Creature Feature fans rejoice. The first trailer for the long-awaited (at least for some of us) “Godzilla vs. Kong” movie finally landed over the weekend and boy does it leave us with a lot to ponder. This star-studded sequel to 2014’s “Godzilla”, 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island”, and 2019’s “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” throws a lot at us in its first real look – lots of large scale action, numerous returning characters and an epic showdown between cinema’s most renowned monsters. Will it all come together in a smart and compelling way? Who knows, but it sure looks to be a lot of fun.
So it looks like Godzilla is ticked off and many of the familiar faces can’t quite figure out why. One significant line of dialogue offers some insight. “There was a war and they’re the last ones standing.” So apparently the two beasts have a history. But something else seems to have Godzilla worked up and wrecking havoc around the globe. So those pesky humans need Kong to defend them against the mighty Godzilla and a young girl who is able to communicate with the former Skull Island native looks to be the key. Lots of ground to cover but I’m completely onboard.
“Godzilla vs. Kong” opens March 26th in theaters and streaming on HBO Max. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing yet or taking a pass.
