The trailer

The trailer leaves fans a lot to unpack. It sees the iconic kaijus become allies to fight against a new threat. It begins with a voiceover claiming how humans were wrong to assume we can hold life only on the earth’s surface, before showing how a whole new empire has risen to threaten everyone’s existence.

New takeaways

While fans are pumped to see the legends team up to fight a whole new antagonist, most seem taken by Godzilla’s new design and the addition of an adorable baby Kong. “We've been given a full-course #Godzilla banquet,” wrote a fan, sharing a meme of how this film will follow Godzilla Minus One. “The Monsterverse is getting more and more ridiculous and I'm here for it. Godzilla taking an ice nap to evolve into his pink form? Perfect. Baby Kong? Makes sense. Evil Orangutan Kaiju King? Sensational. Then they're running away like a couple of bros?” wrote another.

Release plans

Due to the success of Godzilla vs Kong at the box office and on streaming platforms during the Covid-19 pandemic, Legendary had announced a sequel to the film in 2022. In May 2022, Adam was brought on-board again to direct and the film went on-floors in July that year. Filming was wrapped up in November the same year and Godzilla x Kong is scheduled to hit screens on April 12, 2024.
