American monster movie Godzilla is coming with a new movie to add up in the franchise. Godzilla vs. Kong is a sequel of two previous movies, Godzilla: King of the monsters(2019) and King Kong: Skull Island(2016), all directed by Adam Wingard. Here is everything we know about it yet:
Godzilla vs Kong Release Date: Is it final yet?
The release date for Godzilla vs. Kong is moving up and down since it was first announced. First, the movie was scheduled to release on May 29, 2020. But then the studio preponed it to May 22.
This time it was clashing with the blockbuster hit Fast and Furious 9, which would not serve good to the Godzilla vs. Kong movie. Thus to resolve this issue, the movie release was changed to March 13, 2020. Even after this date, the Warner Bros. studio hinted that this date might be flexible, and that turned out to be right. Finally, the release was postponed to November 20, 2020. This is almost 18 months after the release of the previous movie. Let’s just hope this time it is finally fixed although we wouldn’t mind if it comes before that.
Cast: Who’s returning and new additions in Godzilla vs Kong?
Millie Bobbie Brown, as Madison Russell and Kyle Chandler as her father, Mark Russell, will surely come back for the new movie. Zhang Ziyi, who played dual roles in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, as twin Monarch scientists Dr. Ling Chen and Dr. Ilene Chen, is returning.
Among the new faces joining the cast, Alexander Skarsgård(True Blood, Big Little Lies) is a major one.
It was announced in October 2018 that he would be a part of the new Godzilla franchise movie. Other major names who will be joining the cast of Godzilla vs. Kong are Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead, Black Panther), Jessica Henwick(Iron Fist), Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), and Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3). Thus we can see that cast is still expanding.
Plot: What’s the story?
In the King of the monsters, Monarch tries to wake up the monsters called Titans, among which Godzilla is one. They do so to kill them so that they can cleanse the Earth. But two very dangerous monsters are awakened called as Mothra, which is a giant moth and a massive flying monster called Rodan. In the climax of the movie, Godzilla engages in combat with Rodan and defeats it with the help of Mothra. Thus, called Alpha or King of all the monsters.
All the Godzilla movies are set in the present time, whereas the Kong movie was set in 1967. This war between Godzilla and Titans which triggered the return of Kong to the present world. Thus this movie will cover the clash between Godzilla and Kong. And maybe if Kong defeats Godzilla, he will finally acquire his name ‘King Kong.’
Here’s an official synopsis:
“In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.”
We will have to wait for any more details regarding the film until then sit tight and maybe rewatch the previous films.
