Two literal giants of the silver screen are ready to finish their battle for supremacy in the big VFX spectacle of the spring: Godzilla vs. Kong. Warner Bros. released an action-packed trailer this weekend, on the heels of a release date bump-up which will unleash the iconic movie monsters on HBO Max audiences on March 26.
Synopsis: Legends collide in Godzilla vs. Kong as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans — instigated by unseen forces — is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.
Directed by Adam Wingard (The Guest, You’re Next) from a screenplay by Eric Pearson (Thor: Ragnarok) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Kong: Skull Island), the movie stars Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza González, Julian Dennison, with Kyle Chandler and Demián Bichir.
The film’s visual effects supervisor is John “DJ” DesJardin, whose myriad credits include Justice League, Watchmen, The Matrix Reloaded / Revolutions and Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League mini-series.
