“Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” Trailer Roars Into View

For most of the running time of Godzilla vs. Kong, the two legendary titans were battling each other. That changed towards the film’s climatic final battle, when Mecha-Godzilla arrived on the scene, conceived of and controlled by the planet’s truest enemy (human beings, obviously), which made both Godzilla and Kong realize they weren’t enemies. In fact, in a certain light, they could be incredible teammates if called upon. Godzilla vs. Kong ended with the two behemoths tag-teaming Mecha-Godzilla and taking the metallic monster down. Now, in the first trailer for the follow-up, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, the cinema’s two most iconic movie monsters are side-by-side again, this time against a mysterious foe that goes unnamed but is certain to be an even bigger challenge.

The new threat has been hidden beneath the surface of our world and is connected to the origins of both Godzilla and Kong, and Kong’s home, Skull Island. Godzilla vs Kong director Adam Wingard returns, along with stars Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle. Newcomers include Dan Stevens, Alex Ferns, and Fala Chen. Wingard directs from a script by Godzilla vs. Kong scribe Terry Rossio, Simon Barrett (You’re Next), and Jeremy Slater (Moon Knight).

Wingard is also once again working with Godzilla vs. Kong alums in cinematographer Ben Seresin, production designer Tom Hammock, editor Josh Schaeffer, and composers Tom Holkenborg and Antonio Di Iorio.
