“Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” Drops a Titan-Sized New Trailer

A brand new trailer for Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire has stomped into view, fleshing out more of the story in director Adam Wingard’s follow-up to Godzilla vs. Kong. 

The new look gives us some background on the balance that existed between the greatest of apes in Kong, the king of the Titans in Godzilla, and the rest of the world. Godzilla was a protector of nature; Kong was a protector of humanity—but now that balance is about to be obliterated. Kong, Godzilla, and the young girl Jia (Kaylee Hottle) can sense something is coming. “Something even they’re afraid of,” Ilene Andrews (Rebecca Hall) explains.

The new threat is so great, in fact, that once again, as they ultimately did in Godzilla vs. Kong to take down Mecha-Godzilla, these two legendary beasts will have to team up to take on the new threat. The new trailer reveals a Kong-like colossal ape who doesn’t appear to have any of Kong’s empathy, as well as a creature that’s even more of a challenge than Mecha-Godzilla was.

So where has this challenger been all this time? It turns out, the problems have been hidden beneath the surface of our world and are connected to the origins of both Godzilla and Kong. Brian Tyree Henry joins returning Godzilla vs. Kong stars Rebecca Hall 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), and works once again wth Godzilla vs. Kong alums cinematographer Ben Seresin, production designer Tom Hammock, editor Josh Schaeffer, and composers Tom Holkenborg and Antonio Di Iorio.

Check out the new trailer here. Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire arrives on March 29.
