcorn and check out the Godzilla vs Kong movie trailer
Godzilla is supposed to be a friend to mankind, as is Kong. Why the hell are the two Titans fighting each other?! My best guess is Godzilla is being manipulated by someone or something. I even heard a rumor that MechaGodzilla makes an appearance in the movie…
Check out the scale difference in Kong, too. Producers made Kong much larger than previous movies, making him as tall a Godzilla. I like the change, especially considering the first King Kong movie, Kong: Skull Island (2017), mentioned Kong was still growing and the movie takes place in 1973.
Kong even has what looks like a battle-ax or pike, that glows blue. Odds are Kong’s weapon is fashioned from one of Godzilla’s back spikes, which makes sense when you see it absorb Godzilla’s blue dragon breath.
In the last film in the franchise, Godzilla King of the Monsters, we catch a glimpse of a map showing the location of 17 known Titans. I wonder if we’ll see a few more than Kong and Godzilla in this flick.
