We will have to wait a while to see Godzilla Vs Kong. Just days after the debut of the first action-packed trailer, Warner Bros. has decided to delay its release. That’s the bad news. The good news is that they’ve only pushed it back for a week, meaning it will still be out much earlier than the original release date, heading towards 2021. But for those who might have set aside a day to enjoy the monster goods, plan accordingly . .
Godzilla to Kong will now hit theaters as well as on HBO Max on March 31st. It was previously scheduled for March 26. But the planned rollout will be the same, in that the giant blockbuster will be used in theaters both in the US and internationally, while also landing on HBO Max in the US, for those who want to stream it from the comfort of home. . Previously, the film would arrive on May 21. But Warner Bros. felt it was better to bring these into the world sooner rather than later.
The most recent shift comes as No time to die, the latest James Bond movie, has delayed its release from April 2 to October 8. Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, which was also set for April 2, is now arriving in June. That means Godzilla to Kong will have virtually no direct competition. While box office has been minimal for the past few months, that gives the movie a seemingly decent chance of raking in the money.
Director Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, You are next) is at the helm for the final entry in the MonsterVerse. It will follow in the footsteps of 2019 King of the monsters. The franchise also includes 2014’s Godzilla and 2017’s Kong: Skull Island. The upcoming monster movie will see two of the cinema ‘s most enduring beasts go from toe to toe in one massive spectacle.
Marketing has promised that “one will fall,” suggesting there will be a final winner. Although the Godzilla Vs Kong trailer also suggests that there will be another threat thrown into the mix, possibly from the Mechagodzilla variety. Wingard recently said on Instagram, “I know it looks like a lot, but this is just the tip of the monster iceberg.” So it seems we still have a lot to learn about this battle over the centuries.
Aside from the monsters, there is also a stacked A-list human cast on board for the movie. It includes Alexander Skarsgard, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Shun Oguri, Eiza Gonzalez, Julian Dennison, and Demian Bichir. Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler also star King of the monsters. The film’s legendary co-financing with Warner Bros. At first, the two disagreed when WarnerMedia announced plans to release the full slate of 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max. But they came to an agreement and everything will go as planned, just a week later than previously expected. This news was previously reported by Variety.
