Godzilla Vs Kong Trailer (2021) Shows Epic Battle Between Two Titans

The trailer for the next film in the modern Godzilla franchise dropped today, putting the iconic kaiju against King Kong himself. This is the first time in 58 years the two classic monsters have shared the big screen. This new match-up in late 2015, when Legendary Pictures moved Kong: Skull Island to Warner Bros. after previously being at Universal. This was a clear sign that Legendary wanted to put Kong and Godzilla in the same film, which they announced a month or so later. Of course, like most everything, Godzilla Vs Kong was delayed by the pandemic, so this new trailer is welcome news to Monsterverse fans.

Millie Bobby Brown is in the film, reprising her role from the undeservedly maligned Godzilla: King of the Monsters. She will be joined in this film by Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Alexander Skarsgård. The central conceit of the new Godzilla vs Kong trailer is that humanity “needs” Kong to stop Godzilla. There is a child (of course) who can “control” or, at least, calm Kong. Thus, he’s shipped across the sea on a giant barge until Godzilla shows up to wreck shit. We see some scenes of them fighting in the open sea (advantage Godzilla) and then in a city setting (advantage Kong).

Since King of the Monsters, it appears that Godzilla—who was the “good guy” in the past two films—has started attacking humanity for no good reason. A brief flash of an investigation board suggests that humanity is stumped about the titan’s behavior and he needs to be stopped. However, the smart money says that, by the end of the second act, Godzilla and Kong will be teamed up fighting some other big bad.

Godzilla vs Kong debuts in theaters March 26 and on HBO Max (In the US) the same day.
