It’s shaping up to be the biggest battle royale since Freddy fought Jason back in 2003. Godzilla vs Kong is slated for release May 22, 2020, from director Adam Wingard (You’re Next, Blair Witch). Not much is known about the film beyond the fact that it’ll be a sequel to 2014’s Godzilla, 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, and next year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters (stomping into US theaters on May 31st).
Actors attached to Godzilla vs Kong include Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Eiza González, Jessica Henwick, and The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira (though the latter is merely rumored to be participating at this point). Plot details were scant right up until yesterday afternoon when an official synopsis hit the internet! Here it is:
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.
Since the film is still over 18-months away from being released, we’ll be waiting quite some time still before we get a trailer or any additional details. In the meantime, have a look at the synopsis and trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters below.
Members of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species-thought to be mere myths-rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
