The monster smackdown- between and the gigantic, “Godzilla vs. Kong” in the MonsterVerse will debut on March 31 simultaneously in movie theaters and on the streaming service HBO Max.
The monster mash-up will launch internationally, where HBO Max is not available, ahead of North America on March 26.
Adam Wingard directed “Godzilla vs. Kong,” the fourth installment in Legendary’s monster universe following “Godzilla,” “Kong: Skull Island” and “Godzilla: King of the Monsters.” Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein wrote the script. The upcoming crossover event — starring Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry — pits the otherworldly giants against each other in an epic battle.
Could this mean that the angry Godzilla we see tearing through these cities is actually a robot in disguise, like in the animation version?
There’s definitely more than meets the eye here. The Godzilla vs. Kong trailer either represents a frame-up, a magic trick, or both. We’re so distracted by the big bad Godzilla that we haven’t even noticed the absence of the one true king. We’re placing bets that this film climaxes with the real Godzilla back-to-back with Kong, taking on a mechanical double and a few other sinister Titans.
The film stars Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies, The Little Drummer Girl), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Rebecca Hall (Christine, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta, Widows), Shun Oguri (Gintama), Eiza González (Baby Driver), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), and Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2). Also starring in the highly-anticipated movie are Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street, Manchester by the Sea) and Demián Bichir (The Nun, The Hateful Eight).
The fourth installment in Warner Bros.’ Pictures and Legendary’s Monsterverse is directed by Adam Wingard from a script written by Oscar nominee Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean, Deja Vu, Shrek). The film is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Eric McLeod, and Brian Rogers, with Kenji Okuhira, Yoshimitsu Banno, Jon Jashni and Thomas Tull serving as executive producers. Jay Ashenfelter, Jen Conroy and Tamara Kent are co-producers.
