get suGodzilla vs. Kong — one of the biggest movies of 2021, with an estimated budget that might go up to $200 million (about Rs. 1,447 crores) — is right around the corner. It’s technically a sequel, as it’s part of Legendary Pictures’ so-called MonsterVerse, following 2014’s Godzilla, 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, and 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. But it doesn’t matter if you haven’t seen the previous movies because Godzilla vs. Kong is essentially about the two giants butting heads and leaving a swathe of destruction in their wake. That’s what audiences are coming to Godzilla vs. Kong for anyway.
And in the interest of monster action, Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard (You’re Next) seems set to serve up even more. Keen-eyed fans have discovered that the Godzilla vs. Kong trailers allude to a more enormous giant — possibly Mechagodzilla — that has likely been made by a sinister company called the Apex Corporation. The synopsis also says that Godzilla vs. Kong has been “instigated by unseen forces”. Godzilla and Kong might have to team up if they want to live to see another day with all that in mind.
At the same time, Wingard has teased that Godzilla vs. Kong will have a definite winner — he’s not going to cop out like most films do, including their previous face-off in 1962’s King Kong vs. Godzilla. That has led fans to pick sides and speculate. Legendary Pictures hasn’t played its hand by announcing more sequels either, but at this point, it’s unclear if the MonsterVerse has a future. After all, Godzilla vs. Kong was the event it wanted to build to — what now? Maybe we’ll have a better idea once we’ve seen it. For now, here’s everything you need to know about Godzilla vs. Kong, including the trailer, the cast, when to expect reviews, and where and when you can watch in your country.
