Warner Bros. has released a Godzilla-sized cache of new photos for their upcoming battle of the titans, Godzilla vs. Kong. We’ve seen enough footage now to know that director Adam Wingard’s film is at least setting us up to root for Kong here. That was made evident in the first trailer, where we learned that Kong seemed to be the protector of an orphaned girl named Jia (Kaylee Hottle). As we wrote at the time, it’s hard to root against that dyanmic! The trailer and subsequent footage also gave us a Godzilla seemingly hellbent on destruction, which was a departure from Gareth Edwards’s Godzilla (2014) and Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), in which the radioactive colossus was humanity’s protector.
Joining Godzilla, Kong, and Kaylee Hottle in the new images are Alexander Skarsgård, Rebecca Hall, Kyle Chandler, Demián Bichir, Julian Dennison, Millie Bobby Brown, Brian Tyree Henry, and Eiza González. Check out the new images below. Godzilla vs. Kong hits theaters and HBO Max on March 31.
Here’s the official synopsis from Warner Bros.:
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.
