Not since the original Godzilla vs. King Kong in 1962 have moviegoers had to answer that question. Back then it was East versus West. The United States with King Kong and Japan with Godzilla. That match ended up in a much-contested draw. But on March 26, the real heavyweight champion will be crowned.
Godzilla is clearly the aggressor in the film. Running amok for some unknown reason but he seems to have set his sights on Kong. In what appears to be a homage to the original King Kong story, Kong is removed from his island home and brought to civilization. Of course, you know how that always turns out. Will these two titans destroy each other or will they combine their strength to confront the real threat? Godzilla vs Kong pits God versus King…who wins?
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes the long-awaited face-off between two icons, Godzilla vs Kong, the next epic adventure in Legendary’s cinematic Monsterverse, directed by Adam Wingard.
Legends collide in “Godzilla vs. Kong” as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.
